Sneak Peek at Pol Jesse Cornett's Guild Public House

New, 3 comments

[Jones, 1/12/11]

And here, physical proof of a politician keeping a promise: BlueOregon founder Jesse Cornett's E. Burnside pub Guild Public House, located on the first floor of the Noble Rot building, is ready for its January 14 grand opening (a few preview events are on-tap this week).

The 125-seat space boasts a 92-inch projector downstairs (for sports fans) and a 50-inch plasma upstairs (so "political geeks know they have a spot they can rely on to watch political debates and election night returns"), while the building's famous green-friendly features include geothermal temperature control. McCormick and Schmick’s veteran Jason Roy mans the kitchen (plans to add an outdoor barbeque will up menu offerings), while Cornett and co-owner Molly Aleshire have pledged to donate five percent of all profits — all the time — to charity.
