Dave Poynter, the artist who sketched this view of our front counter has a website full of his sketches and photography! His work is like taking a tour of the Columbia Basin with an artist’s glasses on. Coffee shops, wineries and lots of local scenery. A beautiful way to explore the area.

The Post Super Bowl Loss Depression

Posted on

hawks lose their minds

My office was quiet for most of the morning today, just one non-fan who rambled on about how we weren’t robbed we gave it away. Psssshhhhhhhhhh. Just be quiet, dude, and let us wallow in silence…we aren’t ready to talk about it. We’ve been on a Hawks high for a couple of years now…this loss was a big pop to our winner bubble. Our entire identity has been shaken…we are the CHAMPIONS…not the losers! Now what? For a new fan like myself…I didn’t get interested in football until the Seahawks started kicking a$$ and taking names later…its been devastating. I couldn’t help but get caught up in the #gohawks contagion. I’m not used to losing…I’ve only known wins (two glorious seasons of being the big bad team to beat)…I know, I know, stop whining. I guess what I’m trying to say is chins up Hawks fans…we’re still in this together and we still love our boys. We can’t stop the crazy infectious universal good vibes that have built over the last couple of years…we’ve come this far so why not next year? Maybe we didn’t make #1 this year but #2 ain’t so bad either. GO HAWKS!

We Love People Who Love to Eat!

Posted on Updated on

people who love food

Our devotees are people who love to eat. There is nothing we love more than oo-ing and ah-ing with our friends over their fave dish at Magills. I was at a work meeting the other day (yes I have a day job) and someone brought up that I was an owner at Magills. The conversation instantly led, as it normally does, to everyone’s latest meal at the restaurant “Oh my God, you HAVE to try the omelet with tater tots, Cougar Gold cheese sauce and BACON!”, “The mac and cheese! Its AMAZING!”

I’m not tooting my own horn here (toot, toot), really, what I’m trying to say is that this is what a restaurateur lives for…these people who love food. Trust me, it isn’t the fat paycheck or the glorious rock star lifestyle. We live to please people, to create dishes that people love, to get the rave review about how good a dish is. Our hearts and souls go into these businesses, these culinary concoctions, and it warms our cockles when they are appreciated…so THANK YOU! Thank you for loving Magills.

7 Reasons Why Friends Who Love To Eat Are The Best Type Of Friends

There is nothing better than having a friend who loves to eat as much as you do…

Thought Catalog

A friend who appreciates food as much as you do is the best friend of all. They know that feasting is always a good idea and that happiness indeed comes in a basket of cheese fries. They also get that the time and place for food is actually any time and any place. Bad day? Let’s eat. Great day? Let’s eat! Annoyed? Let’s freaking eat. These friends make for the best friends, and here’s why:

1. They understand when you’re hungry, and they don’t take it personally.

You shouldn’t apologize for what you said when you were hungry, and they don’t make you. They respect your need for food, and instead of getting pissed at you for being hungry as hell, they’re either ordering from the nearest take-out place or driving you to wherever you want to go.

2. They will never judge you…
