We started our day off right at The Original “dinerant.” Jay had steak & eggs and I hand polenta cakes. Super yummy!

Next we went on to a cool neighborhood that had hipster shops and many breweries. I got my haircut (which I had been dying to do!). We also went to the Japanese Gardens uptown. We took so many pictures with our little Polaroid and only a few on our phones. The weather is glorious here today by the way.

For lunch we stopped at Clyde Common for delicious pork rillettes, a bacon sandwhich and a fish sandwhich.

We ended our night at A Taste of Portland at the Crystal Ballroom and sampled many small plates, beers and liquor. We got some swag bags for buying VIP tickets too! 🙂
We are in love with Portland and the gorgeous weather we had today.

Los Gauchos Taqueria (Columbus’ best Al Pastor)

Los Gauchos Taqueria has the best Tacos Al Pastor in all of Columbus and I can say they were better than any Taco Al Pastor we tried in Texas. We missed Los Guachos terribly when we were in Waco. We’ve been visiting frequently to get BOGO free Al Pastor Tacos on Monday nights. Jay has tried the tongue and tripe tacos as well and really liked them. The employees are friendly and you have to try the habanero condiment on the tables. I usually only eat the red onions from the habanero bowl but it is super spicy and a perfect compliment to the Al Pastor taco’s sweet slice of pineapple.

Enjoy!
