Happy Monday
Feb 1 2010

We took an impromptu trip to our friendly neighbor of the south, Portland. Home to Donald Miller, one of the best public transportation systems in America, and more hipsters than you can shake a stick at.

It is truly one of my favorite, and most relaxing cities in the world.

  • Drinks at the Annex Bar. The coziest dive in all of Portland.
  • VooDoo Doughnuts for their famous maple bacon bar, a cinnamon sugar doughnut, and a giant (no seriously) glazed doughnut that took-up an entire box.
  • Visited two new wineries: Torii Mor & Lange
  • My first Buffalo Wild Wings in months. I’ve still yet to find a replacement for these things in Seattle. Don’t tell me they’re overrated.
  • Lost in the stacks a Powell’s, the world’s largest bookstore.
  • Watched The September Issue via Marriott in-room movies. I’m obsessed with business, and I don’t discriminate which industry you’re in. I can honestly say that I was not only not bored, I was intrigued. Great movie.
  • Chelsea got to see Haystack Rock for the first time.
  • Visited Mikey’s house from The Goonies. Kinda performed the truffle shuffle – video later.
