First stop: Happy Hour at Pacific Grill! Everybody's happy at The P-G, but certainly not just for one hour.
"Basically happy hour is all day,” says manager Franco D’Amico. “We have terrific deals on everything on the menu.”
Like great appetizers and Old fashioneds made with barrel aged whiskey..
Stop number two: a neighborhood bar for people from all aspects of life. It's called The Mix.
“It's kind of a play on the mixed drinks with a mixed crowd,” says co-owner Brock Leach.
Sure you can get a beer, but you owe it yourself to try a Yummy Butt. This specialty is always topped with a cherry!
Night time is the right time for a bit off boot scootin' boogie at Steel Whiskey American Whiskey Company.
“A lot of people come in just to dance,” says Jason Deptula.
Now you ain't expected to be good at first. That's why they give free lessons. The bar has 120 varieties of whiskey and, for a snack, the chicken and waffle sliders are somethin' else.
The final stop is Tacoma Cabana and Rum Bar, home of the flaming Volcano Bowl.This Tiki bar is generous with the rum, which makes it a great drink to share with friends at the end of a busy night.
“Or begin. Or end. Or right in the middle too,” says co-owner Jason Alexander. “There's never a bad time for a volcano bowl.”
Four fun places to have a good time in Tacoma.
