#1517 - The Twilight Room, Portland OR - 7/17/2011

 The Twighlight Room is celebrating it's 50th anniversary this year, but that's only under the current management.  It is said to have been established in the late 40s and owner Doug Penner was a bartender here himself going back to 1949.  He and his twin brother purchased the bar in 1961, and over the following years expanded it four times, incorporating a former barbershop, refrigeration shop, and insurance business.

So it is now a pretty large place, and a comfortable neighborhood bar for both college students and local old timers.
