McMenamins Mill Creek, Washington Pub and soccer

Sher and I had a wonderful Friday evening out with our daughter, son-in-law and of course our 8 year old grandson. The evening started out with his first soccer game of the season at the local YMCA. What fun, especially since his team won their opener by a score of 5 to 2.

Afterwards we went to a very nice pub, McMenamins Mill Creek. This is what it is, from their website: “McMenamins has been a neighborhood gathering spot throughout Oregon and Washington since 1983. We handcraft our own beer, wine, cider, spirits and coffee. We offer an eclectic mix of pubs, historic hotels, movie theaters, concert venues, spas, events, onsite shopping and just pure fun—join in!”

Well stocked bar

Our grandson wanted a dish of ice cream, Sher wanted a seasonal/fall apple drink, the kids had favorite brews they liked, and I was as yet undecided. Oh, those pretzels were delicious.

Sher enjoyed her seasonal libation, Autumn Apple

Two orders of the warm pretzels and hot cheese

I took a large drink of RC as soon as the glass hit the table!

Well, once we got seated I learned that this pub had Royal Crown Cola on tap. Yes, on tap! RC Cola is my absolute favorite soft drink, and to find it on tap was just an extra treat. Our waiter brought me a refill as soon as he saw my glass was getting empty.

Fun decor over our booth

We had a wonderful time on an evening of watching our grandson playing soccer followed by a relaxing time in the pub enjoying pretzels, ice cream and drinks with family. It doesn’t get any better.
