  • Senada Miljevic

    Today we hear from another of our artists, Senada Miljevic, who's original piece for the Art House at Old St. Francis School is shown here. At first glance, it may seem a little darker than McMenamins' usual style, but her artist's statement casts bright light onto these faceless children. Read More

    Who is Bernadette Bascom? Students' music teacher and vocal coach, gospel/R&B singer, Vegas stage performer, Emmy Award winner, pal to Stevie Wonder.... Read More

  • The Starchild Skull

    How often does one get to write about a possibly extraterrestrial skull in one's job? I will tell you: not that often. So here we go... At this year's 18th Annual McMenamins UFO Festival (May 18-21, 2017) at Hotel Oregon, we are pleased to host guest speaker Melanie Young, a former neonatal nurse and co-founder of the volunteer organization called the Starchild Project.

  • About the Draaiorgel het Blauw Frontje

    Just one of the fun aspects of gathering McMenamins history is when it comes from out of the blue. We recently received an email from a guest at the Kennedy School inquiring about our Draaiorgel het Blauw Frontje. (Great name for a beer, right?) Have a look... Read More

  • A Moment with Springsteen

    Back in October, fresh off his booksigning at Powell's, Bruce Springsteen stopped by the Tavern & Pool for lunch with his buddy Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club and other works. Sounds like the start of a Portlandia skit, but it actually happened. And one of our T&P regulars, Catherine Graham, was there not just to capture the moment, but in some ways to bring things full circle. Read More

  • The Other Bob at the GL

    You may have been to Bob's Bar at the Grand Lodge, named for Mike and Brian's dad. And now we have added another Bob into the mix - you can never have too many Bobs. Below is the original artwork by Jonathan Case, accompanied by the excerpt from the freshly minted Nobel Prize-winner Bob Dylan's book Chronicles, now the name of one of the new guest rooms created as part of the renovation of the bui...

  • Let It Snow

    Snow and ice are once again forecasted for the greater Portland and Willamette Valley regions later this week. Thanks to all our staff who kept our pubs, hotels, theaters and music venues open during last week's storm - it would be interesting to see how tater tot sales ratcheted up those couple days that schools were closed. (And a special thanks to our staff in Bend, who are probably thinking, "...

  • Coaster Mania

    There is a new round of coasters out, and here we are to give you a little background on each, before they are set on the tables only to get soggy, stained, shredded, drawn on or collected by the coaster hoarders. Artist Lyle Hehn designs our coasters, using his own artwork or that of one of his fellow McMenamins artists. Their explanations or inspirtations for the pieces are provided below. Cheer...

  • An Ode to the Great One

    Every summer around the late Jerry Garcia's birthday, McMenamins celebrates his legacy by throwing a free-wheeling party. It's a wonderful day in tribute to a man who inspired legions of fans with his music. And at Edgefield, we honor Jerry year-round with a 7-foot-tall bronze sculpture in his likeness, a piece that draws his longtime admirers, curious hotel guests and others into its quiet, tree-...

  • In Good Company

    As you may well know, the newly opened Art House at Old St. Francis School celebrates the work of the artists who have lent their talents to our properties, making them come alive with color and history. Here is another of the original murals and accompanying artist's statement, this one from longtime McMenamins collaborator Kolieha Bush. Read More

  • The Mother of Female Suffrage in the Northwest

    This Election Day, while we wait to see the results from the ballot boxes, we should remember one of the most well-known sibling rivalries of Pacific Northwest politics. Abigail Scott Duniway and her brother, Harvey W. Scott, who went head to head over women's suffrage in Oregon in the early 20th century. Both of the Scotts have McMenamins hotel rooms named for them - Abigail Scott Duniway at Hote...

  • Talking with The Freaks!

    Its quite safe to say that The Freak Mountain Ramblers are an institution in the McMenamins music community. Going into their 12th year as a Great Northwest Music tour regular, not once but twice per season, we wanted to chat with The Freak Mountain Ramblers about how this relationship came to be, and to rehash some great memories they've made with us over the years.

  • The Burkhardts & The Floral Past of NW 23rd & Glisan

    Last Wednesday, 10/19/16, was a strange, unnerving and destructive day in Northwest Portland. A natural gas explosion caused extensive damage, but fortunately (and amazingly) no lives were lost. Credit for that goes to the quick, thorough action of first responders, who evacuated everyone from multiple buildings at the intersection of NW 23rd Ave. & Glisan St. The Rams Head, of course, is just at ...

  • Hail, Mary!

    For more than a decade, Mary Topogna had a shop on NE Killingsworth in Portland called Hail Mary. It was a local institution in the neighborhood. A 2011 article in Portland Monthly said: With her mosaics, Tapogna makes magic of the discarded bits of everyday items that the rest of us would toss in the trash. For instance, broken plates and cups, like the pieces I sweep up in my kitchen periodicall...

    Edgefield Winery's 2015 Poor Farm Pinot Gris is soon to be released, and this year, the label features this work by Lyle Hehn, called Match in the Attic, which is installed at Anderson School in Bothell.
