And the Winner is…

At the end of each buying event, we like to run a raffle for a few pretty amazing prizes. After the Pocatello Idaho event, Matte French draws names for a couple of prizes, including a set of 5 Don Pretchel Western Art Prints and a $125 Gift Certificate to the Yellowstone Restaurant.

Don Pretchel Western Art Prints

Don Pretchel is an American Postwar and Contemporary career painter and muralist born in 1936. With a love of history and a student of the settlement of the West and of the Civil War, he turns a sympathetic eye toward all participants. Inspirations come to him from the words and artifacts found in the historical records, from visiting historical sites and from fellowship with other history centric artists. As he researches historic events and places, he gains a greater knowledge regarding a specific scene. He also seeks out personal documents such as letters and diaries and sought for their insight into the experience of individuals. His paintings commonly reflect a very personal moment occurring within the context of a well-known historical event.

The Vanished American Series is limited to 500 copies that are numbered and signed. This series contains “The Plainsman”, “The Buffalo Hunter”, “Going to the Council Fire”, “The Cavalryman”, “The Early Explorers”, and “End of the Buffalo”.

Yellowstone Restaurant $125 Gift Certificate

Yellowstone Restaurant in Pocatello Idaho serves up Chef Daniel’s signature take on elevated comfort food and New American Cuisine, The Yellowstone Restaurant offers remarkable farm-to-table flavors, presentation and service, creating seasonally-inspired dishes and serving them in a casual dining atmosphere. In-house Pastry Chef Cristasha Reardon creates delectable desserts, pastries, and treats for all palates and dietary preferences and needs. Their menu contains gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options, as well as hearty meats and seafoods.

Where it all began.

The family at The Yellowstone was created quickly, as the three owners saw a need within our community to provide an elevated dining and lounge experience in Historic Old Town Pocatello. With the intention to augment the great restaurants already in place, The Yellowstone grew with the idea that this restaurant and lounge would be for the community, for their guests. They source our food locally as much as possible, provide a menu for all dietary preferences and needs, have a team of dedicated, creative, competent employees and intend to be the “restaurant of choice” for lunch and dinner not just for locals, but travelers, corporations, small businesses, our university and more.

From the breads and butters, to the soon-to-be-famous desserts (like our Buttercake), their food is lovingly crafted in-house.  You arr sure to be delighted and surprised by their food, service and ambiance.

They also house the only Whiskey Room, the 313, in SE Idaho, featuring a staggering array of 185 various bottles, and the Union Taproom, focused on craft beer with 26 taps in-house.

“Congratulations to Cora Hendricks, winner of the Don Pretchel Western Art Prints. And to Mary Thompson, winner of the $125 Yellowstone Restaurant Gift Certificate.”
