Birthday Boy Moskowitz Leads 4th Contingency to Fort Semcoe

Posted by greenlakenick on June 6, 2009

Bugler Bernie Moskowitz celebrated his 71st birthday today by leading a small group from the 4th over to the Fort Semcoe Veterans Day Re-enactment outside of Yakima. (Pics.) The event was small but fun for all. Of particular significance (to me, anyway) — the discovery of town ball, the period-correct precursor to modern day baseball. We played for a good two hours between battles. I think I’ve officially discovered a solid way to pass the ‘tween-battle times.

Bernie Moskowitz joined Bernie Bateman and host Bruce Frazier in beating back the rebs.

Also of particular significance — the discovery (again, for me anyway) of Miner’s, a Yakima burger joint. Some dude on UrbanSpoon.com called it “Yakima’s burger.” I’d go a step further and put it in the running for “Washington’s burger,” right up there with The Pumphouse‘s burger in Bellevue.

This place rocks.

Anyway, I digress. Fun trip, good folks, see you at Port Gamble.
