Two events for your dining calendar – Tacoma’s Museum of Glass will have a slider cook-off in March with Tacoma chefs competing behind the grills. And in Gig Harbor, a first-time beer festival in May.

Museum of Glass Slider Cook-off
When: 6:30-10:30 p.m. Saturday March 3, 2012
Where: Museum of Glass
Cost: $35 in advance
Info: Click here

An event posted by local chefs keeps popping up on the TNT Diner Facebook feed, so it’s worth mentioning that the Museum of Glass will have a slider cook-off March 3 with Tacoma chefs competing behind the grill. Details are still in the works, but I do know that so far Chef Matt Stickle of the Bite Hotel Murano has signed up and so has Chef Bill Trudnowski of the Adriatic Grill. I’ll write more as the event nears. Until then, click here for details. If you want a say about which slider Adriatic Chef Bill Trudnowski should cook, click here.

Gig Harbor Beer Festival
When: noon- 7 p.m. Saturday May 12, 2012
Where: Blazing Onion, Uptown Gig Harbor
Cost: $20 in advance
Info: Click here

The date and location are set, but the tap list is not quite ready. Organizers just announced the first ever Gig Harbor Beer Festival, planned for May 12. The $20 admission will buy eight tasting tokens and a glass. Each additional 5.5 ounce pour will cost $1. Local restaurants will serve food. You must be 21 to attend. Proceeds benefit the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation.

I emailed organizer John Fosberg this morning and he said via email, “… we don’t have any confirmed breweries as of today. Securing brewers is our next focus and I will send you further info as it becomes available.” Watch here for brewers and taps.
