Bars where Pete has had a drink

#1750 - Ski Inn, Enumclaw, WA - 4/14/2012

 This is one of those small-town bars that looks like a tiny dive from the outside, but upon entering your find it is actually pretty large, with hints of a relatively happening weekend evening scene.  The back bar is almost 50' long and "at one time was the longest continuous bar west of the Mississippi."* It is said to have been established in 1916, although I am not sure it was under the same name, and I do not know how soon it resumed as a bar after prohibition.  But it's obviously been around in something like its current form for quite a while, and offers a fairly standard neighborhood bar, in its liquor and beer selection, pull tabs, and Budweiser paraphernalia.
