Belated Bloody Mary blog, wrapping up our three day tour. (Part 3)
This final one (for this tour, not for good, not by a long shot) finds us in Portland, OR at The Hawthorne Theater. A grungy, divey music venue with an epic stage and walls plastered with band posters and the sweat and grime of the theaters many past concert goers. Only ten-fifteen of which came out for our show. But truly, let me say thank you again to those who did come out and stick around! Y’all make it worthwhile! The show was a spastic romp demonstrating our freedom to go completely balls to the wall on our last night before heading home, as well as the reckless abandon of playing for a small group of people, half of which you know.
On the bloody mary front, it was somewhere between a letdown and a highlight. We stopped in at Nick’s Famous Coney Island Food, beckoned in by the flashy sign above, its design hinting at a grittier atmosphere than delivered. Though there was a juke box, there was only the sound of the two TVs blaring through the space. The bloody marys arrived with two olives, nothing else, but they were the spiciest ones yet, always a plus. They were good enough to consider getting another one, but not quite good enough to follow through. The burgers, on the other hand, were pretty delicious, bacon and all.
