The man buns, the artisanal donuts, the birds,  the cliches, yes this is Portland. But it’s also diversity, clothing and FOOD. It’s a dizzying array of countless cuisines. And holy cow, I just had an amazing curry bowl at Harlow.

We had a sold out show last night at Revolution Hall and have another tonight but I have spent the day shopping consignment and vintage stores. There are about 9 coffee shops/roasters in a three block stretch. I am going to grab a latte, go to a bookstore and then head back to the hotel (McMenamins Kennedy School, both great and a little overly hipster for me). I feel old. Not a usual feeling. That’s one other thing about Portland, lots of 20 somethings. But it’s good to be here, I’m lucky to have this time to roam a bit. Lucky all round.
