Happy New Year to all! Of course I am assuming it will be. I’m writing this on New Year’s Eve while out of town and probably the only person in Tacoma not going to First Night. Large groups of non-drinking people scare me, so I avoid them by hiding in

I love Bento

I was trying to get to I Love Bento, because it was a rainy, cold night that required a fast infusion of green tea, warm miso soup and some raw fish. Maybe some sake, too. And definitely a hit of wasabi. Since I firmly believe that a good winter funk

Captain Nemo's

You’ve driven by so many times that the large building has ceased to exist. You know it’s there, but it no longer registers. A large neon sign reads “Spaghetti Dinner” or “Prime Rib Special.” The parking lot is mysteriously and consistently half full or better. Captain Nemo’s in University Place

Garrison Keillor, quilts and more

THE RV Bigger is better There’s nothing more American than a recreational vehicle. Here’s a car that’s literally as big as a house, equipped to the nines with every sort of modern amenity you can think of, a brazen gas-guzzler ready to tear giant swaths of land apart, highway by scenic highway.

The Shackeltons

With a dual guitar assault, rambunctious rhythms, and fever pitched vocals, the Shackeltons take the punk attitude of the Clash and combine it with shades of garage, grunge, and hard-core for a sound which is familiar and fresh at the same time.
