After some more walking around (and shopping!), we met up with Kat's friends for happy hour at Dragon Fish, where they have Sushi and Drink Specials every afternoon! It was SO much fun to hang out and meet new people! :) By 8 we were both exhausted from waking up at 5am that morning to catch our flights and walking around all afternoon so we took a dip in the Jacuzzi for a bit and called it a night! (I know we're SUCH party animals!) Oh and we also ordered Baby Mama, which I fell asleep about 1 hour into. Oh well, I didn't feel like I was missing out on much! hehe
The next morning, we joined a Walking Tour, where the guide took us through all the different neighborhoods in Downtown Portland and told us a bit about its history. It was REALLY interesting to learn about the city and how "GREEN" and "Public Transportation Friendly" it is compared to every where else! I mean, you could literally take the MAX Rail or bus ANYWHERE easily and you don't need to own a car at all! I know SF is a lot like that but you can't really go anywhere outside of Downtown without a car. Anyway, here we are at the Portland Theater. We were both so bundled up cuz it was pretty cold in the morning, especially standing in the shade listening to our Guide!
The rest of the day consisted of having lunch at Rock Bottom, checking out the Saturday Market and doing some more shopping. We went back to our hotel and had a light dinner there. It was another early night cuz we had another morning flight to catch back home. It was such a short trip but I'm SO glad we took it cuz I really do miss Kat a lot and these short weekend vacations are a perfect way for us to catch up AND explore somewhere new! :) Where to next Kat?
