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!
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!
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!
It was really good, Kathy! Satisfied my burger cravings for quite a while! But, hmmmm... left me thinking about a real Irish dinner though. :O)
