    You don't have to worry about that in Portland. The chairs are standard theatre chairs, they only do beer/wine/cider, and they definitely don't deliver to your seat!

    I've been to both Ninkasi and Oakshire, and they are nice places with good beer. I've had Hop Valley and like that as well, but if it ain't obvious by their name, they really like IPAs. ;)

    Between Hood River and The Dalles is one of my favorite parts of the HCRH, the Mosier Twin Tunnels and Rowena Curves sections. Lots less traffic than the more waterfall-y (and tourist-y) western...
