The final weekend of summer is upon us. It's the big finale, everyone gassing up their grills, putting the slip and slide out one last time and planning to throw a final gathering before you pack it all in until next year.  If you're among those hungry for one last weekend

Life de-railed

Adrian's legacy

Club Adrian is what you might call the underdog of the Tacoma underage music scene — not quite as hip as Viaduct nor as publicized as Club Impact, but none the less frequented in droves by scenesters of the local all-ages music scene. I’ve often heard rumors of its existence,

Shopping for sex day

What I blew my paycheck on this week. Lover’s Package Plain and simple, I think Valentine’s Day blows. It’s just another holiday pushed by the greeting card companies, the chocolate factories, florists and every restaurant around (does anyone really need an excuse to go out to eat?) via every media outlet known

One ringy, dingy

Red legs, blue legs

You’ve worked hard on those lean legs all year long, so why cover them up during winter? Tights and leggings are a great way to show off your stems during the frigid months, but not just any ol’ pair will do. While shamelessly Internet shopping last weekend, I came across what

Take a trip to Hawaii

Café Hawaii As I turned into the strip mall housing Café Hawaii, I caught myself muttering almost desperately, “Please let it be good.” The small café was overly bright with a television blaring; an uncomfortable combination that urged me to get a to-go order and get the hell out of there.

Home Plate Tavern

Let’s stop pretending you don’t want to know what’s inside Home Plate Tavern. You pass by it on a regular basis as you drive down South Sprague Avenue. The sign catches your eye, but you’re too scared. Is it the neighborhood? Is it that there’s nowhere to park? Is it
