In some ways, Tacoma functions as a sort of farm league for artists looking to make it big in the world. Yes, there are frequently plenty of outlets for creatives to express themselves in town, but one can only grow so big in a city that lacks a functioning transit

"Liberal and Phenomenal" is not my assessment of the two current shows at Kittredge Gallery, University of Puget Sound. It is the name of the combined shows, each with works by five painters. "Liberal" in the main gallery features paintings by painting professors Michael Knutson (Reed College), Richard Martinez (Whitman),

"Blithe Spirit"

In their 99th season, Tacoma Little Theatre is now two for two when it comes to wry comedies featuring cosmopolitan couples dealing with extraordinary circumstances.

Hop Roast Coffee Beer Festival

In the halcyon days of the ‘90s, The Drew Carey Show came up with a concoction called Buzz Beer. Our beloved, dumb main characters had mixed coffee and beer into something both immediately addictive and absolutely disgusting.

A musical masquerade

Halloween is a time of putting on costumes that represent wilder, more striking versions of ourselves, so it makes sense it'd also be a time for cover bands to shine. Each year since 2003, Olympia Film Society has devoted its Capitol Theater to a late-October program of local musicians donning

All things boo: boozy, boo-tiful, boogieing and boogeymen

Halloween is the third biggest party season of the year, nipping at the heels of New Year's Eve and Super Bowl Sunday. It's no wonder really, the only things that can compete with resolutions and tossing the ole pig skin is all things pumpkin spice and make believe. We want

Buying the farm

A home loan from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is one of the best-kept secrets in the home buying market. Often referred to as the USDA Rural Development Loan, it is a zero-down, 100-percent financing home loan designed to promote home ownership in less-dense communities across the nation. "Buying rural

Achieve the dream

Most folks know that, since 1944, Veteran's Administration Home Loans have been helping veterans achieve the dream of home ownership.
