3 to See: Week of June 20

Celebrate the First Day of Summer

What’s better than celebrating the first day of summer at Wild Waves Theme & Water Park? All of this and a classic cornhole tournament with amazing prizes, like free tickets, season passes, a summer cabana party, swag, and more. From Noon to 1 p.m. on June 21, competitors can register on-site for the competition with matches beginning at 1 p.m. All teams will receive a free shirt and headband for playing.

Taste of Tacoma Returns

Great food and drinks, awesome live music, and a scenic outdoor setting, it can all be found June 21 through 23 at the Emerald Queen Casino Taste of Tacoma in Point Defiance Park. Come for the food prepared by more than 40 restaurants, artisans, and food booths, and stay for The Taste Cooks! interactive live cooking show. The event is free to attend with drink and dining discount packages on sale now.

Under the Big Top

Parents and grandparents may remember a time when it was not uncommon for a traveling circus to come through town, but today’s children have not experienced the wonder of the big top. From June 26 through July 7, former Ringling Bros ringmaster Kevin Venardos presents a unique Broadway-style circus production in Tacoma’s Wright Park. Tickets are available online.

Kobrew opens at Point Ruston

As if we needed another reason to visit Point Ruston; Kobrew, a Korean gastropub and eatery, just opened on the scenic stretch of Tacoma’s most exciting recreational area. Kobrew’s soft-opening took place on Tuesday, June 18, and will continue to be open for dinner service from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. daily. Lunch service will eventually be available as well.  The menu is designed for sharing, with classic Korean dishes like bibimbap, bo ssam pork belly, along with Koerean-inspired pub fare. Kobrew also boasts an impressive onsite brewing operation, complete with 14 rotating tap beers. We can’t wait to see what other additions are yet to come.
