In the Gift Shop- Train T-shirts! And if you're over the whole train thing, one sleepy cat shirt.....
On the same property you'll see a set of these classic cars. I was excited and ready to hop a fence to try my luck at finding a way in to take some cool photos. Turns out, these guys are actually home to several small businesses including Cascade Web Development.
As we walked back to the car we heard music pumping and laughter. Looking up the street we could see people jerking around (we both thought maybe it was a bunch of drunk kids trying to have a danceoff). Turns out it was much, much, much more awesome... and that's how we found out that A) Basecamp Brewing has covered their outdoor space with an awesome, all-weather tent and B) Human Foosball is totally a thing and totally awesome.
We ended the day by heading over to the palace of nerds, Guardian Games to browse tabletop games Garrett has been dreaming of buying and await the final surprise: Dungeons and Dragqueens. And while nobody is going to accuse this little show of being overly rehearsed or even really seeming to remember where the story is supposed to go next, it was a cute idea and you know nerds are strong supporters of all things nerdy.
If you're hoping to see more of these types of wild mini-adventures check out my sister's travel blog Graveyard Shift Travel where she explores and writes about Portland with the know-how of a local and the child-like enthusiasm of an 18 year old recent high-school grad getting laid by the hot guy staying at the same travel hostel on their first trip out of the US.
