#2011 - Dockside Saloon, Portland, OR - 1/19/2013
The Dockside is a blue collar restaurant across the street from an industrial area on the banks of the Willamette River. It's been around sine 1986 but there's been a restaurant in the building for 90 years or so. It's more of a diner than a bar (it closed at 3pm on Saturdays), but the woody interior, hodge-podge of wall decorations, and the friendly staff make it a pleasant place to grab an early cocktail.
The Dockside's brush with fame came courtesy of Tonya Harding, when they inspected several bags of trash someone had thrown in their dumpster and found various bits of evidence connecting to the clubbing of Nancy Kerrigan (including Nancy's practice schedule in Tonya's handwriting).
