Lunch with the McNasty Brothers


Thanks to the post by Jim and Sandi, Barbara, Ron, Phil and I decided to go to the lunch show at the Mining Camp Restaurant in Apache Junction. It looked good from outside - lots of rusty stuff and located at the base of the Superstition Mountains.


We were greeted at the door by a friend of the McNasty Brothers who told us jokes while we waited in line.


The wall inside was covered with old pictures and newspaper articles. Ron had to read them all.


We were fairly warned...


While waiting for the show, we admired their lighting.


And after some more jokes, the show began. The McNasty Brothers did a "Hello Arizona" show with wonderful vocals and outstanding instrumentation. I really like the tub.



Everytime I hear "Orange Blossom Special," I have to tape it. (Click on the arrow to play it.)


After the show, we wandered through the gift shop. I bet my son would have liked this wine bottle holder.


Then we toured the back yard, where there was even more old buildings and rusty stuff!


And maybe a little false advertising?

And here I was wondering what happened to Barbara and Ron since there haven't been any posts on their blog for a long while. And what do I see when I open your post ... a picture of you and Barbara. :-)))

What an interesting place, love the sign. If I had a bottle holder like that I would have to consider giving up wine.

Nice pictures you have as always. The wine bottle holder could almost make me sick! Nightmare material there.
