I guess I should thank them as I Absolutely the worst customer service! They screwed up a delivery order and no one will take responsibility. They won't answer their telephones. Nice store but expensive. Have always had excellent food and service at this McMinimins! Especially love the fish and chips and their salads are sooo good!

Clearly, Team Williamson Team Black figured out the paddling the best as they easily won the opening race.
The teams each received feedback on their performance and made some final adjustments for a race double in length, or at least what was supposed to be a race across the river. Instead two of the boats collided and the course was adjusted to a shorter distance. Several players were laughing and joking afterward about the helpless feeling as they did what they could to avoid the collision; however, the steering was not controlled by any of the Winterhawks.
Team Williamson won the second race as well making them undefeated on the day. Many of the boats were trash talking and chirping each other as they went by. Our boat was fired up and we were giving it to everyone. It is just about getting the guys together and having a good time whether it is hard work or just relaxing. There was nothing relaxing about Friday morning.
Not only did the players complete fitness testing, walk two miles to the dragon boats and then paddle for 90 minutes, they then made the two-mile trek back to the Veterans Memorial Coliseum to play two minute games. Gricius said he was thinking about taking one of the shared public scooters. While exhausting, many of the Winterhawks felt the time was enjoyable out on the river.

In the Oregonian wrote of the passing of the old Chinatown. By there were only four Chinese owned busineses south of Burnside. Could the Golden Dragon be the last vestige of Old Chinatown? The restaurant is reached by stairs from a street level entrance like the dearly departed Hung Far Low. The decor is eclectic. Red and gold painted Chinese woodwork with white walls under dim florescent lighting. Plastic flowers border along a row of booths.
A giant gumball machine is near the cash register. A picture of puppies, a picture of kittens, a picture of a old sailing warship. Pictures of flowers, pictures of sunsets, pictures of beaches. Two clocks on the wall that look like they came from a 's detective movie.
There is a bar which may, or may not be still in use. The food however is impressive. A vast and ample buffet. Mar Far, Kung Pao and General Tso all make their expected appearances along with egg foo young, various vegetables and chow meins. Less expected entrees are offered as well, such as that Soong Dynasty favorite, the pot sticker, mushrooms in oyster sauce and steamed fish. I really liked the crab and cheese puffs. There was a sweet and sour cabbage, that was sort of like sour kraut, but not.
A "fritter" which was a kind of sugar donut without a hole. There was even macaroni salad. For the timid there are labels. Later in the week, a second visit revealed a thriving weeday lunch crowd. I asked the woman at the cash register how long the Golden Dragon had been there.
Eventually I did make it to the Oregon Historical Society. Sure enough, it was there in the same place back to An earlier location however can be traced to , two blocks south at SW Alder with a Lee Wing listed as proprietor. Not just over 60 years but The Golden Dragon chronologically contiguous with the last years of Old Chinatown, indeed it could be its final remnant.
It is closed Sunday. Take-out is available: Metropolitan Press, A history of billboard advertising, behind the Portland Outdoor Store. More information:. You went to the Golden Dragon! I want to try too!! We must find out if that bar is still in use! I platialed the front street building. Much thanks for pointing this out. Awesome post on the Golden Dragon!
Lee Wing the founder of the GD was my grandfather. He died when I was a baby, so I have no memory of him, but he is remembered in the family as a kind man and an amazing cook. My grandmother--a true force of nature-- continued running the restaurant after his death putting in 12 hour days, 7 days a week, until her own death in or thereabouts. Her one indulgence was the annual epic birthday party she threw for herself every November--a course Chinese banquet at the restaurant, served to several hundred people, including members of Congress and other local politicos.
It's a point of pride in our family that John F. Kennedy once ate at the Golden Dragon. Oh yes, the food--at least on the "secret" Chinese menu--was really good. At least in my totally unbiased opinion! I am wondering if anyone knows why the Golden Dragon an 3rd st downtown Portland closed? My family has been going there for over 20 years! My kids took there friends and so on, so we were a little bummed out when one day it was closed and now is: Golden Dragon Exotic Dance club!
We never saw a note explaining why the closure So if anyone out there knows please send a line, thanks! D Enbysk. I am wanting to know about the old greyhound station in sw under the bridge. Is it condemmed or could someone possibly rent it out? Who does it belong to is my big question?
The Golden Dragon went out of business at the end of January in They left a sign on the door stating that they were going out of business due to the hard economic times. It was also hard for them to compete with the booming food cart business downtown. Thank you for another wonferdul article.
