I’ve just arrived at the Taste of Tacoma and what was the first thing I did? Walked around and shot photos of all the menus. I’m always looking out for the gullets and pocketbooks of readers.

A little later this afternoon, I’ll post my top picks for what I mowed my way through today, but here are photos of most of the menus.
