Reservations at Hotel California? Such a lovely place. Better pick up a few things at Jane’s Vanity. Oregonians have a fascination with wicked California. The joke is that, when the 19th century wagon trains arrived on the West Coast, all of the cool people turned left. Yet, Oregon’s dorkiness, slower pace, and even its inclement weather hold an attraction for us, and even for some of our southern neighbors. That is, when we are not fantasizing about mythical Cali.
