Portland Road Trip to see The Lost Boys Live!
We drove south on I-5 from Seattle. At Longview, WA, we headed into Oregon via the Columbia River Highway (#30). It made the last hour of the trip less boring because we’d never taken that road before.
We checked into the Hotel Monaco in Downtown Portland. Thanks to my Visa card rewards program, the room was free 🙂
Our room was a King Suite.
I really loved the decor of the bathroom.
From 5-6 pm, the hotel offers complimentary wine and beer tasting.
After that, we walked a few blocks to eat dinner at the Veggie Grill.
The Veggie Grill is all vegan. There are multiple locations in California, Oregon and Washington.
I ordered the All Hail Kale Salad because Mariann (from the Our Hen House podcast) keeps talking about how good it is. (She’s right!)
Eric ordered the All-American Stack.
Finally, we were off to the main event of the weekend:
We saw the closing night show of The Lost Boys – Live at the Ethos/Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center. My sister’s friend Michael played the part of David.
Oh, MY– I didn’t expect to laugh soooo hard! My cheeks were sore before the middle of the show. Hysterical!
Look, if everything that Bad Reputation Productions does is this good, then I’ll definitely be back for a future show!
Before we left Portland on Sunday morning, we stopped for some espresso at Public Domain Coffee.
