The historic Edgewood-Nyhold Windmill, located at 2284 Meridian Avenue, Edgewood, was constructed in 1902. It was moved from its original location at Jovita Blvd and Meridian (SR-161) on August 24, 1980. At its original location of Nyhold Farms it provided water for his crops and his neighbors crops. Edgewood is one of Pierce County’s smaller cities with a population of under 10,000.
I was driving down Meridian in the South Hill area of Puyallup when I decided to turn around. My turn ended up being the entrance to the Paul Bunyan Rifle and Sportsman’s Club at 17902 Meridian East, Puyallup, WA. The club was founded in 1945 and the land purchased from Weyerhauser Timber Company in 1946. There website is here.
Until today, I hadn’t realized this six theater Regal Cinema existed. The Regal South Hill Cinema 6 is located at 3500 South Meridian, Puyallup, WA. More importantly it is located in the back of the mall, behind Target, so it is easy to miss. It was the only theater playing The Impossible, a striking movie about a family of five’s experience during the 2004 Thailand Tsunami.
I don’t especially enjoy the South Hill area of Puyallup, but there I was looking for a place to grab dinner before an appointment. That area of town has block after block of chain restaurants and we were leaning towards Ivars when I spotted My Greek and Italian Restaurant at 13333 Meridian Avenue East in a small strip center. I had the steak salad with blue cheese crumbled on top and it was very good. Dear daughter had a shrimp dish which she enjoyed. Service was fast and friendly. I’d really like to go back and try the flaming cheese and hear the live music. I loved that in the sea of chain restaurant My Greek and Italian Restaurant is family owned.
Update: I went by today (7/31/2012) and the space was empty. Their website says that they are moving to Sunrise Village as of September 2012.
