Catch-Up


Apologies folks. We skipped town for a few days and didn't even have the common courtesy to let you know in advance. How lucky we were to be able to escape to San Francisco in order to celebrate Mark's (aka the "Computer God") 60th birthday, and to spend time with family, many of whom we haven't seen in nearly a decade, not to mention some whom we had never met! A truly wonderful experience. Oh, and the food and drink in SF ain't too shabby either.

Monday night we arrived back home in Portland. Every time we have the opportunity to get away, I am reminded just how amazing things are here in our hometown. We are so lucky to have so many talented people who sacrifice everything for the common good, not to mention our own crew. Oh, our staff...we are truly grateful for all that they do. They hold down the fort (LRBC) while we are away, and never cease to amaze us in the many ways they surpass our expectations when they take matters into their own hands (i.e. the Pineapple Pico de Gallo for this past weekend's Huevos Rancheros, not to mention a Turkey, Blue Cheese, and Radicchio Melt that gained so much popularity, we had to hold it around for an encore performance this week). So here's to the crew, and all their hard work...

...their beautiful art which always inspires...

...all the amazing coffee, delivered to us by bike...

...stealth documentation of our ever expanding customer base...

...shredding cheese, an endless endeavor in this house...

...keeping said coffee "dialed in"...

...and working to ensure we are always fully stocked in order to serve you lovely folks...

...thanks LRBC Crew, we are so lucky to have you in our lives! XO

I was wondering how you were since I love to read your blog(but please don't feel pressure that you need to write a blog everyday). Glad to hear you guys had a great time in SF.
Looking forward to visiting your place sometime soon to try yummy food:-)
