Scenes from Portland

This weekend I headed south with my good friend Katie. We went down to Portland to visit one of our old friends who lives in the area. We went down to visit about two years ago, and decided that it was well over due for another visit. Lots of tax free shopping, and yummy food was had. A great way to spend part of the long weekend.

 Unfortunately, this trip wasn't in the summer like our last one so we were stuck indoors for the most part, but we still managed to have a good time!

 We went to this awesome hotel called The Nines. Inside there were a few different restaurants. One being Urban Farmer. Urban farmer is set in the middle of the 8th floor. It's an open air concept, and is furnished nicely. We took advantage of the bloody Mary bar, which was delicious, and that's coming from someone who doesn't normally like bloody Marys.We also went to Widmer Brother's Brewery. You just can't go to Portland with out visiting at least one brewery. Portland is one city that is FULL of micro breweries.
