One of my favorite happy hours in Portland… it is rare when Lisa and I are on the east side and able to take advantage, but Sunday night we just happened to be in the area after listening to a vocal concert. The happy hour offerings include drinks and food specials like these massive nachos! $5 plus another $3 for chicken, steak or pork carnitas. Yum!
Lisa found this cool little breakfast and lunch spot, located just a fifteen minute walk along the promenade from our hotel. The food was delish!
I went with the beef sliders and one arepa
Lisa opted for the spicy shrimp and grits
No visit to Minneapolis is complete without stopping at the Mall of America. We had been here about three or four years ago when we took the train across America. Always find you just walk around and window shop and of course take in some eating.
Disco Fries. A tad disappointing since they were "out" of the menu choices we wanted, so we settled for our second choices. They say I got the fish and chips and I got the American sliders.
Huge Lego creations near the mall's center
For dessert, Lisa had a hankering for a simple A&W root beer float. Unfortunately she had a bit of trouble mixing up the ice cream and root beer without having it spill all over the place.
On our previous visit, I sampled some of this popcorn but didn't buy any. I made the mistake of buying it this time, which was an epic fail since I became quite sick from eating too much on these two humongous bags
We arrived into Minneapolis just after noon today, and after checking into our hotel it was time to eat a late lunch…
Just a five-minute walk away from our hotel in the Lower Town District, I really had a delicious lunch at Golden's Deli
We ordered this steak sandwich with au jus and French fries
The place has been around San Diego weekend events like farmer's markets and craft markets, in addition to having music and very funky and functional space
For dinner, we ate at the Afro Deli on a Groupon deal I purchased, which included an appetizer, two entrees, one dessert baklava and two drinks for $16. This place was a winner!
And to cap off the evening, Lisa got a little beverage to enjoy back in the hotel room…
