I knew the building that houses Charlie Kempe's coffeehouse, Metro Coffee on the UWT campus, is undergoing some kind of surgery. I didn't know Charlie had surgery.
His friends are throwing a get-well benefit for Charlie. It happens Sunday at The Swiss, 3 p.m.-11 p.m. It's all ages. It's 7 bucks. There'll be music, snacks, prizes and a silent auction.
Metro Coffee: 1901 Jefferson Ave., Tacoma. The Swiss: 1904 Jefferson Ave., Tacoma.
