It’s the sun!

Spring weather in Tacoma means blue skies and warmth one day and rain the next.  Or, as on Tuesday morning, a combination of the two within minutes. In a brief moment between drizzle and hail, a brave group of individuals hit Ruston Way, with wheels, leashes, and hoods, to try their

A Cook’s Tour through Tacoma

To be brutally honest, Bobble Tiki was happy back in the days when he knew the names of the restaurants, not the chefs. There’s no shame in a hard-working hash slinger staying at the stove and off the Food Network. But instead of humble cooks, Bobble Tiki is confronted with

I love me a Quickie

As your personal Tacoma cruise director, in a non-Julie McCoy sort of way, I’m required to draw your attention to the best lunch spot in this city because after a full night of partying, a girl’s gotta eat. However, the place that I’m about to bring you to is so cool

The Vanity Show

Ah, The Vanity Show. What chutzpah! Art on Center owners C.J. Swanson and David N. Goldberg are showing their own paintings to mark the gallery’s second anniversary. This exhibition is an update on Art on Center’s premiere show two years ago, which is especially appropriate since this is slated to

Green Day

There are many different viewpoints when it comes to global warming. There are those who think that it is out of our hands and nothing can be done about it. There are people who think it’s all a bunch of hooey and it will never happen. There are those who

‘Whose Picture is it, anyway?’

April Fool’s Day brought some familiar faces onstage at the Pantages Theatre. Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood brought their hilariously brainy antics to Tacoma, where a packed house raised the volume level up with their laughter and shouted murder-weapon suggestions. Surreal, that.

DJs and freaks

Since Oct 27, 2003, Seattle-based body art theatre P.U.R.E., or People Undergoing Real Experiences, has trashed the three rings, and traded them in for nipple rings, grinder suits and flaming numchucks (forgive me, Japanese masters, for Americanizing the name of your glorious weapon).  For two years, the group performed only

French Tacoma

Passion is a mainstay in both French film and French cuisine, as are tradition and technique. Can a country that elevates food, wine and film to the highest levels of art attainable be bad? I think not. The five films that the Tournées Festival, coming to The Grand Cinema courtesy of Pierce

Spring fashion heats up

All eyes were focused on the center of the hot shop at the Museum of Glass last week, though the action wasn’t the typical glass-blowing creation of art.  Instead, the evening centered on the Nordstrom Hot Shop Runway spring fashion show, presented jointly by the Tacoma Art Museum and the

It’s Italian for ‘quaint’

ANNOUNCER: The boys have made the Brotherhood Tavern their satellite office ever since they were old enough to pay their own tab (though they seldom do). The shuffleboard, the funky lights, the velvet U.S. presidents, the hipsters — heaven. But when they have had their fill of cash-only booze, they

Winfield's opens

Get Twisted Winfield’s Twisted Cue Club has opened at 539 Broadway in the mansion that was formerly David’s on Broadway. The proprietors have renovated this antique space and, something that’s important to me, a 1,100 square foot deck. I might have to make reservations now for the 4th of July fireworks

Barb’s Westgate Inn’s Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Booze and music — is there any greater combination in this world? The link between the two even exceeds the grandeur of the marriage of booze and sport. The more randy-minded readers will admit the frequency with which all three parties join forces to ensure extravagant levels of fun, the

Upper Crust

They like it deep in Chicago, and New Yorkers swear they do it best. What about Tacomans? We do it gourmet, dahling! Thin-crusted and loaded with toppings, upscale pizza is thriving — low-fat diets be damned. Posh pizzerias have captured the genre, replacing fraternity crowds with fashionable foodies. Take-out chow

Are We Done Yet? opens

Are We Done Yet? In this sequel to “Are We There Yet?” (2005), the once mismatched Nick (Ice Cube) and Suzanne (Nia Long) are now married and moving to a fixer-upper in the country with Suzanne’s two children (cruel hellions in the first film) and twins on the way.  What could

Skip ‘The Reaping’

Hilary Swank is faced with a problem.  A great problem, but still a problem: after two Best Actress Oscar wins, what direction will her career take?  She has a responsibility to the Academy, after all.  She alerted us that she can play the femme fatale in “The Black Dahlia,” and

Pure popcorn fun

Rose McGowan is Cherry Darling, a former go-go dancer and wannabe stand-up comic who sports a machine gun where once she had a leg.  Kurt Russell is Stuntman Mike, a smiling, muscle car-driving speed-demon who has a hideous scar creasing his face and a propensity for imitating John Wayne and
