FUTURE THINGS ARE COMING >>>

Thanksgiving at my house is a futile exercise in restraint. Which calorie-laden delight should I gorge on first? At my house, we load up on the traditional bread stuffing spiked with country sausage, roast turkey and close to 20 bowels of fixin's. Yes, we're a gluttonous bunch, and then we add wine on top of all that. I imagine the excess and I feel fat just thinking about it. But excited, too - I love Thanksgiving. It's fabulous excuse to open a bottle after bottle of wine while discussing current events

And speaking of opening bottle after bottle of wine, Kris Blondin, owner of STINK - Cheese & Meat, will open STINK Tank - a new wine bar in the neighboring space once occupied by her kitchen store, Füdie.

Why STINK Tank?

"It's a play off of ‘think tank'," explains Blondin. "Where people can talk and engage each other. Basically change the world over a glass of wine."

Sounds like Thanksgiving.

Blondin says STINK Tank will focus more on unusual, less common wines such as Chenin Blanc, Pinotage and Grenache.

"I want people to come here and not be afraid to try new wines that are weird and hard to pronounce," she adds. "You can buy a glass of Zweigelt rather than commit to a whole bottle. I pride myself on finding wines that over-deliver for the price. We will have over 75 by the glass."

I'll let the 75 pours by the glass sink in.

STINK Tank ...

I can see you still need time with the 75 pours. ...

STINK Tank will also serve specialty beers such as Belgian brews, which were available at Füdie.

As you might expect, the menu will be heavy on cheese and meats.

STINK Tank opens tomorrow.

I, for one, give thanks.

STINK TANK, 4-10 p.m. TUESDAY-THURSDAY, 4 P.M. TO MIDNIGHT FRIDAY-SATURDAY, 630 SAINT HELENS AVE., TACOMA, 253.426.1347
