Amazing plant based menu that never disappoints. Juice, smoothies, gluten-free and vegan menu. A really special restaurant that two gals started as a food cart, which is now this beautifully remodeled brick and mortar on Hawthorne; which says something about the staying power of their product. 5 stars.

Tasty tasty ramen noodles. And if you like fried oysters, this is THE spot. $5 for a side that comes with the best housemade mustard. This, folks, is an original Portland restaurant. This is how we do it here in Portland. And Izzy and I often saw the owner at the yoga studio and practiced alongside him, so he has it all figured out, or attempting to anyway. bokebowl.com

ok. I can't say enough about this place. It is new (opened in the fall 2016), and their brewers collaborate with other brewers/breweries and everything we have drank thusfar is beer perfection. Adding to their great beer is the place itself. It is in a renovated industrial building so it is uber-cool to hang out here. Exposed brick and old growth beams. Plus their fried oysters and brussel sprouts are excellent. Just down the way from the lil house. I have walked here, but I definitely didn't want to walk home after 2 beers. Uber it. Or hop on the #14 bus back to the lil house.

Very Pacific Northwest. The Woodsman is next door to the ORIGINAL Stumptown coffee. And, very importantly, it is owned by the folks who started Stumptown.

Portland original, very cool part of Portland. Very excellent reputation among beer folks. You can walk here. I have done it. But some might want to take the #4 bus. Or rent a bike and head through the Ladd's Addition neighborhood. You can rent a bike through Portland's bike rental Biketown, pick one up on 36th and Hawthorne and make this your destination. Grab a snack on the way because you can bring outside food into this establishment.

Get this. No one works here. Yup, all on-your-honor. You open the door with your credit card, and then there are 6-8 taps of kombucha to sample and purchase on their ipad by swiping your credit/debit card.

Look at their menu online if you are craving ramen. I guess it is the absolute bomb. My 14-yr-old daughter posted a picture of her boxer ramen on her IG and it looks beautiful. I have not been here, but she keeps talking about. She will be contemplative and then pipe up and say, I love Boxer Ramen. It made a deep impression on her. This is downtown, so make a day of it. Powell's books and Patagonia (if budget allows) is close to here and other very unique Portland shopping (all sales tax free!)

A renovated high school turned into business offices and a music venue. Summer nights on the rooftop patio are a treasure. Daily happy hour in Martha's Cafe can't be beat from 3p-6p. Great tap list. You can take the #15 bus that runs along SE Belmont Street, get off around SE 12th Ave, and walk north towards Rev Hall/Martha's. Located on a giant piece of property and a large portion of open lawn is now an unofficial dog park. If you want to drink beer and watch cute dogs, go here.

Voted one of the best bars in America by Esquire, and All About Beer magazine gives this pub a nod. The beer list is impressive, with deep connections to rarely distributed beer. This is an old-school Portland staple, a proper English pub serving a 20 ounce pint. It is darkly lit, and there are a dedicated bunch of loyalists. Order a 1/2 order of fish and chips, they don't disappoint. But keep in mind that this is dark and booze-y. One of Iz's favorite spots, but I like my beer served in smaller portions.

Call ahead for a reservation for this very special place, and Google image it before you leave to inspire you, the wall display of whiskey bottles is mind-blowing, and exciting. You can catch the #14 bus on SE 50th and Mill street, cross 50th Ave so you are headed towards Hawthorne and that #14 bus will take you downtown to SW 5th and Madison. You will then have a short walk through downtown to 11th and SW Alder.

If you care to be inspired by design, not the new-construction design, but the kind of design that takes deeply soaked creativity because a century-old space has flaws and impracticalities, but here the flaws are highlighted and celebrated. I spent 10 minutes standing in this space soaking in all the design decisions. The scene is young and artistic, but I felt at home and I am middle-aged and scientific lol. Take the #15 bus (on Belmont) towards downtown and get off right before bus crosses the Morrison bridge. Then walk north on Grand Ave, it is two blocks south of Burnside on SE Grand Ave.

Spanish inspired bar with fantastic happy hour all day Sunday.
Really cool small sweet bar. They win the award for the bathroom-most-wanted-by-my-beer-loving-husband (Iz). No food served but the crowd here is very chill and the bartender has been here for years. Zero attitude. Sweet spot. You can take the #15 on Belmont down to 14th Ave or so. Walk north to Stark Ave.

I have to include this spot, because I have taken a major left turn into the sour beer market. So much to learn, so I will leave it up to you to Google it, but in general a sour is a beer with an intentional invasion of a wild yeast. Total mayhem, but truly a craft. Careful, these are expensive and addicting. On Tuesdays they celebrate a new barrel by tapping it, letting amateurs put in the tap. Look at their IG video footage of this. Some hilarious mishaps, as the wooden keg is on its side.

Parks & Nature
Take a nature walk from the lil house to Mt Tabor park, which is a dormant volcanic vent. Find the park entrance on 60th Ave/Lincoln. Which is a simple walk east from the lil house. Follow all the trails to the top, elevation 636 ft, so a ~400 ft climb, where (if you're lucky it's a clear day) you'll find a stunning view of the city on one side and a view of Mt Hood on the other. Walking distance from the lil house.

Dodge ball tournaments on Monday nights (summer) in the tennis courts, and the occasional flame throwers and slack liners hang out here throughout the week. This is the ultimate Portland hipster park. Walking distance from the lil house.

Take the bus here, folks. It is the best way to get out to Mulnomah Falls Friday through Sunday, as the parking lot often fills up during the weekends. The bus service is new due to car crowding (boooo) and you can get all the info on how to catch the bus ($5 ride fair) on http://columbiagorgeexpress.com

I am putting this fabric store in here because well, because, um, actually I am not sure. But the selection is huge, and if you are a creator, this place is likely to inspire you. I always get excited about the replicated 1930's fabrics, the color combinations are cute as a bug's ear (phrase from the '30s). This is a driving situation. Located east of here, on the corner of SE 122nd Ave and SE Stark Street.

Knot Springs offers a luxurious spa experience with fabulous views from the soaking pools. The setting is divine. If you go, notice the bohemian custom macrame installation on the ceiling by local artist Emily Katz. This spa is 5-star quality. You start with an exfoliating shower and then embark on soaking in a very clean (I am particular!) series of pools with varying temperatures. Ending with a cold plunge and then sauna and steam baths. The drop-in fee is $55, but worth it as you will sleep like a log. knotsprings.com Located in NE Portland, at the base of the Burnside bridge. I believe they validate parking, mention parking when you make the appointment. (+ they offer massages).

Fabulous spot for drop-in Scandinavian sauna and steam bath. Check the website because there are gender-specific times/days. You can add-on Dr. Hauschka facial treatments. $26 drop-in for two hours, which includes robe, towel, soap and shampoo/conditioner. This is just down Division street, to SE 21st Ave. You might want to drive or Uber/Lyft, as you will be super relaxed after this experience.
