#2661 - Powder Keg Bar and Grill, Tenino, WA - 11/23/2014

Update: The Powder Keg closed in late 2015 or early 2016, and was replaced by the Old Highway 99 Company.

The Powder Keg, Tenino, WA (closed)
The Powder Keg in opened in 1995 when Jules Grele purchased and renamed the J&M Mining Company bar on Old Highway 99 just north of Tenino. Grele had previously owned the 4th Ave Tav in Olympia, and he ran the Powder Keg until he passed away in early 2012. There's not a lot remarkable about the place from the inside. The food looks like fairly standard pub food -- burgers, steaks, salads, pasta, seafood, sandwiches -- and the beer choices are fairly good. So it's the other people there that will probably determine your bar experience here, and it's clearly popular with bikers which is usually a good sign. We were also here to watch the Seahawks game, and though there weren't a lot of people there, we enjoyed exuberant fans Yvonne and Dina, who were making a lot of noise from "the cheap seats" behind us -- including a lot of yelling back and forth between the two of them and the guy everybody here calls "Jimmy the Bastard." I'm sure it's rocking a lot more on a Friday or Saturday night, but it was also an enjoyable stop on this lazy Sunday afternoon.
