I'm sitting here in my beloved neighborhood bar, Tiga. Thinking about how much beer one city could possibly produce. Last I heard we were running neck and neck with Cologne for the "most breweries within city limits in the world" award. Yep, some cities have world-class museums. Some have world-class corporate power (holding nose). Some have monumental cityscapes reaching in vain for the sky. All of our "indicators" seem to be pointing in a different direction. May I raise a beer to that?

Anyways, I've been taking advantage of the recent spell of dry weather by avoiding the indoors as much as possible.

On Sunday, I took advantage of the light and the first 50 degree day since early November (ouch) to ride around sans winter coat. I ended up poking around Harriet Tubman Elementary. It sits right on the bluffs in inner northeast, enjoying the nearby ambience of I-5 as it cuts through one of the oldest neighborhoods in Portland, long ago dismembered by the freeway builders and the urban planning disaster known as the "Rose Quarter".
