When in Portland, I tend to do the things I like to do in San Francisco (or anywhere for that matter). I like to eat good food, drink good coffee, ride bikes, go to record/book/vintage stores, and drink good beer. That’s pretty much what we did along with stopping to smell the roses in the city of roses.
I found this 1950s New Directions copy of Paris Spleen at Powell’s Books! A prose poem inside is this blog’s namesake.
Three friends went to Three Friends Coffee. Delicious bagels too!
Mississippi Records is the best! More to come on this.
Sweedeedee is the cutest cafe. Their pickles,pies and pastries look out of this world!
Our Surly bike gang.
Broder Cafe has all the Scandinavian goodness.
We went to Beermongers with a beermonger.
Ladd’s Rose Circle is a great place to stop and smell some roses.
