I am so proud to be the first to review this gem. Number One: If you live in NE Portland you have most likely driven by this little hut and seen the exterior, laden with dock buoys, reindeer, and far too many other quirky lawn ornaments to explain. You really need to see it with your own eyes. My hubbie works at the Kennedy School, and I worked in NE so I constantly drove by wondering about the exterior, and the Burrito Bus parked outside....I finally stopped in one day at the end of summer much to my delight. I was met by a fire cracker of a bartendress, god I wish I could remember her name, but she had the longest nails I have ever seen on a white lady. I later recognized her amidst the 1000's of pictures on the wall including one of the owner and Greg Oden, our cities famous trailblazer. She served me a $1 PBR from a deepfreeze right behind the bar, and explained the bar's built in security system on their beer cooler literally 5 feet away, but in the back where anyone can sneak in without the bartender noticing....unless she see's this long rod that shoots out with a feather faced mask attached shoot out over her head to the opposite side of the bar where patrons are on guard. It truly lives up to its name with all the knick knacks, and random vintage stickers and memorabilia...has video poker and if you don't feel like gambling, the Vietnam Vets and the dear bartender (whose name I can't remember) will gladly watch animal planet with you, as you all marvel at the latest cool pet invention, the pedi-paw. Great place for an arctic beer, an swapping stories!!!
