Field Trip Report: the Bite of Oregon

fry bread with HuckleberriesSorry Farmer John.

Music won out on the Sunday night schedule battle. I was not prepared to turn down the temptation that is Patti Smith performing at a Special Olympics benefit after all. Is Portland amazing or what?

Oh yeah, and there was food

Patti Smith with huckleberries, fry bread, corn chowder, and fresh blueberry soda.

It was a good weekend.

Yep, Portland is pretty amazing. I’m envious…in a
really big way.

Blueberry soda eh? I’ve never had it, but I have had blueberry juice and I love it!

Oh my … I don’t blame you for your choice at all. I have a special “Patti/Patty” mix on my iTunes: Patty Scialfa, Patti Smith, Patty Griffin and Patty Larkin. Heaven.

I thought the Farmer John screening was on Saturday… regardless, I missed it. The Bite was worth it though. Hard to believe this is the first time I’ve been since moving to Portland eight years ago. Still haven’t been to the Rose Festival…

Hey Jen, don’t leave Scandal (led by Mrs. John McEnroe herself, Patty Smyth) off your iPod!
