Guys! Take a peek out of your window right now! Unless Washington is being her usual temperamental self, that shiny orb in the sky is called the sun. And I'm pretty sure she's sticking around for a while. Or, at the very least a few consecutive days here and there,

It's officially spring! In nature that means the bees are buzzing, the animals are all getting a little twitterpated and the flowers are blossoming. It's the season of renewal and new beginnings.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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
