Aaahhh, Gig Harbor…
Ooohhh, Tides Tavern…
Dear reader, for my review, I’m going to get cheesy by using a popular 1970s song whose lyrics I freely revised as an ode to my love for seafood. If you don’t know how the Theme from Love Story goes, play the video, listen, and then read “A Seafood Love Story” below. If you want to sing along, start at 0:32. Humor me.
A Seafood Love Story
Where do I begin,
to tell the story of how great seafood can be?
The tasty food story that is older than the sea.
The simple truth about what fish and chips brings to me.
Where do I start?
With my first big bite
It gave a meaning to this empty world of mine
There’d never be another love, another time
Seafood came into my life and made the living fine
It fills my heart
It fills my heart with very special things
With angels’ songs, with wild imaginings
It fills my soul with so much love
That anywhere I go, I’m never lonely
With calamari along, who could be lonely?
I reach for a tentacle, it’s always there
How long does it last?
Can love be measured by the hours in a day?
I have no answers now, but this much I can say
I know I’ll need it till the stars all burn away
And it’ll be there, it’ll be there
(So long as we support seafood sustainability)
And that’s the end of my Tides Tavern review. Let’s just say that their seafood dishes are so outstanding that I sang home about it. To the Seattlelites and Eastsiders out there, make the drive… it’s worth it.
