It's Happening Tonight: The Westside Tavern's Third Anniversary Bash

By Ron Swarner on January 24, 2015

The Westside Tavern is a West Olympia favorite hangout among college kids, bikers, working folks and people who enjoy good food. Winner of last year's Tournament of Burgers, voted on by the Weekly Volcano readers, the joint celebrates its third anniversary tonight. It went through some serious transformation during 2011. Gone is the tattered blue paint on the outside of the building, video games and greasy spoon bar food. The Westside now serves homemade upscale menu items, such as pork belly nachos, bacon jalapeno mac and cheese and award-winning burgers. Owners Dean and Lisa Damitio celebrate their third of being the coolest bar on the Westside by offering a live rockabilly set by The Echo Devils, plus food and drink specials.

WESTSIDE TAVERN, 9 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 24, 1815 Harrison Ave. NW, Olympia, 360.915.7839
