As I am working on completing my Mc­Men­a­mins Passport adventure by the end of 2017, I am visiting many of their 116 venues, both large and small. I have no­ticed that they generally fall into one of two categories.

Some of their locations, like Edgefield, Ken­nedy School, Cornelius Pass Road­house, and numerous others, are historic properties which usually have a lot of character, and often interesting menus. Another group of pubs are housed in fairly-​modern buildings with no historical significance. Not only do these locations have fairly boring ar­chi­tec­ture, but they often seem to have mundane, run-​of-​the-​mill pub-​fare menus as well.

These boring buildings and menus can easily result in boring photographs. While I might take hundreds of pictures at one of their historic properties, I might take just a few at the less interesting locations. Consequently, there is really no need for each of these lesser locations to each have its own photo album.

Last year I established the McMenamins Miscellaneous 2016 album to handle these cases. But the inaugural photos for this year’s album don’t really fit the scenario I described above. My first outing to Edgefield last year was so rich that I ended up creating four separate albums to hold the abundance of photos. In contrast, my February 2017 visit to Edgefield for a “History Pub” event was not really a photo outing.

Therefore, I have only five pictures from that trip that are worth sharing, which are not enough for a new, separate Edgefield album. Consequently, I have created this McMenamins Miscellaneous 2017 album for these five photos. I still have a lot of McMenamins venues to visit this year, so I know that I will be adding many more pictures to this album.
