over the weekend, we had visitors from Vermont. yes, it was raining and rained most of the weekend, but coming from cold snowy Vermont, our guests were happy to be warm. in preparation for the visit, i thought hard about what i wanted to show our friends in such a short period of time. i’m proud of portland and am one of the few who have been here always- going on 36 years now – born @ Bess Kaiser (now Adidas World HQ) no less.
so, using my childhood as a guide, i, along with my loveley wife, put together the following for our guests:

Thursday night: drinks @ Club21 – perfect exhibit of Portland dive; dinner at Le Bistro Montage – no comment needed; late night drinks @ The Spare Room – another example of true Portland. Also, the guests stayed @ McMenamin’s Kennedy School for the night. Wooohoooo.

Friday: Perfect burger and lunchins @ Higgin’s; wander around downtown and to the top of the Dekum Building; visit OddBall shoes in the Pearl- a wonderful store; then home for some homecooked tuna with braized greens and movies.

Saturday: early breakfast at Gravy on N. Mississippi – perfect grub!; walk in the rain; out to Hawthorne for some shopping and business; Multnomah Falls baby – yes, the rain was sideways, but the falls were beautiful; lunch @ McMenamin’s Edgefield and then back into town to visit Guy Burwell, an amazing Portland artist/graphic designer; up to the Rose Garden at twilight; oysters @ Dan and Louis’ in old town.

Wow Portland, I am so proud of you. You made our city shine for our guests. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
