It’s about time. Often, I buy beverages solely based on their packaging. Surely I’m not alone in this?
Weekend Stop at Stumptown.
I know that everyone likes Stumptown coffee, but I think their hot chocolate is the best.
I have a total soft spot for Gremlins – they’re little, awkward and the gas tank in the back cracks me up. There’s this middle-aged hispanic woman in my neighborhood that burns out of the Plaid Pantry parking lot sometimes in the most amazing Gremlin of all-time: sparkly green paint job, monsterous racing slick tires and massive flames painted along the sides. I totally wish she’d take me for a spin sometime.
Project status: Complete.
I spent pretty much every waking hour this week working on a book for Downtown Portland with the North team, complete with custom embossed covers – I’m super happy with how it turned out.
Cutest sign ever.
I am in love with the logo for Breken Kitchen, a cafe in N.W. The walls inside are perfectly matched to that same green – I love it when businesses go the extra mile with those little details.
You can’t be serious.
When I was sitting at Stumptown this weekend, this bike rider’s getup totally caught my eye. Skin tight? Check? Hearts? Check. Outfit matches your wife’s? Check. Golden.
Someone’s a barfly.
When we go to the coffee shop in the morning and walk Rocky, we always pass a trashy restaurant / bar on the corner. The side door is usually open and Rocky for some reason loves to try and wander in. I don’t blame him – the dart boards, collection of 3 foot tall trophies and Ozzy blaring are all pretty hard to resist. Nice sign, too:
Until next week,
