Portland trip part deux: (well) over 21!

grayelf | Feb 2, 201504:05 PM     7

Thanks for your help on the G rated part of our upcoming visit here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/1001708 Now looking for feedback on the rest of the trip, when it'll be me and the SO = beer, cocktails, happy hours, bakeries... what's new?

Just noticed that Good Coffee has already opened up a second location at SE 12th and Salmon -- their Division store was only a popup when we visited in Oct 2014 but very good.

Also eye-ing the newest Case Study on Alberta, with its 12 ft coffee molecule chandelier (!). Did not realize they have been roasting at Mr Greenbeans up till now. Loved their cold brew on the Yama at the Sandy store in October, though may have to try a drip on the Kalita Wave. SO should enjoy the vintage Probat and try the Synesso Hydra, methinks.

Farina Bakery looks pretty worthy, and with Sterling coffee.

And because sometimes ya gotta kick it old school: Rimsky-Korsakoffee

Beerwise, Culmination Brewery which debuted mid-Jan but has an opening bash scheduled for Feb 28. Have to pay attention though as it's closed Sun-Tues.

Also wondering about Baerlic Brewing . Love the beer graveyard on their website. Wish the new Commons spot was ready but not till mid March I gather. And we still haven't made it to Hair of the Dog despite many glowing reports, so we'll need to fix that this trip.

And then there's Civic Taproom, and First National Taphouse, the first sans grub and the second with. So many choices, and that's without going back to old favourites.

Wine and Growl also looks intriguing. Fresh tasty food, 20+ taps of wine and beer.

Might have to sneak in a visit to Mint. Not new but I like the sound of fruit-forward cocktails. And the Avocado Daiquiri. And the Ad Lib, which is a cilantro lemon drop. And (wo)man cannot live by beer alone :-).

Happy hours that sound like they would make me happy include: Imperial, Ringside, Paley's Place, Lincoln, Clyde Common, Urban Farmer, Clarkelewis, Victory Bar (spaetzele!)

Other things: Bang Bang looks interesting if it's open, kind of a Pok Pok model?, and speaking of Andy Ricker, the menu at Whiskey Soda Lounge is calling to me. Maybe All-Way for old styley burger (though I'm still mad at Peter Bro for wrecking the burger at The Savoy), The Tardis Room at the Fish and Chip Shop on Killingworth, Gastromania at the Q19 pod in the NW, for either the foie burger or the porchetta sando, how about a reuben at the Goose Hollow Inn? or maybe happy hour at Ringside on Burnside (onion rings!)

I was considering the Alameda Cafe but it looks like the owners deep sixed Cameron Addy after only two months and are going family friendly.

Verdigris and Muscadine also tempting for our three "adult" dinners... so many options... spoiled...
