Lennon magic in Olympia

Magic was captured in Olympia Tuesday in the notes to a song that a Steinway & Sons upright piano drew out of John Lennon, a haunting call to peace and love made more poignant after Lennon’s assassination.  Lennon bought the Model Z piano in London in 1970 and composed and recorded

Carmen’s party continues

It’s so nice when you return from a festive Hawaiian island vacation and the party only continues. As soon as Natasha and I grabbed our bags at the airport, Darling Damon and Little Leah picked us up and rolled us directly into Doyle’s Public House. Familiar haunts are fun when you’ve

Beer buds boast Bob

Few beer events are more heart warming and exclusive than the annual tapping of Bob’s Brown Ale from Georgetown Brewing Company.

Porter\'s Place

My last visit to New Orleans was at once exhilarating and disappointing. Exhilarating because I was lucky enough to experience exquisite meals at Bayona, Mike’s on the Avenue and the G&E Courtyard Grill. But disappointing because, while dining out at these innovative upscale restaurants, I was missing out on the

Vertigo Lounge’s Mojito

Heaven on the 26th floor? I can only imagine what it’s like to work in a hotel bar. On a good day, you’re dealing with some heavy hitter with a sizable expense account who, after being over-served, might overtip with the company credit card. But on most days, you’re serving

72-Hour Film Competition, Knowledge Night and more

THE FILM 72-Hour Film Competition You know how sometimes you watch a particularly crappy movie and you think to yourself, “Even I could make a better film than that!”? Apparently, the people at Tacoma’s Grand Cinema agree with you, and that is why they gave folks with a video camera and $50

Charlie LaBenz passes

Your Natasha is very rarely a downer, but this week I have to address a scene-of-the-crime issue that has thoroughly affected my entire person. While on my most recent vacation in Hawaii, I was given terrible, awful news. My friend from high school, Charlie LaBenz, died in a car accident on Guemes
