I called Max Messmer to ask him to fax me the food menu for his new nightclub, The Factory, which opened a couple of weeks ago in Brickyard Bar & Grill's old building at 56th and Washington in South Tacoma. (Brickyard has re-opened in Lakewood; look for a review in Friday's GO section.)
"Absolutely not true," Messmer said. "I've also heard it's Bill Gates' sister."
Would that be older sis Kristanne or younger sis Libby Gates?
Actually, it's no Seattle rich man's sister, Messmer said. He said his only partner in The Factory is Jason Matzat.
