Healthy Eating, Yukon Tavern Style

It’s a new year, with all the familiar resolutions to eat healthier than you did when you indulged over the holiday season. The Yukon Tavern is here to help with delicious pub grub that will give you the good food you want at a tavern but won’t throw you off your goals.

Getting Your Vegetables

Start your meal with a basket of Fried Green Beans and dipping sauce. They will give you that satisfying crunch typical of a great appetizer without the carbs associated with fries, tater tots, or onion rings. With a cupful of sauce (our fried green beans comes with ranch, but you can go for something spicier, like BBQ or Siracha), you’ll get the pleasing experience of traditional finger food, without the calories.

Protein Packed Entrees

Burgers don’t have to be a cheat meal. Get your fix with a Yukon Topless Double! We load it up just as you would expect a burger to be, with lettuce, tomato, and onion stacked on top of two juicy patties and a creamy slice of melted cheese for a low carb treat. There’s a pickle on the side and we can leave off the chips if you want to go all the way in meeting your goal. This is a great option for those following a keto or gluten-free diet.

 Vegetarians Rejoice!

We may be known as a traditional neighborhood bar with a menu full of delicious fried treats, but that doesn’t mean we can’t up our game to include a vegetarian choice on our menu. We’ve created a Veggie Burger that will provide the protein punch expect in a burger with the pleasing taste that you expect from the Yukon. We pile on the vegetables and cheese and put it between a velvety bun. It’s a veggie miracle!


Healthy Drinks? We’ve Got You Covered!

Pair your meal with Abliss Lemon Gingerdrink for a dose of the much talked about CBD natural supplement. It’s a cool and refreshing drink that provides the health benefits of marijuana, without the mind affecting chemicals of THC. The best part is that it hightens the taste of the healthy meal you’re enjoying!

Start the year off on the right foot with a healthy, satisfying, and delicious meal at Southeast Portland’s Yukon Tavern!

The Yukon “Suds and Cinema” Presents a Special Halloween Showing of “The Shining”

“Here’s Johnny!”

That’s right—one of Hollywood’s best ghost stories is coming to the Yukon Tavern this Tuesday, October 30th!

Yukon - The Shining

The 1980 classic The Shining is based on the best-selling book by horror master Stephen King. It was produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick and takes place at the historic Overlook Hotel located in the Colorado Rockies. (With exterior shots of Oregon’s own Timberline Hotel stepping in for the Overlook.)

 Yukon - The Shining1_Edward Stojakovic

The movie follows frustrated writer Jack Torrance, played by Jack Nicolson, and his family to the Overlook when he takes a job as the hotel’s winter caretaker. With his ditsy wife and clairvoyant son in tow, they soon find themselves at the mercy of the ghosts that permanently inhabit the hotel. It’s a role that underscored the “on-the-edge” characters that Nicholson became famous for and exhibits the artistic character of Kubrick’s filmmaking style.

Yukon - Summer Ciders2 2

The Shining is a favorite of many fans of horror, one of which is the Yukon Tavern’s manager Ashley McGarr, who says, “That movie is so good and so scary—it IS Halloween!”

Greeley - Trick or Drink

October is the month to celebrate the ghosts and goblins that hide in the shadows, so don your scariest costumes and gather up all your fiendish friends for a night at the movies. This film is made to freak you out and, between King’s warped storytelling, Kubrick’s artistic filmmaking and Nicholas’s crazed performance, The Shining delivers a frighteningly fun cinematic experience.

Glasses Of Beer Alcohol Drink Beverage Lager Beers

Join us on October 30th at 7:20p.m. at the Yukon Tavern for a terrifying trip into the world of Hollywood horror. Come in costume and get a treat of a free well or domestic pint on us! And, don’t worry—our bartenders are not ghosts.

Vine and Pallet Returns with a Fall Themed Painting

Yukon - Vine and Pallet

Shh… Can you hear it? Is it calling your name?

Listen close and you might hear your artistic spirit calling you to the Yukon Tavernin Southeast Portland for another Vine and Pallet mobile studio workshop.


2016-12-11 00.12.01

When you sit down to an afternoon of painting with Vine and Pallet’s resident artist Tina McDaniel you experience art instruction, as well as inspiration. Tina has been painting all her life and is passing on her knowledge to her students through formal and informal instruction. Don’t worry about your experience or skill when you paint with Vine and Pallet; just bring your “can do” attitude and you’ll be taking home your very own masterpiece at the end of the event.


Vine and Pallet has all the supplies ready for you to create a masterpiece of your very own, so all you’ll need to bring is your willingness to give it a try. And, while you’re here why not order up a great meal from the Yukon’s kitchenor a drink from our bar. Painting with Tina is always a fun social event, so get creative and join the party!

Yukon Oct 6 2.jpg

This month Tina is taking us to the dark side with a Halloween themed painting of a terrifying pumpkin patch. Unlike other mobile art studios, Vine and Pallet strives to bring out the unique inner artist in you, so don’t expect a “paint by numbers” approach with this instructor. Tina is interested in helping you develop an individual expressive style that you can develop over time, refining your vision and opening the channel to your own endless inspiration.


Come out to the Yukon Tavern in Southeast Portland on Saturday, October 6th at 3pm to paint with Tina McDaniel of Vine and Pallet!
