I finally got to eat at the Doug Fir in Portland. I've been seeing articles about it in all the travel magazines and have been curious about it. It features an interior with walls covered in Douglas fir logs.

They've taken the 70's-style breakfast theme restaurant and managed to make it ultra-hip. I had elk meat for dinner.

Of particular note was the stenciled mirrors in the bathroom. They were one-by-one foot with gold paint over the top. Most people wouldn't notice such detail but, they stuck out like a sore thumb to me because they were the same mirrors in the living room of my 1970's era double-wide mobile trailer we had in Hauser, Ore., in the 70's.

I found it ironic that the mirrors used as decor in double-wide are now used in the hippest bar in Portland.
