The best thing that happened on the flight was once we got on the plane in Denver, a family with a toddler sat next to us. I'm fine with that, and the kid was being pretty good, but when the plane took off the mom played the song "Butterfly Kisses" outloud, SO LOUD, on a speaker! Who does that? It would have been really annoying if we hadn't been laughing so hard at what a lame song that is.
After about 6 hours in the air we landed in Portland and got right to eating.
A.N.D. Cafe. Travis got a Feast waffle, which was stuffed with vegan sausage, covered in gravy and topped with a tofu scramble. Not my thing but he really liked it, along with his side of biscuits and more gravy, which came with steamed kale. I got a garden grilled cheese that was so yummy! It had spinach and avocado, along with some kind of herb cashew ricotta. It came with tortilla chips which seemed weird and plain when you have nothing to dip them in. But overall we enjoyed this place. It was suggested by an instagram friend!
We were close to Voodoo Doughnut Too, so we stopped by and waited about 25 minutes in line. There were a bunch of vegan doughnuts in the case, but the girl working told us she only had two kinds (and one was maple bars, blech!) so we just got one of each instead of the dozen we planned. I liked the one we got though (voodoo doll/jelly filled). Can you believe I didn't take a photo of it??
Cutie with the doughnuts.Museum of Contemporary Craft! My good friend Dana suggested it to me. Their current show was Alien She, which they described as: the first exhibition to examine the lasting impact of Riot Grrrl on artists and cultural producers working today. Right up my alley!
Augen Gallery to see the Jim Riswold show they had up. I really enjoyed it! I hadn't heard of him before (since I left art school I don't pay attention much), and it made me want to check out the galleries in Nashville to see what they have to offer.
Will You Be My Valentine, Chairman Mao?
Hand-Eye Supply was the shop I was looking for. I knew that they had knives (Travis' favorite!) and I really love these safety posters they sell! They have them on their website here. I love the Ice, Elevate, Vacate one for severed digits!
(I can't wait to go back)
