Tacoma Strong: Monday, April 20 2020

2 Beers, 5 Love Locals, and 3 Things To Do

It’s Monday, which means Peaks and Pints is closed for one day for rest and family time. We’ll will re-open tomorrow, Tuesday, April 21, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for to-go sales from our 13-door craft cooler, growler fills, take-out food and a special to-go beer flight. In addition, we’d like to give a few more shout-outs to awesome people offering help and relief during the self-quarantining and sheltering in place. Be well everyone!

??????? ??????? ??????? ????????? ?: ??? “????” ????! Run some distance, chug something odd. Beer? La Croix? Sprite? Milk? and report back here with the proof.⁣ ⁣ I think we all learned something this week – namely that it’s been a minute since any of us were called upon to chug something. But top marks for sportsmanship! This week’s photos are mostly screenshots from videos, so I’m just posting a few – but check out the VR Run Club highlight on my profile for all the fun.⁣ ⁣ Anyone can be a Virtual Victory Runner (or walker!). There are no rules, only guidelines:⁣ ⁣ 1. Anyone can join, and it doesn’t matter if you miss a week or two (or seven).⁣⁣ 2. I’ll drop a new challenge every Sunday. They will be weird. This is not a performance-based running club.⁣⁣ 3. Complete the challenge within the week and tag me and #virtualvictoryrunners with the photographic proof.⁣⁣ 4. Have fun!⁣⁣ ⁣ ???? ????’? ?????????: ???? ? ???? (??? ????/????? ???????). ??? ?? ? ??????’? ????? (?? ?????. ???? ???? (???? ? ??????????? ????????) ???? ??? ???? ????! Report back here with the photo/video proof.⁣ #runhappy #runnersofinstagram #runnersofinstagram #orcarunning #thesocialdistancerun
