We hit Teriyaki #4 (twice) for what may be the best endless sushi in Tacoma, and definitely the sexiest.
Our first restaurant visit by request, we hadn’t even considered visiting Teriyaki #4 before a tweet convinced us otherwise. A bit isolated from the rest of downtown, Teriyaki #4 sits on 22nd and Pacific Ave, a location that – assuming you are a large carbon-footprinted commuter like us – requires you to overshoot the address by two blocks, dodge the link, make a U-turn and return to some free parking in the rear. That alone is certainly enough to ward off the laziest of us, but we were more deterred by the name and pop art posters of glazed chicken and bubble tea plastered on the store windows. Thinking it would be decent to good teriyaki and a short menu of run-of-the-mill sushi, we were pleasantly surprised by the classy decor and lengthy inventive menu where for a mere $14.99 (after 3:00 it’s $17.99) you have unfettered access to the full roll menu and a considerable sampling of nigiri.
Enough to warrant two trips, a gazillion photos, and a couple busted guts.
Frisko Freeze. You’ve seen it driving down Division on your way to work, maybe you’ve been there a time or two or you’re a lifer, any way you need to get back over there for a burger and a shake. We headed down with a few friends, stood in the cold, ate, chatted and shot some video. Sit back, watch our silly little video, then throw on a coat and head down to Frisko Freeze to get your own greasy delights.
As always, head down, stand in line just to let them know you heard of them from us and receive nothing! Except a good burger!

A Recap of our joint birthday extravaganza on 6th Ave
Adam’s and my birthday are the 20th and 21st of November, respectively. This is perfect fodder for all sort of sordid and exciting joint birthdays in the future, but our first foray into this – celebrated a couple weeks ago across much of 6th Ave – was relatively tame all things considered. We convinced nearly 30 friends and relatives to join us on a crawl which started at Masa and ended in disarray, with 8 different restaurants visited in between. Each location had a “required” drink and food purchase. Whoever crossed the most items off their to-do list was crowned the unofficial GCF badass of the night. This write up is a recap of that evening with highlights, lowlights, and hopefully a few words of wisdom from one blogger who’s twenties are officially behind him.
Adam’s got a couple more year of irresponsibility and debauchery ahead of him however.
