    Every Thursday is MOTO Thursday at Edison City Alehouse in Tacoma. They will bring up MOTO related videos on YouTube or you can bring in a MOTO related DVD and they will play it on the TV. At the moment they do not have food available on Thursdays but that might be changing. You are free to bring food in or have it delivered if you are hungry. They are 21+ and have a great draft beer selection that includes a little bit of everything as well as a handful of ciders on draft. They also have a large bottle/can selection to choose from that covers all of the bases from IPA, Pale, Porter, Stout, Sours, Ciders and everything in between. I usually park near the front door and arrive around 4pm. I typically stick around until 7pm or so but they are open until 11pm. There is a outside beer garden area in the front and a dozen or so tables inside. Let me know if you have any questions. Hopefully this can turn into a great weekly meetup for Adventure Bikes, Battle Scooters and everything in between.

    See ya Thursday!

    I just arrived at Edison City. I brought a Six Days ISDE video to watch. Perfect day out for a ride! 20200227_160520.jpg

    Thanks for the pic! Brings back alot of memories. It used to be called Tacoma Brew I believe. I knew the owners then very well and got all their German beer stuff when they sold out. Lived about 5 blocks up the street and worked down 56th a bit wrenchin at a place. Definitely my old stomping grounds. Hopefully if this keeps up i'll be able to join you some Thursday. If you swing into the head shop next door you can say "hello" for Eric. Joni is her name and used to own that place. My old buddy actually built all the wood counters in there if they are still there. Cheers!!

    You are correct. Before it was Edison City it was Tacoma World Beer and before that it was a head shop that even sold water beds back in the day. I have met Joni and her husband many times. The new owners have done a great job of turning it around and will be celebrating their 5 year anniversary on Friday the 13th next week. Hopefully you can join us some time.

    MOTO Thursday is upon us once again. It looks like we will have nice weather and I will probably ride my vintage Vespa today. I plan to be there at 4pm and will stick around until about 7pm. Come on out and lets see if we can double our attendance for a second week in a row!

    Since we can't meet at Edison City, I went out to the woods today. It was perfect out and I picked up a few beers from the small businesses and breweries that were offering to go items on the way home. If anyone wants to join me next Thursday let me know. 20200319_111120.jpg

    Well, after everything got shut down last year things are starting to open up again. I spoke with the owners of Edison City Alehouse and we are a go for MOTO Thursday again. They have expanded the outdoor area and have limited seating indoors. I will be there this Thursday around 4pm and will plan on staying until about 7pm. Hopefully a few people show up.

    Sounds good, it's after 6pm now. Only a few people showed up, hopefully we will do better next week. I'll be leaving around 7pm. I hope your test ride went well.

    Awesome! I am at the Parkway now and did remember to say hello to Nick for you. He knew who I was talking about and was happy to hear that the pool cue is still being used.
