Finding center

My life is nuts. Kid, mate, work, play life, work, social life, kid, work, extended family drama, kid, add a dash of mate, put all ingredients in a blender, and purée. I’ll own up to the fact that my job rocks, and is often fun, but while many of those around me

The Hair Lounge will Show & Tell

Big Vac and Ixia Tile

Home, clean home I guess I’ve rediscovered my inner domestic goddess, or I’ve just got past my dust denial, and I have to admit it’s made me a bit nuts. Maybe it has something to do with the Tacoma Health Department’s “Dirt Alert” campaign and the thought that little particles of

One3One look

For the past two weeks I’ve been checking out the styles at club One3One, located in the shadow of the Space Needle in Seattle. With no clue what to wear on my first visit, I donned stilettos because that’s what all the girls danced in. By the end of the

Desiree Flerchinger

Desiree Flerchinger flashes a Miami-ready look as she wanders through Art on the Ave. Where’d it come from? “ROSS, baby!” — she later amended her announcement, “Well, ROSS, Costco, and the Bon.” That accounts for the skirt, shirt and shoes, while her undershirt was a hand-me-down from her mom. The sunglasses, too, came

Harmon Brewery’s Hagrid’s Hog Head Ale

We’ve all had those days when we just really want — and borderline physically need — a beer. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s been a bad day — although the beer-wanting feeling is very common after a day when your fellow students and/or Hogwarts Headmasters make you want to

Let me give YOU advice

I have decided to dabble with a subject near to my heart: the unusual number of people who feel free to offer unsolicited advice to restaurant owners. For some weird reason, other trades don’t seem to get the well-meaning, know-it-alls we do. Think about it. Have you ever walked up

Sixth Avenue is poppin’

This week I’m going to draw your attention away from just one establishment so you can have a look-see at the bigger picture. There’s a new Scene of the Crime that’s been emerging ever since I became a loyal Tacoma socialite, and it’s now requiring me to switch gears because this

She goes by the name “Tree” and her story unfolds on the Enlighten Me Free site (www.enlightenmefree.com), arguably the first to publicly criticize the Royal School of Enlightenment. It’s apparent that she is a strong, independent-minded, intelligent woman who has gone through some brutally trying times. She was drawn to Yelm
