My first time in Portland and is seemed like a cool place, hipster central apparently but I didn’t really see too much in the brief time I was there. I don’t have any pics of the gig itself, which was really fun, but I did take some of the strange after show eatery that some local chums took me to, called The Roxy.
I love a good ole American diner. Makes me feel all Nighthawks. And there were a few nighthawks in there that night. Plenty of hipsters sure, some bikers, some goths and a table of Thai ladyboys who made eyes at us the whole time. The real highlight of the place has to be the jumbo Jimbo crucifix though.
There was a a lot of cool crap over the walls, including much Tarantino memorabilia. The ugly painting of him was especially nice.
I ordered one of the only things on the menu I could actually eat – which they listed as the ‘Vagitarian Omelette’. No typo. Guess they don’t take too kindly to veggies round here. I cut it open and there was a cube of pork inside. A multi-layered joke or pure accident, I lost my appetite. But heck, I’d still go back there – if it was the Dirty Porno Bingo night.
