Happy 133rd Birthday Tacoma!
What can be said of Tacoma in its 133rd year. Surely, this one is dramatically different from the first, and even the last. In a year of constructions, art, chalk offs and politics, it’s clear that Tacoma is evolving for the better. The Melon is honored to be a part of that wonderful change, and proud to walk the (under construction) city streets.
Our friends over at Speak Your Soul have been working on a Tacoma Tribute poem which they’ve released today in honor of Tacoma. Featuring portions from over 50 local poets (including yours truly), Zach Street has put together a remarkable and vivid piece capturing the romance of the city of destiny. Be sure to check out the piece and spread the Tacoma love on this momentous birthday.
Happy birthday Tacoma!
