Just got back from a weekend in Pendleton. My wife and I watched the Pendleton Grand Parade Saturday morning, had lunch at the Main Street diner, stopped by Prodigal Sons Brewpub and had their beer sampler. Ended up getting a growler of Double Dribble.
We checked into Wildhorse Casino & Resort and then had dinner at Stetsens. We spent the evening playing the slots and I now have a cash out ticket worth 3 cents!
This morning, after breakfast, we visited the Tamastslikt Cultural Institute where the Charles M Russell exhibit is being hosted. Afterwards, we came home but detoured through Standfield, Hermiston and Umatilla - Hermiston has really grown!
Just pointing out that there are many things to do within an hour or so drive from the Tri-Cities...
