I t’s certainly been postcard weather here in Portland this week. I haven’t visited in four years and I’m absolutely wondering why the hell not. This is green, warm summer glory in the Northwest.

Old favorites have been first on the agenda since I got in on Tuesday: Ringler’s Annex, Floating World, and of course, Powell’s City of Books. Plus other Portland institutions like Voodoo Donuts, Eastside Deli, the Doug Fir Lounge and Kelly’s Olympian. And newer joints like Bunk Bar and Departure. Oh, and a beautiful afternoon yesterday out at Hagg Lake.

And now it’s onto the Pickathon!
