Indochine’s Thai Kiss

Certain tastes and smells take me back to a specific time in my life, sometimes even when I don't want to go there. I dropped by Indochine — downtown Tacoma’s trip to exotic Asia with a lounge whose masterful design creates a sophisticated space with colorful changing lights, sleek lines

Recipe for Tacoma sex-cess

There’s no need to spike your chicken soup with a tab of ecstasy; sexy gateway foods are plentiful. Some are simply more inviting than others. The following five-course meal could theoretically keep you up all night. Open a bottle of champagne and have a glass. Slice a large tomato and

Love shorts

It seems only proper that I would be writing about love and relationships on the weekend of my ninth anniversary to the little woman. Only married people would understand when I say that it feels like we have been married forever and just a day all at the same time.

Anyone who’s ever caught wicked air knows that if your wheels are turning but you can’t get off the ground what you really need is a ramp. For the last three years, Tacoma artists have learned to fly using a particularly steep ramp known as RampArt. Tracing backward the paths

Hula dancing through the week

A white dress, a lacy veil, something old, new, borrowed and blue. Me? I’ve never been interested in any of that kind of crap. As a youngin’, when most other girls were envisioning their princess day and the perfect wedding, I was busy playing competitive sports. I wasn’t forming opinions on whether to

Treat me right on Valentine's Day

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I know for a fact that Tina Turner said it best: “What’s love got to do with it?” For some reason, I’ve been jinxed on this holiday every year of my life. Each of the boyfriends I’ve had refused to celebrate it, so I’ve never actually

Tunes and Improve

Comedy hasn't evolved much since the glory days of ventriloquist and puppet. Every so often, there's a Gallagher smashing watermelons or a musical funnyman like Jack Black, but for the most part, comedy is a dude on a stage with a microphone, plodding through a joke-punch line-new joke routine. Boring! Well,

They heart Frida Kahlo

You’ve got to love Frida Kahlo — if not for her art, then for her outrageous sense of style and her superhuman courage. “Frida Kahlo: Images of an Icon” at the Tacoma Art Museum is not so much about Kahlo the artist as it is about Kahlo the woman. There are

The Big Cheese

Super Bowl in a theater

“People in Puyallup tend to think of the Liberty as their theater,” says Tom Nuemann, owner of Liberty Theater in Puyallup. “So we try to have a wide array of events to appeal to different types of people.” To that end, two very different events, both elaborately carried out in their

Dar Williams

While many singer/songwriters suffer from stage fright, I think anyone's confidence level would rise if Joan Baez decided to sing and record some of that musician's songs. That's what happened to Dar (short for Dorothy) Williams early in her career after she got a gig as opening act for Baez.

This one’s a keeper

As I sat watching the opening scenes of Susannah Grant’s “Catch and Release,” I flashed back to a personal experience from several years ago.  Like the characters portrayed in this film, I, too, had been friends with a dynamic young man who was tragically killed shortly before his wedding.  His
