A Carnivore’s Dream Store at Point Ruston

If you haven’t hit Point Ruston lately, you’re in for a surprise. The year-round Indoor Public Market has brought a Washington State legacy business to Tacoma — Owens Meats.

Owens Meats is one of the oldest businesses in the state. Now, you don’t have to drive to Cle Elum to experience this fourth-generation business nicknamed the “candy store for carnivores.”

If you are going to get your barbecue on this weekend, go grab some steak, marinated meats, sauces, and some of the best jerky around. (P.S.: Try the marinated Hawaiian short ribs.)


While you’re stocking up on treats from Point Ruston make sure to visit Dune Peninsula Park and walk over the Wilson Way Bridge to climb a series of stairs and slides on the face of a 50-foot slope. Read more about it here.

MultiCare Health System to Launch Innovation Program

MultiCare Health System announced yesterday a partnership with the Innovation Institute to advance its efforts to creatively address health care issues. This collaboration will provide the clinical teams and staff at MultiCare with new resources to support innovation to improve health care, reduce costs, and enhance and save lives.

MultiCare entered into the agreement with the Innovation Institute, a national, independent medical product incubator and health care services provider, to spark innovation across the health system. The Institute’s Innovation Lab, staffed with scientists, doctors, and product experts who evaluate ideas, build prototypes, and take them to market, will work closely with MultiCare Capital Partners, a team focused on fostering innovation within MultiCare.
