Beer and Bites in Portland

11.17.2009--Portland 009

I recently attended an amazing conference in Portland and Eddy was able to join me over the weekend for a fun-filled mini vacation. Turns out, the best things to do in this town are drink microbrew and eat gourmet. Needless to say, we had a great time!

Aside from the celebrated food cart fare, Davis Street Tavern was one of my favorite finds. One day for lunch I enjoyed the Fearless Scottish Ale, the most heavenly crab bisque ever and the salad Nicoise. We also loved Milo City Cafe. Over the course of our trip, we ate there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Best Hungarian mushroom soup ever!

We visited the famed Saturday Market. Lots of great food and beautiful arts and crafts. We also met a few of my Etsy friends. Not surprisingly, Portland has a large population of Etsians. We had a nice chat with one of the owners of appetite home--one of my all-time favorite shops.

Our big outing was to the International Rose Test Garden. It involved a beautiful (but strenuous) march up a mountain.
