Back From Portland

We just got back from a wonderful weekend trip to Portland.

I extolled the virtues of Plainfield's Mayur last time we went, and after going back again this time I'm now fully convinced that it is indeed seriously amazing. Good, good stuff.

In addition to the good eats at Plainfield's, the excellent coffee at Stumptown, and a few quality hours in Powell's, we also really enjoyed the stay at the Hotel Vintage which had about as nice a staff as any place I've ever stayed.

All in all another great trip, proving yet again that Portland has a well deserved place on my 'cities I'd consider living in' list. I've uploaded a few photos from the trip to Flickr.

Hey Jamie...

Looking over your music listening list and seeing your post on Portland, I was wondering if you've ever heard the music of Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer? T&C lived in Portland until the untimely death two years ago. If you've never heard their music, check out either "When I Go" or "Tanglewodd Tree," their first and second records respectively. Then move on to their third, "Drum Hat Buddha," which is a masterpiece. Trust me, you'll thank me.

Um....that would be Dave's untimely death. Sorry about that. Eek.

I'll definitely check it out. Thanks for the heads up.

If anyone else is interested in taking a listen, you can find a mp3 download of Ordinary Town on Amazon.com
