Craig men enjoy each other's company at morning gatherings

Head to the Coolwater Grille on weekday mornings and you’ll see a typical grouping of citizens of Craig strewn throughout the restaurant enjoying coffee, breakfast and company. Head into the café’s back room and you’ll see a more unique grouping, carrying on a tradition of friendship that goes back years and generations in Craig. A group of Craig men ranging anywhere from a few to as many as 10 gathers for coffee, tea and a good time. The clique of some of Craig’s (and Moffat County’s) long-living citizens get together and no topic is off limits.
