Full on Food, Wine and Fun at Full On Oregon – Part 2
Since the event ended that Saturday evening, I normally would have flown home on Sunday. However, it was the 10th anniversary of 9/11, so I stayed over in Portland for one more day. I could not bring myself to fly cross country on that date.
I was able to take in a little more of Portland and the Pearl District on my own that last day. I had breakfast at a very quirky little place with a few of my new friends and Andrew. Then Andrew and I wandered the city for a bit, stopping at Powell’s Books to see all the REAL books. I then met up with Richard for a brief time to enjoy some more wine at Pinot in the City. I have to say that even I was pretty wined out by this point, so I wimped out and left Richard (the professional wine tasting guy) to do his thing.
I ended my day with a delightful dinner at Metrovino. Thank you to Chef Gregory Denton for the menu suggestions. Everything was excellent.
Goodbye Oregon. I will be back.
