My Dad Played At Organ Grinder Pizza

by Bryan Haskin
(Vancouver, WA)

I'm 30 now and I started to go to the Organ Grinder in Portland at 3 months old. My dad, Dale Haskin, loved that place and had his own pipe organ at our house.

He has passed away now and all the organs are gone. I have nothing to remember the Organ Grinder by. I miss it and my dad, too.

If i ever get the money, I will start a place just like that in Portland. I can get an organ and players. I just need the money and to find a place my son would love.

It is so sad it is gone.

Organ Grinder Pizza - A Lost Treasures

Yes, its definately sad that Organ Grinder is no more. It was a marvelous place. It was associated with fun, and there's nothing better than fun, especially when you're a kid.

A few other fun places that are missed include Yaw's, the Jantzen Beach swimming pool, Drive-In movies, and the original Burgerville in Vancouver.

Gone.....but not soon forgotten.
