Portlanders have many stereotypical quirks. Supposedly, we’ll put a bird on anything that stands still long enough to get DIY’d. We all commute to work by bike (when our unicycles are in the shop).

When I see those people […]
I am sometimes (no, usually) guilty of taking a detour on the way back to the office to snack on fresh berries, tomatoes, and cheese from local farmers at one of Portland’s weekly Farmer’s Markets. The love I have for browsing the local produce and sampling is probably a bit too immense. The lush greens […]

Taking the everyday eating experience into consideration, as well as availability of fresh local produce, meats and seafood; Portland “could probably be crowned the Pacific Northwest’s capital of –isms: locavorism, vegetarianism, and microbrewism.” You can also learn all […]
