This place is on my dream board. I must have one. In fact, as soon as the market gets better, we're selling our home and getting one of these. Seriously. It's not too big and not too small. The lines are nice and clean and the place really seems huge when you're in one. They are built right here in Salem, Oregon and they are seriously cool. Check 'em out here.

My dad owned a beer tavern back in the 1950s called Al's Place. It was named for him and built by hand by him as well. I always felt a little pride seeing his name up there on the sign even though in retrospect, it was just a little bar out in the middle of nowhere. Still, it was "Al's Place" and that was so cool. I played pool there on the weekend as a kid and the Conjunto Tex-Mex music that blared through the jukebox had a huge influence on my musical taste.
I had some time on my hands and decided to design a logo for a place that was long ago and faraway, but never forgotten.
