Storytime

All the King's Women at Olympia Little Theatre is a cute, lighthearted play. The concept is inventive, and the structure is unique -- more an evening of storytelling and skits than a play. It is a series of eight short stories about the women in Elvis Presley's life, not his

A gem in the harbor

ANNOUNCER: After all the tequila and tacos last week, Dutch and Jackie needed to kickstart this weekend with the most important meal of the day, breakfast ... well, maybe brunch if you get a late start. Enter NetShed No. 9 in Gig Harbor. Their menu boasts brunch staples with a

Real deal

Susan Christian's paintings at Stable Studios are the real deal. They are painting as painting is meant to be: simple, straight-forward, unpretentious and with no trickery whatsoever. Some might see the cut-off figures, oddly elongated formats and mysterious scenes as gimmickry, but they're not; they are simply Christian being Christian

Electronic eccentricities

As the years go on, it becomes more and more common for a sighing refrain to ring out among a segment of the population: Oh my God, it's not even Halloween, and the stores are already stocked with Christmas decorations. Yes, Christmas comes earlier every year, and there seems no

From field to global force

From an argument over naming rights to a place of global importance, today's McChord Field holds a significant place in Joint Base Lewis-McChord's history. In 1927, Pierce County purchased a 771-acre piece of land for a municipal airport. John Rigney was the one to sell his land to make room for the

Jaw-dropping views

The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area makes a great vacation destination, especially when you make Stevenson, Washington, and the Skamania Lodge your base for your time in the Gorge. There are so many activities, adventures and places to eat within 10-15 minutes of the lodge that you can easily

Fall fun in the South Sound

Fall is in the air, and the crisp, sweet aroma of apples, apple cider, pumpkins, fresh donuts and apple fritters permeate the air at Lattin’s Country Cider Mill and Farm, in Olympia — one of a handful of local farms dedicated to providing harvest and Halloween

JBLM troops served vital role during OEF missions

Joint Base Lewis-McChord provided essential troops for the Operation Enduring Freedom combat duties in Afghanistan. In less than a month after the horrific Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the United States went on the offensive against al-Qaeda. In October 2001, Special Operations and air power began targeting the Taliban and al-Qaeda. These

Day trip to Vancouver, Washington

In the drive south on Interstate 5, Vancouver is often overlooked, since people visit its more famous sister city, Portland, just across the Columbia River. However, Vancouver is a vibrant city with lots to see and do, particularly if you like history. First stop is the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.

All things boo: boozy, boo-tiful, boogieing and boogeymen

Halloween is the third biggest party season of the year, nipping at the heels of New Year's Eve and Super Bowl Sunday. It's no wonder really, the only things that can compete with resolutions and tossing the ole pig skin is all things pumpkin spice and make believe. We want

A musical masquerade

Halloween is a time of putting on costumes that represent wilder, more striking versions of ourselves, so it makes sense it'd also be a time for cover bands to shine. Each year since 2003, Olympia Film Society has devoted its Capitol Theater to a late-October program of local musicians donning

Hop Roast Coffee Beer Festival

In the halcyon days of the ‘90s, The Drew Carey Show came up with a concoction called Buzz Beer. Our beloved, dumb main characters had mixed coffee and beer into something both immediately addictive and absolutely disgusting. Anyone from outside their circle would note how nasty it tasted, but still acknowledged the

"Blithe Spirit"

In their 99th season, Tacoma Little Theatre is now two for two when it comes to wry comedies featuring cosmopolitan couples dealing with extraordinary circumstances. Their first production, Rumors, was a dizzy deconstruction of, and tribute to, the genre of farce; in its whirlwind, breathless execution, it was an exuberant hit. This

"Liberal and Phenomenal" is not my assessment of the two current shows at Kittredge Gallery, University of Puget Sound. It is the name of the combined shows, each with works by five painters. "Liberal" in the main gallery features paintings by painting professors Michael Knutson (Reed College), Richard Martinez (Whitman),

Evan Main's exit

In some ways, Tacoma functions as a sort of farm league for artists looking to make it big in the world. Yes, there are frequently plenty of outlets for creatives to express themselves in town, but one can only grow so big in a city that lacks a functioning transit
