Spa that Ruth built

Walk into what used to be Avanti Spas from the Pacific Ave entrance and you may do a double take like I did last week when I popped in to meet with Ruth Michelle to get the full scoop on all the changes that took place when Avanti spas became

Posh Home, Big Vac and more

Me and my posh, clean castle Why, yes, I do have miles to go before my space hits “Posh” status, but if you close your eyes and take a deep breath in — yeah, even downstairs where pups, crates and Flash the Gerbil live — you can breathe in Posh. Actually,

A tight cut

That highly anticipated day happened — when the choir of angels sang and the significant one got to have his hair cut by a hot chick in leather at Tight Cuts the day they opened their Tacoma location. Having me hanging around, camera in hand, asking questions, did much to kill

Festival for everyone

“When you see a Russian family dancing along with Polynesian dancers or an Asian family swinging to reggae, only then do you get a real flavor for what Ethnic Fest was designed to do,” says Metro Parks spokeswoman Nancy Johnson. The multicultural festival takes place in Wright Park this Saturday and

Suzanne Conlon

Suzanne Conlon sneaks a bite of shrimp in her snappy little outfit that combines fun with formal at Zoobilee held last Saturday at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. Setting off the formal portion of her look is an up-do by Yonga at Angelo Mendi Salon (where Conlon also works.) This is

Me and Mr. Bones

My friend and I had our navels pierced for my 17th birthday at Dagon’s Lair in Lakewood. I was absolutely petrified to get it pierced — I hate needles. I sat nervously waiting for my name to called. Finally a young man with tattoos and piercing all over his body,

Zoobilee turns into BYOB (Bring your own ‘brella)

July 20 brought a night of rain after a week of rain, which meant Zoobilee revelers were either covered up by their umbrellas or wet. But a few savvy attendees buffed up their best boots and brought their sense of humor to the event, which featured plenty of heat from fire

Quickie Too for your vegan fix

Best kept secret This place has such great eats, and it’s Tacoma’s only vegan restaurant. Quickie Too is my hangover cure and you really won’t miss a meat. I’m afraid that once people figure it out it might not be the same, but it’s against my lack of religion to keep

Lakewood market an icon

The sweet aroma of conchas (a traditional Mexican sweet bread) is a welcoming distraction while shopping for groceries at El Mercado Latino in Lakewood. More than likely one of these treats is prepared by Roberto the in house baker — baked goods that rarely make it home in one piece

Red Robin’s Absolut Lemonade

At the lemonade stand in front of your garage, you eagerly awaited customers and watched beads of condensation slide down the pitcher. Neighbors, pitying your callow cuteness, said, “Keep the change.” For every glass sold, you downed three. Business might’ve boomed if you’d had the recipe for Red Robin’s vodka

Servers are people too

Recently circumstances forced me to step in and cover one of my server’s shifts. I like to serve. The money can be really good. However, my skills are a little rusty, and while the job of a restaurant server is not the most challenging job out there, it does take

Brighter lights

I have written a lot over the years about how staging good shows is only a fraction of what goes into the operation of a theatrical venue. Some would argue it probably isn’t even the most important. I know of at least a handful of theaters that have staged strong

Outdoor movies, Shark Week and more

THE BOOKS Page Ahead I could make jokes about how you never read anymore. But that’s just not true. You do. TV Guide doesn’t read itself, you know. Plus you have to figure out that little graph thingy with the channels and times — not to mention the plot summaries. However, I
