Tacoma Possibilities

There’s been plenty of news regarding older buildings getting some TLC and future use. If there’s one thing I dig about Tacoma it’s that there are so many great older buildings. Tacoma certainly doesn’t need to become a strip mall haven with so much existing interesting architecture. With such an eclectic mix of old and new, Tacoma is well positioned to become more of a sightseeing destination. Now if we could only get a pub crawl worthy of some real attention. If there is to be a Brewery District, possible brewery/restaurant in the Elks Lodge, and a bar/restaurant in The Mecca Theater, fans of beer would have something to truly admire. Maybe then St. Patty’s Day will be a much larger celebration here in Grit City. And who knows? The beer drinking aficionados can only imagine the possibilities. Cinco de Mayo anyone?

Right on my friend. The elks lodge... man, she's going to need buckets of love.

I totally agree. But if it is pulled off, man, talk about an awesome finished product. I still don't think I've ever seen a building quite like it.

I don't know why you don't go into some sort of business yourself. You seem to be quite savvy about business. I wouldn't mind seeing 'Pete's Place' on a marquee somewhere DT Tacoma. Hell, I'd even go and buy a beer. But then again, I'd expect it to be comped.
