Northwest Travel & Life Magazine: Stay in a Boatel

6 03 2019

The latest issue of Northwest Travel & Life features a story that was an awful lot of fun to research. Pick up a copy on newsstands now or click here to read the PDF version. From the article:

In the neverending quest to seek out unique lodging options, we Northwesterners can go to some great and enjoyable lengths. We’ve hiked to backcountry lodges, stayed in lofty treehouses, slept in lavish five-star resorts, and built cozy stove fires in primitive yurts. All proven options. And all in the name of experiencing this wonderful corner of the globe in new and exciting ways.

Yet somehow, while we weren’t looking, Boatels slipped into the mix. The practical melding of the words “boat” and “hotel,” a Boatel is essentially a floating overnight accommodation. Though typically in the form of a stationary houseboat there is some variance. While all have placement on the water in common, locations range from quiet coastal rivers teaming with wildlife to marinas that are just steps away from destination dining and shopping options. They can be vacation rentals or Airbnb’s. But unequivocally, every one of them offers a new perspective on the places we want to explore. Here are a few of our favorite Northwest Boatels.”

1859 Magazine: Po’Shines – Nourishing the Community’s Soul

13 11 2018

When I first started going to Po’Shines, it was because it was one of the best restaurants in North Portland. When the soul food eatery opened, it immediately became a favorite haunt for Kenton residents, followed quickly by the rest of town. But when I learned what was happening behind the pass, besides the best chicken & waffles around, it made me want to champion their cause even more. My latest for 1859 Magazine tells the story.
