Happy Anniversary, Early

Dina and I celebrated our anniversary early this year. Yesterday afternoon we packed up the Subaru and headed north to McMinnville. We dropped Phil with some friends, then headed further north to Forest Grove.

McMenamins Grand Lodge is a renovated (and quirkified) Masonic & Eastern Star home, full of 1930s architectural touches and the funky fun of the McMenamin brothers (local brewers who have made a habit of preserving old properties as brewpub venues and, in many cases, lodging spaces). We took a pass on the movie of the night (The DaVinci Code) at the dine-in theater for Say Anything on the PowerBook, but before that had dinner (and after exploring the hotel some more, dessert) at the Ironworks restaurant inside the Grand Lodge.

This was our first overnight at one of the McMenamins sites. I suspect it won't be our last.
