McMenamins Hotel Oregon

McMinnville is further away than I thought, but we eventually got there.IMG_5070

I was hungry, so we walked up (and up, and up, and up) to the Rooftop Bar, which was great!  And is probably simply marvelous in the summer.IMG_5072

After we ate, we walked around outside and Matt posed for a picture with the pointy thing.IMG_5073

We went looking for the answer to the clue, which was “Kiss Me I’m Irish”.  This woodcut was not the answer, but I thought it was incredible.IMG_5074

I took a picture of this one because it was the most Irish one I had come across.  It was not, however, the answer.IMG_5076

Hey look! It’s a room named after Oregon’s most famous Suffragette.IMG_5077

This was the answer to the clue.  Tough one.  I’m not sure if Matt found it on his own (I tend to dawdle when looking) but I heard someone point it out to someone else.  I’m not sure if I would have noticed it on my own.IMG_5078

My completed page.  The Rooftop Bar guy stamped my first stamp in the wrong place. And then the Pub guy stamped that square in the wrong place.  So it got all messed up.  Matt’s was fine, however.IMG_5085

Our prizes.  I opted for the two magnets.  (An $11.00 value).  Matt opted for a sleeve for his pint glass.  Then he wondered why.IMG_5086

On the way back to the car we encountered this duo, who were dancing to Beyonce’s “Put a Ring on It”.  They were fun to watch.2016-03-05

  1. I love a fun McMenamins outing. I have so enjoyed variously visiting with you and enjoying your passporting!

  2. That’s a woodcut? Wow! Super impressive.

    I’m sure you’re aware of my magnet love, but in particular I love the type of magnet that you picked up from Hotel Oregon. That would have been my choice as well!

    Any reason for the dancing? Just for the joy of it? I love that particular dance. It’s so fun.

    1. Hmmmm. I was not aware of your magnet love. I shall have to tuck that fact away. 🙂

      I’m not sure of the genesis of the dancing. It might have been a spur of the moment thing, or something that had been planned for months. I couldn’t quite get a handle on where the music was coming from. There were two other non-dancing friends who kept running back and forth across the street excitedly.
