What Claire Ate: February 5th, 2015

Thursday was strange. I did not eat breakfast. I didn’t eat anything before 3 PM, and instead drank several cups of coffee, none of which I took a picture of.

When I finally did eat, it was kind of gross.

The saddest bowl of tuna with broken crackers.

Fortunately, the day got a lot better (food-wise).

REDACTED and I decided to go to the Portland Chef’s Week opening party, but first we had dinner at Trifecta.

A martini in very unwieldy martini glass.

The olive oil may have been the best part of the bread plate.

Chess pie with cranberry sorbet. (Good, but the crust was a little tough.)

After that, I suggested we make one more stop before heading downtown. That stop was Katchka, because I needed some horseradish vodka.

GLOOOORY BEEEEEE!

That was chased with some of the best pickle brine I have ever had. (Green tomato.)

Bless.

After that, we finally headed to the Chef’s Week party. I never did get a drink, even thought the Savage Gardener-looking bartender made eye contact with me about 9 times. After being actively ignored for close to 8 minutes, we left and went to play tabletop shuffleboard at a different bar.

I had a gin and soda, but didn’t take a pic of it because I was too busy playing tabletop shuffleboard. (I’m guessing.)

THE END.
