Trivia Gold: Gift Cards at E-9

We are fortunate to live within easy distance of many great Tacoma restaurants on 6th Ave: (from East to West) Dirty Oscar’s Annex, Gateway to India, Shakabrah, Medi’s, Marrow, Asado, Masa, Primo Grill, El Guadalajara, & The Red Hot. And, of course, Engine House No. 9 (or “E9” as it’s commonly known).

E9 is a restaurant and brewpub that is built into an historic firehouse, one that is so old that it used to house a horse-drawn fire engine. In fact, the interior of the restaurant still has the stalls where the horses were kept, with the horses’ names still affixed to each stall. E9 also has an excellent trivia night every Wednesday. There are several rounds, and the winner of each round gets a gift card that can be used at E9, Masa, or Asado.

Well, for the past long, long while a small group of pals have been gathering at E9 (almost) every Wednesday evening to partake of the trivia night. And (almost) every trivia night we have won a gift card in one of the rounds. Carrie & I didn’t go very often in 2013 because of a for-reals pregnancy and then a wee beb. But we’ve gone a few times since the beb was borned. And last week we decided that we didn’t want to cook, and we didn’t want to pay for food. So it was time to cash in some of those gift cards. So we small group of pals gathered and out came all of the gift cards we’d collected over the many, many weeks of victories. It was pretty spectacular:

Pick a gift card, any gift card…

Pick a gift card, any gift card…

Needless to say we ate for free that night. And needless to say we will be back, because the food there is really, really good!

Will we be going to E9 again tonight for trivia? Who knows? We’re playing it all by ear right now, depending on how we and the wee beb all feel. But maybe we’ll see you there sometime soon…
