It’s cold out. It’s getting dark earlier and light later. We normally wait until the week before Thanksgiving for this, but we need it now. And so it is with great pleasure that tomorrow, Friday the 30th, we're rolling out the Clyde Holiday Drink Menu a few weeks early.n.nWe love our holiday drink menu, and I love that it's become so beloved and important to so many people. I of course like to pretend that we make all drinks quite well, but let's be honest: our holiday drinks are the best drinks we do all year.n.nThis is our eleventh year and I can't imagine the holidays without Tequila-Sherry Eggnog ever again. Or our incredible Hot Toddy that we developed back in 2009, too. Or the best Irish Coffee outside of the Buena Vista Café in San Francisco. And, of course, the relative newcomer, the now-famous Flannel Shirt, with fresh Oregon apple cider and Scotch whisky.n.nThese drinks will be available, as always, through the end of the year. But launch weekend is always our favorite weekend, so we hope to see you tomorrow and Saturday for that first glass of Nog of the season. It's time.

One of the things that has always been a huge part of Clyde is our happy hour. We started doing happy hour when we first opened in 2007, and it was always one of the most important times of the day for us; a time when people could come together at the end of their work day, and get some quality time in before moving on to dinner either in our dining room, at home, or at one of our many wonderful neighbor restaurants.n.nWe haven’t done happy hour since March 15th, sadly, because so much of this has been up in the air. But as we find our footing and expand our seating inside, we are thrilled to reintroduce happy hour to Clyde Tavern, but with a slight twist.n.nInstead of a limited menu of happy hour items, we’re proud to offer you everything we have to offer, each at a $2 discount. Every delicious bite of food, every spirit on our shelves, every bottle of wine, every cocktail, every beer. Everything we have is available for happy hour.n.nHappy hour at Clyde is from 3PM - 6PM, Wednesday through Saturday, starting today. We can’t wait to see you.
The White Negroni. We’ve had various versions foisted upon us in our travels throughout the years, but most of them never quite tasted right to us. Sure, they’re clear(ish) but none of them ever tasted like... a Negroni.n.nWe set out to fix that problem for ourselves a few years ago but never made much of a deal about it. It was relatively easy to do, and by the time we felt like we’d perfected it, the White Negroni craze was all but over. n.nBut since we’ve been easing up on ourselves since reopening as Clyde Tavern, we decided to bring the White Negroni back, this time as a slushy with fresh grapefruit juice.n.nIt’s on the menu now, and we’re open Wednesday through Saturday, from 3PM until 8PM. We’d love to make you one or three.
Ugh. You guys, this year just won’t quit. We opened in a super limited way last night but we’ve decided that even doing takeout and delivery is too dangerous for us tonight.n.nSo we’re are closed tonight and we will figure out tomorrow when it comes. These two faces are super bummed to not be seeing you tonight, having you all on our sidewalk has been such an incredible ray of light.n.nOur hearts go out to everyone affected by these wildfires, we are thinking of you and worried about you and hoping that you’re all safe. This, too, shall pass. But damn if it doesn’t feel like there’s no end in sight. We love you.
We’re back! In case you missed it, we’ve started opening the sidewalk up at 3PM, with some of @chrisdiminno’s amazing dishes like this housemade spaghettini pasta with Calabrian chili, lemon, Dungeness crab and roasted corn. Open until 8PM for food and drink on the street, or for pickup and delivery!
Last week, after many conversations with each other, and a lot of planning, unplanning, and replanning, we quietly opened up a few tables on the sidewalk in front of Clyde for our friends and family. Nothing inside, unfortunately, because that's just not safe enough for us. But it was really nice to serve some drinks and food to our favorite people from a safe distance.n.nToday, we're going to put a few more tables out there because we miss you and would like to see you, too.n.nYou can order from your table at our website, clydecommon.com, or you can come up to the window we've put in at the front door and order from there. We want this to be as safe and as comfortable as possible for you. Our tables are at least ten feet apart and the crew is following every precaution necessary to ensure a safe experience.n.nWe're still doing food delivery through Caviar, but we're also making food available for pick-up, also through our website. So feel free to come down before your food is ready and have a drink outside with us. We'd really love to see you. We're here from 4PM-8PM Wednesday through Saturday (for now).
Clyde Tavern Burgers for days...n.nDid you know that we've been grinding our own beef for the famous Clyde burger (now back to its original delicious incarnation thanks to @chrisdiminno) since we opened in 2007?n.nWe take chuck and brisket from Cascade Natural Beef, grind it in-house and form the burger patties by hand (I know this process well, as Chris has put me to work on occasion).n.nAnd for the die-hard fans from way back, we now offer the original tomato jam as an add-on (on the side, just in case you also need to dip a fry) for just fifty cents.n.nThe bar team has been splitting one of these guys almost nightly for the past thirteen years. If you want to see what the fuss is all about, check out our website (link is in our profile) for pick-up or delivery. We're open Wednesday-Saturday, from 4PM until 8PM, and we love being able to take care of you.
We've been having a great week so far getting you food and beverage for delivery and pickup, which we now do every Wednesday through Saturday. But tomorrow, July 4th, we've decided to give our intrepid band of volunteers the day off for the holiday.n.nIt's a weird time for a holiday, to be honest with you. The country is in turmoil, the whole planet is on lockdown, and we're losing so many of our colleagues at bars and restaurants all over the world every day.n.nWe're going to observe the national holiday the best way we know: with hot dogs. Hot dogs have always been a big part of our culture at Clyde. We stuffed ourselves full of them every July 4th when we were open. I would bring them in for staff meal from time to time. We just love them in all forms: veggie dogs, housemade sausages, and especially the ones made over at our sister's place: Olympia Provisions.n.nHere are a couple of my favorite dogs. This first one is from The Varsity in Atlanta, Georgia. A place I was finally able to visit around this time last year. They're known for their chili dogs, and especially for their peach pie. It’s incredible.n.nThe second shot is from our friends at Pronto Pup here in Rockaway Beach, Oregon. They lay the claim to the invention of the corn dog over there, and given their mastery of the genre we're not going to contest that.n.nSo be sure to get your to-go and delivery orders in tonight from 4PM-8PM, because tomorrow we'll all be standing in a backyard, ten feet apart, enjoying some hot dogs and each other's company. We'll see you again next Wednesday. @ Clyde Common
One last new entree this week! We love (and have always loved) Chris’ squid ink fideos with all our hearts, but we quickly learned they weren’t traveling super well due to the tiny size of that particular noodle. So Chris replaced it with another pasta that still scratches that itch.n.nWe’re now making fresh spaghettini in-house and serving it with Calabrian chiles, charred squid, and scallops. It’s another one of those dishes that goes super well with summer weather, and rocks when paired alongside a radicchio salad and a bottle of rosé.n.nTonight is our last night for the week, open as usual from 4PM until 8PM for pickup and delivery. You can do both from our website, ClydeCommon.com (I’m not gonna change the link in our profile just yet in case there are any more of you who simply *need* to watch that Bourbon Renewal video from yesterday 😂)n.nWe will be back at it next Wednesday as usual! @ Downtown Portland
