    Glad you had a nice time with your family!

    Pliny the Elder is a nice beer!

      I enjoyed the beer! I want to try it again. Now that I know where to find it, I have a feeling I will be doing some exploring.

    Our friends have been wanting to take us to Nuestra Cocina. We have driven by a few times, but we are patiently waiting for our schedules to line up. They are same friends that introduced us to Pliny the Elder jut in the last few months. I’m glad you found it in the bottle because we had it on tap at Apex. As for Good and Evil Wrap, I kind of think I just need to meet you down there.
    All that aside, great taste of Portland for your brother and sister in law. Sorry your time was so short. If it makes you feel any better my one brother has visited me once and my other brother maybe 3 times and we have been here almost 17 years.

      We do need to meet at Cartlandia. I also saw there’s a new cart with chicken and waffles. No word yet on if it’s good!

    Not scared by the Exorcist! That movie scared the bejeezus out of me, but I saw it at a young age and I grew up catholic, so double whammy πŸ˜€

    That food looks so good! I love buffalo chicken so much. I could drink the sauce. Glad you were able to show your family some great places!

      I’m with you Lori. I was raised Catholic and while I am not any longer, that upbringing still makes possession stories scary for me!

      And like you, I can totally drink buffalo chicken sauce. What is in it that is SO GOOD?!?!
