Tonight is date night for Jeff and Liz and part of our date is to find the secret passageway that leads to a Lilliputian cafe and bar. Located at the Art House at Mcmenamins Old St Francis School is a series of passageways and the fun begins. You do need to be quiet as the hallways and rooms could be occupied. So let’s begin by looking for the secret hallway which starts on the main floor. We are looking for a door which says Barnsdale Crescent-enter at your own risk-this passageway is so amazing.
Next we head to the third floor looking for the Broom Closet- they encourage you to enter. Now the question is- are you brave enough to enter. Even after you slowly open the door and even then, what you see is a hallway of old witchie brooms, now what. Glancing around at the very artsy brooms what do you do next, we started pressing the panels and OMG one of the panels moved, we slowly pushed and entered a Lilliputian bar. Surrounded by art and greeted by a very energetic bartender who was eager to satisfy our explorers thirst. So much fun and sad the adventure has ended. We will certainly be bringing our Bend quests and exposing them to this fun quest.
Mcmenamins is far more than a artsy secret passageway, with 55 locations around Oregon and Washington, every location is worth a stop. Their signature wines and beer and pub food is renowned. The art and creativeness of every location is so worth a self tour.
