But once again, the weather was a tad too cold for my delicate sensibilities, so we decided instead to head downtown for brunch and a movie.
We had brunch at a great spot called Mother's,
After brunch we walk a few blocks,
After the movie, as the sun had come out and the afternoon weather had warmed up a bit, we walked around downtown Portland for a while,
We had a dinner date with Romaine’s Portland Posse, a group of her friends who call themselves Second Wednesday because they all get together every second Wednesday for dinner, taking turns picking out a restaurant, preferably someplace new and interesting.
Now, technically, this past Wednesday wasn’t the second Wednesday of the month, but since I was in town Romaine asked the other Second Wednesday members who could make it if they’d mind making an exception this month, which nobody did.
As it was Romaine’s turn to pick the restaurant she picked a place that she’d been to one time before, a great little ramen place near downtown called Boke Bowl.
Sometimes you just have to go for it.
