Quintessential Olympia breakfast

Seattle has Matt's in the Market. San Francisco has the Fog City Diner, New Orleans has Commander's Palace, New York has the Carnegie Deli, Chicago has Geno's, and Philadelphia has Pat's. Every city has a restaurant that reflects the people, the culture, the reality of the place - not the

Sasquatch! 2010: Day Three

An aura of calm swept over the Gorge Monday morning - at least in the early hours - as lines to get in on the final day of Sasquatch! slowly grew outside the gates, and the hardcore types, most of whom had slept in the dirt for the past two

Proctor District Safeway

Very few experiences make me appreciate where I live. I've traveled a bit, but not much around this country. I have discovered that Tacomans are not that different from anyone else, until last week when I traveled to the East Coast for my nephew's college graduation. I couldn't find a decent

Suite nostalgia

Suite nostalgia

Neil Simon's Plaza Suite debuted in 1968, four months before I was born, so it was probably inevitable that I found myself contemplating the passage of time as I watched Olympia Little Theatre's revival.  In three acts, each of which take place in Suite 719 of the Plaza Hotel in

Old stomping grounder

Roughly 15 years later, and millions of records removed (almost all of them sold in the late ‘90s - an era that feels like eons ago), John Wozniak is headed back to Olympia. And he's bringing the band that took him away in the first place, Marcy Playground, with him. If you

Fanaticism, food and booze

Our little Northwest piece of the world will take part in global fanaticism beginning June 11 when team captains shake hands for the first match of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. In the Tacoma area, Doyle's Public House is pretty much synonymous with soccer.  Doyle's patrons are quite familiar with St.

Goth's game plan

Have I ever met someone of the goth persuasion? Sure. Could I pick a goth kid out of a lineup? Probably. Do I know what a goth actually is? No fucking clue. Goth is one of these frustratingly murky terms that worms its way into the zeitgeist, but after years of existing

NON-STOP HIP-HOP: Serving a need

Pioneer is a not a title to be used lightly and tossed about like a Nerf ball, but those who earn the distinction should be recognized and respected for their accolades.  Steve "O" Brown is one such pioneer. Specifically, Brown has been a major player in the Northwest music industry,

Neddy time

It's Neddy time again. Every year I look forward to the Neddy show at Tacoma Art Museum, and every year I'm just a little bit disappointed. But along with the disappointment comes exhilaration because year after year the Neddy nominees seem to be split between some of the best artists
