Summer Movie Preview

This summer will give us another impossible mission for Tom Cruise and a young Han Solo going solo and more Jurassic mayhem, but I'm not highlighting any of those films in my annual roundup of the June-to-September movies I'm most excited to see. Nor am I including The Incredibles 2, The

Back to Life

In the Pacific Northwest, it can sometimes feel like no one ever truly leaves for good, especially in Washington. If you're an artistic type, there exists a healthy cycle of rising up through the local ranks, cutting your teeth on the strange and occasionally prickly scene, before uprooting and going

Roxanne Murphy

At last Saturday’s two-year anniversary party at the Tempest Lounge, all eyes softened when they saw Roxanne Murphy, the PR bitty from the city, in this sweet Chinese dress. She calls this look “Asian up the Indian” (her mother’s side of the family is from the Nooksack Tribe just outside of

Dang.

Inspired by vintage fashions, loud colors, fun prints, and the chance to have one-of-a-kinds, Brooke McLaughlin created Dang. She describes the Dang. line as “a casual fun look inspired by rockabilly culture.” She creates hats, purses, dresses, skirts, hoodies, and shirts — all from scratch. McLaughlin, a Tacoma resident, sizes

Olympia Family Theater premiered Cinder Edna five years ago, almost to the day, and now they're bringing it back with some revisions and a larger cast. A local actor not involved in either production called it a legend and wondered if it was too soon to bring it back. I

Vacationing in University Place

When talking about University Place, you may be tempted to refer to it as a quiet, waterfront neighborhood of Tacoma. You might also be tempted to call it sleepy, or maybe wave your hand dismissively when a friend asks, ‘what's there to do in UP?' because you're pretty sure there's

I wasn’t quite ready for the holiday season this year. It seems impossible that it could be time for Christmas shopping and Thanksgiving celebrations already.
