DIVE BAR SERIES: Greasewood Flat

Details

Hello all,

Put on your shit-kickers and let's go a two-steppin' at Greasewood Flat (http://greasewoodflat.net (http://greasewoodflat.net/))

(I decided to do dinner here at Greasewood Flat instead of combined with the horseback riding because it seemed like it would have been just too expensive to do both combined at the ranch...$91 before taxes & included 15% gratuity. Also, I've been wanting to take everyone here and it is just a couple miles from the ranch where we'll be riding).

Greasewood Flat is one of my all time favorite places to go. It is part dive bar, outdoor dance hall, museum, junk yard, and ranch...all surrounded by million-dollar McMansions and multimillion-dollar five-star resorts. This is one of the most unique places I have ever been and I always take out-of-town guests here to show them how unusual and quirky AZ can be.

They have excellent burgers. I imagine that they have other good food there too, but I can't attest to that...the only thing I ever get there is the Green Chili Bacon Cheeseburger (que Tim Allen grunts: argh argh argh). A few years ago they were featured on Alton Brown's "America's Best" (http://bloggingoodfood.com/2010/05/12/food-network-at-greasewood-flat/) on The Food Network.

They have an outdoor dance floor lit by a very interesting Western style chandelier and surrounded by fire pits made out of steal drums, a live band playing country music, and horseshoe ?lanes?/?courts? for those who want to toss horseshoes. It should be cool enough that fires will be burning in the pits.

FYI, They have very strict bouncers there. I don't know if we will have anyone under age joining us there. If so, it may be impossible to get you in...unless we fib and say one of the older attendees (me) is your parent...even then, they'll watch you like a hawk. There is a story about my father and brother getting kicked out.

Hope to see you all there.

PS. Yagiz, we will go again when you are in town...or we could go before you leave. Let me know...I'm always game for Greasewood Flat
