Portland: McMenamins Market Street Pub

by gigi on June 10, 2010

While shopping in the Nordstrom Rack in Portland, I happened to run into Marlene. Lucky for me, she comes to Portland quite frequently and she recommended that Jenkins and I check out McMenamins Market Pub.

Portland: Voodoo Doughnuts
