Here’s the history – if you like that sort of thing.
The legend of the Blue Moose started many years ago in the neighborly confines of Prairie Village, Kansas. Stories of this tall, darkish blue beast with huge antlers quickly spread throughout the local community. Grandparents told their grandchildren tales of the elusive and mysterious Blue Moose, most claiming to have personally seen him off in the distance on a cold and foggy night. Of course, when speaking of legend, one can never be too sure of what separates fact from fiction. Some say he still walks his original beat, sticking to the shadows. Others claim that he joined a band of gypsies and roams the land, to this day. Recently though, evidence of a third, more probable, outcome has emerged. As the story goes, a group of friends gave a ride to a tall blue hitchhiker from Kansas City who claimed he was, “headed west.” After consuming a few of his beloved spirits, he left the caravan for some munchies at the first gas stop and never returned. Since then, tales of a kind, but somewhat tipsy, moose doing good deeds have become part of Topeka folklore. Whenever something good happens in the community, it is now customary to look to the ground for the slightest evidence of hoof prints. It is because of his good nature that we honor Big Blue by naming our place after him. We are proud to continue his legend through the good will, good times and good eats shared inside the Blue Moose Bar & Grill. Maybe one evening, after dining from our delicious menu, you’ll glance out the window and swear that you, too, saw a tall, blue character with large antlers in the distance, smiling back at you. It’s the kind of story you might share with your grandchildren one day.
