Our Chicago pals, plus two of their favorite couples, descended upon Portland last week for their big summer trip. We were lucky enough to join them for part of it - their final night in Portland and then a couple days on the coast in Cannon Beach, OR - before they headed to wine country to round out what sounded like an incredible trip overall. Geez, Portland, Beach, Wine country. Not a bad way to spend eight days with your best friends.
They stayed at the Ace Hotel in Portland and if you haven't been there I highly recommend it. The design and decor and the Stumptown Coffee in the lobby make for a great experience.
