I’ve returned from my first trip to Portland! What a fun, artistic mecca. I had a great time visiting and reviewing a plethora of neighborhood restaurants, shops, and day hikes with my good friends – the locals – Sara and Ari.
My personal favorites from this trip included an intense bike race in the middle of downtown, and dinner at feuding Indian Chaat house carts on a street corner nearby. All of this was followed by a late-night bar session of shuffle board paired with Maker’s and Ginger. Sara, who works for the Society for Environmental Graphic Design, and I also had a number of invaluable design and marketing discussions in the midst of all this beautiful scenery and excitement.
