There is a place, actually a couple places, in Rock River, Wyo., I have wanted to stop in at for a long time.
This is saying something because if you've ever driven through Rock River you know it's a place you generally just drive through. It's a tiny town. But there is a bar and a little hot dog stand called Wienies 'n Things that I have been dying to go to.
I am completely drawn to these kinds of places. I love the local dive bars and diners with their...local color.
My coworker Matt and I first came across Wienies 'n Things on a work trip over the summer, but we didn't have time to go in.
I wasn't going to let that opportunity pass me by today as Linds and I drove back from Casper, Wyo.
The wienie joint...
They sell t-shirts that look very much like this. If they didn't have the owners' names on it I would TOTALLY have bought one...
Linds and I agreed these plates hanging on the wall were pretty darn cute...
Neither of us were very hungry so we just got an order of fries each. We were the only ones in there and, who I'm guessing must have been Shawn, one of the owners, had to fire up the fryer just for us. We kind of felt bad about him having to do that for our measly little order, but we couldn't leave there empty handed!
And because I have a love of all animated foods I made Linds take a picture of me with this. Poor girl had to tromp through about an inch of snow to do it too!
