This Saturday, August 11, craft-beer enthusiasts and fans of good music (or “people” as we call them here in the Pacific Northwest) will make the pilgrimage to downtown Tacoma for the annual block party: Brew Five Three Beer and Music Festival located on South 9th and Broadway.
Yes, the breweries will be there – more than 35 of them from around Washington State.
Yes, the bands will be there – Bryson Foster Band from 1:30 – 3 p.m.; Candy Shoppe from 3:30 – 5 p.m.; Booboolala from 6:15 – 7:45 p.m.
Yes, the food trucks will be there – can you legally even call it a block party if they aren’t?
Yes, the lawyers will be there – wait…what?
Tacoma’s expert DUI defense attorneys, Smith & White, will have a booth with on-site breathalyzer tests and prizes for those who pass (lower is better – I checked). In an effort to keep Tacoma and festivalgoers safe, they’ll reimburse the cost of a taxi or ride-share (up to $20) for the first 20 people who submit receipts.
