A lack of late night coffee shops

Portland's a great city with a lot going for it. But even after all these years, there's something still lacking: late night coffee shops. And by "late night", I mean past 6 PM. While some shops close earlier than 6, you are still guaranteed to find something open until this time. After 6? The pickings… Continue reading A lack of late night coffee shops

Coffeeneuring 2018, Ride 6: Business business! Thurs 16 Nov

Wow! Ride 6, and the challenge is almost over for 2018. How time flies. I started the Coffeeneuring 2018 Challenge with a lot of vim and vigor. But it's been tough this year. You'd figure with "only" working part-time this would be a breeze, no? I should be doing 60 mile Coffee Outside adventures, and… Continue reading Coffeeneuring 2018, Ride 6: Business business!

Coffeeneuring 2018, Ride 5: Some inside coffee, some outside Rocky Butte. 6 Nov 2018

I had a relatively early (9 AM)* meeting on Tuesday November 6th. I met at Grand Central Bakery in the Beaumont neighborhood with Doug of Alameda History where we talked about doing some history rides in 2019. So look for something interesting in the near future! Despite being there for an hour-and-a-half, I still had… Continue reading Coffeeneuring 2018, Ride 5: Some inside coffee, some outside Rocky Butte. 6 Nov 2018

Coffeeneuring 2017, Ride 6: Moto coffee? Sun 5 Nov

Yep, I cancelled my originally planned Chehalem Range Ramble because the weather forecast was fairly dire. And true to form, it ended up being not that bad after all. Maybe a sprinkle, a temp around 50F/10C. Oh well, I do know of a few folks who went out and did some form of the Chehalem… Continue reading Coffeeneuring 2017, Ride 6: Moto coffee? Sun 5 Nov

Coffee Outside, Fremont Bridge, Fri 10 Feb 2017

You may have remembered during my participation during the Coffeeneuring Challenge last fall that I hit up a new regularly occurring weekly coffee outside meetup, cleverly called PDX Coffee Outside. (Go here and here for reports.) Last time I participated was right before Election Day, and PDX Coffee Outside went on hiatus for a couple… Continue reading Coffee Outside, Fremont Bridge, Fri 10 Feb 2017

Coffeeneuring 2016, Ride 6: Fri 4 Nov, or #pdxcoffeeoutside again

We're nearing the home stretch of Coffeeneuring! Just a few more rides to do before I "win" and get my patch! Well, the dudes behind #pdxcoffeeoutside put out the notice on Thursday November 3 that they would be at the "Dog Bowl" at 7 am on Friday morning. The Dog Bowl is the most popular… Continue reading Coffeeneuring 2016, Ride 6: Fri 4 Nov, or #pdxcoffeeoutside again

An errandenuring type of Coffeeneuring (No. 6): 11 November 2014

How's that first Arctic Blast for you, much of northern North America? While we here in the Northwest haven't gotten the foot-plus of snow that has hit places like Minneapolis (who is better than Portland!), we've gotten some cool weather over here with highs just in the 40's and lotsa wind. Tuesday night saw the… Continue reading An errandenuring type of Coffeeneuring (No. 6): 11 November 2014

Coffeeneuring Ride, Week One: Out in Ainsworth State Park, 8 October 2014

Hello all! It's another year of the Coffeeneuring Challenge put together by Mary over at Chasing Mailboxes. One coffeenuring ride a week for seven weeks, to be done on one's weekend. Since I don't have a traditional weekend, I get to choose one of my mid-week days off. And why not start out with a… Continue reading Coffeeneuring Ride, Week One: Out in Ainsworth State Park, 8 October 2014
