Caron Anderson and Randi Brown, the dynamic duo (and sisters…of course) opened Sisters’ Cider House in June of this year, and since then it has become a popular gathering spot for both adults who enjoy cider, and families and friends that enjoy getting together for fun games and great camaraderie. The main space can seat up to 66 people (not including their patio seating), and although they’ve never served food, they do provide snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.
Food Trucks Anyone? Caron and Randi have brought the food to you, working with several food truck vendors to share their craft. November vendors include Café Rendezvous, Battle Point BBQ, Salish Sea Greens, and Taco Barbon.
However, if you’d like to bring your own food, you’re always welcome and the location of the cider house is perfectly situated as there are several places nearby where you can order to-go food to bring with you. Bene Pizza is just steps away, and down the street a bit is Island Village, which houses Plate & Pint, Westside Pizza, Subway Sandwiches, Miguelitos, Pau’s Asian Kitchen, Safeway (deli) and across the street (on High School Road), you’ll find Jake’s Pick-Up.
Bored with board games, how about Trivia? Along with delicious food vendors, Sisters’ Cider House hosts several trivia nights, and Sip & Paint sponsored by Corks and Canvas, click here for details.
Of course, there’s always the bookshelf loaded with board and card games, two skee ball games, and the 1980s NES game console (in the spirit of the Nintendo NES, Caron replicated a “Trapper Keeper” binder for the game cartridge menu, which can be requested at the bar). You can also bring your own games, such as patrons like the Bunco church group and the group of Dungeons and Dragons players that frequently meet at the cider house.
