With names like these, I had to sample these sodas from Portland Craft Soda.
We were at a food cart pod sampling the flavors while we decided what to eat.
It was fun especially as the evening was warm and people were happy.
There was music and laughter. Strangers talked and joked with each other.
French crepes, Middle Eastern, Mexican, a full bar, hamburgers… So many tempting choices. We finally settled for a fennel sausage pizza from the Pyro Pizza Cart. It was delicious! We will return soon to try the other pizzas and the arugula salad.
Plus some of the other food carts too.
The Habanero Lime was a “must try’! Just a whiff of it took my breath away but I was determined to drink some. Whoa Nellie, as they say, it was strong!
The basamic fig reminded me of kambucha.
My hands-down favorite was the Lemon Mint. It was refreshing with a hint of sweetness.
I did not try them all. I did find a winner in the Lemon Mint and ordered a full glass. A new favorite!
Catching a movie at “Cartopia Movie Night” sounds fun especially with friends. It’s fun to hang out with milennials. It would be fun to watch Jaws with a group of milennials and their kids.

Not much to write home about.
Needless to say, I was not one to seek out Chinese restaurants.
Yesterday was a perfect Saturday for me. By 8 A.M., I was sweating at a spinning class, back home to housework and then quality time with Ginny before taking her to doggy day care.

However, I would never recommend a place unless I loved it. It’s that simple! Continue reading “My Favorite Food Places”→
