According to Wikipedia:
A number of current corn dog vendors lay claim that credit for the
invention and/or popularization of the corn dog. Carl and Neil Fletcher
lay such a claim, having introduced their “Corny Dogs” at the Texas State Fair sometime between 1938 and 1942. The Pronto Pup vendors at the Minnesota State Fair claim to have invented the corn dog in 1941. Cozy Dog Drive-in, in Springfield, Illinois, claims to have been the first to serve corn dogs on sticks, on June 16, 1946. Also in 1946, Dave Barham opened the first location of Hot Dog on a Stick at Muscle Beach, Santa Monica, California
Portland holding its own in bars, strip clubs, food carts, coffee houses, etc., is pretty darn impressive when you consider that the Seattle metro area has well over one million more residents than PDX metro!
Probably telling that (arguably) the best espresso in Seattle is found at Stumptown, which hardly rates a mention among Portland coffee literati these days.
Fun to read but I’m guessing the author isn’t from Portland. Couch Park is pronounced ‘kooch’. Not sure how you’d know unless you lived in Pdx.
Rockaway Beach, Oregon also claims inventing the pronto pup
Curchkey Can Co. is based in Portland. Suck it Seattle.
With Portland I would go with hippie over hipster.
No churchkey is brewed in Seattle by two beers brewing, but the recipe was developed in Portland. Come on meow.
Portland has way more train hopping heroin addict runaways. I say Portland wins just because its not Seattle. We have kinda grown past hipster here.

I disagree with the strip club signage. Portland used to have a strip club that my dad used to be a bouncer at called The Dancing Bare. The sign was a stripper dancing next to a dancing bear.
I believe the sign is the same. I know the place still exists. It’s right in front of the Kenton Imax station.
Herpes over hairpieces. Definitely.
