The girlie show

The latest show at A.O.C. Gallery is called “Divergent Metaphors.” I’m tempted to call it “The Girlie Show.” But that would be sexist. It is a show of fiber art by four recent graduates of the University of Washington: Julia Waldeck, Robin Sterling Brewer, Liz Frey, and Deborah Gregory. Overall, this

Stanley & Seafort’s and me

Oftentimes when looking for fun, you don’t have to go much farther than your own backyard. Lucky for me, my backyard-style good times include living within walking distance of one helluva place: Stanley & Seafort\'s. This restaurant means more to me than I’ve ever explained to anyone until right now. I was

Christmas in July

Chestnuts roasting outdoors in the sun, Jack Frost nipping at the brew; Yuletide carols being slurred by the crowd, And folks dressed up like J. Crew. We read in Mel Torme’s autobiography how Mel and a buddy banged out “The Christmas Song” in 45 minutes one sweltering July afternoon. You have to admire that.

On March 5, 2007, in the bloody midpoint of the Iraq War, a car bomb exploded on al-Mutanabbi Street in Baghdad, ripping through booksellers, cafes, and tea shops - including the Shahbandar coffeehouse, a meeting place for generations of Iraqi writers and intellectuals - killing 30 people and wounding more

"I'm on a boat!" Any bets if that's an artwork title at the 11th Annual Open Juried Art Show at the Harbor History Museum, which opens Friday, Aug. 30? The museum nestles the water in downtown Gig Harbor. You can't walk the length of a plank without stumbling into a

Saturday, Aug. 31-Sunday, Sept. 1: "Chicago"

From the Lindbergs to O.J. Simpson, America loves a high-profile murder trial. And why not? What could be more theatrical than a gruesome case presented by suave attorneys with celebrity witnesses? Such a trial is satirized in the steamy award-winning musical Chicago, which kicks off its national tour Saturday in

Third Thursday auto pilot

Visualize a city. Maybe a warehouse district turns into loft-style living spaces. Maybe a former house of ill-repute turns into a restaurant, and maybe a former auto dealership turns into a bookshop. Maybe? Look around Tacoma. King’s Books was, in fact, an auto dealership in 1909, but that particular product — the

Is Harry heading down the wrong path?

Whatever happened to the delight and, if you’ll excuse the term, magic in the Harry Potter series?  As the characters grow up, the stories grow, too, leaving the innocence behind and confusing us with plots so labyrinthine that it takes a Ph.D. from Hogwarts to figure them out.  “Harry Potter

Cheadle is unbelievable

Captivity is gruesome

Captivity Elisha Cuthbert, so annoying as Jack’s bratty daughter in “24,” less irritating and less clothed in “The Girl Next Door,” stars this time as a famous model who is drugged, captured and tortured by a sick mind. Rated R for strong violence, torture, pervasive terror, grisly images, language and some
