We’re going to Portland this weekend! I haven’t taken a train in Seattle yet, so it will be quite the adventure taking one there. Portland is smaller than Seattle and the vibe is different. So, it’s perfect for a weekend. Every one of my past visits involved good shopping and eating finds, so I’ve been saving calories and money for this trip. The restaurants I hope to visit include: Tasty n Sons, Pok Pok, Screen Door and Veritable Quandary. Given the abundance of food carts, little cafes and, um, Voodoo Doughnuts, I have a feeling I won’t have the appetite to try all of the places on my wish list. But I will try. Oh, yes, I will try.
