March 5th - First Saturday Sketch Outing....
The Swiss Restaurant & Pub
1904 Jefferson Ave, Tacoma, WA 98402
They will open their doors to us at 10 am with coffee and tea available until they officially open at 11 am. For best sketching and lighting they will have tables in the front of the pub set up for us. Once they open for food service, let’s support this sketcher-friendly venue by partaking of their good food while we sketch their unusual and unique interior.
The Swiss Restaurant & Pub is housed in an historical 1913 building in the midst of downtown museums, retail shops and the University of Washington, Tacoma Branch.
Come and see Dale Chihuly’s collection of Venetian glass that sits atop our bar while enjoying lunch and dinner every day. We have something for everyone: kids menus, pool tables, games, live music, dancing and artwork from local artists.

There is some street parking.
There is a UW pay parking lot just down the street on Jefferson.
Also, pay-to-park lots across Pacific Avenue at the Washington State History Museum and Tacoma Art Museum and also north of 17th Street at the Tacoma Convention Center. The walk will be up a steep hill.
Free parking can be had at Freighthouse Square. Then take the free Link Lightrail to the Union Station stop. Walk up the steep steps to The Swiss at the top of the hill.
