Road trip, day one

Got back a few days ago from our annual west coast road trip.

We stopped for lunch at Hair of the Dog Brewery in Portland. Funny place – much of the beer tended towards too sweet for me, but I liked the pale, and the fish sandwich on whole grain bread was very wholesome.

I kind of wanted to get the pork toast, just to say I had.

We stopped for the night in Ashland. It was a hot evening and all the restaurants had sidewalk tables out, but we ended up eating in the bar at Liquid Assets. Service was a little slow, but I had a good sazerac and we shared a very nice bottle of Willamette pinot.

Truffle popcorn was a bit overkill on the cheese front.

Jon got a mushroom carbonara which was excellent. I got the burger, which was like a drive-thru burger with extra fat. Really tasty, but highly indigestible. Oh well.

It was a lovely evening.
