Tacoma eagerly anticipated the grand opening of Sixth Ave. haunt, Fish, Fish, Fish. We waited, and we waited, and then one day it had finally arrived only to close its doors for renovation shortly thereafter. Since then, we've seen some action just behind the curtain and we can celebrate once again, with a new concept, Beefy's Burgers. The vibe remains the same -- fast, fresh grub but the color palette and menu has shifted. Crinkle-cut fries and fresh beef patties will rule them all at ridiculously reasonable prices. You can snag a corn dog, hot dog or shake while you're at it. Doors opened Wednesday, so get in there and get your grub on. 3018 6th Ave., Tacoma,

Doyle's Public House is known for their Irish fare, but they're changing the pace with a Mardi Gras Bayou Pop Up. Think Crawfish Dip, Bayou Salad, Red Beans and Rice, oh my. It doesn't end there. The wildly popular Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, Boiled Shrimp Po Boy and Crawfish Etouffee will all be available as well. Sit at the rail and get yourself a well-crafted Sazerac to pair and you'll be feeling mighty fine. There are no take-out orders accepted for these items so plan to make a date out of it. Specials are running from Feb. 15 to March 6. 208 Saint Helens Ave., Tacoma

Two things are eternal, almost instinctual tools bonding people together: libations and stories. The matrimony of the two will always bring people together. There are three upcoming South Sound events that take full advantage of our love of both:

Dillinger's in Olympia hosts Savor, which invites diners to savor both good drinks and great storytelling. For $25, you can indulge in shared charcuterie plates and a delectable boozy punch while Elizabeth Lord provides her "signature brand of performative storytelling."

This series will reoccur, dates include Feb. 24, March 25, April 29 and May 27, all at 8 p.m. 404 Washington St. SE, Olympia, 360.515.0650

Saturday, Feb. 23, Tacoma Ghost Tours hosts, The Ghost Train. This is a part walk, park light rail journey that includes spooky ghost stories and delicious libations. Begin your adventure with stories and sips at STINK and make your way through town to the reportedly haunted Wingman Brewers. Tickets are $20 and includes a beverage at both STINK and Wingman Brewers. Must be 21 and over to imbibe. 628 Saint Helens Ave. to 509 ½ Puyallup Ave., Tacoma, get tickets at

Tacoma Little Theatre presents Murder by Merlot, hosted by the Social Bar and Grill, Feb. 21-24. This murder-mystery-styled festivity directed by Karen Christensen will tell the tale of the Frudee Family, their winery, a pesky wine critic, enjoy some wine tasting, but be warned, the plot will thicken. Dinner includes four courses, libations are additional. Enjoy a little dinner with a show for a mere $55 per person. Tickets can be purchased by calling 253.272.2281 or visiting 1715 Dock St., Tacoma
