Jess comes clean

There are certain delicate things you don’t really mention in public, unless you’re me and you mention them just so someone else doesn’t notice first and embarrass the hell out of you — it’s sort of a way of shrugging and apologizing and getting it over with. And so I point

Tight cuts makes hair hot

There’s a buzz in the air, and it’s not about libations. This buzz is Tight Cuts, opening Friday at the Sixth and Pearl location (they have Everett and Kirkland locations open already, and a Puyallup location opening soon.) The concept is all about men’s haircuts — though they cut women, too —

Bethany Vieth

Bethany Vieth stops to show off her softly-toile goodness in between snapping shots of the Love Tacoma beautiful people last Thursday on the Hispter Boutique Tour. By day, she’s the mild-mannered business development manager for Parkland Chevrolet, but as the work day ends, she’s at home loving Tacoma. Her dress is from

I’m 93!

Recently I won tickets to Summer Jam off of Kube 93 because I was the 93rd caller. At first I couldn’t believe I won. I never win anything. So many things were running through my mind. Who was I going to take? How many people were going to be there?

Counter intelligence?

George Washington had focus. Martin Luther King Jr. had vision. John Lennon could imagine. Bilbo Baggins knew what he wanted and grasped for that gold ring. None of them had the drive to achieve their goals the way Kevin Cross is focused on reaching the task at hand. He is stepping

I don’t like spiders and groups

We all have phobias. Some are serious and some are not. For example, many people have an intense fear of heights or confined spaces. Some are silly, like mine. I hate spiders and sit-down dining with a large group of people. Little did I know that I would own a

Goldfish Tavern’s Blue Moon

When looking for a biker-type bar, you mainly need to decide what serves your needs. Do you desire a drinking establishment with burly Harley guys fresh off the road hanging with their big, sweaty mamas, all cranked up on Jack Daniel’s and PCP? Or do you desire a place with

Stupid mother schuckers

For all of you out there who are trying to figure out how to get to the center of my heart, I’ll give you one way to do so in the summertime. Just give me corn on the cob. Corn, yellow as my hair, is such a quintessential requirement for getting me

Gig Harbor dreamin’

William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is likely one of the most adaptable of all of his works since it is set in a dream world from the start. Since dreams can involve everything so too can a play based on that dream world. That means the play could involve donkeys

The girlie show

The latest show at A.O.C. Gallery is called “Divergent Metaphors.” I’m tempted to call it “The Girlie Show.” But that would be sexist. It is a show of fiber art by four recent graduates of the University of Washington: Julia Waldeck, Robin Sterling Brewer, Liz Frey, and Deborah Gregory. Overall, this

Stanley & Seafort’s and me

Oftentimes when looking for fun, you don’t have to go much farther than your own backyard. Lucky for me, my backyard-style good times include living within walking distance of one helluva place: Stanley & Seafort\'s. This restaurant means more to me than I’ve ever explained to anyone until right now. I was

Kulture Lab gets crabby

You thought the Dead Artists were dead, didn’t you? They had you going with their “Death and Burial” spring show at Kulture Lab, making you think it was the end. Well it wasn’t, and a huge Kulture Lab-like party set for Saturday, July 21, starting at 6 p.m. and going all night

Christmas in July

Chestnuts roasting outdoors in the sun, Jack Frost nipping at the brew; Yuletide carols being slurred by the crowd, And folks dressed up like J. Crew. We read in Mel Torme’s autobiography how Mel and a buddy banged out “The Christmas Song” in 45 minutes one sweltering July afternoon. You have to admire that.

Third Thursday auto pilot

Visualize a city. Maybe a warehouse district turns into loft-style living spaces. Maybe a former house of ill-repute turns into a restaurant, and maybe a former auto dealership turns into a bookshop. Maybe? Look around Tacoma. King’s Books was, in fact, an auto dealership in 1909, but that particular product — the

Is Harry heading down the wrong path?

Whatever happened to the delight and, if you’ll excuse the term, magic in the Harry Potter series?  As the characters grow up, the stories grow, too, leaving the innocence behind and confusing us with plots so labyrinthine that it takes a Ph.D. from Hogwarts to figure them out.  “Harry Potter

Cheadle is unbelievable

The story of Petey Greene was a movie waiting to be made.  Greene came out of prison to become, literally overnight, a popular and influential DJ.  He was on WOL, a Washington, D.C., station that was looking for a morning man to connect with its African-American audience and got more

Captivity is gruesome

Captivity Elisha Cuthbert, so annoying as Jack’s bratty daughter in “24,” less irritating and less clothed in “The Girl Next Door,” stars this time as a famous model who is drugged, captured and tortured by a sick mind. Rated R for strong violence, torture, pervasive terror, grisly images, language and some
