Things You Find in the Field: Another Oasis

The Oasis at Rye Patch.
A jukebox and "I Want Brew" sign in the corner.
A pool table across the room.
Pull up a chair?
It was a wintry day when MOH and I stopped by The Oasis sometime late last year. We sat at the bar, had a burger or some such, and an Alaskan Amber. I was surprised to find anything but the Bud, Bud Light, Coors, Coors Light, or (if you're lucky) MGD that are prevalent in small bars across Nevada—but good brews are becoming more popular in the outback and are, hence, more available.

The Oasis at Rye Patch is a cozy place, overall, with a nice sign out front (see this) and good pizza inside. I recommend the pizza from a dining experience or two back in 2004, when I was working in the area for a now defunct company that was running one of the nearby mines (the mine is still running).
