Drown your sorrows

I checked my 401k (dropping every day), took note of gas prices as I drove by the 7-11 (dropping every day) and then headed to Tempest Lounge last night.

After taking a seat at the bar I saw a small flyer with the header “Recession Relief.” The Lounge is offering Tom Cat gin or Hussar vodka and your favorite mixer for $3.50. Add a fresh juice squeeze for $1.

Co-owner Denise Tempest says the reaction to this special has been very positive.

I’m not advocating you drink your troubles away. But take my advice: don’t look at your 401k before heading to a bar.

Tempest Lounge is at 913 Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Tacoma. 253-272-4904
