Blowing the night away

The words “night” and “blow” together might evoke different things for different people. But since this is a family rag, more or less, we’ll go with the innocent, more or less, and focus on that. The Museum of Glass (yes, they dropped all that other stuff that used to be in the

Mary Powell

Coffeezaun Espresso manager Mary Powell shows off a look that incorporates financial-savvy smarts; she mixes a classic, quality item with trendy, non-spendy pieces to come up with a fun and functional outfit. The quality item of the outfit is a pair of boot-cut Earnest Sewn jeans from Dame Lola, which skim

More like skin chat

I needed an even tan line to match my bright, sun-shiny new hair color before a formal event. See, my dress was a low cut, strappy thing, while my existing tan was a field-workin’, T-wearin’ thing. Together, they were not pretty. And I had less than no time to remedy the situation,

Spank!

Spankin’ cute, no pink What to do when the boss tasks you with getting a co-scribe a baby gift? Admittedly, I offered to get said gift, since I think shopping for babies ranks up there with pleasures like “long walks on the beach” and “watching a sun set while sipping a nice

Grass roots boost

Last September there was a Florida invasion that planted some seeds. Sound nebulous enough? It gets better. Richard Florida came to Tacoma last fall, teaching his Creative Communities Leadership Project (CCLP), which seeks to give emerging leaders the tools they need to generate greater economic prosperity in their region, since cities are

UWT Graduation

(Cue chamber music group, “Pomp and Circumstance.”) Ah, commencement, when hallowed traditions of bygone times surface once again.  When silly hats are de riguer, when speeches are long and reverent, and when anything but a certain pensive sobriety is déclassé. Or not. While silly hats, long gowns, and the observation of tradition were

Rhapsody in Bloom displays art

Rhapsody in art Denise Smith, owner of A Rhapsody in Bloom Florist and Caffe Latte on Sixth Avenue for 17 years, is in a constant state of reinventing her shop. Currently, she’s morphing her combination coffee shop/florist/live music venue into a space where local artists and artisans can sell their work. But

Leave the tie on the rack

You likely remember those word-association games we all had to take in high school during those seemingly endless barrages of standardized tests. Here is a flash back of those days. Washington is to beer what California is to wine. So an event this weekend is therefore a blue-collar version of

High tea, temporary closures and more

High Tea Tea isn’t just hot water splashed on some dried leaves. It’s little Muffy in a frilly dress pouring teeny cups for teddy bears. It’s ancient Chinese doctors blending the fruits of the earth to cure flesh, and British nannies sneaking behind the shrubbery snatching a few minutes for themselves.

Whores galore

I have to say that I just couldn’t picture Tacoma Little Theatre staging “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.” It just didn’t seem like a show the theater could pull off, or since it’s a play about a brothel, pull down might be a better description. Anyway, I’ll eat crow on

\"Take ME Out\" and \"Soul On Fire\"

“Take Me Out” Olympia Little Theatre has guts. It is staging a big gamble with the rather adult play “Take Me Out,” a Pulitzer Prize-winning baseball drama about a man being true to himself — in the true coming out sort of way. This play is a favorite among gay dudes

â€"Hedwig and the Angry Inch” and more

THE FILM The Cans Film Festival “Sideways” is the next film screened as part of The Cans Film Festival, the Emergency Food Network and Food Connection’s food-theme movie festival — each film matched with a coupon to a local restaurant — to raise awareness to fight hunger. Tonight, “Sideways” will screen at

Sloppy splendor

The smug know-it-all who gleefully dismisses “modern” art with statements like “a trained monkey could do that” or “my 3-year-old child could do better” should have a field day with Ricky Burnett’s show at Black Front Gallery. Burnett’s work is raw, gritty, sloppy, and definitely looks (to the untrained eye)

The Party trifecta

As your nightlife research analyst, I completely understand that sometimes you just gotta shake things up. Even with the South Sound’s wide array of restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs, the scene has a way of wearing on an individual with the same old song and dance. Leave it to Natasha to conduct

Old School Chinese

Was it that long ago? It’s hard to admit how fast time flies and how much older I’m getting every year. It seems like only last year, my parents were rounding up my four older brothers and me into the station wagon for a “special” dinner out. We’d climb into

Wild Orchid’s Ying Yang Martini

I’m not sure whether the 30-something across from me at the Wild Orchid knew that the top half of her nipple was exposed. I certainly didn’t point it out to her, because that wouldn’t have been good for either one of us. No, I thought the thing for me to

Heaven

When it comes to a good Mexican meal, there are a hundred variations based on a mix-and-match menu system. Start with the accepted building blocks — enchiladas, tamales, guacamole salad, crispy tacos — add rice and beans, or alternately use a catchy name (the Mazatlan Platter, #2 Dinner). While the

Carmen loves Wyatt

Wyatt. He’s the one who is about to become one of the utmost important men in my life. He’s someone I already love so dearly and devotedly. Wyatt is the baby boy in the body of my best friend from high school. Beautiful Ashley and Sweet Pea Josh are expecting Wyatt to arrive
