Had lunch with #minicartwhisperer today and she picked Italian Market. We both agreed, those meatballs should be called “AMAZEBALLS.” (at The Italian Market)
FEAST Portland is less than 2 months away. If the event you had your eye on has sold out, consider volunteering. Read more in my blog post (link in bio).

If you’ve never heard “Pass The Peas” off this album, for God’s sake, take a minute and thirty seconds to do so on iTunes or somewhere else. The very first time I heard it, I was driving in the middle of the night from Monterey to Montecito to see my girlfriend. I was driving down Cuesta Grade in San Luis Obispo and feeling a little tired. This song came on and blew my entire mind. A few years later in 1994, I got to catch Maceo along with Fred Wesley at Berbati’s Pan in Portland. I stood about 5 feet away from the stage just mesmerized in the funk. I listen to a lot of music but I always have a place for James Brown and the J.B.s.
#tbt Getting ready to catch the train from San Luis Obispo to Santa Barbara. Wish I still had that damn suitcase.
I went Gnudi yesterday. Read more in my blog-url in bio. (at Burrasca PDX)
I first had this beer years ago after a visit to Belmont Station. I don’t get to BS too often but I ALWAYS look for this beer. It’s a fairly small run and seasonal so I usually strike out. I walked in to BS Thursday and this was staring me in the face. I feel like I won the beer lottery. This has got to be my favorite beer on the planet. Can’t wait to crack this open later-so damn good! (at Casa de Ferrero)
A little juicy chat with Ima Blueberry and I got my hands on Black Raspberries from Unger Farms. Berry Fest goes on til 5 or 6 tonight. (at LifeWise Oregon Berry Festival)
