Tacoma Travel Guide
Celebs: Will they ever learn to do their shopping on the Internet? After showing up at the MTV VMAs (where his group Fall Out Boy picked up an award), bassist Pete Wentz stayed out West to do promotion work for his fashion line, Clandestine Industries. Along the way, he made a pit stop at the Hustler Hollywood sex shop to purchase a naughty-schoolgirl outfit, potentially for girlfriend Ashlee Simpson. (It's okay, Pete, you would look cute in it too.)
We don't mean to shame anybody, so Jaunted recommends that if you choose to buy your "grown-up toys," you do so at a local specialty store instead of a big ugly chain. Try San Francisco's Good Vibrations or or New York City's Toys in Babeland. Or, just check out other people's amorous gadgetry at the Museum of Sex in New York City.
If only there were personal fouls in baseball. Triple-A is no longer safe from celebrities now that Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have been spotted, uh, on the bases at a practice for the Tacoma Rainiers. (Lachey is a part owner of the team, which is affiliated with the Seattle Mariners.) They already have luxury boxes, why do they want our bleacher seats as well? Maybe Minnillo prefers the innocence of AAA to the Yankees boxes she sat in while she was dating shortstop Derek Jeter.
If you'd rather score a free bobblehead than a kiss, check out this updated list of minor-league promotions all over the U.S. And if for some reason Nick's team doesn't spark your interest, we know of some other great minor league ballparks.
