Northwest Travel & Life: Spring Escapes to Portland’s Eastside Industrial District

21 02 2017

In the latest issue of Northwest Travel & Life, I recommend things to do and places to eat and drink in one of Portland’s more explorable new districts. From the article:

“Portland’s Central Eastside Industrial District (CEID) was once devoid of coveted urban treasures like authentic ethnic cuisine, craft cocktails, and coffee roasters. But just like the Pearl District before it, thanks to Portlanders’ genius at repurposing stuff, like neighborhoods, the CEID is now teeming with food, drink, and entertainment hotspots. As Portland’s famous roses bloom in spring, the streets are once again enlivened with cyclists and pedestrians, hopeful with the promise of sunshine and patio seating. Come curious, come hungry, come thirsty, and be ready to indulge in one of Portland’s coolest new destination neighborhoods. Here are our picks for a perfect CEID getaway.”
