Well, it’s official. Our Portland store has some new neighbors in the form of a cool little restaurant/bar called Dig A Pony, named after the Beatles song. The owners: Aaron, Paige and Jacob met with me several months ago about using our Hood lights to illuminate their bar, and they graciously agreed to blog for us on the Projects Blog about their remodel.
They had their Grand Opening in late July, and I stopped by hoping to snag some pictures of the new space. It was a good news/bad news sort of situation. The good news: the place was PACKED! I mean shoulder-to-shoulder people, packed. The bad news: try as I might, I was quite unsuccessful in capturing any photos worth sharing due to my slight stature and the presence of many people much taller than I. So I stayed for a bit and enjoyed the celebration, while formulating my plan to come back at a quieter hour to get the photos I missed.
While I was at our Salvage Secrets event, it occurred to me to stop by Dig A Pony for lunch with a colleague from Arciform (who also participated in yesterday’s event). I was so excited to see the place in daylight and sample their menu! When we arrived, we discovered that they don’t open until 4:00, but Aaron Hall, one of the owners, spotted us outside and invited us in for a behind-the-scenes look at the place. Perfect! Here are the pictures:
