I'm back, obvs, and it's hard to know where to start. I guess with this guy. Smiller overheard him tell a lady that he's an "abstract Apache" which is a perfect Kiedis line if I've ever heard one!We went to a lot of fun places in Ashland and Portland, but Kenny and Zukes Jewish deli in Portland was kind of like heaven on earth. Do you peep that pickle plate? House made green tomato pickles?! That sandwich was as big as my head and contained: delicious lean and smoky pastrami, creamy and dreamy chopped liver, coleslaw, and Russian dressing. I know that sounds over the top but it was very restrained.
This is Cork on Alberta, it's my favorite wine store ever along with Appellation in New York.
We ran into Teddy from What's Up on Alberta, he just moved to Portland from Sac. I mention it because What's Up is playing at Luigis with Zach Hill tonight.
