#2425 - Rainbow Cattle Co, Guerneville, CA - 3/1/2014
Rainbow Cattle Co, Guernville, CA
My cousin made fun of me (she is often cruel to me in this way) for being well into my drink and examination of the Rainbow Cattle Co. premises before opining that it may be a gay bar. But really, how was I to know? I was not informed of the cultural history I've now noted in the entry for McT's Bullpen. Of course there was the prominent rainbow on the sign and in the name. And there were the bear-ish patrons around and behind the bar. And there was the flyer for Musical Sundays. And the ones with people who looked like members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. And an unusual number of leather hats. And all the other rainbow pennants and flags. But really, what am I, psychic? Stupid cousin.

Anyway, the Cattle Co. seems like a pretty fun place, and I regret I wasn't there to see it on a busy Saturday night. The woody, rustic decor contains various western icons -- painted saws, steer skulls, etc. -- and is only better for multiple pieces being broken. They offer a fairly typical set of dive-bar style cocktails and craft beer selections, with a signature Long Island Ice Tea that comes in a 32oz Mason jar.
