Eating on canvas

A locally celebrated chef told me recently that cooking had more to do with craftsmanship than art. “Saying it is art sounds hoity-toity to me,” says this chef. “Cooking is a teachable skill — you can teach anyone the basics of cooking like you can teach them woodworking.”

My posse's on Pacific

Last Thursday while some were out “Loving Tacoma” at Cans, the boys and I were spreading our love around at a few other downtown haunts and eateries. Love Tacoma did sound enticing, but we were in the mood for variety, and variety is exactly what we received. We started

Marcia's Silver Spoon Cafe

Sometimes people consider me the ultimate Tacoma insider when it comes to nightlife, but one of the secrets to my success is simple. Sure, I’ve developed lasting relationships with so many of the wonderful restaurant and bar owners in this region because I really admire what they do, and

The Freakouts

Rock and roll is a youthful expression. It’s how the music was created and what it was meant to be. Rock and roll is about rebellion and energy and letting loose — all things you do better young. No matter how many more tours the Rolling Stones sellout, the facts

Satellite Coffee

Back in the day of high school and learner’s permits, a group of us from Gig Harbor used to drive across the then one Narrows Bridge to get our after school coffee fix at Temple of the Bean across from Wright Park. It wasn’t so much about the coffee as

Good barbecue

Good barbecue — like some other good things in life — can’t be hurried. It’s a sloooooow process. We’re not talking about grilling, or backyard barbecues. We’re talking about the art of cooking meats and poultry over low, slow heat. The following know what they’re doing: HONEY BEE

Peelander-Z lands in T-town

Like most of the insight Bobble Tiki has collected over the course of his life, Bobble Tiki’s knowledge of Japan comes mainly from cartoons.

Good for the soul

ANNOUNCER: Remember the amazing soul food in the back room at Lincoln Bowl Lanes? The folks who served those heaping dishes of Southern comfort have moved out on their own. Thurmond Brokenbrough and his wife, Linda, ran Uncle Thurms Soul Food inside Lincoln Bowl before moving a year and a

Odd creation

I guess it’s only natural that the Paramount would want to stage a pre-Broadway show since its crosstown rival, Fifth Avenue, did so well with the show “Hairspray” a few years back. In fact, “Hairspray” not only went on to the Great White Way, receiving a few statues along the

A Love Letter to Tacoma

The two self-titled guerrilla artists behind the thought-provoking posters spotted around Tacoma aren’t what you might expect.  Describing himself and his partner in the “slightly illegal” undertaking that is Beautiful Angle, Tom Llewellyn says, “We’re not twenty-something taggers; we’re forty-year-old fathers.” And their families are involved in

Three divas in the house

When three tenors get together, there’s a butt-slapping bravado going on that smells an awful lot like a men’s locker room full of sweat and testosterone. Get together three divas, individually incomparable singers of great accomplishment, and you’d probably have something like rapier-sharpened nails and French perfume. Put
