Trouve and Urban Gourmet and Garden

Mommapalooza Yeah.  Mother’s Day is imminent.  Embarrassingly, I must admit I have made no purchases for either of the mothers on my list — neither his, nor mine — and time is running out.  Enter the Francophile-ic lovey-ness of Trouve, which, yes, will be closing, but not until July.  A recent

Bob’s the word

So there we were at Masa, and we saw this amazingly fabulous haircut.  Just prior to that trip, there we were with a group of girlfriends, and we saw this amazingly similar, amazingly fabulous haircut.  And there I was, home alone watching Shear Genius (a guilty secret pleasure, shhhhh, don’t

Sling back flats

The greatest benefit of this summer is the new sling back flats. They’re adorable shoes that go with anything: a pair of shorts, Capris, skirts, and my favorite skinny jeans. At school I have seen them in different styles and colors. The sling back flats have an elegant look. You can

Marauding Molly in the house

Two Dockyard Derby Dames Roller Derby Marauding Molly team members show off their fine style with last Saturday’s bout announcer Nathaniel. When he’s not announcing Derby, he announces burlesque, wrestling and even wrestles — just not in these clothes. His duds are from a variety of sources, beginning with the flashy vest

Night to Shine (and Sparkle!)

OK, like, everybody listen up because I’m about to tell you about the most amazing party at Tacoma Art Museum ever. It’s called “Night to Shine (and Sparkle!),” and it was planned for teens by teens. Here’s how it went down: Last October Tacoma Art Museum invited teens from Tacoma

Lennon magic in Olympia

Magic was captured in Olympia Tuesday in the notes to a song that a Steinway & Sons upright piano drew out of John Lennon, a haunting call to peace and love made more poignant after Lennon’s assassination.  Lennon bought the Model Z piano in London in 1970 and composed and recorded

Carmen’s party continues

It’s so nice when you return from a festive Hawaiian island vacation and the party only continues. As soon as Natasha and I grabbed our bags at the airport, Darling Damon and Little Leah picked us up and rolled us directly into Doyle’s Public House. Familiar haunts are fun when you’ve

Beer buds boast Bob

Few beer events are more heart warming and exclusive than the annual tapping of Bob’s Brown Ale from Georgetown Brewing Company. Once the brew is gone, it’s gone; never will it be sipped again — until the following year’s event. Mark your calendars Monday, May 14, at these finer beer-sipping venues.

Porter\'s Place

My last visit to New Orleans was at once exhilarating and disappointing. Exhilarating because I was lucky enough to experience exquisite meals at Bayona, Mike’s on the Avenue and the G&E Courtyard Grill. But disappointing because, while dining out at these innovative upscale restaurants, I was missing out on the

Vertigo Lounge’s Mojito

Heaven on the 26th floor? I can only imagine what it’s like to work in a hotel bar. On a good day, you’re dealing with some heavy hitter with a sizable expense account who, after being over-served, might overtip with the company credit card. But on most days, you’re serving

72-Hour Film Competition, Knowledge Night and more

THE FILM 72-Hour Film Competition You know how sometimes you watch a particularly crappy movie and you think to yourself, “Even I could make a better film than that!”? Apparently, the people at Tacoma’s Grand Cinema agree with you, and that is why they gave folks with a video camera and $50
