We are just 2 short days from the partial re-open of our Rogue Distillery & Public House in Portland, Ore. and since we last spoke, a lot has happened...
Because of a recent snowstorm in the city, our painters were delayed but are now almost finished. Luckily this hasn't held us back too much. In the last few weeks we've laid new floors in the dining area and bathrooms, installed framing for booths, brought in extra large sliding glass windows, oh ... and found a safe behind a wall in the women's restroom! (For the latest on the safe, like us on Facebook here.)
We have no idea what may be hidden in the safe but it'll remain uncovered as a feature of the women's restroom.
As mentioned in the last pub update, our pub team has been hard at work in our Portland pubs and our sales and marketing office. It's just about time for them to go back to their newly updated pub.
One of those hard-working employees is Maverick (aka Mav), our head cook and "Hasselhoff Playlist Coordinator."
Mav has been with Rogue since 2007 and is known to crank up David Hasselhoff's old school hits while managing a full kitchen.
We asked Mav if he has any advice for future Rogues. "If I have any advice for future Rogues, it would be to relax and have fun," he tells us.
