Love of ceramics

Friends Cheryl Johnson, military spouse, and Heather Cole-Smith, veteran, met in 2003 at a Ceramic Certification Class.

Drunk on noise

Consuming music on a semi-professional basis - as I have done for the past eight years writing for this fine rag - has a way of distorting one's taste and inclinations. I grew up in a cocoon of air-tight pop songs from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. These three-minute modern

One thing I have found out about Tacoma is that this city is full of surprises. Around every corner there is something new to eat, drink, or hear that you have never experienced before. Sometimes it's just out of sight, and out of mind, but when we finally see it

Undisputed giants

With screams for Bruno Mars' 24K Magic World Tour stop still echoing in the corridors enclosing the Tacoma Dome, this week brings two massive top-40 acts to the same venue - and that's before Lady Gaga draws her thousands of little monsters next weekend. This is shaping up to be

Summer theater classes

Summer is not known for its overabundance of plays being put up by local theaters. Generally, productions are being cast and assembled for the forthcoming season, leaving a bit of an entertainment gap in the hotter months.

Minidress madness
