Over the past several months, Tony and I have been quite busy with visiting guests in town. Even traveling all the way from Australia, our friends have been dying to visit us in our new-ish city.

As a semi-newbie to Portland, I am always eager to explore new neighborhoods and places to eat and drink with friends. Why you ask?

Tony and I quickly learned that Astoria is famous here in Oregon – Fun fact: Astoria was home to the bevolved film, The Goonies! I’ll admit that I haven’t […]
