Ride a bull without leaving the bar
Tacoma’s Steel Creek gives customers the opportunity to test their balance and endurance. And that’s not a bull. #k5evening #BadSports
TACOMA, Wash. – Bull riding has often been cited as the most dangerous eight seconds in sport. Steel Creek American Whiskey Co. in Tacoma is perhaps the most fun.
Saint Bryan of KING 5 Evening and our Bad Sports resident Jim Dever set out to conquer the country nightclub’s mechanical bull, led by veteran bull rider and bartender June Kaepimai.
“I’ve learned that if you do it in shorts, it’s a lot better,” Kaepimai said, adding helpfully, “We have scissors.”
The boys decide to leave their pants on. It makes for a slippery ride. Eight seconds? Maybe 8/10 seconds.
“It’s one of those sports that looks easier than it really is,” Saint said.
Thanks to the inflatable surface under the bull, nobody gets hurt. But two battered egos abandon their short-lived careers in the ring.
If you want to try mechanical bull riding, sample more than 120 whiskeys, or hear live music from up-and-coming country acts, visit Steel Creek at 1114 Broadway in Tacoma. Opens from Wednesday to Saturday at 17:00.
