Cirrus/Finnocciona Platter: a mini Cirrus (Pacific Northwest Camembert) cheese wheel that tasted similar to Brie, sliced hard salami, smoked almonds, and crackers. Because when you go wine tasting, you need food to keep you grounded.

One-two punch of a concert with the ever-lovely Made in Heights opening up for Tokimonsta! Man, Made in Heights does not get old. I think I could see them a third time. Tokimonsta was wearing full-on bike shorts (huh?). Aside from that travesty, her energy was quite captivating. So, the queue of concerts has temporarily come to a close. What next?

Close-up of the gum wall. The consequence of my curiosity was getting my feet stuck in the melted gum at the foot of the wall and scraping it off my shoes for the rest of the day lol.

The cutest beer flight :D From front to back: honey ginger lime, sang noir, apricot, and kriek. This was my first time trying sour beers, and I think I find them more tolerable than I do other beers (IPA’s being the prime evil of them all). Even though I don’t normally like beer, I still loved Portland and its zillion breweries. It really is a beer lover’s paradise. However, I think I will stick with their wide selection of ciders next time.
