While in Portland, we did what people do when in Portland when there is a Brewfest going on, or even when there is not a Brewfest going on. We rode the MAX from the hotel to downtown, and saw interesting people.
We ate Brunch at food trucks
we went to the Brewfest where there were many people
we sampled brews and decided what we should sample next.
Then Kat’s sock creature/Facebook friend who she had never met in person before picked us up
and took us to a little Argentinian restaurant somewhere in Portland
for an amazingly delicious lunch.
After which she took us to her home so we could meet her chickens. Minerva is having a grumpy period and was wishing we would just go away and leave her alone
but Alice was a bit more social and did not object to being picked up for cuddling.
We headed back downtown, where we wandered about a bit, then went looking for a place for dinner. Apparently the first night I was more interested in getting seated and eating than I was in documenting, so we will just pretend that it didn’t happen. The second night we found a restaurant listed in Yelp that sounded good – we opted for Chinese – and while looking for it got a bit silly.
I’m pretty sure that was a result of extreme hunger. We discovered the first “restaurant” was a food truck, but we wanted sit-down food, so we wandered to Chinatown
where we ate our fill and headed back to the hotel. You know how it is with Chinese food – combined with having an early dinner – so Gep ordered a Papa John pizza later in the evening which we devoured before we fell into our beds to sleep the night away.
I am skipping around here, but there is more of our days in Portland to share so we will bounce back from our last night to earlier times, but that’s for another post. Or two.
