Special thanks to the reader who gave me high marks for TheOtherToledo.com yesterday at the Post Office, for concise information "and ad-free" format. I enjoy the best readers in the world. 5 Stars.
Bonanza BBQ proprietors Christina & Daniel Gorton granted me a brief drive-by interview Tuesday, inviting me in to take a look around their beautifully updated location at 102 Kellogg Way in downtown Toledo.
The kitchen is spotless and uncluttered, new appliances and stainless steel work stations throughout, shiny floor and optimum lighting. New restroom adjacent to the kitchen is ADA-compliant, flooring in main hall easy-on-the-feet rubberized faux plank, door thresholds accessible to walkers and wheelchairs. A wine-centric cabinet offers stemware and more for your catered gathering, and the polished bar is topped with 2 long cedar planks, as is the smaller dessert side table (not pictured). Western-themed decor is deliberately spare, maintaining the open and airy feel of the hall.
Facilities will be available for large gatherings, anniversary celebrations, meetings and seminars, and bookings are already coming in.
“We were (negotiating for) a site in Toledo, and Paula Burrows, our realtor, kept contacting us about this one. We agree it’ll be ideal for our operation.” Mobile catering and on-site events will replace their original restaurant-style operation. Said Christina: Knowing how many people to serve is better than cooking for a crowd that doesn’t materialize, or planning for a dozen diners and 200 show up expecting service. It’s just smarter for everyone.”
Final paperwork is expected to be completed around the first week of November. Christina added: “Whether it’s a party of ten or a full house, give us a call.”
To answer your next question: they have a 5-star rating with 70 reviews on Facebook. Don your best bib & tucker.
Thanks to DiscoverLewisCounty for helping restore Toledo to the Mt St Helens Scenic Byway map with this post:
You've only got a few more weeks to make your way to Johnston Ridge Observatory at Mount St. Helens before it closes for the winter season! Johnston is the most popular tourist destination in the MSH area, and it offers interactive exhibits, a short film, ranger talks, and access to trails that take you closer to the volcano itself.
If coming from the north, take the route through Toledo. You'll be glad you did!

Last week’s update on Logan Grove’s heart condition triggered this post:
The Toledo High School Leadership Class is putting on this fundraiser in hopes to help out Logan!
Logan is a Class of 2018 student who learned last Spring he had a rare genetic heart disorder, and with persistence and prayers has responded favorably to treatment, though he will need surgery. More details on Facebook.
