The Oregon Public House in Portland

Having heard about the seven-month-old Oregon Public House here in Portland, we went to check it out the other night.  Per the pub's promotional material:

"The Pub is a Public Benefit nonprofit located in the heart of the Woodlawn Neighborhood in NE Portland. Three years in the making, created, remodeled and opened by volunteers, with zero debt". 
Here's the kicker: Every penny that the pub earns goes to one of the several designated charities that the pub supports; when you purchase your food and drink, you tell the cashier which charity you want your money to go to. Check this place out. . . . it's great!!  And . . . by the way, we ate the best spinach salad ever!  more info
