Portlander Problems #13

1. My first time at this restaurant was awesome.  Colin Meloy was sitting at a table near us, there was a minimal wait, and my food was really good.  The second time (years later) was terrible. We waited two hours to be seated, they served me cold mac and cheese, and the waitress poured water all over my lap.
2. I'm getting tired of people saying the phrase "Put a bird on it."
3. I still like putting birds on stuff.

I will post yours one of these coming weeks.  E-mail me at


  1. I had a very similar experience at that restaurant. it seems like here in PDX nothings stays a secret for long and when it gets out the service and quality of that place goes out the door. maybe its the same in any city....

  2. haha the last two. i love them.

  3. Ha! I knew which restaurant before I followed your link. I think it was the mac & cheese that gave it away. It's been a mixed bag in my experience as well.

  4. these are so funny:) i swear though, portland's such a fun city i think i'd put up wtih these headaches and more just to spend time in it:)

  5. This list was so funny. That's the only skit I remember from the episodes of Portlandia (untrue- I still use "cacao" to drive my husband crazy!) I watched, but I LOVE birds, and I LOVE stuff with birds on it. If that makes me uncool, so be it.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, I really appreciated it. You have a lovely family, and I love your hair!

  6. OMG...I new it was that restaurant before I even clicked on the link. DITTO haven't been back in awhile. oh and i looooooooooooooooooove birds too so there :)

  7. OMG I would die if I ate dinner near Colin Meloy. My husband and I used to see them back when and once saw his solo show and developed huge crushes on him. Montage is cool, though, too bad you had a bad experience!! Hope they get better!


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
