Third Thursday Cruise-In
Dee Dahlke & Duncan Johnson
Historic Pick-Quick Drive-In
4306 Pacific Highway E., Fife, WA 98424
Thurs. August 17, 6:00 PM
Shine up your Miata and join us at the PSMC summer cruise-in to the original Pick-Quick, a classic roadside food stand from the gear-jamming days on the old US 99 Pacific Highway (http://pick-quick.com or Google the place and check the reviews.) Now totally surrounded by urban sprawl, it still features “slow food” like hamburgers, fries, and amazing milkshakes. Cash only! No alcohol. You order at the walk-up window, then eat at a picnic table under giant old trees (and birds, eeek!) There is no agenda or business or competition at a PSMC Cruise In. Just a group of cool cars and their humans getting together for fun.
Since this is a seasonal stand there are no public restrooms; you’ll have to take care of those duties at other nearby facilities. In the unlikely event of rain we’ll still meet at Pick-Quick at 6 PM, but we can then re-group at some other local establishment with an interior.
Directions for the GPS-challenged:
From I-5 in Fife, take Exit 136 (Port Of Tacoma Rd.) Go toward the port, then at the first traffic light beyond the freeway interchange turn right (east) on Pacific Highway northbound. Go 0.8 miles, and just past the Nissan dealer and the signal at Alexander Ave., Pick-Quick will be on your right.
RSVP is “nice,” but not “necessary,” just so we can plan how many picnic tables to jam together.
