We were all glad to get to lunch for a rest stop!
Woody Creek Tavern was empty when we got
there but had a waiting list when we left...mainly
the place was full of cyclists....

Elise Barry and LaRand Thomas, otherwise known as my Wynne mother, both recommended Woody Creek Tavern to us because it was literally on the way to Aspen along the Rio Grande Trail about 5 miles from Basalt and only 9 or so to Aspen.  Jackie and I timed it that we would arrive early in the day so we wouldn't have to deal with the heat and length of the trail like we had the day before getting to Basalt.  So we arrived at 11:30 am, the place was empty but when we left 1 hour later, she was PACKED!  Anyway, we loved the service and the food.  Both of us had enchiladas and Chloe was in a bit of a low point but ordered the fish and chips.  We all loved the food and the way the waitresses "man" the waiting line for tables.  When Chloe and I made a trip to the ladies room, we saw some kids sitting at an 8 top table inside and a waitress "outted" them and told them to stand in line like everyone else.  The dad realized they'd been busted and waited outside very impatiently.  So our BBC (Birdeye Bicycling Club) advice is to get there early, plan on waiting and plan on a very, very good meal with great service.  And look for the house cat Bif while on the patio...
