AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Michael and Jonathan Standefer opened Sad Monkey Mercantile in November 2022 as a place for people to hang out before you head to Palo Duro Canyon, or after coming back from a long day of hiking.

The idea started as a distillery, but morphed into a bit of a restaurant, hangout spot, camping goods store, and even a venue for weddings and concerts.

On this edition The 806, we head out to Canyon to check it out.
