Guess Who’s Back

Hello again. Did you miss me? Because I missed you! If you haven’t heard by now, I am coming back to [ the pub ], baby!! It may not be as often as it was before, and that’s because I still have my full time job with the Ellensburg Downtown Association. So you can probably… Read more »

On Allowing Minors at [The Pub]

tl:dr Minors will be allowed in [the pub] starting just in time for Labor Day. When we introduced food to [the pub] last year, we had to make some necessary changes to our policy,  namely, unwelcoming dogs and keeping outside food, well, outside.  While some of you shared concerns, most of you indicated that you… Read more »

You Graduated from College, Now What?

*Originally written by Taylor Castillo who quit On Saturday, June 10 I walked across a stage and accepted my Bachelors Degree in Public Relations. This sounds like a major accomplishment and one of the most exciting time in one’s life, and it is. But it’s also one of the scariest transitions to make. For the last 18 of the 22… Read more »

A Rant About Thievery

We have been running out of glassware non-stop for the last couple of weeks and I clearly wasn’t thinking it could be anyone stealing it, until a customer asked me “ is it ok if I take this glass with me?” My response was sure it’s $4.00 or 4 for $12! I informed the guy… Read more »

Trivia Makeover 2017

Hey there. I’m Alex. Most of you reading this probably don’t know me. Hopefully some of you do. I’ve been hosting Iron Horse Trivia in Ellensburg for about half a year now. I’ve done, at least, a fair enough job to not get fired. Seeing the ebb and flow of the different sessions, one thing’s… Read more »

Shout out to the Homies

Here at the pub we get plenty of customers that come in for various reasons, number one being our fairly decent beer. As a server, I hate giving bad news to customers. I never want to be the bad guy. However, if you walk in here with your baby and try to sit down for… Read more »

Good People at [ the pub ]

There are good people. Everywhere. I have found that [ the pub ] tends to draw in some of the kindest, most generous, most understanding people I have ever met. I have seen our regulars and staff pull together to support each other when hardship strikes more than a couple times in the six months… Read more »

Gaming the System because Jared is Sloppy

I love collegers. I really do. They are generally enthusiastic, resourceful, and dedicated to living for ideals, rather than the sometimes cruel reality that life tends to hand you. But I made a mistake confusing resourcefulness with exploitive opportunism. In June of 2014, (2.5 years ago) we decided to run a print advertisement in CWU’s… Read more »

The String Cheese Bandit

String cheese is a bit of a problem at Iron Horse. It wasn’t too long ago that Nicole, who handles events for us, had a string cheese go missing from the break room. I can’t say that I know exactly how she discovered who was responsible, but suffice it to say, she did her due… Read more »

Put Your Phone Down

Let me first say this… I’m 21, almost 22 years old. Yes, I know what a landline is. And yes, I remember dial up internet.  LOL, and yes you are so funny for assuming I’ll never understand the struggles you went through. I hear so many stories that begin with, “Well back in my day…”… Read more »

Love Mug Club

The greatest feature of [ the pub ] is not having televisions. This is our way of forcing awkward yet satisfying social situations between strangers. As a server, I observe many dynamics of people. My favorite interactions are the ones that lead to a freshly brewed relationship (pun intended). These relationships, whether romantic, friendly, or… Read more »
