I spent my day down in Tacoma and stopped in at the Pick-Quick Drive In on my way back to Seattle. I enjoyed a Deluxe Cheeseburger + one Chocolate Shake sans guilt for my good behavior in knocking off a personal task that I’ve been meaning to do for most of the 2000s.
This burger was recently rated tops in a USA Today poll and while it deserves high billing, I don’t know if it’s THE best. This reflects my own misgivings about saying something is the best of all time. It’s very very good. If heading north between Tacoma and Seattle and looking for a solid place to stop, you should absolutely go to their location in Fife.
In the evening, we had two things: 1) Sonja’s Bourbon Tasting and 2) Quality Time with Gastrognome. No pictures with the Gastrognome, but we do have some from Sonja’s fantastic Bourbon Tasting. Everyone brought a bourbon, wine or beer (no other competing spirits), so we had quite the variety. Fantastic evening — Sonja knows her way around the kitchen and party-planning.
