Back!

I LOVE Portland!  Pretty much everything about it.  God.  Wow.

Highlights:

  • Melissa’s adorable former-warehouse apartment near the railroad. (Melissa is my #1 tastemaker in all things musical and literary.  We also have the same purse.)
  • Daryl’s beautiful house.
  • Fall colors.  In Denver I feel like we missed this — the leaves started to turn, and then we got that early freeze/snow/ick, at which point they almost all turned brown and crispy while still on the trees.
  • Butternut squash risotto.
  • Powell’s (of course)
  • HOT drinks.  I’m totally bringing these to Denver: pear hot toddies (pear brandy) and cowboy coffee (coffee with kahlua, tuaca, and frangelico, served with a sugared rim).  And the bars we visited, The Liberty Glass and the Doug Fir, were both worthy of favorite-ing (especially the former — adorable).
  • Noah and the Whale.  What a cute bunch of talented guys.

  1. Those drinks sound delicious.

  2. They need to be our new Denver drinks. Portland isn’t even as cold….
