I live near the Uptown Gig Harbor Mall on Point Fosdick, and the shopping there is fantastic! A few of my favorite places in Uptown are Bloom Boutique, Soma Intimates, the Loft, HomeGoods, and Marshalls. (You can browse ALL of the shops that are at the mall here.)
I also frequent the fabulous Studio Six for my personal beauty needs. Melanie is terrific with hair, and Carly does wonderful lashes. I highly recommend them both!
There’s no shortage of great restaurants at Uptown, either. Green House is a wonderful place to have a lovely dinner in a contemporary yet warm environment. They offer a special 3-course menu Sunday through Thursday until 5:30pm. Take a look at their menus here!
For something more casual, check out Fondi, Blazing Onion or Pandora Bread. Lele has wonderful Thai food!!! For the absolute BEST Texas BBQ EVER, stop into BBQ2U right across the street from the Uptown Mall. Gary Parker and his staff take great pride in their product, and serve up the mouth-watering brisket, chicken, pulled pork, and chili and cornbread with a smile! And Gary will happily tell you all you could ever want to know about Texas BBQ! I highly recommend both sitting down to eat or grabbing some to take home. (Don’t forget to pick up extra sauce!) You can take a look at the complete list of restaurants at Uptown Gig Harbor here so you can plan your trip accordingly.
The Galaxy Theater is right next door to all of this so you can easily have dinner and check out a movie. (Adults may even order an adult beverage!) During Snowmageddon last year, my husband and I walked up the street from our home to Uptown for a bite and a movie. It was so fun!
These are just a few of the reasons that I love where I live. Next, I’ll be writing about outdoor recreation in the area. Until then, be safe and enjoy your blessings!
