Thanks to the reppearance of that giant flaming balls of gas in the sky, we are now bringing back our Summer hours. Starting this Friday (May 27), until Labor Day, we will be open at noon every Friday. That's seven consecutive hours of Happy Hour for you. Enjoy!
Our devotion to alcoholucation knows no bounds (in fact, we might have more accreditation than Trump University): We have just announced brand new classes for both Whiskey 101 and Whiskey 201.
The Whiskey 201 course will be on Saturday, April 23rd at noon. This $45 class is an advance journey through global whiskeys, including everything from Scotch to Irish to Japanese and more.
The Whiskey 101 course will be on Saturday, May 7th at noon. This $40 class is a very special one-of-a-kind Kentucky Derby edition of our traditional Whiskey 101 lesson. In addition to the regular drink-while-you-learn instruction, there will be Mint Juelps for all attendees at the end. Jockey attire is not required.
Both classes are hosted at Paydirt (2724 NE Pacific), and include about a half-dozen tastings, tasty snacks, run about 90 minutes in length, and always sell out. Get your ticket to the Derby Edition Whiskey 101 here and our advanced Whiskey 201 here. Don't delay!
Big news for people who hate being topless: We have a new color design of our classic Drink in Oregon T-shirt. Pick one up today at the bar, or online.
Celiac? Gluten intolerance? Do you think bread is the work of the devil?
Well, then I have good news for you. You can now add a New Cascadia gluten-free bun to all sandwiches on our menu (except the Cubano). Just let us know when ordering.
Our March 5th Whiskey 101 class is sold out. How sad. But don't panic, we'll announce a new one soon.

Say hello to our latest addition to the menu: the Tofu Satay Sandwich. This vegan sandwich—made with seasoned fried tofu, peanut sauce, our secret house slaw, cucumber, and served on toasted Grand Central ciabatta bread—is now a permanate fixture at the Old Gold.
In addition to that, we've added a new Grilled Cheese option (made with sharp cheddar, beer-braised onions, and tomato) to both our regular, and late night, menus.
Why will we be closed?
For our annual Super Awesome Employee Appreciation Party™, that's why.
Our hardworking staff deserves a day off—a day spent on the other side of the bar—but we'll be open at 4pm on Tuesday, January 19th. Don't eat or drink until we reopen.
Aw, jeez. But worry not, we'll post details on a new class date in the coming weeks.
Our January 23rd class is totally sold out. Aw nuts!
But we just announced a new Whiskey 101 class for Saturday, February 6th. As you can see above, these classes sell out quickly so reserve yourself a set—of grab a spot as a gift for a whiskey-loving pal—as soon as you can. Details here.
