"ANYTHING DIRTY OR DINGY OR DUSTY" >>>
The bar formerly known as SAX Restaurant and Lounge on Tacoma's Sixth Avenue has reopened as D.O.A., short for Dirty Oscar's Annex - a reference to Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street. And just as Oscar is a musical chap ("I Love Trash"), DOA hosts live music every other Friday and Saturday with an open mic on Tuesday.
The joint has its sights on being a neighborhood hangout, with a concentration on food. In the kitchen, Kyle Wnuk - who did a stint at the Lobster Shop - has created several signature dishes, including beer battered asparagus and a Dirty Burger that sports a pretzel bun, primo meat, bacon, cheddar and tomato jam.
"It is insane what he does with food," says D.O.A. customer Jake Barth said.
D.O.A.'s signature drink is the Moonshine, bartender Fred Vetters' creation made with 80-proof lemonade and his secret twist. It is smooth as Barry White but kicks like Jackie Chan.
