I liked the joint. Not crowded- food prices good. Super nice waitress. Friend and I shared a chicken dish and I believe some oysters. Tasty.
Hey- if you are on Hawthorne and you want a pleasant, no-hassle experience- give Fado a try.
Portugese wine is a little different from Spanish and not over-priced at Fado.
Just throwing this out- but some of us are not foodies. Just want some reasonably priced, somewhat healthy food and a nice table by a window. I thought Fado's food was a little different, and would probably appeal to a fairly wide range of tastes if you are trying to please the in-laws.
By "back porch" he means overturned Burnside Cadillac. By "mimosas", he means a warm Old English. Agree with Tod MClen- this is fantasy fiction for losers.
What happened? Well, they are packing us into parts of Portland like sardines. This is your car-free density and it is pretty miserable. Vibrant? That means thin walls in your crappy studio. It means Piccolo Park near Clinton is filled with dog poop. And, thanks to our stupid city council, inner Portland will get more crowded. No parking apartment- no problem. Just park your car on the street. Then, allow your neighbors to operate a black market motel because- hey- we can never stuff too many people into Portland. Sorry if you don't like kids in Portland's over-priced restaurants. Some of us have backyards and we BBQ in peace. Suckas.
Studies suggest that big dogs may have carbon footprints similar to cars. And those studies just looked at the land necessary to grow food for one large dog. It did not look at the poop problem and other environmental problems caused by dogs. But ooh, we have to live in teeny tiny houses and commute by bicycle and then cancel out any environmental pluses by irresponsible pet choices.
But criticizing dog ownership is blasphemy in this town.
In regard to bike share sponsorship, we need to just admit it: PBOT lied. There is no
I think that Nick Caleb does more than "slightly" complicate Saltzman's re-election. He appears to have some support with the active transportation folks. Plus, he will get some "tired of incumbents" votes. He may not be a shoo-in, but he is far from being a fringe candidate.
Thanks for your reporting, Dirk. We can be bike-positive and still require honesty from Alta and PBOT.
I figure that if Alta and PBOT can't respond to the Mercury in ten seconds with the name- then there is no sponsor.
How dishonest does a vendor have to be before the City refuses to do business with that vendor?
