We were thrilled that Eric's brother, Dan, and wife, Stephanie, were able to come stay with us for a wonderful weekend visit. We tried to show them different things than we did last year, and we mostly succeeded. This year's trip was a "walkabout" in the greater downtown area.
We started Friday night with late night happy hour at Portland City Grill to give them a bird's-eye (30th floor) view of the city. It was an amazing view, though we failed to take a photo.
|Our later night stop was at Luc Lac, one of our favorite places. We specifically wanted to take them there, and amazingly |
Stephanie had done a little research on Portland restaurants and had been hoping to go there as well! No surprise,
everyone loved the food.
|Our first Saturday morning stop was the Portland Farmers Market at the PSU park blocks. It's immense (this picture |
doesn't do it justice), and we were able to find some delicious goodies to snack on. We'll definitely be back there - can't
believe we hadn't checked it out before this, honestly.
|We walked to South Waterfront area and found a nice place on the riverwalk to sit outside and have drinks.|
|A weekend doesn't seem complete without a stop at the Portland Saturday Market, at least to check out the bands and |
other performers. We've seen this guy on the didgeridoo before, and he's good.
|Cara, Steph and Dan at the Portland Saturday Market. (Okay, this area may technically be part of the Skidmore Saturday|
Market, but they blend together really.)
So I guess we fell down on taking pictures after this point, but our later stops included: Mi Mero Mole (for drinks & snacks), Ground Kontrol (for pinball), Berbati (so we could be ignored by the bartenders, apparently), Shanghai Tunnel (for drinks, Photo Hunt, and a history lesson about the "Shanghai Tunnels" under Portland's Chinatown), Ringler's Annex (forgot we visited it last year), McMenamins Ringler's Pub (another revisit, but some good pinball), and Nob Hill Bar & Grill (steak time, apparently). Whew - we really packed a lot in and had a great time!
