No they weren't but they were almost $20 for Toivo's Rueben that you liked & that was almost 2 years ago.   :doah: So I just figured they'd be more expensive now, with a drink & a tip $25+. :crazy: Oh wait, the Union was buyin then too.  :evil:    ;) :laugh: :laugh: I agree on Sammy's, we've ate there a couple times this year. We tried the China Buffet last trip too but all they had was takeout yet then. So................................how long before she wants to know when your leavin again, 1 week or you gonna be good. :scratch: :rolleyes:

Oh yea back home, and wax home 45 minutes and she already asked when I was going back up  :confused: :pouty: training-087 :banghead: :banghead: :taz: :taz:

We stopped twice @ Grand Buffet between 3/11 & 4/14 for lunch & there was a sheet of plywood covering their entrance with a window cut out of it. They were taking & handing out takeout orders through the window & that was it. So there was no dine in at noon then, evening maybe.  :confused: The only way I'm ordering a $25 Rueben is if your buying!! :shocked:       ;) :rolleyes: :laugh: We can get a nice steak or even prime rib for that down home. :crazy:

Yeah, I think the new owners started that when they took over as we heard of it when we came up after New Years. Sounds like it's been a big draw for them.

:happy1: I might have to check it out sometime. :sleazy:

When I went to grand rapids Sunday, I went up 38, Richie's looks pretty quiet yet??? That place used to be popular, especially during snowmobile season.

Was in there a few times, never that time of year though. They used to be busy around Memorial Day & the 4th of July too. Live music, volleyball/softball tourney's.

Not sure from your posts if you know, but Ritchies hasnít been open for quite a few years. I heard it was sold a while ago, but donít know the story on whether it was going to reopen or not. Probably not a hard decision in the last year and a half.

I was out of a computer for a while, I crashed it. Got it back up and running. Your right about Richie's being a hotspot during snowmobile season. On weekends there would be 50 plus machines there at times. I knew the owner and all the bartenders there very well. It was sad to see it close. The last I was told is that the new owner is using it for storage. To open it would have to get new septic, electrical, plumbing, roof and a lot of other building repairs. Times change but there is always Hayslips yet plus the T-wolf so I will survive.    :happy1:

Been home since a little after 2, the Grand Buffet was open for dine in at noon today. They must be starting to open some of the government campgrounds too :scratch: as the 1 along the Mississippi by the dam just west of GR had 6 trailers in it when we came home today. That place must be really popular as it looks full almost every time we go by from May 'til the end of October. :crazy:

No!! :mooning: Just because it's dine in at night doesn't mean it's the same at noon.  :rolleyes: :doah: Again :pouty:, we were there on the 14th of April & there was no dine in at noon!  :tut: They told you they opened back up on 4/1, was it strictly carryout then or was it dine in at night then too? :confused:

Yea I am seen the signs going up and going home. It was supposed to start the day I came home but I went through before they closed the road.

Couldn't quite figure out the detour route though. :scratch:

Last time I was in Ritchie was probably seven years ago or so when we were spending some time on Little Bowstring. Bunch of drinkturds in there that day. Turned out I knew a couple of them indirectly. The warden wasn't too impressed. :-)

Seen 'em putting a lift on the north side of their dock last night about 6. Sure looks like they are out another 20' or so from last season to me. :scratch: No change for us, yet. Lake is down a bit since I raised our dock just before we went home but we've had no rain to speak of, that I know of, since early April.  :pouty:
