I'm getting my Irish on this week.

I’m headed home on a dark and stormy Tuesday evening. It’s been a really long day and I’m totally starving! I still have a ton of stuff to do before the day is done. I’m thinking about stopping somewhere to get a bite to eat is a really good idea! I’ve been good about my diet lately and eating healthy with mostly greens, veggies, and rice and such, but I have to admit, I’ve been craving a big ol’ deluxe Burger and French Fries for a couple of weeks now!

So what’s that have to do with real estate? :O) Well, nothing... But, as Grandma used to say, “You need to eat Mon chou (my cabbage). You’re growing and you’ve got lots to do!” (I digress, I know, but I am enjoying a few random thoughts. Thank you universe!) So I swung by one of my favorite spots in Renton, the Whistle Stop Ale House.

The chef’s burger of the week (honoring St. Paddy) has a slice of corned beef and cabbage on top. I thought that sounded a little out there at first, but I went for it! I’m definitely getting my Irish on this week now so I ordered a Guinness to go with it. Sounds like a great pairing to me!

St Paddy Burger at the Whistle Stop Ale House.

I love local neighborhood spots like the Whistle Stop. I had a chat with Cef, the bartender, and a great convo with a guy at the bar who was in town for business. You’re likely to run into long time locals here, which I normally do, but not this evening.

The Whistle Stop is a locally owned family operation and I really enjoy coming here and for their special events. Back in March of 2015 a few of my musician friends played here. I still have fond memories of that evening.

I did a post about it back then: Danke Shoen... Live Music is Best!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day this Friday, March 17th! I think there's a little bit of Irish in all of our hearts, especially on St. Paddy's Day!

Grateful for another action packed day and so glad I decided on eating out. The St. Paddy Burger and Guinness were just what I needed and I did finish up my projects when I got home!

Rene- that looked great!  There is a bit of Irish in everyone this week.  We're probably going out for it later this week.  It's better than cooking it and having to eat it for leftovers!

That duo of St. Paddy burger with a Guinness sounds like a perfect marriage to me!

Rene, even being a veggie, that photo looks alluring! Love your random thoughts, thank you universe and Rene.St. Paddy's Day has crept up on me. Saw a guy in a kilt and derby at Costco the other day. A big, strapping guy...and he carried it off with aplomb. Nice to catch up with you!

Hi Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Realtor ... Thanks! Funny, we've got a guy in Renton like that. I run into him on occasion... He's always wearing a kilt, and boots, and waste coat. He's about 6' 2" and thick with red hair and a beard. Indeed, he too carries it off so authentically!

Hi Brian England ... I think Guiness is a food group all by itself! I like it because it's dry and a little on the bitter side, which I really like. I don't drink it too often, but do enjoy it when I do...

Hi Rene - That burger looks really good (I skipped lunch today ). I'm not a big St. Patrick's fan, since my birthday is the 18th, and everyone is always too hung over to party again. Plus a previous wife was the wrong kind of Irish and loved trolling the Pubs on St. Patrick's Day wearing her orange dress, which got my ass kicked good the last time I agreed to go with her. Sláinte!

Hi there, Rene. Came to see if you'd posted lately. I know you're not still in a pub celebrating St.Patrick's Day. :)  You must be enjoying teaching your social media courses and traveling around the country. At least I see your updates on FB.  D

Rene,
I just saw an article that you had written, including pictures, about Pete Delaurenti, my dad. You have described him to a "T". Thank you!
