It’s been three months. I e-mailed. No response. So to Twitter I turned….

My tweet: tntdiner @BurgervilleUSA When is the nomad coming to Tacoma? Reply tweet, pretty please.

BurgervilleUSA’s tweet: @tntdiner Hi! We’re looking into events in the Tacoma area in hopes of coming up there soon. If U know of any good ones, please let us know!
