Basilico Ristorante Italiano

ANNOUNCER: Basilico in Olympia is a local favorite for authentic Italian cuisine. The menu often offers seasonal Northwest ingredients with an Italian flair. With rumors of the husband and wife owners Giampaolo Falchetti and Kathryn Philbrook opening a similar place in Tacoma's Proctor district, Dutch and Jackie head south for

Midsummer in December

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

The South Sound greets the new year

It might be startling to realize this, but there's no particular reason to begin a new year on the first day of January. It's a week and a half past winter solstice, the shifting date on which the ancient Greeks rebooted their communal calendar, and nowhere near ancient Mesopotamians' preferred

I've never been much of a holiday person. Don't get me wrong, I'm no Grinch, but you better not ask me where my Christmas tree is on Thanksgiving, and sure as heck don't ask me to go shopping right after dinner! But that aside, I am a lover of twinkling

Welcome to another edition of Three Easy Pieces, where I explore a certain subsection of pop culture, from its birth to how it looks today. Since the holiday season is upon us -- bringing with it yet another remake of Black Christmas -- I thought I'd revisit a topic I

Reunited and it feels so good

Let us now sing once again (or should we say "carol?") the praises of The Christmas Revels at Tacoma Arts Live's Rialto Theater. It's a mid-December medley of family-friendly skits, songs and instrumental performances that showcase a different, though primarily European, culture each year. As it has been for the

The never-ending war

The never-ending war

An Iliad by Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare, not to be confused with The Iliad by Homer, is a one-person, one-act play, and it is as powerful and as intense as anything you're likely to see this year. Peterson and O'Hare's An Iliad will be performed two nights only in

The Alleycat Patio and Lounge

ANNOUNCER: Jackie and Dutch caught wind of a new hot spot on the Ave and had to see what it was all about. Something about a patio, we all know a good one around these parts is hard to come by if you're not on the waterfront. DUTCH: I really liked

While in the grocery store the other day, Michael Buble crooned over the speakers reminding me that the holiday season is officially in full swing. I mean, I know this, but there was a thick veil of doubt shrouding my vision. I have since accepted my reality check and I

Getting into the holiday spirit

Now that the season has finally begun, with the temperature dropping, the rain (and potentially snow) clouds rolling in, leaves on the ground and an earlier-than-preferred sunset; it's time for the holiday activities to commence! One of my personal favorite activities to get in the holiday mindset is ice skating with

Creature comforts

The autumn and winter seasons are made for eating. It's the law of nature. Biology courses were never my strong suit but I think it's a thing ... right? As the days get shorter, we are trapped in a perpetual darkness, chilled to the bone, and craving for something to
