I was driving around this evening looking for an interesting place when the Star Lite Swap Meet appeared in all its glory! Located at 8327 S. Tacoma Way, in Lakewood The drive in opened in 1948 and it was the second drive in to open in Tacoma. It closed in 1996. It now functions as a swap meet.

Auto Lube and Espresso

On Thursday, I stopped for an oil change at Auto Lube and Espresso at 1202 S 38th St, Tacoma, WA 98418.   The Auto Lube always take about 10 minutes and they always do a good job.  While waiting I went over to the onsite coffee kiosk for an iced tea.  They serve coffee from the locally based (Sumner) Dillanos Coffee Roasters.
