MATT DRISCOLL: CITY CLUB OF TACOMA TO HONOR THE WEEKLY VOLCANO, YO >>>
The City Club of Tacoma â€" turns out itâ€™s not just about somewhat uptight business lunches and the exchanging of cards. Sometimes itâ€™s about handing out muthafucking awards, and on Wednesday, Oct. 7 the Weekly Volcano is getting one, beeeotch! As part of the City Clubâ€™s All Together Now
25-year celebration at the Washington State History Museum, 25 â€œcommunity partnersâ€ will be honored, which includes Broadway Center, Emergency Food Network, Goodwill Industries, Grand Cinema, KPLU, Tacoma Art Museum, Washington State History Museum and University of Washington-Tacoma.
According to the press release, these â€œcommunity partners consistently represent the best of our communityâ€™s effort in arts, social services, education, publications, and diversity.â€
The 25 theme makes sense, since, according to the aforementioned press release, the City Club of Tacoma is celebrating â€œ25 years of exploring community issues and providing the venue for important conversations about Tacoma and the world we live in.â€
Hey, weâ€™ll take an award any way we can get one.
Hereâ€™s my prediction of what will go down that night: The Weekly Volcanoâ€™s acceptance speech will be interrupted by Kanye West. Later, Bill Baarsma will call Kanye a jackass.
