And we are back with a bang. By “with a bang,” I mean “with a lot of food” because this weekend was filled with delicious food.
Saturday, we met our friend Chris (who also moved here from Florida) for a brunch at EastBurn. This place has everything. Swings, sour beer, fire pits in your table, create your own Bloody Mary bar, etc.
Warm your hands and your liver (or something).
I ordered a delicious breakfast sandwich.
With ham AND bacon.
It fell apart pretty quickly.
After we finished eating, we moved inside to watch the rest of an ill-fated football game. I drank this sour to help with my sadness.
After that, we wandered around Hawthorne, stopping to window shop for coats we couldn’t afford and doughnuts we could.
I got Blue Star’s basic glazed.
It had a little too much cinnamon and not enough yeast for my taste. Sean got the chocolate almond ganache option, and I liked that one a lot.
The chocolate was nice and dark.
After more window shopping, we took our talents to North Portland, where we met up with some friends at Prost.
I had a German beer which was okay.
I don’t remember what it was called.
Shared a pretzel with Chris.
And had a toddy.
Around 9 PM, we walked around more to find food and settled on a sushi place that had a happy hour thing going on.
I got some ramen.
I added a quail egg because there was an option to add a quail egg.
I had another toddy, but made Chris drink most of it because my stomach was so full of liquid.
This one was pear flavored, and it was excellent.
I slept very deeply.
