Urban Omnibus has created a list of 50 ideas for new cities. Each idea links to a related article. The first idea, Combat climate change by adapting our existing building stock, relates to this article. The list is part of an online project from the Architectural League to create a new kind of conversation about design in New York City, but the ideas can be applied to any city.
The list can be found here and an article explaining the list can be found here.
One of my fave parts of traveling is getting to try new foods! I also love splurging a little on foods I wouldn’t have in my normal life.
My BF and I spent nearly a week in the Pacific Northwest and we had some great food!! We stayed in Vancouver, Wash. with the BF’s sister and her fam. But we spent a lot of time in Portland, Ore. where I have some friends. We also made a day trip to Cannon Beach, Ore.
Here is our food crawl across the PNW…
Bread and Ink Cafe, 3610 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
I had the Black Bean Cakes with Poached Eggs and Fruit Salsa. It was so incredible!!! I loved every moment of this. The combination of black beans, the runny eggs and fruit was perfection.
The homemade ketchup that was served with the potatoes was also delish, sweet and tangy.
BF had the Grilled Salmon Sandwich with wasabi aioli, which was also quite delish!
