Ok, let's see... you had the chicken, you had a steak, you had fish, and.... I'm sorry to say your entree was intercepted by table 27.

I hope he finds someone good to manage the place because these things usually end up in failure.

He's a good dude, I wish him success!

What's even worse is that the waiters will walk to within one yard of your table with your order and then pass it to someone on the other side of the dining room.

Yet another reason for a downtown Portland weekend getaway? Sounds good to me.

Very timely.  Why just last night I was bemoaning to the Mrs. that our neighborhood really lacked a decent Spam, poi, and Jello Shot purveyor.

I'm probably missing something obvious, but why Portland?

I mean, nothing against Portland with its bridges and breweries, but why not Seattle, Oakland/Berkeley, or even Las Vegas (at each of which he has retail store locations and likely more popularity)?

Obviously the best initial chance of success for the restaurant is his name being attached.

/The only Portland connection I'm aware of is when he ran for 112 rushing yards and a touchdown in a 42-16 victory over Portland State.

Marshawn Lynch has always been one of the guys who is very good with his finances. It's unlikely that he'll end up bankrupt.

I think he seems like a cool person and he's very interesting. But these  fawning articles that put him out there as having this amazing financial acumen are weird. Who knows if this is accurate but Forbes says his NFL salary earnings alone is around 59 million dollars. And they cite his net worth is 35 million in 2021. If he's really only worth 35 million on a gross of 59 million PLUS endorsements.... Well. That's just not super impressive. Is it? I mean I think the guy is not at all an idiot. But given the market conditions and the length of time he's been in it ( real estate OR equities) he doesn't seem to have generated an exceptional return if that net worth is accurate. Very cool that he's not likely to join those who lost it all.

Oddly enough one of the hot spots in Oregon was this rural place outside of Silver Lake (about an hour from LaPine... which is something like 45 minutes from the middle of Bend...) called Cowboy Dinner Tree.

Now it's damn near $50 per person. Farking hell.
