After an adventure-filled night out, we decided to take the day easy before we left for Portland. This meant lots of snacking and stocking up on food for our drive down. We perused Pike Place Market, again, and ate mini doughnuts, a matsuri hotdog, we bought some mini cheesecakes (from The Confectional) and I managed to sneak in another oyster shot when nobody (except Cat) was looking.
We walked down the street, peering into boutiques and cafes, and by then, it had started raining, so we decided to pack up and head out for our next destination!
It was a 2-hour drive (of course, I slept through most of it…listening to Slipknot. Yes, I fell asleep listening to Slipknot -___-), where we were again able to cross the state border by bridge (SO COOL!). We stopped off downtown, where we hit the tail-end of an gay pride parade. Our main aim was to pick up doughnuts from Voodoo Doughnut, but the shop turned out to be closed for renovations. Lucky for us, there was a Voodoo Doughnut #2, that we went to the next day. For dinner, we hit up “Blue Plate” for some excellent comfort food. We each got a homemade soda or shake, in addition to the burgers and sandwiches we ordered. I, of course, ordered a grilled cheese sandwich (with Tillamook cheese!) and tomato soup. It NEVER gets old to me :]
After filling our bellies, we found our way to Lindsey’s. She was our host for the next two nights. That girl is super cool, and her house was quite lively. There were two cats and a dog, and she had 7 housemates, so it was always busy. We walked to her local supermarket so she could show us some brews local to Oregon. We were curious to try many of them, so we took a bunch of 6-packs back, and started a game of Settlers of Catan. Needless to say, we had a great time!
