RED BLUFF, Calif. - The Whiskey Kitchen in Red Bluff has been around for over 40 years.
Roberta Kinder works at Whiskey Kitchen. She said not having the rodeo in 2020 was bad for business.
"It was a devastation for the restaurant,” Kinder said. “It was COVID, and everything was a devastation."
Now, Kinder said she can't wait for it to return.
"I'm excited to see this place filled up with happy faces and just people happy to see that we are open and we are here to serve the community," Kinder said.
Having the Round-Up this year will bring a much-needed boost for Kinder's business.
"The economics of course we all look forward to that,” Kinder said. “You know there are times in a slow town where we get pretty slow, so we really look forward to the economics of this."
Customers are happy to see that their favorite local restaurant will be receiving some extra love this year.
"I am glad that the rodeo is coming into town and any other activities that are opening up is great for the economy,” Red Bluff resident, Denie Forbs said.
The Red Bluff Chamber of Commerce said every year, the city brings in $7 million due to the Round-Up.
Kinder said the restaurant is expecting to be completely full during the weekend of the rodeo and is already taking reservations.
The Red Bluff Round-Up will take place from April 16 through April 18. To purchase tickets click here.
