Brewers and Builders 2019 - Rebuilding Together South Sound

Last night, approximately 200 people from Pierce County gathered at Freighthouse Station in Tacoma for Rebuilding Together South Sound’s annual Brewers & Builders event. The venue was packed with a variety of beers to sample from area breweries, delicious food (& great service) from Georgio’s catering, generous raffle prizes, giant jenga, cornhole, beer pong, and an awesome band. In August, I posted a save the date for the event, so I’m following up with photos I took of the fruits of our labor. It felt like a great success, and left me feeling so proud of my community.

Art on the Ave

Art on the Ave, according to the website of 6th Ave Business District’s website, is “an annual music and art festival hosted by the 6th Ave Business District, Tacoma WA’s Most Eclectic District, along 6th Avenue from State St. to Alder. In its 19th year and attracting thousands of patrons, it is Tacoma’s largest arts-based yearly event.”

My new camera arrived the day before the event, so I was stoked at the timing that allowed me to have a new rig for the coolest art fair in Tacoma.

Fortunately for A on the A, it was PACKED. Unfortunately for me, the sun and crowds were a bit overwhelming, so I only managed to snap a few photos. Here are my faves.
