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.

South Sound restaurants raise money for Haiti

A few events happening around town to raise money for Haiti:
1. Buy a glass of McGavick wine at Primo Grill or Crown Bar and proceeds will benefit Doctors Without Borders.
2. Moctezuma’s is hosting something they’ve cheekily titled “Tacos for Haiti.” They’ll donate proceeds from one day’s business to the Red Cross to benefit Haiti.
