Beat blast: Noah Turns 40, A bizarre bicycle recovery & a tunnel-bound parade

Around 100 Philly Cheese Steaks are consumed each and everyday at Noah’s Ark. And now that the restaurant has turned 40, some simple arithmetic is all you need to determine they’ve made the popular sandwich more than a million times.

You’ll learn more about Noah’s Ark’s 40th birthday and a whole lot more on this week’s Bremerton Beat Blast, including:

The coincidental reappearance of a bicycle found in the same place it was stolen two years later;

The first event at the Roxy Theater since it came under new ownership;

Why the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade goes through the Bremerton ferry tunnel;

The sale of one of Bremerton’s largest apartment complexes.

Oh, and don’t forget to sign up for our latest Story Walk Saturday at the Illahee Preserve!

Other news and notes this week around Bremerton:


Work continued Tuesday on the new dock at Evergreen-Rotary Park with some paving.


A project is underway that is installing seismic cutoff valves to the city’s water system where it crosses the Port Washington Narrows. Work at the Warren Avenue Bridge has been completed; work is going on at the Manette Bridge now.


And finally, I had to snap a photo of the non-fruiting pear trees blooming on Fourth Street Tuesday. Remember all the controversy about them from a few years back?
