Kitchen Nightmares .... back to Amy's Baking Company

Amy's messed up life is not her husband's fault. She did time in federal prison for ID theft & credit fraud. Before she even met Mr ATM.

I'll have a 3-hour layover each way. Any suggestions inside or outside the airport?
Thanks

How long do Pinot Noirs last?

Three years ago had my parents over for dinner, they brought a 1980 Sokol Blossor PN, it was fine.

Restaurants not having websites only Facebook

I don't mind what they have, as long as it's updated.
Nice thing about Facebook: no music, easy to navigate, no flash.

Visiting Portland, dinner at Pok Pok

Yes! Thanks for the specials report. The fiddlehead ferns have just come into season, and I saw them yesterday at Portland Farmers Market.
I've never had to wait at Pok Pok,

Shady business practice?

I've seen 5%, not 10.

Thanks for the reminder. I go to Accanto all the time. Details? What did you have?

The Chatty Bagger at the Grocery Store

I'm sure he will be so grateful for the idea. This never happens to him, no doubt.

The Chatty Bagger at the Grocery Store

Is the store truly high end, or is it "high end"?

The Chatty Bagger at the Grocery Store

She may be "friendly" but asking questions about your medical condition is just plain rude. You're doing her no favors by not telling management. If she doesn't modify her behavior she'll be out of a job.

Driving to Grants Pass, OR from Redding, CA

Best stop is Ashland. Depending on time of day, you have wide choices. I like Brothers for breakfast/brunch.

1 Portland, 2 Willamette (solo)

What does "Willamette" mean? Willamette Valley is around 5000 square miles.

Picnic Supplies Along the Oregon Coast?

As in pay through the nose! I can't take seriously any cheese shop that also offers a petting zoo.

Picnic Supplies Along the Oregon Coast?

Ecola Seafood in Cannon Beach. Blue Heron is kind of a tourist trap, but could have some supplies.

What are your thoughts of this restaurant corkage fee policy?

It's called fraud.

Portlandia by the restaurant

While it is satire, it sometimes veers into docudrama when it comes to Portland food & drink!

Redwood was good not great. Went there because we weren't feeling the wait at Country Cat. If at all possible, try the latter. The earlier the better.

Chef Naoko (not Naoka). Tasty & authentic Japanese cooking. Have taken Japanese friends there who know the real deal (food editors/educators) who loved it too.
