Resolution Reboot at Eastside Community Center

It’s February 2nd and officially over a month since your New Years resolutions started. How ya holding up? Metro Parks would like to help with those fitness goals by hosting a free fitness and nutrition event. Try out a few classes, test the machines and taste some delightful recipes from the staff nutritionist. Local service providers will also have booths to provide help in staying fit and active. Kids are welcome, but register soon as there is limited space and child care.

Metro Parks Valentines Day 5K

Yeah, Yeah. I’m one of those people that enjoys running 5Ks over the holidays. But this course is spacious, flat, and runs right along Ruston Way with spectacular views of the Puget Sound. Burn off those Valentine’s Day chocolates before you even eat them! I’ll be sporting a pink tutu and some wild socks, come find me in the crowd!

The Tacoma Night Market has certainly taken the city by storm! Every third Saturday at Alma Mater, vendors, artists, and musicians come together to share their talents with our fair city. You’ll find an array of hand-crafted jewelry, homemade sweets for you and your pets, gear to sport your hometown love and a lot more. Enjoy a beer while you wander the booths, and see what these talented creators have to offer. Kids are welcome. We’ll see you (and probably half of Tacoma) there!

VA Homeloan Boot Camp at 7 Seas Brewing

One of the most nerve-wracking processes of home buying is acquiring a home loan. For our veteran clients, who are also often from out of state, this can be even more daunting. Come learn about the VA loan process in a casual environment while enjoying free food and drink. This one-hour course is set up to educate service members and veterans about this VA benefit and empower them to use the benefit to its fullest potential. After the cram session, decompress with a 7 Seas brew.

Fix-It Fair at Moore Library

The Tacoma Tool Library hosts its Fix-It Fairs at various locations around Tacoma to ensure accessibility for all. This month, you will find them at the Moore Library. At Fix it Fairs, you can bring one or two items—small enough to be easily carried by one person—and a “fixer” will walk you through as they fix your item. Fixers are skilled at repairing appliances, clothing, toys, electronics, and much more. Check out the site for more info and guidelines.
