Portland is sunny in February. It’s been 60 degrees, and yesterday, I didn’t wear any socks. Of course, today I woke up with a cold, but that’s a price I’m willing to pay. I am also delighted to report that Mark Eitzel has joined us for the West Coast leg, and you can look forward to seeing his face in the upcoming days. I am even MORE delighted to report that we ate the best meal of the tour thus far. Photo below. I think we’re going back for lunch.
My close personal friend Doris Day.
We found Darren wandering the streets, suspiciously close to the pinball arcade.
Blue arcade. Blue sky.
The dressing room at the Aladdin, as modeled by John Woo.
I didn't pack any sunglasses.
If you turned Mike inside out, he would turn into Stephin. Or something.
Marquee, sunlight. 60 degrees, people!
ATTN: BEST MEAL OF THE TOUR. If you're in PDX, go to POK POK. Hallelujah.
Nothing is more Orch-Folk than a whole family having a hootenanny.
Old friends and new friends and friends names Zebra.
Not sure what this was supposed to mean, but it was tough.
Also, we found a typewriter that typed in cursive.
Seduced and Abandoned. Well done, Shirley.
And finally, these hats are on sale because the Tourganizer stopped wearing them - sparking a nationwide reduction in the trend. Thanks, Claudia Cam.
More photos forthcoming from the Shirley cam! The Claudia cam! And other cams!
See you tonight, Portland. Any and all suggestions for daytime activities can be sent to us here or @mpluse on Twitter.
