The Weekly Volcano’s work is never done (or appreciated). Not only do we painstakingly plan out your evening itinerary, lazybones, but we’re also required to unearth activities that appeal to all personality types. Today, our little spotlight dance focuses on two categories of people: saints and cheapskates. Saints, because you’re nice

Young and happening

Something that I admire more than anything is young entrepreneurial hipsters who are working their business, making a big difference here in this T to the Town. I try to frequent their places as much as possible because I have so much respect for the fact that they’ve thrown themselves in

ESITU

Rock should be played without frills. Screw the fancy effects and give me guitar, bass, drums and a Marshall stack and call it good. Playing a brand of metal that is reminiscent of Priest, Maiden and Sabbath, ESITU drink their whiskey straight without a chaser. But the Seattle-based quartet is

Summer is skin deep

Once upon a time the skin on my face was as smooth as a baby’s bottom. But then came adolescence and the visiting occasional zit that required a strict regimen of popping, alcohol and hand soap. As soon as the sun came out, it was time to head outside, slathering on

The new and improved Square

T acoma is an adjective synonymous with “tough-chic élan,” “quirky” and “groovy, baby.” Use: “That art festival was so Tacoma!” or “That hipster who walked into the Blackwater just screamed Tacoma!” or “The Tempest and the Monsoon Room are so Tacoma.” And the embodiment of the adjective, aside from the aforementioned? Freighthouse Square. No,
