I have to talk about food-can't resist!


Fole gras is totally available in portland. I hear that Sel Gris is one of ther best restaurants and I think they have it at ten-01 happy hour even.

I would try hitting fancy places at happy hour to get a taste of many restaurants portland has to offer. I use this site to find good prices
http://www.urbandrinks.com/happyhour/usa/or/portland/downtown/today

but I use chowhound.com to find good restaurants.

I don't do jewelry but Let it Bead is really close to Pioneer Square and nice--but pricey.

hope your trip is great!

Thanks everyone!  What can I say I am a bit of a foodie and love to get eat when I travel.  I love living in Costa Rica but it does limit access to some foods.   Fortunately, I am a crafty gal and can McGyver most the foods I like.


Thanks for the urbandrinks and chowhound link.  These are great and I am going to add a few posts from my recent trip to Italy.  And I am hoping it comes in handy for upcoming trips to Peru and Buenos Aires.

FYI - I just found out the restaurant at the Benson does a seared foie gras.  This gave me the idea of doing a dinner crawl in the area.  So drinks and seared liver yumminess at the Benson and then on to.......well, I am not sure yet but I am working on it.

For a VERY special dinner out, you can't miss the Heathman Hotel's restaurant - I only get to go maybe once a year, but I remember my meal fondly for the rest of the year (bacon-wrapped venison and acorn squash, sigh...)

Thanks for the suggestion.  We will be meeting up with my BIL and his fiancee so maybe we should go there.  We want it to be special since this is the first time we are meeting her. 

Or they could be the main course for my dinner crawl.

My husband and I adore Portland. In fact, if it wasn't for our jobs and families and crazy events in life, we would have been living snugly in a kitschy retro cottage in Belmont already. We come up a lot from Tennessee but we are hopeful that our situation will improve so that we can move there in the next few years. until then, we will have not settle for bi-yearly excursions. Therefore,  just bought our tickets to fly up the week of May 9-14. Is there anything crafty going on that week? We really never get to investigate the nitty-gritty of Stumptown (each time we come up we have usually only had a few days of non-business bliss), so what are the best hole-in-the-wall shops, bars, etc? Also, how the hell do you get to coast without a car? Thanks!

That is super-convenient because we are staying at the Jupiter most of that week.
I will check that site out. Thanks so much!
