Anybody going to Deschutes today to try the Giraffe on Ice Skates?
At Hawthorne Hophouse if you’d like to join.
Wet weekend, day 2
Our lovely little cabin in Cape Blanco managed to stay dry and not blow into the Pacific, and none of us drowned on our way to the bathrooms on Saturday night. Sunday was still windy, but the rain was significantly less intense than the day before. We headed out to take some shots of the Cape Blanco lighthouse and the Hughes house, home of the former owners of the park lands. The water in the...
Won Wet Weekend Day 1
After recuperating both physically and financially from the Christmas holiday, Steve was hearing the call of the travel bug. With a trip to Walla Walla in neck-in-neck competition with a trip south toward Brookings, OR, the January weather suggested that south might be a little more human friendly than east. So we loaded up the little car and hit the road Saturday morning. We drove for about 4...
Silverton and questionable motives
The excuses I will come up with to go to a new brewpub… Current excuse: I needed to stop by the Gordon House in the Oregon Gardens to look at some cushions for work. No, it was not mandatory, nor was it even suggested by my boss or the client. This was my over-the-top attempt at customer service for a stressed out lady. Did I need to do this? Not really, but the Gordon House was...
Headed south for the weekend!
Mandy, Steve and I are hoping in the car and driving to Cape Blanco to explore southern Oregon a bit. Of course, beer and wine will be included in the travel. Hopefully I will have cell service and will post pics along the way!
thenatwolff asked: So I see we crossed paths this evening! Let's cross paths again and enjoy a drink (or five) together!!!
Burnside Brewing Company
Pint night last Friday was held at Burnside Brewing Company (twitter account here). They had recently released their own IPA and I wanted to try it. Luckily everyone else was on board. I love this logo! I got there early and grabbed a seat at the bar. The bartender served me quickly with a smile. Once everyone else arrived there was a wait for a table. Beer makes waiting easier so a round was...
Moreland House: A nice addition to the...
I just got back from a very nice dinner. I drive down SE Milwaulkee constantly and happened to notice some renovation recently. The space formerly known as the Springwater Grill was papered over. Then it was magically a restaurant that was open. I immediately came home and googled it. Nothing! They really do not have a website yet. Also while I was told they are on Yelp I couldn’t find them...
To all of our followers. We have been seriously slacking on the blogging front. Tomorrow begins more regular blogging with my awesome dinner I had tonight. A place you need to go if you live in Portland. Thanks for hanging in there with us! We love all y’all!
Any Portlanders know anything about the Moreland House? It used to be the Springwater Grill on SE Milwaukee. Just drove by. It looks very nice inside. I haven’t found anything online about the change. Maybe a walk is in order…
