If you’ve never noticed, at the bottom left of our extraordinarily unoriginal homepage is a visitor counter. It’s a big day for us because as of the time of this post it says 10,051. We’ve crossed the ten grand mark! Yay! Cool beans! Etc.!
In all seriousness we are thrilled that so many people have crossed our digital threshold. When we started this site we had no idea if anyone would really be interested in reading our ramblings or looking at photos and videos of two guys stuffing their faces, but the response from everybody has been fantastic. We consider ourselves lucky to live in a city rich in restaurants (even if that fact is little known outside the city limits) and about the possibilities ahead.
Moving forward we’d love recommendations from our audience for restaurants, food challenges, or events. Please join the discussion and add your two cents. Just click the comment button…you don’t even need to register or anything mundane like that. Or hit us up on Facebook, Twitter, or email us at email@example.com
THANKS EVERYBODY !!!!
In a slight tangent from usual GCF content, Derrick and Adam find themselves browsing the shelves at 6th Ave’s newest co-op grocery store.
El Guadalajara feeling a little bit of sign envy
It’s funny, we spend countless hours enjoying, discussing, and arguing about food served to us in restaraunts, but we’ve never once discussed the grocery store food we all rely on for actual sustenance. We’ve never gotten in fisticuffs over where the best beer selection is, where your average box of cereal can be found cheapest, or the benefits of organic foods vs. everything else. It honestly never even crossed our minds. This is what happens when you’re mired in first world problems – like this: my Bugatti Veyron Super Sport reeks of Clive Christian Imperial Majesty Perfume! This is one of those problems.
To help rid ourselves of this problem, we are having our first ever grocery post. It’s a short nod to an establishment literally keeping us alive. Hooray for living! In this instance we are celebrating life at the Tacoma Food Co-op, a precocious young and burgeoning member-owned store on the corner of 6th and Junett.
For those visual learners, we present our first ever video segment! Give us feedback. We are hoping to move the blog in this direction. To more of a vlog…If that’s even a thing.
September 3rd 2011 was a gorgeous day in Tacoma. The sun beat down on the new 21st street park as thirsty Tacomans gathered thick as ants to a ripe peach, all to sample an enormous selection of fine craft beers from over 40 different brewers. In addition to local brewers like E-9, Silver City, Harmon, M-T Head, Seven Seas, and newly unveiled Wingman Brewery, breweries came from California, Oregon, Idaho, Colorado, Alaska, even as far away as Alberta Canada (Unibroue) to help support the Boys and Girls club and our taste buds.
