Pod Bar: Drink Mobile

Have you ever spent the night at a campground packed with recently retired RVers who all seem to know each other? That’s the vibe at Pod Bar (5205 SE Foster Road, facebook.com/cartsonfoster), the indoor beer garden at Carts on Foster. One of several such watering holes to pop up at cart pods since a judge told the Oregon Liquor Control Commission and the city to back off their jihad against mobile booze, Pod Bar is a cozy nook with a space heater, lava lamp and potted poinsettia beside one of the best new food carts in town (see today’s Cheap Eats guide). Inside, you’ll find vintage steel lawn furniture, seven taps with local beer and cider (including some of the state’s smallest operations), speakers playing old-time country music and, in a nod to the out-of-season Christmas lights found at any RV park worth its flamingos, a line of blue, red and yellow neon bulbs. On the flat-screen TV tucked into the wall, KGW broadcasts a story about a stabbing at Lloyd Center—or, as one misguided patron puts it, “the ghetto mall.” Are you the kind of person who would consider a vacation to Tennessee? Come summer, bring your cornhole boards here.
