Before we begin, some items to consider:
- According to the Oregon Craft Beer website, Portland’s 56 breweries (76 in the metro area) constitute the greatest number of breweries of any city in the world.
- In 2012, Bicycling Magazine proclaimed Portland “America’s Best Bike City.”
- Although Portland does sport the smallest city park in the world, the city’s Vera Katz Park, at 750 square feet (my estimate, which includes a sidewalk down the middle), is darn close.
Okay. Now we can talk about the cocktail hour that Louise and I share almost every evening.
