A brief glimpse of the new Dirty Oscar’s breakfast menu featuring an interview with chef Aaron and behind the scenes look at DOA.

Chef Aaron seems to be striving for greatness. He made it clear to us that while positive criticism is nice, it does nothing to help improve his craft, something he seems passionate about. So, I’ve taken some time to reflect on the food we had that day, and put on my best critic hat to offer some detailed pros and cons for each of the dishes we were privy to this sitting, and the menu in general.
We walked through the Lincoln District on S 38th. If you haven’t been there, you need to go now, but if you want to live vicariously through us, then vote. We want to hear you voice to where we should go next. Vote on the poll… and in the mean time, enjoy the video.
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!

In this latest video cast: Derrick has a moment with a cup of coffee, we explore one of the premiere roasters in Tacoma, and we present the first ever GCF interview!
I can’t quite remember exactly when coffee transitioned from mid-day luxury to morning necessity, but sometime in college I began relying on my morning cup of coffee like a paratrooper relies on air resistance. It keeps me up…and prevents me from plummeting a great many leagues to certain doom. Coffee is an essential part of my morning, but is far from a mindless item on my to-do list, it is something I love so very dearly.
Our first ever showdown! For this maiden voyage, our mission is to find the best reuben in Tacoma, and we think we did. Hit “continue reading” to read the full write up!
This post has been a long time in the making. The brilliant idea of a showdown-style no-holds-barred food battle struck us very early on, we just wanted to wait for the right moment to tackle such an epic undertaking. We settled on the reuben partly from an earlier post about the MSM Deli, in which I get carried away about the reuben, suggesting that maybe it was one of the best in town other than perhaps The Swiss. I spent some time thinking about that statement, and realized how incredibly naive I was being. I hadn’t tried every reuben in Tacoma. How could I even begin to suggest it might be one of the best? Turns out it’s not. I am a dick. Simple solution: we needed to find the best. Ladies and gentlemen, this post is my redemption.
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.
