Tacoma Art Museum: Art and Wine

TAM logoTacoma Art Museum in downtown Tacoma (1701 Pacific Avenue, Tacoma, WA 98402) started pouring the 2014 Locus Semillon and the 2014 Locus Rosé at the TAM Cafe. In case you are not familiar with the museum: It was founded in 1935 and has since grown to become a national model for regional, mid-sized museums. It collects and exhibits Northwest art, with the mission of connecting people through art. The museum’s permanent collection includes Dale Chihuly’s glass artwork.

Its current location was opened on May 3, 2003 – a $22-million Antoine Predock-designed structure. In designing the building, Predock drew inspiration from the region’s light, its relationship to the water, the neighborhood’s industrial history and character, Mount Rainier, the Thea Foss Waterway, and the surrounding structures in what is now known as the Museum District. A new addition was completed in November 2014 (an additional $15.5-million building project), adding 16,000 square feet to the museum.

Marrow + Locus

We have not kept up with mentioning all the locations that carry Locus Wines lately, so we thought it is never too late to restart.

This time, we introduce Marrow Kitchen Bar in downtown Tacoma, on 6th Avenue. The menu is simultaneously classical, eclectic and eccentric. That’s almost impossible to pull. Any menu that can pull off tater tots few inches away from foie gras is OK by me (I am an aspiring chef currently in training myself).

We have to admit that their cocktails are amazing as their food and wine list. You can visit Marrow’s website to check it or follow them on Twitter.
