Anchors Away

15 Jul

Hey Hey everyone! Its Friday night woohoo! Its officially the weekend! and not just any weekend at that… its BEER TENT! The most celebrated and loved weekend in Goderich! So if you are looking for a place to have a few drinks and socialize, head to Goderich on the sqaure!

Alright, now that we know what we are all doing this weekend, we can discuss what I did this week. On Tuesday Jenna and I got together to have a meeting to talk about our plans for The Taste Of Huron. With all that talk about food in Huron County we started to get really hungry. We decided to road trip to Wingham and head to Anchors Pub for a bite to eat. Jenna had mentioned how whenever she is in Wingham she heads to Anchors so I wanted to try it out.

It was a really cute place, and the food was tasty! I had cajon whitefish with potato salad, and Jenna ordered a chicken burger with sweet potato fries and spicy mayo. Yummy!

The best part of this blog is that I feel like no matter where I go in Huron County, I know all the best places to go!
