The Bent Brick - Portland, Oregon

Bent Brick Portland, Oregon
The Bent Brick over in Northwest Portland, just north of the Pearl District hosted us the other night for Urban Hour. An event put on with UrbanSpoon.com where contributors to Urbanspoon have a chance to meet each other and enjoy great food.

Bent Brick's atmosphere is awesome, they have done a great job with their space. There entry way was really neat, but I didn't get a picture of it.
While we were there the bartender gave us a demonstration of one of their signature cocktails made with rhubarb. 
To make their signature drink On The Veranda you first have to make a rhubarb cordial.

Rhubarb Cordial

2lb rhubarb cleaned and cut into 1 in pieces
1 cup sugar
1liter vodka
Combine ingredients and shake to incorporate. Keep chilled. Let sit one month and shake daily. Strain and enjoy.
