The Art of Chocolate walk in Gig Harbor

Those who have already caved and thrown out their New Year's resolution to abstain from sweets, prepare to get giddy. Gig Harbor, the quaint gateway city of the Olympic Peninsula, hosts the third annual Art of Chocolate, Saturday, Feb. 4. As in years past, The Art of Chocolate festivities will not

WHAT'S THE WORD?: Wearing the crown

So who has the crown right now for Tacoma hip-hop? Many would say Leezy Soprano is running the show. He had a breakout year last year and this year he's keeping his buzz big with the release of his newest project, United We Ball, available for download here. The first

Review: "The Seafarer"

We often speak of a movie or play as a "rollercoaster ride," but it's easy to forget that even the best rides begin with a slow, clanky climb up a hill. In the latter Harry Potter novels, Jo Rowling seemed to relish torturing readers with hundreds of actionless pages, the

Tacoma welcomes the GLBT Book Club

Around these parts, Valentine's Day typically equals heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, red roses and inedible candies imprinted with sentiments of love that read more like text messages: HI LOVE, UR 2 NICE, etc.  In amorous Spain, Catalonia to be precise, Valentine's Day is superseded by the late-April holiday La Diada de

Review: "Hair" at Capital Playhouse

The musical Hair is much like a jam band concert: it's multi-sensual, it elicits an emotional ride, and it's probably about 15 minutes too long. That said, director Heidi Fredericks shakes every last nugget from Hair's theatrical dime bag at Capital Playhouse. If directors are reading, please take note of a

"Dawn of 2012" impresses at Fulcrum Gallery

  There's quite a range of imagery and styles in the new show at Fulcrum Gallery, Dawn of 2012. The show features emerging artists - a loosely defined and often over-used term that generally means artists who have not yet received the recognition they deserve. Some of us are emerging all

Inside the mind and business of David Scherer Water of Flat Win Co.

You know the old saying about selling snow to an Eskimo? Well, that's one way to explain the Flat Win Co., the business/art project of David Scherer Water of Olympia. Although he hasn't yet sold rain to Western Washington, Scherer Water does sell, among other things, dirt, rocks, gravel and - perhaps

Hipster's guide to love on Valentine's Day

Oh, hello. Sorry, I didn't see you over there, surreptitiously gazing at me with your weird little bedroom eyes. Something you are no doubt asking yourself is, "Who is that oddly alluring man? What is his secret? Why am I so inconceivably drawn to him?" Firstly, I commend you on your

"Side By Side By SOTA"

When Tacoma School of the Arts (SOTA) was founded in 2001, it seemed only natural that the school's many different art departments would create partnerships with local businesses of the same category. So why then did it take nearly 10 years for the theater department at SOTA

Sensational steaks at Ricardo's Restaurant in Lacey

I will always remember my first kiss. And I will always remember my first night at Ricardo's Restaurant. It was love at first sight. Because my first sight upon entering Ricardo's Restaurant in Lacey was a display case featuring the thick cut Mishima Ranch aged steaks from which my lovely wife,
