The Best City In The Country

We pulled into Downtown Portland yesterday morning about 11:00. As soon as I heard the brakes pop, I was up and out the door, took a few deep breaths, and decided to go for a walk. This is hands down my favorite city in America. There is something about the air, the buildings, the people, the coffee. Everything works together to create such an amazing atmosphere.

Last night we were at the Crystal Ballroom. An amazing room on the third floor of a cool old building downtown. Our green rooms were on the second floor just down the hall from a brewing room, so the smell of hops, and beer filled the halls. On the first floor, a restaurant with pool tables and over 100 different beers, that are made upstairs.

Phil needs to be in San Diego tomorrow morning to play at a Youth Specialties Event, so after his set we hopped in my friends truck and took him to a hotel near the airport. We got back just as Crowder was finishing up and helped out with the meet and greet. By this time it was raining pretty hard so walking around the city wasn’t a good option, so we ended up just hanging out on the bus until late.

Today we are spending the day off in this amazing city. I have no idea what we are going to do but as long as I am out in the city it doesn’t matter. I think we may try to hit up Powell’s Books and then walk around until something strikes us. I will try to get some good pictures today and let you know how it goes.
