I scoured the inter webs for my favorite smorgasbord of foodie theme festivities. I'm delighted to say there's an excess of furry and feathered friends and beer. If either are your bag, then you're in luck. This weekend, Harmon Brewing is kicking off a Hub Meet the Brewer, a South Sound

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

Best of Olympia 2019: Old School Pizzeria

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

Tacoma eagerly anticipated the grand opening of Sixth Ave. haunt, Fish, Fish, Fish. We waited, and we waited, and then one day it had finally arrived only to close its doors for renovation shortly thereafter. Since then, we've seen some action just behind the curtain and we can celebrate once

As I write this now, my socks are soggy, and my toes are cold right down to the core. I was underprepared for this foreign snow and slush that has invaded the South Sound but was desperate to escape my cabin fever. I think I had lost my marbles a

Eat This Now: Tacos Alambres

Huzzah! It looks like just maybe the sun has joined us in this season we call spring, kicking off the season of al fresco dining in the South Sound. Around these parts al fresco dining season is a very brief and highly coveted era. Few restaurants, save for the waterfront

Eat This Now: Smoke + Cedar brunch

I have to admit, I'm a pretty enthusiastic eater. What can I say; I like food ... especially breakfast! There's a problem, through. I rarely get a chance to eat breakfast out. I need to hit the home coffee pot for hours before even considering putting proper clothing on to

Eat This Now: Hummus plate

Coffee house nibbles are often slim pickings featuring delectable baked goods and not much else. B Sharp Coffee House though is a whole other beast with a menu highlighting housemade sandwiches, flatbreads and starter platters featuring veggies, cheeses and charcuteries - though yummy baked goods are within arm's reach. Among the

Eat This Now: Catfish and Shrimp

Sometimes I make the greatest, yummiest discovers when poking around sleepy strip malls. Case in point: Beau Legs Fish and Chips. Located in a Lacey strip mall, Beau Legs is a casual, intimate dining option specializing in Southern style cuisine with Cajun flair. Think catfish, jambalaya, hush puppies and sweet potato pie.

Eat This Now: Western Burger

Terry's Office Tavern is a true tavern. The neighborhood hangout in Tacoma's Proctor District, by definition, serves only beer and wine. If a domestic beer, reasonable priced glass of vino or classic craft brew is your thing, Terry's has you covered. Suds and sips have served them well since they

Eat This Now: Beast of Burden

Ambiance, it counts for a lot and can make or break an establishment. Ambiance, after all, is a vital component of a restaurant's character. Of course, the place doesn't need to be fancy to have an appealing ambiance. There's a time and a place for everything and if it's time

Eat This Now: Toasted Sesame Wraps

Sometimes strip malls yield tasty adventures in dining. Take Royal Thai Bistro in Fircrest for instance. Situated next door to Pint Defiance beer store and a slew of empty commercial storefronts on the cusp of the Tacoma/University Place intersection, you'll discover Royal Thai's intimate and classy dining space. Naturally they

My clothes dryer is busted. It's the third one in a year that has gone kaput. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm cursed. Though this is bad news and highly inconvenient, there is a silver lining to the stormy cloud of having to visit the laundromat, the laundromat resides next

Eat This Now: N'Awlins Po'Boy

I've recently shared my admiration of Boathouse 19's devilishly delectable desserts. I must not be the only one. During my last visit, the bartender informed me someone covered their dessert menu and used the phrase, ahem, "happy ending" in reference to 19's sweet treats. Though I implore you to try any

Everyone Yen Ching tonight!

Before there was a Food Network or even a city of Lakewood, there was the Yen Ching Restaurant - a steadfast friend doling out exotic flavors from all corners of Asia as it watched other Lakewood International District restaurants come and go over its 30-year history. Lakewood is now a city,
