It’s that time of the year in the Pacific Northwest where there are Friendsgiving’s galore, our December calendar is filling up FAST with holiday parties, and everything it getting delightfully dark, rainy, and gloomy in Portland.

Photo Credit via Feast Portland I recently wrote on our favorite places to dine in Portland, but I know Tony and I have only scratched the surface of the food scene here.

In Portland, the food/drink scene is great, the people are overwhelmingly friendly, and there is so […]
