I tagged along with Monkeyshines early this morning as they help kick off Chinese New Year in Tacoma. More than two hundred blown glass balls are now strewn about town in celebration of the Year of the Rat. I rode along with one group out of eight or so that crept around Tacoma with a box or two each of the balls. Below are some pics but the hunt is on 'cause they don't give up any of the locations. Next week after everyone's had a fair chance to scour the city I'll post some photos that are my favs but that definitely spoil the scavenging fun. Now just where would a rat hide such pretty little things...?
Happy hunting! If you find a ball, keep it (that's the point -- they're a gift to you, Tacoma) and email me a photo or two of you with your find and where you found it. It would be great to share with the anonymous creators of such a wonderful project the joy it brings to people in Tacoma. I'll post a gallery of your shots in a week or two.
