Let it be known … I am a fan of McMenamins! Is there anything they can’t do with excellence? Brew beer, bottle wine, distill spirits, weddings venue, music venue, soaking pools, pool halls, and tots …. lots of tasty tots. To top it off they cover everything (well not the tots) with whimsical paintings. While staying at the Grand Lodge for a friends wedding I grabbed a complimentary amenity, the trusty hotel notepad and pen, and drafted a couple of friends. Enjoy (and check out one of the many McMenamins next time you are in the NW)!
