My head is constantly spinning from the plethora of holidays that circulate around food and drink. Obviously, dining with loved ones is the ultimate way to celebrate so it's only natural that it's always some sort of season: barbeque season, the holiday season, Independence Day is loaded with loaded hot dogs and potato salad. And though Valentine's Day is often steeped in heart-shaped boxes of sweets, that's all behind us. March is nearly upon us, and for the life of me I can't think of an excuse to overindulge (hush now, St. Patty's and Pi Day DO NOT COUNT). Thank goodness, because my waistline needs a breather. What I'm getting at is this week's gossip, is willy nilly ... because we can.

Pre-registration is recommended. 2951 S 28th St., Tacoma
