|Nice. I will have to check out the finished painted intersection as well.|

|Market was hopping! So sad I couldn't spend more time there -- would have loved to hear more of the music entertainment. Don't think I'd have the guts to perform in public at their age -- they rocked!
Congrats Heather -- you put on a great show. Can't wait till next week!

|The all-girl band that played the market kick-off was called Starstruck and they are seriously good - especially given their tender ages. They play quite a few 80s covers which I particularly enjoy.|

|Its nice to see something in Tacoma actually work as intended.|

He's everywhere. The downtown Farmers Market people apparently infiltrated the 6th Avenue market.

That's hilarious! I wonder if that was done on purpose or if it was just one of those synchronicity things.

|Stumbled onto this last night and it was very fun. The tweenie girl band were great. Sadly I only heard a couple of tunes before they went on break.
Once we had walked the market a couple of times we crossed the street to Asada. The polenta was incredible.

|The polenta at Asado IS incredible! I finished my night toting a huge truckload of supplies to storage and then returning to N. Pine to make sure everything looked okay. Then I relaxed with with some friends at Masa. We were served by the always lovely and attentive bartender Olivia in the downstairs bar. She is there every Tuesday night; it might become a tradition.
The oysters were under the Schucks sign only because that is a good spot in the shade where the oysters could stay cooler. I didn't even notice that I'd put them under the sign. That is pretty funny.
Hello! I'm Heather and I'm a bit manic about Tacoma.
I'll probably be blogging about my experiences in Tacoma as they relate to the environment (natural and built), social (in)justice, community building, economic development, bio-diesel, public transit, biking, gardening, home improvement, food & wine, and my little family (me, my husband, one dog, one cat). This is my first attempt at writing a blog - so please bear with me.
