That doesn't mean the economy was necessarily booming, and by the time we visited the Mill Creek Bar and Grill it was the only bar left in town. And it would close three weeks later.
New owners have remodeled and reopened it as "Blakeslee's Bar and Grill. We've not been since this happened, but I don't imagine it is that much changed, with the exception of eliminating the family-friendly restaurant section and making the entire place a bar (generally a welcome kind of change in my book). It's a fairly large place, with a sizable dance floor, karaoke, cover bands, bar food, Fireball shots and candy colored cocktails. It's not one of my favorite bars in the state, but every town needs a gathering place where local folks can dry out and unwind, and that has to be even more sharply felt when it's raining or snowing 212 days a year.
