Odds in your favor for fun on Poker Tour

When was the last time you played a tourist in your own city? For the past two years, I have had the best time doing just that by participating in the “Poker Tour” held in downtown Renton, in conjunction with our beloved Spring Festival sponsored by Piazza Renton. For those of you who haven’t been yet (shame on you!), the Spring Festival is a wonderful way to spend the day in the park, visiting vendors that provide handcrafted items such as jewelry, clothing and handmade goodies. The Spring Festival and Poker Tour are April 19 this year.
