Drink 2011: Red Cap Garage


 Whither the Burnside Triangle? Once the epicenter of Portland’s gay scene, it is now being squeezed out by the trendy West End on one side and yuppie Pearl District on the other. But for those still carrying the rainbow flag, Red Cap Garage still parties like it’s 1987. The crowd is generally younger and less hairy than at nearby Scandals, but the huge, heaving sunken dance floor welcomes all comers—from queens to hags—while the entertainment ranges from bingo nights to all-male revues to simply sitting on the heated front patio watching unsuspecting tourists and yuppies wander in off the street—then quickly run out again. RUTH BROWN.
