Eric Stone Tastes Tempranillo, Cheese & Fine Cigars On This Musician’s Road Trip Adventure
I would record the entire episode with my Canon 80D and my FauxPro (fake GoPro). I usually do these episodes with my iPhone because its always with me and convenient but it was time to experiment.
I found out real quick that riding a bike with one hand and carrying heavy camera and tripod with the other hand was not the best idea I ever had. I made it without a scratch, anyway.
I wanted to do a little piece about Bistro 45. The former owner Kit Worthington and my wife Kim Hess started the place 18 years ago. Kim actually wrote the original business plan and menu which they still use to this day.
Kit recently sold the business to Eric Hovlan. Kit has had offers to sell many times but they all wanted to change it into something different and he didn’t want that. When Eric approached him and told him he wanted to keep it exactly the same and carry on the tradition, Kit agreed.
I met Eric and asked him a few questions about Bistro 45. He seems to genuinely love the place and is dead set on keeping up the tradition that Kit started in 2001. Both he and Kit always have great things to say about each other. It was the perfect match.
Eventually Eric plans to slowly add a few of his own touches to the place but he knows what works and he doesn’t plan to change much. He recently added homemade soup to the menu and it has become a very popular item.
Bistro 45 is first and foremost a wine bar. They serve an amazing amount of great food out of their tiny kitchen including steamed mussels, paninis, open faced sandwiches, salads, cheese plates and of course the aforementioned soups.
They have a bocce ball court in the courtyard and Jamie Cope plays piano every Sunday in the summer. Jamie has played there for more than 13 summers. Jamie taught himself piano and is very popular with locals and tourists alike. He also owns and operates Jamie’s Barber Shop.
After several glasses of Tempranillo, some cheese and a tasty cigar given to me by my friend John Burke, I headed back to my motorhome to chillax the rest of the day and begin editing today’s Tour Tale.
My Tour Tales is a regular blog post on the road from touring musician Eric Stone, who writes songs, sings and performs his music all over the world. He is currently in McCall, Idaho.
