Tacoma was recently featured in a report by KIRO-7 news’ Kevin McCarty. McCarty notes,
“Tacoma has always been a beer town… and these days business is booming”. “Several independent craft beer makers are reviving the city’s historic brewery district. Craft breweries large and small are popping up in and around the city’s historic brewery district along Pacific avenue in roughly the same area that once housed three large brewers a century ago. Heidelberg, Columbia and the original Pacific breweries once operated very close to an area now seeing an explosion of beer makers. From 19th street to south 55, large independent breweries are up and running or in the works with several small micro-brewers also dotting the area. Recently Gig Harbor based Seven Seas has announced they’ll open a large scale operation after converting an old warehouse near S. 21st and Jefferson streets.”
For those of us that love beer and Tacoma… this is certainly a “win-win.”
I was was recently interviewed by Fox 13 News regarding a proposal going in front of the Tacoma City Council that recommends the city start "flipping" derelict properties. Given my experience flipping houses I feel that an $800K grant is not enough money for the city to impact the many derelict properties in Tacoma. I believe the money could be better utilized to provide incentives to private individuals to take on the projects instead. I will be working with City of Tacoma officials to further explore more realistic and concrete ideas on how to best utilize the grant money for maximum impact for the residents of Tacoma.

We here in Tacoma have been anxiously awaiting the start of construction by boutique hotel chain McMenamins to restore the Elks Lodge in downtown. Well the latest from McMenamins website shows some amazing "before" pictures of the heavily vandalized property, and predicts an opening in late 2013. Oh, please let me it be so!
