Bars where Pete has had a drink

#1794 - The Igloo, Wenatchee, WA - 5/26/2012

This is a place we stopped in strictly because of the name and sign (first spotted with Google street view). There were some friendly regulars there, including Maureen who first started coming in 1963. It's also nice when the bartenders actually know how old the place is, and bartender Frannie knew it to the exact day (St. Patrick's day, March 17, 1944).

Outside of the sign -- and an igloo-shaped cap inside -- it's a fairly typical neighborhood dive, with a predominantly older crowd who all know each other (to the point where Trista caused a bit of a stir when she first walked in). But the friendly welcome makes it a nice stop for strangers too.
