Long Description:



In May 1967, J. E. "Bud" Clark bought Ann’s Tavern on 19th and SW Jefferson and changed the name of the establishment to the Goose Hollow Inn. The Inn serves "the Best Reuben on the West Coast."

J. E. "Bud" Clark is known for being the Mayor of Portland, Oregon from 1984 through 1992. A populist with little political experience before becoming mayor, he was one of Portland's most colorful and well-loved political figures. "Bud" Clark is perhaps best known for being the raincoat-wearing model for the poster titled "Expose Yourself to Art" (see second picture from left in default photo).

Prior to the Goose Hollow Inn, "Bud" Clark ran a tavern called the Spatenhaus, located at SW Third and Market, on the location of what is now the Ira Keller Forecourt Fountain. The Spatenhaus was closed due to Urban Renewal in November 1967. Much of the Goose Hollow Inn's menu came from the Spatenhaus, as did many of its customers.

"Bud" Clark ran the Goose Hollow Inn during the 1970’s and early 1980’s. His wife, Sigrid, assumed management of the Goose when he ran for Mayor of Portland in 1984. After his second term, "Bud" Clark retired from public life and resumed his career as a tavern owner. The Goose, now owned and operated by the Clark family, is located across the street from the Goose Hollow/SW Jefferson MAX station.

I had the best reuben sandwich on the planet with carrot sticks, pickle, potato salad and a ice cold Heineken beer at a booth overlooking Jefferson and the MAX station. Afterwards I looked at all the photos on the walls. A particular favorite was a 1941 photo of Joel Coffey and "Bud" Clark with their 1st business--a lemonade stand. Three of the boys in the photo are still his friends.

Instructions for logging waymark: A photograph is required of you (or your GPS receiver, if you are waymarking solo) and the Goose Hollow Inn. A photo with "Bud" Clark would be great!
