Adventure Time: Portland Weekend

Pretty Portland

A few weeks ago, Chris, Melissa and I went up to Portland to see Joel (Melissa's fiance) in Midsummer Nights' Dream at the Portland Center Stage. We spent the weekend exploring the Autumnal Paradise that is Portland!

We walked around the city, stopped in a ton of little shops, ate lots of delicious food, and generally enjoyed the cool, rainy weather.

We met Wil!

We went to Ground Kontrol, and amazing arcade and bar that serves grilled cheeses, and ran into Wil Wheaton. It was like nerd paradise!

It was a great weekend.

And PS, Joel proposed to Melissa the day after we left! Love in Portland! 


  1. Barcades are the best! There was one I went to all the time last year in Tacoma. They're good, clean, nerdy fun.

    I'm glad you had fun in the PNW. It looks like it was a good trip.

    1. Next time we're coming to see YOU!

  2. D'awwwh! Looks like a fun time :) My guy and I are going to Portland this spring for his old roomie's wedding!

    1. You're going to love it! Yarn on every corner!

  3. You hit all my favorite spots in Portland. Hope while you were at Ground Kontrol you played Lord of the Rings Pinball - can't begin to tell you how many quarters I've poured into that machine.

    1. You're a Portlander? I knew that I knew bloggers from there, but I couldn't think of who! Next time I'll hit you up for suggestions. ;)

  4. ahhhhhhhhhhh! so glad you went! you guys stopped at some of our favorite spots! i knew youd love it ;) we hope to go back in the next year or so...
