My neighborhood (Kerns basically in NE Portland) is almost perfect. Here's why:
  1. Church (the bar on Sandy)
    Good Happy Hour drinks, seats outside, less than a block from my house.
  2. Jasmine Pearl Tea Shop
    They have this thing called "Tea Soda" and also are approx 1 block from my house.
  3. Crema
    The Kickstart is the top breakfast sandwich in town and sometimes you can spot famous poets if you're the kind of person who thinks it's possible for poets to be famous.
  4. The Sudra
    The best Indian place in town is across the street from me, nbd.
  5. Tapalaya
    This place seems weird and a little hokey but turns out Nola tapas is a delicious proposition.
  6. Kerns Kitchen
