Local ice rinks and skating activities

Here in Washington state we're able to enjoy all the seasons throughout the year, so it's no wonder Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) is one of the most requested duty stations in the U.S. Maybe you're coming from a warmer climate, like Hawaii or Arizona, or maybe you've dug yourself out

The reindeer experience

The holiday season brims with delightful iconography and cheerful symbolism that lends a wholesome warmth to winter. Though snowmen, gleeful elves, and echoing belly-laughs are mainstays during this time of year, one would be remiss to dismiss the joyous appeal of Santa's flying four-legged companions. To celebrate these furry, festive

The game’s afoot!

There are few entertainments better than a cracking good murder mystery, and no one more synonymous with the genre than Sherlock Holmes -- a character that's been deconstructed and reinterpreted in a dizzyingly large number of ways. Holmes for the Holidays (or The Game's Afoot, depending on who you ask)

Grub Gossip: New year, new you

A new year serves as a different marker for many. New Year's resolutions, an opportunity to hit that reset button on diet, exercise, bad habits, or maybe it's time to pick up a new skill or hone a craft you've otherwise neglected. Whatever the case, 2020 is a time stamp

Midsummer in December

By far one of William Shakespeare's most popular plays, A Midsummer Night's Dream -- as its name might suggest -- carries with it a loopy, humid feel, befitting its summer solstice setting. It's a bit of a treat, then, to see the Changing Scene Theatre Northwest stage this show as
