Uncovering Japantown

Photographer and community activist Gordon Swetland, along with a small team of artists, historians and preservationists, would like to offer you an opportunity to experience a rapidly-disappearing piece of Tacoma’s landscape and history. In its heyday, Tacoma’s Japantown — Nihonmachi to the people who lived there — had everything the City

Azarra Salon and Lucky Dog Outfitters

Hooked on the straight stuff… Your friend offers you something that you innocently accept.  You don’t realize the product will plunge you into a twitching need for more, more, more; the cheap substitute won’t do it for you, you need the good stuff. So it happened when Kris Blondin offered me the use

Body Evolution

I’ve passed the Body Evolution door many times, curious as to what goes on behind it. Recently, I passed through the door and found a space with great chi and many curtained doorways. Behind some of these curtains, owner Kia Carr brings a technology-meets-relaxation approach to wellness and weight loss. This

Brooke Bennett

Once upon a time “stylists” were just for hair. Now they make stars — and regular people — look their best by helping put together cohesive looks. One of our own local stylists, Brooke Bennett, is working to launch herself nationally through a contest with Teen Vogue; check out how she puts

Capri shorts

What’s the new look? Capri shorts. I have seen them come in all different styles and colors, from a dressup look like slacks that youcan wear to work for an everyday comfortable beach look. My favorite styles are the pink, baby green and blue plaid Capri shorts. They go to your knees,

The grill of your dreams

Some things (your recurring sex dreams about Al Gore) you like to keep on the “DL.”  Other things are definitely worth mentioning. Like Dave’s Meat and Produce on I Street in Tacoma.  The North End shop has been open only since last November, but business is booming.  And the Weekly

El Gaucho loves the military

Grade A prime support from steak house Downtown Tacoma’s El Gaucho restaurant now has two ways to say thank you to local military.  Since November of 2006 diners at the restaurant who are also members of the military have received a small gift along with their dinner checks — a plaque

Market fun

The Puyallup Main Street Farmers Market is bigger and better than ever. A tradition in downtown Puyallup for the past 20-plus years, the market’s vendors offer an enchanting array of unique products and excellent food. “We’re the first in the area to have cherries and fresh peas,” exclaims Janie Morris, the market’s

Puerto Vallarta’s Horny Buffalo

The Institute of Liberal Libations headed to Yelm the other night to watch the Mariners. Within seconds of our arrival at Puerto Vallarta Cantina, a young blonde woman attempted to ply us with alcohol. Obviously, as members of the Institute we don’t need any encouragement to drink. She and her

Triple Nickel auction and more

THE CONCERT Pyle of Skynyrd I have a secret.  Artimus Pyle, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s famous drummer, and his band will be in Tacoma May 31 for the firefighters’ annual oldies benefit concert. OK, it’s not really secret, but just a poorly advertised show.  Wait, Pyle has a secret.  He survived the 1977 plane crash that

Zombies and stars in Tacoma

There’s something slightly twisted about how Austen Hoogen sees things, or perhaps it’s just the twisted stuff he shares. On his MySpace page (www.myspace.com/rockzombiemovie), he shares an odd little changing table symbol found in a Green Lake Park, in addition to information about the movie that he’s hoping will put him,

Seafaring singing scum

Those dead British white guys can be so clever sometimes. Maybe they were funnier when they were actually alive, but that is a debate for another time. The dashing, dandy duo of Gilbert and Sullivan certainly knew how to turn a phrase and get a laugh through their songs and stories.

I’m going crazy on you

One of my favorite things about Tacoma is Memorial Day weekend. While everyone was busy stressing about how they were going to get out of town and battle traffic to camp in Eastern Washington, hit up the Sasquatch! Festival, rush to Portland or Vancouver, or jet set off to the airport,

Love Tacoma

There’s a specific, sweet conversation that I seem to be having over and over these days, and it never manages to bore me: I LOVE Tacoma, and apparently you do, too. I wind up with this topic week in and week out with every different kind of person imaginable. Thousands of you love

Social sniper spot

There’s one particular establishment in Proctor that I’ve visited more than all of the rest as your very own nightlife hunter and gatherer: Knapp’s. But whenever I roll into Knapp’s, it’s not to be seen or heard. Knapp’s is my social sniper spot. Whenever I want to get away from my usual

Cool Show

TAM has glitz. The new show called “Sparkle Then Fade” at Tacoma Art Museum is cool. Not necessarily great, mind you, but cool. There are some great artworks in this show, but also some that are downright stupid. It’s all about glitz, glamour, celebrity, the media — and how all of

‘Girls Gone Wild’ guy

“Show us where babies feed!” More than anything, these are the words that come to mind when I think of Doug Stanhope — the brutally opinionated, smoke-tinged comic set to play Jazzbones this Tuesday, June 5. More than his stint with Joe Rogan hosting “The Man Show” (Stanhope and Rogan replaced original
