When do you know you had a fun time with a great friend at the Pendleton Round-Up?
I was sitting at home on the last night of the Pendleton Round-Up when I got a call from Ryan, a long time friend and fellow Star Wars fan. As soon as I saw his number I knew I was headed downtown to check out the happenings on main street. I was a little tired, but I couldn’t pass this up. I wanted to explore main street and take pictures anyhow. Twenty minutes later Ryan picked me up and we were headed for a night filled with a lot of laughs and a lot of food. I wish all of you could meet Ryan, he is one of the funniest people I have ever known and would always be there if I needed help. Going anywhere with Ryan always ends the same way. When we say goodbye, I have the feeling like I had done 1,000 stomach crunches and my jaw hurts. Laughing to hard and eating too much. It’s always the same.
This wasn’t our first round-up, but this was one of the times we weren’t swinging from the chandeliers or pushing our way to the front of the bar in the crowded Rainbow Cafe. The rodeo is the main attraction of the round-up, but you always need something to do after the Let’er Buck Room has closed. Pendleton’s main street is the place to be. Ryan and I walked around downtown Pendleton taking in all the sights and sounds.
After the rodeo you always need a drink and a bite to eat!
You would be surprised to see how many people get on and ride .
Everything on Main street
Now for the Food!
Ryan is a home BBQ expert and helps put on the Buckaroo Barbeque Challenge for Cattle Barrons Weekend in May
Last year I had the horrible experience 😉 of judging all the delicious tri-tip and ribs during the Buckaroo Barbeque Challenge. Hopefully they ask me back 🙂
It’s dessert time!
I’ve eaten a lot of elephant ears in my day, but never knew how they were made.
Now you get to watch us eat
It tastes as good as it looks. I wish someone would invent Smell-a-Vision so you could use the most important sense when watching food on a TV or computer screen.
Jake’s Cakes is a new bakery on main street Pendleton Oregon.
I found their website
Check out Jake’s Cakes website and look at sample cakes in their photo book.
I had a great time and I hope you enjoyed reading my blog, looking at the pictures and watching the videos. Pendleton’s main street is only one part of the Pendleton Round-Up, but it can be the best part if you have a good friend to share it with.
Thanks Ryan and goodnight!
