REMEMBERING BOB THE BIG BOY: And the Stolen Statue in Wenatchee
Recently a bunch of us at work were reminiscing about old beloved restaurants long gone in Wenatchee, Yakima and the Tri-Cities. I brought up one of my favorites as a kid in SoCal wondering if there ever was one in Central Washington. To my surprise, many had great memories of Bob the Big Boy in Wenatchee, that was located on North Wenatchee Ave…until the late 80’s. Some even remember the jingle on TV and radio. “At Bob’s Big Boy. We love good food just like you do.”

The days of national chain shops like The Warehouse, Licorice Pizza, and Tower Records are long gone.

The closest record shop we found was in Ellensburg. We’ll visit this one here in a bit as we go in search of some of the great record stores in Washington.
