That list makes me salivate. It's good to see you're still here, Jan! I see Lauren daily on Facebook, but have not talked to anyone from here for a few years!

If you want to hit Tacoma in the summer, I'm happy to organize. Is Connie still around? If so, maybe we can co-coordinate. My current burger infatuation is the Walker Burger at Maxwell's. BOTM already paid worship to the Asado burger, which remains one of my favorite burgers in all of Tacoma land, but they have a burger dip now that absolutely makes me swoon (and the yuca fries. Oh. God. The yuca fries! I want to make disgusting chomping noises whenever I think of them). Other options: The Bite at Hotel Murano makes a stellar burg, as does Crown Bar in the Sixth Avenue District (very close to where we dined at Asado).

I miss you people!

girlchow, great to see you online again! It's been waaaaay too long! Hope to see you again sometime, soon. I'm traveling back and forth from the coast a lot, so would love to try some good spots in Tacoma! Leslie (aka Blue Heron)

I possibly would be able to do: 14, 20, 21, 22, 29, 30. Some of these dates may get booked over the next week.
My preference would be for Monday the 20th, though! Because I think that's my safest option. :)

Monday the 20th is a good day for me too....and so far for everyone else I think. How about we choose that?

I think I could do 20th, too. or 21st or 22nd.

I'm choosing Luc for this month, and really looking forward to trying the famed souffle potato crisps in addition to the burger :rolleyes:

Now the hard part, when? For me something the week of the 20th either the 20th, 22nd or 23rd would be optimal, but if folks prefer earlier in the month I could do the 6th 7th, 8th or 9th.

Do any of those work for the rest of you?

Anyone up for a BoM outing next week?

I'm open the 22nd or 23rd.

Let's go with the 23rd. Anyone else in?
What time works for you Lauren? We're flexible...

Anytime 6:30 or later works for me. Paul will probably come too.

Ack, I didn't see this. Is it too late to sway you back to the 22nd? I can only make that night. If not, I'll just go on my own or with a later group.

the 22nd works better for me, too.

It was a fun evening at Maggie Bluffs the other night, but sorry the weather didn't cooperate and we had to have our burgers inside! Crazy weather! Also the location was a bit tricky to get to, but the view is great once you are there.

The burger and fish n chips were good, but the burger not nearly as good as other places we've been. Eden and I asked for ours Medium Rare and it came out more like Medium Well, and on hindsight, I think the server did say at the beginning they are all cooked the same, medium, but we were hoping for some leniency. The cheese was a little skimpy and over melted so that I didn't really taste it. It was a nice touch that they split Eden's and my burger and fries in the kitchen onto 2 plates for us. The side of onion rings was good. On on a warm day if one could sit outside, I'd go again for the fish n chips for sure and maybe another burger, but it's not a burger destination choice.

I've tagged Eden to pick next month's location!
