Corner Saloon

As the nation pauses today to remember the lives lost 13 years ago…

I’m reminded of how many times I have ask or answered the question, “Where were you on September 11?

The typical answer is geographical. Meaning, where you were physically attributes to your Sept. 11 comprehension or experience, of course, but try reflecting on where you were mentally and the emotions you felt in the aftermath.

On that awful day like most, I was angry and confused and to be candid some helplessness did seep in.

Thirteen years later my resolve has waned a bit and it’s getting harder to remember a time when we haven’t been at war or gearing up for “counter-insurgency.”  Sure there is ample room for debate on how and why America got to where it is today, but on this day I’m feeling sadness about the thousands of people who died on Sept. 11 and the thousands more since. I’m sad for the families who lost so much, and the Americans who have perished.

Yesterday the good folks at Paradise H-D and the Corner Saloon put their talented marketing minds together and along with a bunch of motorcycle enthusiasts we joined together at “Taco Wednesday” to remember the 9/11 anniversary and honor those who choose to serve our great country.

Thank you for your service!

It looks like Paradise HD and Corner Saloon put their talented marketing minds together and marked April 9th as the start of the Spring riding season.  Huh? 

Well I’ll have to take their word that it’s Spring.  The 10 day weather forecast states we’re in for a warming trend.  The high 50’s and rain — which is much improved over the snow/hail/rain this past week, but I’m not so sure it’s Taco Wednesday weather yet.  I would like to think so, but I’m not up for honing my wet riding skills for a $4 taco and Coor’s light!

And speaking of taco’s, I’ve needed to get this off my chest for awhile.  I’m not sure if the Saloon’s “chef” slow cooks his meats before they go into the shells, but if you are having a bad day in Portland, this is the food to induce a revival of all your lulled senses and you can take it out on your friends.   Eat a couple of these deep fried babies and you can bet your fat lard ass you’ll be rethinking bulk-rate crunchy shells, vat o’ mysteriously seasoned meat as the new alternative to extraordinarily cheap Tacos!  Is it just me or are those things total gut bombs?

Sure they have the giant picnic table setup for those folks who wish to savor the full taco-truck experience.  Let’s face it though…the Saloon tacos barely qualify as food!  I’ve tasted better on the outer skirts of Sandy or homespun vegan food carts downtown.

So if you’re not an eggplant passion fruit, cashews, and feisty sweet potatoes kind of guy there are lots of cheap, fast taco joints that’ll fill you up in a hurry without breaking the bank.  At the Corner Saloon — get the pizza.
