The Northern Cowboy


Our Concept

Everyone knows what a cowboy is.  It’s that rough and tough guy we see in old western movies, riding horses across the dry plains, eating beans from the can by a campfire, shaving his face with a cut-throat razor and drinking shots of whiskey. Even today, we all have a little bit of a cowboy in us; we just show it in different, more modern ways.  Instead of riding horses, we ride things with horsepower like motorcycles, snowmobiles and personal watercraft. Instead of eating beans from a can by the campfire, we eat Buffalo wings as hot as we can stand. Instead of shaving with a cut-throat razor, we use beard trimmers to look as cool as we can. Instead of spending the night drinking whiskey, we ask the bartender to make us their best Cosmopolitan.
