What a beautiful week-end and how different from last winter! And even though there is little snow on the roads this year, there is snow at Anthony Lakes, which also had a good week-end with visitors from all over. There is a new Yurt at the top of the lift, which serves as a warming hut, with a nice deck, an outdoor barbecue, beer, and outstanding views in all directions. It really adds a nice touch to the mountain experience.
Be sure to take advantage of this week's Blue Plate Special, homemade Chicken Pot Pies. Since the individual pies are very popular and they take a lot of time, the slower month of January is perfect for the kitchen to make them. So come in and enjoy.
For music on Tuesday J D Kindle from Pendleton is playing in the bar. Kindle has played many times at Ten Depot, both solo and with his band, James Dean Kindle and the Eastern Oregon Playboys. He has enjoyed tremendous success playing venues from dive bars to coffee shops to rodeo arenas to medium security prisons. Kindle specializes in country, with forays into rock n roll.
Mrs. T and the Astronauts (formerly the Staci Collins Band) is playing on Thursday, January 18. Staci has an amazingly powerful voice and is a great entertainer. Staci's greatest influences are Adelle, Janis Joplin, Johnny Cash, and Patsy Cline. It's always a party with Staci. Both nights the music starts at 8:00.
The Ten Depot Ski Club meets at 8:00 in the bar on Wednesdays, with ski movies and dollar off pints. It is open to anyone who enjoys boarding or skiing. Last week 30 members attended.
