My 4 Sons BBQ

ANNOUNCER: Having hit the one-year open mark, Dutch and Jackie head just out of town to Midland to see what My 4 Sons BBQ is serving. With a menu that's written daily on butcher paper and posted at the door, they could be in for quite an adventure. DUTCH: Let me just get this out

The sprawling Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum packs quite a bit on its large campus that dominates the landscape. The two museum buildings are architectural gems with walls of soaring glass. In addition, there is a movie theater and the Wings and Waves Waterpark with a real Boeing 747 aircraft

The Canterbury sound

Over the past few weeks, in preparation for a move, I've been shuffling through my record collection to decide what'll be coming with me. The vast majority of this collection came from my dad, who left them with me when he left the country. I've still not had the chance

Epic play comes to Lakewood Playhouse

Winner of two Pulitzer Prizes and three Tony Awards for Best Play, Tony Kushner's Angels in America, now playing in repertory at Lakewood Playhouse, is a momentous and epic play, and very likely the best drama of the late 20th century. At seven-and-a-half hours in length, it is also a daunting

There are so many things that go into putting together a good show: the quality of the bands, the nature of the venue, the steps taken in ensuring that folks will even show up to the show, and a million more moving parts. If there is one element of a

Best of Olympia 2019: Elizabeth Lord

It's not Elizabeth Lord's first time receiving accolades from Weekly Volcano readers, having won the title of Best Actress multiple times. This does mark the first instance, though, where she's also laying claim to Arts Scene MVP. It only makes sense, really, to consider Lord a valuable player -- since

Define, best. Because here's the thing, sometimes the best thing, a true winner in my book, is something that is exceptional. Exceptional could be applied in so many facets of life: unusual, extraordinary, unprecedented -- you could say memorable even. And let's face it, Old School Pizzeria lures you back

Keith Eisner's a man of many talents. He and his wife, Debe Edden, are in Olympia Family Theater's upcoming production of The Hundred Dresses. Word's getting out, though: He's also one of Olympia's pre-eminent writers. He teaches writing classes at the Olympia Senior Center, but it was his own work

On a recent weekday, the lunch crowd at Olympia's Well 80 Brewery and Brewpub covered all the demographics the year-old establishment aims to serve. Upon entering the bright, open space with exposed beams high above, a large, all-ages area occupies the right half of the room. There, at large, low tables

Best of Olympia 2019: Wagner's European Bakery & Cafe

My favorite thing about Olympia is the cinnamon bread at Wagner's European Bakery & Café. It's their signature bakery item and you can see why. Unlike most cinnamon bread which is thickly rolled with just a thin swirl of cinnamon, Wagner's version is thinly rolled creating a swirl that is

It's a tie. And rightfully so, because the theaters our readers chose as best in Olympia are two very different theaters that appeal to different audiences (with significant overlap), and they are each excellent in what they do -- easily equal in quality of production to the very best in

Best of Olympia 2019: Rainy Day Records

There are few better ways to while away an afternoon than by taking a stroll through a good record store, discovering new music and talking shop with vinyl aficionados. Thankfully, this pastime has made a roaring comeback in the past few years with the popularity of records somewhat counterintuitively skyrocketing,
