A couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed canned Gordon beer. Last week, I toyed with the "Local" cocktail at The Mark in Olympia: a can of Olympia beer, a shot of Maker's Mark whiskey and an American Spirit cigarette in the patio by the Airstream. Yesterday, my colleague Ernest Jasmin reported the coming of Cans, a canned-beer joint, at 9th and A streets in downtown Tacoma. It's the old Taboo, done by the Varsity Grill guys. I'm gussying up the ring around my blue collar now.
