Weekend is a bit of a misnomer -- we'll be in town all day Friday and Saturday, arriving late-ish on Thursday and leaving early on Sunday. We're on East Coast time so the Thursday night meal might be scrapped.
Thursday night: Biwa
Friday am: quick breakfast -- voodoo donuts?
Friday lunch: food carts -- looking at Chozas and Asian Station
Friday afternoon -- in Pearl District, visit Sahagun and Ten-01 for happy hour
Friday dinner -- Pok pok (a bit distant from our hotel, is it worth it?)
Saturday am: brunch at Screen Door -- if we get there right at 9am can we avoid a wait? We will probably wake up on East Coast time so shouldn't be a problem
post-brunch, walk around Farmers Market
Saturday afternoon -- Silk Pho Van for happy hour if we're downtown (we might be at the Japanese Garden so good to know if it's worthwhile -- we could go instead of Ten 01 on Friday)
Saturday dinner -- reservations at Olea
Sunday early am -- anything worth grabbing at the airport?
Thanks for your hints and advice, Portlanders!
