Sam and I have had the itch to party in Tacoma ever since our visit in May. And what better excuse than the inaugural YachtoberFest at historic Foss Waterway! It’s happening October 3-4, 2014 and when I talked to the organizers, they agreed to let me emcee the Friday night boaters cocktail party! Probably a mistake on their part, but I accepted. And, of course, Sam and I subscribe to the theory of “the more the merrier,” so we’re inviting everyone to join us in Tacoma on Friday night.
Go to www.YachtoberFest.com and book your moorage before it sells out! Moorage gets you into the boaters cocktail party, plus four tickets to YachtoberFest on Saturday. We will be there all weekend in Boat Guy I.
The YachtoberFest slogan is “Boats, Beers & Bratwurst” and, according to the “official” information:
“YachtoberFest is happening at historic Thea Foss Waterway esplanade, directly behind The Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA (October 3-4, 2014). Ticket discounts are available if purchased in advanced at Brown Paper Tickets.
YachtoberFest is a fundraising event designed to mingle the Northwest’s enthusiasm for boating and craft beer, featuring craft breweries, wineries, German food, and live entertainment. Proceeds from YachtoberFest benefit the Tacoma Waterfront Association, the Tacoma Youth Marine Foundation, and Citizens for a Healthy Bay. All three non-profit organizations work to promote and improve Tacoma’s waterfront.”
There you have it: Boats, Beers, and Bratwurst! October 3 and 4. What else is there to say? Oh, yeah… wieners!
