I'm too sexy for my space suit

Wondering how to beat the post-holiday blues? Have the nerve to stand out from the crowd? Then consider treating some of the Tacoma area’s upcoming afternoon and evening winter season events as excuses to play dress-up. All you need is a little imagination and a cooperative costuming consultant. I found my

King Solomon's Reef

I immediately want to compare this quaint diner to Tacoma’s very own Harvester. Add a bit more history, a cozy feel, and you have King Solomon’s Reef. One of the biggest comparisons is the hidden hole behind the dining area that houses one of Olympia’s best dive bars: The Reef. Past

Dance, musicals and chat

THE MULTI-MEDIA Dance meets animation Though Pixar is working to change things, animation in this country is still wildly undervalued. We watch our “Simpsons,” we go see “VeggieTales,” but we see animation as a source of idle entertainment rather than the vibrant art form it is. As a result, the medium remains

Marcia's Silver Spoon Café

Sometimes people consider me the ultimate Tacoma insider when it comes to nightlife, but one of the secrets to my success is simple. Sure, I’ve developed lasting relationships with so many of the wonderful restaurant and bar owners in this region because I really admire what they do, and I genuinely

Big shoes to fill

Felt good

Faith Hagenhofer is among the more inventive artists working in the South Sound region. I especially appreciate the many ways in which she takes advantage of and, in some cases, works against the natural properties of her chosen media — felt, mostly felt; woven, matted, soft and furry felt. I was
