Tacoma Yelps at the Valentines Day List of the 5 Most Romantic Cities in America

In the picture you are looking at Mount Rainier, in the background and in the foreground you are looking at a restaurant on the waterfront of what the user-review website known as Yelp has scientifically determined, just in time for Valentines Day, is the Most Romantic City in America.

Tacoma, Washington.

Yelp based their determination of the Most Romantic City by looking at when a particular city's Yelpers began their Valentine's Day searching, which cities were most active in Valentine's Day type searching, which cities had the most Valentine's Day engagements and by looking at what the most popular businesses in a particular town are on Valentines Day.

And somehow Tacoma, the town that used to be known for its aroma, is now to be known as the Most Romantic City in America.

Yelp's Romantic City list consisted of the 5 Most Romantic Cites....

1. Tacoma, Washington
2. Los Angeles, California
3. Santa Cruz, California
4. New Haven, Connecticut
5. El Paso, Texas 

New Haven? Santa Cruz? El Paso? Tacoma?

Yelp has come up with one of the more goofy lists that I've seen in awhile.

The Case of the Missing Sedro-Woolley Gas Pump

A few days ago Betty Jo Bouvier woke to find her antique Chevron Gas Pump that had functioned as Yard Art for years was missing.

Someone in Sedro-Woolley is a rather brazen thief to heist something so big from someone's yard.

And due to the size of the Gas Pump it seems likely more than one thief did the Gas Pump heisting.

If anyone has seen a Chevron Gas Pump show up lately please email Bettty Jo Bouvier and tell her where you saw her Missing Gas Pump.

Thank you in advance for helping find the stolen Gas Pump
