With a delectable smorgasbord of scooter events available in August, the Firkins will be here to pick up the slack for those that want to bask in the exquisite beauty of the south end. Our local haunt, the Parkway Tavern, will be host to our kickoff meet and greet with nary a scrumptious Beveridge for your taste bud pleasures. Thereafter, we will explore the wonders of urban north Tacoma as we tear up the tarmac on our way to a local venue for music and/or late-night merrymaking. Throw some gastronomic delights at your tummy Saturday morning to soak up any lingering toxins before we embark on our intrepid journey scurrying around the backroads of the enigmatic Key Peninsula. After terrorizing the locals in Port Orchard, we’ll mince our way over to Gig Harbor where there will be camping for those that desire and a surfeit of evening entertainment to choose from. It wouldn’t be a TTF weekend without the obligatory Beans on Toast breakfast Sunday before we glide across the bridge via Wollochet.
