You know how it's said, "The journey is half the trip"?

Watch the Academy Awards on a big ass screen

The Oscars are glitzy, oh so ritzy. An evening filled with glamour and distraction from real life. The night is a way to revel in all things hoity toity whilst hobnobbing with the elite. Not just the Hollywood elite either, but also Tacoma's finest. There's even a good cause involved. Oh
