Some City Colors

Just down from the Portland Museum of Art, you'll find one of the more intriguing eateries in the city: The Dogfish Cafe. We went there last Friday evening, after viewing American Moderns: Masterworks on Paper from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. I had the California Turkey Club: Marinated turkey tenderloin, sliced avocado, apple-smoked bacon, green leaf lettuce, vine-ripe tomatoes and herb mayo on grilled ciabatta. Quite delicious! Funny! Outside the restaurant, this pole to the left is loaded stickers from the museum. Kind of colorful, if you ask me.

  2. The splash of blue from the Dogfish sign goes well with the colorful stickers. Reminds me of something I would've seen in my college town -- except the colorful stickers would've been advertising a band or club not the local museum.

  3. Never could bring ourselves to go into the Dogfish...I think it might have been the name that put us off. Now I'm regretting that decision. I love the 'art' made by the discarded museum passes.

  4. I like the colorful pole, but the turkey club sounds better!

  6. Wow that's quite an eclectic post - everything from modern art to sticky notes to the ingredients of your Turkey sandwich. I like it!

  7. Yoko Ono had an art installation in Pasadena last summer, or the summer before that. Trees in a park square held hundreds, maybe thousands, of wish tags. My wish -- it/they were still there. I loved reading the wishes.

  8. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be
    running off the screen in Ie. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought
    I'd post to let you know. The style and design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos
