The Oarhouse then and now


Oarhouse interior, circa 1995. That's Chino Medina behind the bar. The look of it then was why the Peace Corps volunteers and backpackers from Europe and elsewhere loved the place. Your solid hardwood bar, cheap cold beers, baked eggplant and your spaghetti and meatballs college-style grub. Posted by Hello

I can't tell you how great an idea I think an oarhouse blog is. I will be checking in regularly. Keep the SM cold, I'll make it out there eventually.

Thanks Steve. Of all people, you know that 'the house' is your home here. You should have been at the wake of Fernando Poe, and I still remember the encounter we had with him in Puerto Princesa and then Mayor Hagedorn. He would've kept the beers coming in the hotel lobby, eh? ;-)
