Zombies in Tacoma

Imagine my surprise when I found out, thanks to Tacoma Komo, that there would be zombies running aroundTacoma on Halloween.  Not only that, but they are going to be in my hood—the North End!

 Be aware and be very scared as these Zombies will try to zombify you and take you back with them to their lair in the 2011 Dawn of the Dead Dash.  If you want to find out more, and are not too afraid, then check out the info at:

 It’s bound to be a frightfully fun and a monstrous ghould time!

 

Let’s Get to the Point–Point Defiance that is!

 Of all the wonderful places to visit around Tacoma, one stands out above the rest–Pt. Defiance Park.  It may no longer be our best kept secret however since it has been named as one of 10 “Great Public Spaces in America” by the American Planning Association!

All I can say is that the people around Tacoma are extremely excited about this and the extra boost it will provide for Tacoma’s economy from visitors who come to stay, play, eat and drink. 

Now I may not be able to wear my fancy heels on the beach or trails but this is a sacrifice a Diva must make when enjoying nature’s beauty.  I love you Point Defiance–don’t ever change!

Old 6th Avenue had a Farm…EE I EE I O

Okay, well they don’t really have a farm but what they do have is one fabulous Farmer’s Market!  Now of course I may be biased as I do share the same pea patch with the awesome Prez of the 6th Ave. Business District, Mr. David Printz, however, I also am a big supporter of everything local in our wonderful community and of course around Tacoma.

Having said this, I am excited to tell everyone about the 2011 6th Avenue Farmer’s Market Harvest Festival Fundraiser!  YEEEE HAWWWW!  Now I don’t know about you but every time I hear the word ‘festival’ I think beer.  Well, I actually think beer most of the time but enough about me. 

Our locally famous pub and eatery, E-9, will be presenting specials on handcrafted beers which are not to be missed.  There will also be a knock down battle between local restaurants in a chili cook-off and home-made soups from our local farmers and vendors.  But wait, there’s more!  They are bringing  back the pie eating contest!!  Puyallup Fair, eat your heart out! (or your pie).

Mark this date on your calendars:  Tuesday, September 27th from 4 – 7 p.m. on North Pine St. between 6th Ave and 7th Ave.

Tickets are only $10!!!  How do you get one?  Contact us or visit http://www.tacomafarmersmarket.com/calendar

This is the very last Farmer’s Market of the year for 6th Ave so come on out and show some love for the people who make it happen.  Oh, and maybe buy a carrot or two and some squash and zucchinis, or homemade apple butter or chocolate covered bacon, or fresh oysters and crabs, some bling, or lavender seeds or maybe some killer cookies, a blanket, some corn, peas (if you really want to), jams, jellies, spices, fresh handmade cheese, some more carrots, a dill plant, root vegetables, fresh caught salmon or clams, fresh-cut valley flowers, then take a long beer break and buy buy buy!!

See you there! 

Hugs and Carrots.
