Thai food is one of my favorites, and I often have lunch meetings at Gig Harbor’s Lele restaurant for both the food and the ambiance. Now Lele has something new to entice you even more for dinner on the weekends – live music every Friday and Saturday.
Last weekend my husband and I enjoyed dinner at Lele. We had two of our favorite dishes – Spring Rolls and Chicken Larp – as well as two new dishes we have never tried – Saigon Crepe and Malaysian Noodles.
As usual, the food was wonderful, authentic and service piping hot. Lele has a nice selection of wines and beers and an expanding selection of cocktails. The soft lighting combined with the warm color pallet is also lovely for a nice dinner any night of the week.
Lele popped over to chat with us while we were enjoying our dinner and she shared with me that Phad Thai continues to be the best selling item on the menu, and she is looking at adding more vegan items to the menu and some new lunch specials. The kitchen is open until 11pm most nights and they offer take-out and catering as well as their party room is available for special events.Read more → Comments (0)
Join the conversation on February 8th
Ready or not, there will be a toll increase on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. How much is the question. Thanks to our State legislative leadership and to the good citizens of the greater Gig Harbor area who voiced their opinion two years ago, we dodged the bullet in 2010. But a planned toll increase has been in the cards since the bridge opened (and long before) despite the difficulties we are all facing with the current economy.
It’s time to mark your calendars for a very important upcoming meeting on February 8th when the Tacoma Narrows Bridge Citizen Advisory Committee will hear public comment regarding a proposal to likely raise the toll on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge to as high as $5, regardless if you have a Good to Go pass or not.
This meeting and open house on the 8th is not a time to harass or belittle state employees, our elected officials or the Citizens Advisory Committee. Rather it is a time for us to come together once again as a community to learn, dialogue and be problem solvers with our leaders.Read more → Comments (6)

About now, we start to feel it. Despite the past week's weather, you begin to notice the days are a tiny bit longer. Is that a crocus peeking up in my yard? Could it be possible that winter will end and we will, once again, bask in Gig Harbor's glory of summer.
Yes. I assure you it will happen. So here is a little good news to throw into your daily water cooler conversations that lately have only been about snow, ice and traffic.
Summer Sounds at Skansie and CinemaGig Outdoors are ready and waiting for the moment to arrive. This year, with the help of sponsors St. Anthony Hospital and CenturyLink, the City of Gig Harbor celebrates the Tenth Anniversary of Summer Sounds at Skansie with the most outstanding line up yet. Ten concerts will be perfromed each Tuesday, celebrating the best of the past ten years with a couple of surprises through in. See the list here.Read more → Comments (0)
It's been several weeks since I wrote a blog. Between Christmas, New Years and this wild and crazy weather I have surely been neglectful of my blogging duties!!
Today however I have been truly inspired by an inspirational topic - CHOCOLATE. I can't think of anything right now that would be as healing as a chocolate celebration after what we have been through this past week! Even if you have been really doing good with your New Year's Resolution to work out and eat well - a little chocolate (and maybe some wine with that) might be just the ticket to give us all the boost we need to make it through the rest of the winter.
So, I don't know if that is a convincing enough argument (for me it doesn't take much convincing beyond the words chocolate and wine) but you should consider coming out on February 4th to celebrate THE ART OF CHOCOLATE in historic downtown Gig Harbor.
Last year's event happened to fall on the most glorious and sunny winter day - so let's shoot for that again. But either way, THE ART OF CHOCOLATE is a wonderful event to eat chocolate, enjoy the Gig Harbor Art Walk, shop at our downtown merchants, pickup a gift for your valentine, have some wine, a latte and lunch and just be reminded of what is so awesome about Gig Harbor.
So from 10am - 6pm, Saturday February 4th through out the historic downtown it's time to welcome February - the month of love - and love you some chocolate at the third annual Art of Chocolate in downtown Gig Harbor. See you there!Read more → Comments (0)
