My Buddy's Place

It's a landmark establishment in the heart of downtown Manson, Washington.  People from all walks of life frequent this place in this cute little town that sits literally a stones throw away from the shores of Lake Chelan.  My friends tease me that I talk about it so much but every time I go there I meet someone interesting and new, and what more can you ask for than that.

This is My Buddy's Place.

Three generations have owned this watering hole, and it is nothing fancy.  It has a shuffleboard table, a pool table, an outdoor patio where you can look at the stars.  Bellying up to the bar seems to be the most popular thing to do.

You can even get a Rainier or Olympia in a can.  Does it get any better than that?

Neon lights line the wall on one side of this place, my wife always turns off the Husky light, and there's no reason to explain why.  A juke box is probably the most popular piece of furniture at My Buddy's Place, classic rock'n roll and country are usually the music of choice.  Rap doesn't go over very well here, and I don't think it ever will.

My Buddy's Place is known for its great burgers, you know the kind where the juice runs down your arm after you take that first bite.  And their home made fries are second to none, especially with the special fry sauce.

Last night I met two young couples.  Two of them were Huskies, the other two are Cougs.  Despite their loyalties fun was had by all.  It's hard not to.
