Saturday, October 8th, 2016

We’re going to be honest: we’re pretty wowed by our tour guide, Joe Streckert. Not only is he a native Portlander (yes they do exist!), which is a rarity these days in a city full of transplants, he actively leads five out of our seven different types of tours. How he keeps them all straight […]

We’ll See You in the Theater

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

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). We will walk half a mile to find a recycling bin for the bottle of artisan cold-brew coffee we just chugged, […]

Portland’s reputation as a major “foodie” city has bumped up a notch… and is likely to rise up further, after this week.

Let your taste buds go on vacation…

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

I love fresh fish and chips. When the newest food cart opened on 5th and Stark I was left wondering why someone hadn’t done a coastal cart yet to date (or at least that I knew about). So of course, I bellied up to Oregon Coast Fish Co. and ordered the daily special. A big […]

What every food cart customer needs

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Like any true Portlander I do my fair share of food cart consumption at our over 600 food carts. I have seen the even better Portlanders with their home containers walking up to any number of carts asking not to waste the paper/container their yummy goods would normally come in. When I see those people […]

Grab a snack at the Portland Farmer’s Market

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

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 […]
