Had fun last night. Despite the rain, Brian and I walked to Bamboo Sushi. He hadn’t been there yet and I thought he’d like it. It’s hardcore on my list to take Michele to while she is here, it has more vegetarian rolls than any sushi place I’ve ever gone. We had two vegetarian rolls (Green Machine, 310) and two rolls with fish (Chasing the Dragon, The Local). Out of all that, I think the Green Machine is still my favorite, and I might try it with tuna sometime. We sat at the sushi bar, which I prefer and drank Bridgeport. Was pretty awesome – rain, sustainable fish, Bridgeport. Made me happy.
On the walk home we stopped in at Beulahland where I had a New Belgium IPA (yuck. There really isn’t a New Belgium beer I like so I need to stop trying) and Brian drank an Old German. We hung out there for a while and then decided to stop in at Spints to check it out. We will definitely be heading there for lunch one of these days – it looks like their lunch menu might have more for me to eat (they have an extremely meat-laden menu).
It’s been pretty cold and rainy here – we broke several all-time records in Portland last week for cold temperatures – so it was really great to get out on a longer walk. And walking through our neighborhood on a Sunday night in the rain is amazing (air is so fresh, and the light filtering through the 80 – 100 year old trees, wow, and streetlights reflecting off the street). I need to start walking more than I have been while I’ve been in school. It’s so good for me, my attitude improves and hopefully it will help me lose the next five pounds.
