2121 Tavern

There’s huge dive bar territory over in the Parkland/Spanaway area that I have yet to uncover, and man, it’s a freakin’ gold mine up in that ’hood. It literally gets my heart racing as I think of the trashy possibilities that lie upon Pacific Highway and its surrounding streets. For years

Ames Bros vs. Pearl Jam

As I’ve made clear on plenty of occasions, I’m a Pearl Jam fan. I have been for a long time. While initially I got into the band because there was a chick in my honors English class that wore long underwear under her shorts and made my teenage libido run
