Hi! I'm still enjoying your blog :) I just went through to find your "thrifting advice" for Portland, as I'm actually flying there this upcoming weekend for a short vacation. I plan on bringing a duffle so I can take home all my goodies. Do you have any Portland advice: must-see places or food suggestions? Thanks! -Ginger
Hi, Ginger! I’m glad you like the blog. :) Hmmm…. Portland advice for a weekend visit? My thought when traveling is always eat, see, and do what the locals would do…. Not what the tourists would do. And it is just your luck that in Portland, it is one in the same. Sort of. Here we speak highly of our coffee, so I suggest hitting up any Stumptown as a happy local/tourist middle ground. We love our breweries… I prefer Dechutes over Rogue if you want to get touristy… But there are better smaller breweries to be tried, just a bit out of the way. I mean, Portland is weird and likes being weird so hit up Hawthorne and Alberta and Mississippi for good people watching and shopping. And as for food and drink, OMG…. Brunch!!!! Id suggest Tasty and Sons. Hands down. We love food carts… Try the ones on se 12 and Hawthorne… Eat the poutine. we have a ton of good artisan pizza, great sushi, French/American cuisine, not such a great Mexican food scene here. Vegan? Bye and Bye and Sweet Hereafter are a must… But you can find vegetarian/vegan options almost anywhere (worth going). Most bars offer great drinks with house infused spirits… It’s pretty standard. I don’t love our Saturday market, as it’s full of tourists, but you could check it out. Get a beer and see a cheap movie at the mcminamins theaters. No guarentees on the beer though. Not my favorite. Oh. And if you need dessert, I’d suggest Salt and Straw for interesting ice cream flavors and a cool vibe…. Considering it is ice cream. If nothing else, drink pbr in any park and you’ll be one of the team. Anybody think of anything I missed?? :) Have a great trip!!
it makes me smile when people like or reblog things I posted a long time ago. it’s just nice to know that people take time to look through my posts and they find something we both enjoy and can share that commonality for a second. :)
i think dawson is whinier than joey. idk, i've never watched young americans. it didn't last very long, did it?
Katie Holmes = worst ever.
Never watched Young Americans?!?!?! Shane… I mean Kate Mo…whatever…. pretending to be a boy and yelling on a crew boat was a defining moment of my high school experience. And the boy she made out with. Idk his name. Anyway…. ya. It only lasted one season and I was so sad.
