Here is a tiny bit of our history.

It's been a great 5 years in Tacoma. Vast improvements have happened to our area since we have opened.

The Big construction project on Pacific Ave is over. The Rain gardens and lighting Downtown has created a great neighborhood

We completed our first 5 year lease and negotiated another 5 years in our current location with one stipulation.

We had to get a new Air Conditioning system. After a year of planning and over 3 months of construction, it was finally ready.

The new HVAC system has made Dorky's a very pleasant experience in the Summer.

Another benefit is the air quality has improved greatly now with the proper ventilation.

It was a huge undertaking but was defiantly worth it. It has lead to countless other improvements.

We built a new Bar, new games like the Star wars Battlepod, KISS pinball and Jurassic Park,

Improved Seating area, updated DJ booth w/Killer new sound system and more.

We still have a lot of improvements planned, the biggest being the awning and sign replacement outside.
