Before we get down to business I want to say a few things. First, thanks for reading and I hope you stay tuned throughout the month and into the new year. Please like and share on Facebook and if you have something to say, by all means say it. I love hearing from you guys and I know that my opinion is just that, so I want to hear your comments whether you agree with me or not (be civil, please).
My goal is to add to the list each day from now until Christmas but I’m a human and I’m making no promises. I’ll do my best though and I hope we have some fun along the way. With that…
1. Rodeo City BBQ earns the honor of being the first victim of my Naughty list. I know it’s an Ellensburg institution but does anyone actually think their food is not terrible? Their BBQ sauce is some of the stickiest and most saccharine garbage I’ve ever tasted and the meat is just… not good. Whenever I pass this place and see people going inside I want to yell “don’t do it” out my car window but I usually mumble it to myself instead and quietly pity those unfortunate diners.
1. Starlight Lounge is a fixture in downtown Ellensburg and will likely be a fixture on my Nice list as well. Good cocktails, nice appetizers that are half-price during happy hour, hearty entrees, and a pleasant and historical setting. It’s not the best I’ve had but, as you know, my reviews are about more than the food and drinks (so long as they are at least pretty good). I’m a fan of the Starlight and not just because it reminds me of the neighborhood bar we frequented in Seattle (I miss you, Jules Maes Saloon). Stay nice, Starlight.
