MINING CAMP

IMG_4406 My sister and hubby are headed back to Montana next week and we wanted to do something with them. I found an advertisement for the McNasty Brothers at the Mining Camp Restaurant. They perform two shows during the day (11:00 and 2:00) and I thought it sounded like a fun time.

On Wednesday they drove out from Mesa and we headed up to the restaurant. They serve the food family style and it includes ribs, chicken and stuffing with gravy, ham with pineapple, baked beans, cole slaw, sourdough rolls and raisin bread and includes lemonade, iced tea or water. Cookies for dessert. Really tasty.

After we finished eating the McNasty Brothers’ band performed for us. They tell really goofy, groaner kind of jokes that had everybody laughing. But when they played, WOW. The guy on the violin was really fantastic. And the banjo/mandolin player was amazing. And they could also sing. We will definitely be going back to hear them again.

  2. It all sounds so good! We bought a pineapple yesterday. It will soon be a cut up pineapple! Maybe a grilled pineapple.

  4. Terry's folks took us there when the kids were little and we'd vacation in Arizona. Since then we've made a few visits. It's definitely a fun and different place to share a meal.

  6. Sounds like a fun place to go! Suzy would be in trouble there, though, with her limited capacity for food. She's doing great, even while we go out to dinner. But that menu would be scary to come anywhere near! Glad you guys had a good time. Happy Easter!
