Dig A Pony

My friends, Aaron Hall, Page Finlay and Jacob Carey are opening a bar here in Portland. It’s called Dig A Pony, inspired by a Beatles song.

With it scheduled to open in 2 weeks time, they are working hard to get it ready in time, stripping the floor, fitting the bar, installing the kitchen. The list is endless. I have been managing their daily blog and facebook, and generally helping out in a manner that doesn’t involve heavy lifting or use of machinery. I even painted a wall in the kitchen the other day!

I’m very excited by the what’s taking shape down there. They’re going for a nice blend of old and new, and planning on serving fantastic food, and having DJ’s playing records every night of the week. I’m looking forward to organising a few events when it opens and maybe even starting a darts team.

I’ve been hanging around a lot over the last 4 weeks, observing and taking photos. Here’s some of my shots…

To support Dig A Pony you can read their blog, become a fan on facebook, and follow them on Twitter @digaponypdx, if you’re into that kind of thing. Or just go get a drink if you’re ever in Portland. I’ll see you there.
