McMenamins Passport – Cosmic Tripsters
On Saturday, February 21 2015, Dixon and I purchased our McMenamins Passport. The plan is to record our adventures through photos and blog posts. We’ve been having fun so far if a bit uneventful. We’ve accomplished 8 stamps in a quick succession of suburban pubs:
|Saturday 2/21/2015||Hillsdale||Pub + Beer Fest||Dinner after a birthday party|
|Friday 2/27/2015||Oregon City||Pub||Car shopping in Gladstone|
|Saturday 2/28/2015||Mall 2015||Pub + Pint of Cider||Saturday errands|
|Sunday 3/1/2015||On the Columbia||Pub||Post Silverstar Mountain hike|
|Tuesday 3/3/2015||Fulton||Pub + Limited Edition Tap||Dinner before a birthday party|
The idea all started last summer, when we stayed at the St. Francis School (Bend) in between fire lookouts (Drake Peak and Bald Mountain). Relaxing outside, on a lovely summer evening, warmed by a fire, we met some great people who enthusiastically sold us on the idea. They were two of the first to complete the passport and thought it had been a ton of fun. We should have purchased the passport then and there — between the hotel stay, the soak, the movie…we’d have gone through a bunch of stamps in one fell swoop. But this just means we get to go back. That pool / soaking tub is lovely.
