Cork and Neon

August 20th, 2010


  1. Man, that took a whole lotta wine drinkin to make..

    • Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

      That’s what I was thinking. Maybe they keep adding corks as they empty bottles?!

      • Jeff says:

        I have a poland springs bottle (one of those office water cooler ones) filled to the top with wine we have drank. Now I know what to do with them…Make curtains for the kitchen. Owe ya one Matt…..Pizza and beer are on me!!

        • Jeff says:

          lush….Wine corks are in the bottle not wine…dahhhh….Flagged!!!!

          • Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

            I’m glad you clarified that Jeff you had me confused there. I thought WOW that’s a whole lotta wine but why did you put it in one of those water jugs?!?

  2. Well, it’s Greek to me…

  3. deanna valenti meyer says:

    Mmmmmmm! Greek food!! I’m not sure where this place is, but I think I need to go exploring in Downtown Portland to find out. :) Being the Greek girl that I am, I need to test all Greek food to be sure it’s up to snuff…or at least close to how my Mom or Yiayia (Grandma in Greek) make it. Otherwise, I cannot say it’s “authentic”. :)

    • Scot in Forest Grove says:

      It’s the Alexis on 215 W Burnside, a couple blocks east of the Chinese gate.

      • deanna valenti meyer says:

        I’ve heard a lot about this place….maybe someday when I venture into Portland (which I try to avoid pretty much), I will have to check it out. Thanks for the info Scot!! :)

  4. Lisa in Goldsboro NC says:

    That looks pretty cool.

  5. charlie says:

    I guess they took someone literally when they were told to ‘put a cork in it’!

  6. MN Roxanne says:

    My cat loves playing with corks… she would be in heaven with a curtain of them!

  7. Gigi says:

    I thought at first this was a Portuguese restaurant considering that half of the world’s output of commercial cork is from Portugal ..

  8. Candice in Alabama says:

    Cork comes from an oak!

  9. katzien in austin says:

    Now we see much more synthetic cork and plastic composite corks. Even nicer wines are screw caps now. Trees have more important things to do than be our bottle stoppers. And besides…once I open a bottle of wine, the cork is no longer needed! Ba ha ha ha!!!
