DO YOU KNOW YOUR TACOMA HISTORY ... AND LOVE FOOD? >>
Foodcaching is a new smart phone app alerting customers of awesome food deals at 16 restaurants in the greater Tacoma area. You may download the app for free on your iPhone and Android here.
The Weekly Volcano has teamed up with Foodcaching for the True Tacoman game. Every Tuesday and Friday right here on Spew, we post a Tacoma history trivia provided by the Washington State History Museum. If you know the answer, run to one of the 16 participating restaurants, come clean with answer and you'll receive points on your Foodcaching app, which you downloaded free here. We'll be running the True Tacoman trivia game through the end of the year.
The person will the most points on Dec. 31 will be crowned the True Tacoman and be flooded with various food prizes.
Friday we asked if you knew the tie between William F. Tolmie and Edward Huggins, who were Hudson's Bay Company officials during the early days of American settlement on Puget Sound. You spent the last four days telling the restaurants listed below that they were brothers-in-law and, thereby, scoring points on the Foodcaching app. It was an easy task – a lot easier than dealing with your own brother-in-law.
Today is Tuesday, which means we post another trivia question as part of the True Tacoman contest.
Babe Ruth came to Tacoma in October 1924 to play exhibition baseball. The other major event that occurred during his stay was:
Answer the question correctly at one of the 16 participating restaurants below and score points - besides scoring awesome food deals from the restaurants. The correct answer will be revealed Friday, Dec. 9 on Spew. Also keep an eye on this blog for bonus game points and a special invite to the True Tacoman Game Party in early 2012.
Oh, you can download the free app here.
