Happy hour report: Primo Grill’s new $5 menu

Tacoma’s Sixth Avenue neighborhood is designed for food lovers, but on Tuesdays when the Sixth Avenue Farmers Market springs up in the late afternoon, it’s where I head for in-depth “foodsploring.”

A recent trip found Old Milwaukee Cafe selling desserts. There was fresh pie, locally made cheese, ice cream, seafood and produce, too. A caterer called Miss Monica’s Bayou Oasis served Southern fare, and a new startup company called Hilltop Pop Shop had just begun selling its frozen treats there.

What I like is that the market is compact and easy to navigate, and it is just a block from the Tacoma Food Co-op, a store centered on selling Tacoma-made food and products.

A final destination after “foodsploring” on Sixth? Primo Grill for happy hour. The restaurant’s new $5 happy hour menu makes it one of the best deals in town outside of Masa’s all-day happy hour Sundays-Tuesdays (in the bar, they’re across Sixth from Primo) and Pacific Grill’s half-price bar happy hour all day, every day, in downtown Tacoma.

Wild turkey: Crown Bar hosts a pre-Thanksgiving party this Wednesday with a cocktail aptly named ‘The Waddle’

Pimm's infused with rosemary and limeaid is offered on the Crown Bar cocktail menu.

I just got this email alert from Crown Bar:

“Join us at the Crown this Wednesday (Nov. 24, 2010) night to unwind before the family gathers on the day of thanks. Dino will be mixing ‘The Waddle’ made with Wild Turkey, Wild Turkey Honey liquor, fresh cranberry juice and fresh apple cider. We’ll be serving all of your favorite street food and for blue plate special, it’s burger-rama.”
