Yup, it's more foodie news coming your way. Add the following to your already too full calendar. You're going to need to fuel your adventures and productivity, after all. 

It looks as though former casino turned Mitchell's Café is undergoing yet another transition. Though the building went vacant for what felt like eons, Mitchell's breathed new life into the space but never seemed to pick up much steam. The space is now expected to be the new home to the North End Tavern. Once a beloved resident of Tacoma's Proctor District, the North End Tavern has chosen to plant its roots in Ruston and rebrand as the North End on Pearl. Development is already underway, so stay tuned. 

If anyone knows me, they know that I love me some fry bread. Seriously, I crave it. If you do, too, you're in luck. This Friday, June 1, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Church of the Indian Fellowship will be serving up Indian Tacos. These tacos are like regular tacos with all the fixins but better because instead of a crispy corn shell, the vehicle for the goods is fry bread. Get some. 2232 E. 28th St., Tacoma

Start planning, because Father's Day is right around the corner. Maybe you've already picked out yet another mug or sweatshirt with your daddy-o's favorite team's logo emblazoned upon it, but if I may make a suggestion, you ought to make your reservations for Pacific Grill's Father's Day Bourbon Brunch, right now. Sunday, June 17, starting at noon, your pops can indulge five courses of brunch bites paired with the brown liquor. PG's regular brunch will still be taking place, but for this exclusive experience, tickets are $99 a seat. Call 253.627.3535 to make your reservation. 1502 Pacific Ave., Tacoma

Proctor, Tacoma

Suns out, food trucks out! Food truck season has begun and you can look forward to a least a couple of reasons to stand in line and nosh the nation's fastest growing foodie trend, food truck fare.
