#ThursdayToursPDX {Entertaining Out-of-Towners}

Thursday, October 29, 2015

Y'all how is this weekend Halloween?? After a weekend of shenanigans, candy and costumes the Holidays will officially be upon us. Which also means entertaining guests. Something that is really fun, but also a bit stressful. Trying to find spots or activities that all of your guests will love can be very hard. That is why Erin and I have enlisted Meg (Landing Standing) and Rachel (Love, Rachel) to share their recommendations for entertaining out-of-towners!

Meg and her husband Tony are East Coast transplants, and with that comes many visitors! Having traveled the world (and blogging all about it) they are skilled at finding the best spots in any city. Meg is also a really fun lady and always down for a good time. 

Be sure to stop by Bakery Bingo for Rachel's Recommendations!

Bollywood - If your guests like Indian food, Bollywood is a great place for out-of-towners. It’s hipster meets Indian street food. This uber casual order-at-the-counter spot has a funky decor, the dishes are fresh and unique, and the prices are great. I love their Pork Vindaloo and Lamb Samosas. Bollywood has two locations, but the Division location is my favorite, especially during the summer when their outdoor patio is open.

Kennedy School - Kennedy School is a Portland landmark. I really don’t think other cities have anything like Kennedy School - and there is something here for everyone. We love going in the evening on a weekend when the place is hoppin’. Grab a drink in The Honors Bar, walk around the school (with a drink in hand), and maybe check out one of their movies. We’re huge fans of the movie theatre, as you can order drinks there (even an entire bottle of vino!) and enjoy the show on one of their vintage lounge chairs or sofas.

PSU Farmer’s Market - This is hands down the best farmers market I have been to in the US. There’s SO much fresh produce here and you can get a great preview of Oregon’s finest artisans. While you are soaking up the goodness of the market, be sure to visit the Pine State Biscuits stand and order the Chatfield. Trust me, the line is WORTH IT.

Multnomah Whiskey Library - If you’re looking for a Portland experience, Multnomah Whiskey Library is hipster at it’s finest. We love the old-school decor of the library and the tableside cocktail service is a really fun experience. The whiskey menu here is incredible (it literally is the size of small novel) and the bartenders are extremely talented. Their Old Fashioned is the best in town - and they even make wonderful non-whiskey drinks. I love how the bartenders will also make custom drinks specific to your unique taste!

#ThursdayToursPDX is a collaborative series between Portland, OR bloggers {Erin} Bakery Bingo + {Meredith} Martha Chartreuse. In a city filled with amazing restaurants, artisan experiences, and fantastic tastemakers the inside scoop is a must. We will be asking our friends and fellow bloggers for their recommendations and tips for all the City of Roses has to offer.
