    What about west?

    I feel so forgotten. J/k. If I want to go, it looks like I'll have to take a ferry.

    Can't get much easier than having someone else take you 1/2 way there

    Hey, can you use tinyurl.com for that long link please? It's breaking the page.

    How about the Tacoma Waterfront next time around?

    Oh, so Mainsail is the only guy who lives in Tacoma, eh? :P

    So are we set on Factoria then and we are considering Tacoma for next time after that, or this next time for Tacoma? I'm confused......:?

    Looks like it's going to be Tacoma next month. Due to the recent activities in Tacoma. Ok, Mr. Tacoma expert...

    What's a good place near the waterfront?

    There are several choices along the Ruston Way waterfront, although they all tend to be pricey. There’s a Ram, Duke's Chowder House, CI Shenanigans, Anthony's Harbor Lights, Lobster Shop, Katie Downs, and a couple more if I’m not mistaken. I think Katie Downs might not be usable, I’m pretty sure they’re posted 21 and older.

    Personally I would fee uncomortable even with a pub, or brewery. Even if it had a section for under 21. What's the Chowder house like?

    Furthest south last time was Tacoma, but only 4 members showed last time, two with significant others.

    If you want to try to convince some Portlanders to come up and join us, I'm sure we'd all love to have you, but you probably will have better luck finding them in the Oregon forums, rather than the Washington forums.

    Katie Downs is most definitely 21 and over only.

    The other are mostly more expensive (at least for the area) though I've never been to Chowder House.

    The Narrows. Fortunately, they don't start for a while, yet.

    There is a great pizza place called Trackside Pizza.....unfortunately it is in Puyallup's jurisdiction, not Tacoma's.......however there is a Rock Wood Fired Pizza in Tacoma somewhere that the wife and I were going to try one night, and they didn't seem too expensive, but very busy......

    I like the idea of doing it on the waterfront. We have two other options besides the restaurants mentioned. One of the docks has a snack bar with the usual hotdogs and hamburgers and will allow us to sit outside with the public. The other option is for everyone to bring their own burgers, hot dogs, or kabobs and I’ll bring my little weber grille, again, sitting out in the open.



    I will be bringing my video camera.

    Hey, that sounds like a good idea, either get something at the stand or bring your own BBQ

    And a video camera is a good idea.....



    Once we know exactly where things are at, give directions/address and what to bring, etc.......

    Y'know, as long as you're bringing it down to Tacoma, this sounds like the sort of thing I might find a way to adjust my work schedule for. Heck, I may even rope a friend or two into coming along if I can find people to trade shifts with.

    The open open carry meeting seems fun.

    Ok, it sounds settled. Now, exactly where is this snackbar? Does it have an address? If so, I'll post a googlemap link and make the formal announcement.

    Also, is there opportunity for things like kite flying, frisbee flying, stuff like that?

    The snack bar is located in front of the Les Davis Pier. The web page has a link to a map. It’s easy to get there. I5 to 705, follow the signs to the Shuster Parkway, follow the signs to Ruston Way. You can even go fishing there if you want. Yes, there's plenty of room for frisbees and kites.
