I got this fun list from Jess’ blog and couldn’t resist. If you’ve never been to Port­land, you could rename this “100 Rea­sons to Jump on a Train, Plane or Auto­mo­bile and Get My Butt to Portland!”

Here’s how it works:

1) Copy this list into your own blog, face­book or web­site, includ­ing these instruc­tions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never con­sider eat­ing.
4) Post a com­ment here once you’ve fin­ished and link your post back to this one.
5) Pass it on!

    seri­ously, who said Port­land veg­ans are broke? or does all our money just go to our temptations…
