Belgian Beer and French Cheese Tasting

No one really needs a reason to drink beer; like sex or miniature golf, beer itself is cause enough to partake. But those who feel they need an excuse to imbibe in public ought to think about checking out the Belgian Beer and French Cheese Tasting Monday, May 7, at Vin Grotto Café and Wine Bar. Blanche de Moines, Boon Gueze, Boon Kriek Lambic and Witkap Triple beers mix with Charrollais, Mariolles and Mimolette cheeses, and experts in both fields explain why. — Jake de Paul

Seafood and sun

Though the South Sound dining scene has improved markedly over the past decade, something the rainy climate makes difficult is the coveted outdoor nosh. We’re not talking about the faux outdoor settings provided by themed shopping complexes (though those can be enjoyable too). We mean honest al fresco munching, under the bright blue (or star struck) sky.

Downtown Tacoma’s Sea Grill has hauled out its eight patio tables, pushing hard it’s Seafood Bacchanalia for two —  King crab, Australian lobster, grilled Alaskan salmon, Marquesa prawns, scallops, mashed potatoes and asparagus — as the perfect meal on its sunny, southwest facing patio.  Unfortunately, it’s raining as I write this. — JDP
