Old Edison Inn (Edison, Washington)

The Old Edison Inn, 5829 Cain's Court, Edison, Washington USA about five minutes off the Interstate 5 to the west. It is about 5 minutes north of the Corner Pub. About 1900 the owner of this pub was John BRADLEY. This Saloon survived Prohibition (1917-1933) as a soda fountain, pool hall and card room. When the State ended the ban in 1934, it began licensing ""Saloons" as "Taverns" as the laws did not allow the use of the word "Saloon". This license #369258, now called the Old Edison Inn dates to 1934 and although moved twice over the years, is probably one of Skagit County's oldest thirst quenching business. It has not one but 2 full sized shuffleboards. How cool is that, I can hardly wait to kick my son and my brother's #%&!!! We didn't eat here but the food looked fabulous and I want to come back and try it. The cooks wore black chef jackets and looked very sharp. It was a busy weekend in Edison when we were there as it was the Oyster Run. A hugely popular motorcycle run. The two bars were full of motorcycle enthusiasts and thus the reason I did not take any pictures in the bar. Many of these gentlemen had colourful vests with the names of their riding group on their backs. They even had some one keeping an eye on their shiny bikes out side. Edison is a really neat town with an artisan bakery and an organic farm produce shop. I have to say it again you gotta try this place out.
