Boring, Oregon

We ventured to Boring, Oregon, about 30 minutes from Portland. We found the address of what used to be the Boring Tavern. The sign now reads, "Knot So Boring Tavern - I love this bar" or something like that. The building is entirely vacant and looks like it's closed down. The only "boring" thing that I saw was "Boring Bark." Other than that, there truly is nothing of interest in this "town." The signs are funny - they have one on the side of the road that says "Entering Boring,"

Boring Topless Dancers

I'd like to add something to your notes regarding Boring, Oregon. there IS one place of SOME interest there. The Boring Tavern, home of the "famous" Boring Topless Dancers. The dancers and the tavern are as boring as any other you'd find in a small town like that, but you can get the t-shirt here, and its like 7 dollars for that and a pitcher of Oly(mpia).
