Road Trip (Part 1)

Woo-Hoo! Celine and I have made it to Portland! I can't wait to meet all of you people in real life!

I forgot my camera cord, so you will have to wait until I get home to post the pictures, SORRY!

We were in San Francisco, Saturday night, where we had an early dinner (Celine had a hefty sandwich, while I treated myself to a Shawarma Wrap) at Herbivore, where we had the opportunity to briefly meet up with Melisser of Urban Housewife, and then hopped on the bus to get ice cream at Maggie Mudd (Um, can you say over 10 vegan varieties to choose from?) Sunday Morning we had breakfast at Herbivore (it was right next to our hotel!) and headed over to Jordan's to pick up our freshly made dozen of glazed raised Donuts!!!

Then it was on the road again. We drove up the coast, and made it to Eureka by sundown. We walked to the Lost Coast Brewery, where we noshed on tofu burgers, fries, and tangerine beer, before conking out for the night. We headed off early in the morning, and stopped in Arcata for breakfast at the Wildflower Cafe. A very pretty and friendly hippie chick was more than happy to serve us our french toast and blueberry pancakes with a smile.

We finally arrived in Portland to our gracious hosts, Kurt and June, who whisked us away to Dove Vivi for some much needed and very delicious vegan pizza. We ordered both kinds, and between the 4 of us, finished all but 2 pieces!

I have a feeling our bellies will be very happy over the next four days! I can't wait to meet up with you guys on Thursday night, at after we finish filming with Julie Hasson for Everyday Dish.

More to come...hopefully with Pictures

Hello! I just found your blog- love it! I lived in Portland for five years and lived within walking distance of Proper Eats: I love their food and love what they stand for. (I ate there before I was even vegan!)
Thanks for the great posts.

Man, I wish I would have made it to Portland with you two! It was nice meeting briefly though!
