Weekend Roundup

 Another hot one here in Portland this weekend. I kept cool by drinking my fair share of liquids and traveling about town seeking out the cities breeziest/tastiest spots.
Started out Saturday proper with a bright, floral americano from Heart roasters.

I would live here, if they let me.

Off to Belmont Station for Puckerfest 2013 - a celebration of sour and wild ales, my favorite for summer! Friday night featured Cascade and Block 15 brewing. Cascade was my favorite of the weekend with their 'Kiss the Ginger' sour, made especially for the fest, brewed with ginger rye and blackcap raspberries. Perfection.

Saturday featured the Commons and Du Garde. Check out the weekend's menu here for more about the breweries and beers!
Hung a right over to Mount Tabor for a bike ride, some rays and the breeze.

Had to soak up some of that booze at Leroy's Familiar Vettles, a BBQ cart direction adjacent to the Landmark, which is basically my new favorite patio spot in town. Delicious ribs, brisket and mac n cheese.

Sunday morning egg, arugula and red pepper/jabanero jam bagel a la chef Nathan
Headed out for a walk and found some wild plums in a beautiful shade of citrine!
Beating the heat at Fifty Licks with some summertime cones.
Strawberry cilantro cheesecake! They make the ice cream the same day the berries are picked, which results in amazing, fresh strawbery flavor.
What did you you eat this weekend?
