Three minutes with Patrick Bevington

Patrick Bevington

Barista, Obies

When and why did you move to Hermiston?

I live in Irrigon, but was going to college here and needed a part-time job.

What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston?

Taste of Thai. I love Thai Food.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Thursday nights, a lot of us go bowling, or find things to do like rat stomping, cruising around, hanging out with friends.

What surprises you about Hermiston?

It doesn’t seem like a big town, but there’s a lot of community, a lot of support. It’s way bigger than people realize.

What was the last book you read?

The Giver

What app or website do you use most?


If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

I love skiing, so somewhere with a lot of mountains, like Colorado.

What is the funniest thing that’s happened to you?

In high school, I was in class and had a small hole in my pocket. My wallet got caught on it, and it ripped my pants all the way down the thigh. I didn’t have anything to cover it, so I rocked that for a couple periods.

What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?

Recently, I applied for the sheet metal union, so hopefully I’ll do well on the test, get picked up by the union and start my apprenticeship.

What is your proudest accomplishment?

During high school, I showed animals. I won FFA round robin every year, but never 4H round robin. I finally won it senior year. That was probably one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.
