Tonight! Tonight! How will you eat tonight?!
Some of us are headed to Apizza Scholls and didn’t invite me. :( So out of spite I will go to Fire on the Mountain and eat awesome wings and drink beer on special! mmmmm…. wings and beer.
Ethnic pint night and bottles
With Les and Barb out of town, we decided we should celebrate pint night somewhere they might not be too keen about. Since Steve had a jones for Indian food, we thought this was a great opportunity. Did not think that it would be as difficult as it was (for Steve and Jessi anyway, they were doing all the research while I was at work). It would seem that most Indian restaurants in Portland are...
Headed to Biketobeerfest at Hopworks. Then to Nano fest at Green Dragon. All transportation done by bicycle. Then bowling for a hour at Grand Central. Fab day … more details after I sober up.
Bowling at Grand Central. Awesome sauce .

TOAST! for breakfast
Last week Mandy had an unexpected day off and took Barb to Toast for breakfast. (You can check out the website for menus) Needless to say when the picture of the cute little sample scones came to my phone I was not happy. So I made her go again with me on Saturday. I am so happy I did! Being that Portland is a breakfast town on weekends I was expecting a line when we got there at 8:30. What a...
Pint Night: Nobel Rot
For my birthday I wanted to go to Nobel Rot. We have heard so many good things about this place and have never had the opportunity to go. Since I had the birthday power I requested happy hour there. We arrived at 4:45 and were the second group in the lobby. Once we got within 5 minutes of opening the lobby was packed. One group of people who came up completely ignored the fact that about 20 other...
Fondue It! food cart
While taking Barb’s car to get an oil change, Les noticed a slight change in the scenery on Woodstock Blvd. A new food cart in the Shell station parking lot! Since Woodstock doesn’t really have an area big enough for a pod of carts, any addition in the neighborhood is noteworthy. This one is a little blue one called “Fondue-it” and opened just this week. Portable dunkable cheese? I’m in! ...
Brewer’s dinner without coming home broke, bombed...
Ding dong! Goes the text message sound on my cellphone. It’s 11:30 on Monday and I’m at work. “Eastburn has a beer belly dinner tonight for $15. 3 beers and courses. Spots still left.” Jessi is truly a genius at finding amazing things on Twitter. Of course we’re going! There was a slight hesitation because the dinner was being held in the back patio, and it was 96 degrees outside, but how...
Brewers are awesome!
Nightlight: happy hour is yummy
Where is a good place to meet a friend you haven’t seen in a while? Jessi and I thought the Sapphire hotel would be an excellent choice but alas, they were closed for an employee camping trip. While this is a concept I should definitely mention to my boss, it left us with a bit of a quandary. We want some interesting cocktails without having to go downtown. Where to go in Southeast? Answer:...
Florence trip, finale! Surprise, there's more...
On our trip back from Florence we stopped at Heceta Head lighthouse and the Sea Lion Cave. Both were must see things on the Oregon coast. The Sea Lion Cave is a bit pricy ($12/adult) but it was pretty cool. The sea lions were not in said cave. They were hanging out on a rocky outcropping barking and generally having a good time. In the cave they have an interpretive center with info about the sea...
