Tactical Retreat - Skull Valley Cafe, Arizona

Mural by Prescott artist J.D. Davis
You almost have to put your nose up to this whimsical painting to find all the little hidden things going on.  To get a closer look at the Skull Valley Cafe read more here.

You are right. That mural is great. Very Beautiful indeed and the cafe has some creative ideas with the railroad theme. I used to have a train set I used to play with all of the time.

Fascinating to see the before and after photos of the cafe. The artwork and trains really liven the place up. Kind of reminds me of a place we used to have around here called Hidden Valley Inn.

Looks like a fun little place to eat. Bernie has always wanted to install a little train that carried snacks and drinks from the kitchen to the living roon. Glad you enjoyed the good eats!

Do you have room for a stowaway aboard your dream maker? I'm old, don't eat much, strong sphinter so not too many pee calls, can change a tyre and navigate.

My, your lunch sounded tasty! I have never seen items like that on a menu around here, but I do make my own baked sweet potato fries.

I love an artist with a sense of humor.

What a cool place. It just exudes Arizona and the wild west.

Hey GeoGypsy! GREAT MURALS; and GREAT MURALIST! The Artist J.D. Davis himself is also a work of art: a tall single slender Saddle-Bronc ridin', Team-ropin' cowboy with a Handle-Bar Mustache and black Stetson Hat. His murals abound in Prescott, AZ, along Whiskey Row such as at Matt's Saloon or Coyote Joe's. He even has Paintings here in Americus, Georgia, at my local watering hole, Pat's Place.

Howdy! I just might be that stranger... Been in Preskit a long time now since I was knee- high to a Lynx. Found this page on the internet; amazin' since I have yet learned myself how to use such a mild contraption. Been to Pat' s Place. Met the man whom wrote the last comment. Not much to look at; but he sure throws a mean game of shoe ( plus he' s kin ), though he won' t claim as such... If ever in Preskit, there will be more artwork of downtown Peswkit durin' the 1880' s above Coyote Joe' s on Whiskey Row come this Fourth of Joooooly.
