Southland Whiskey Kitchen
Daring daughter flew in from B.A. last week and younger son arrived on Monday, so we all went out to dinner at Southland Whiskey Kitchen on oh-so-trendy 23rd Avenue in downtown Portland. The boys and I had the large brisket dinners. They were great, and at $12 a real deal as well. Lunch at Buster's runs $12 and you don't get half the meat you get here. Buster's $12 does include iced tea, and our drinks at Southland cost more than the food. I was drinking something called "Bubbles and Bourbon", which is basically champagne and Bourbon, which reminded me of a drink my mother-in-law made out of champagne and Cognac that she called a "French 75".
The boys left for a holiday in Berlin yesterday. I tell you, kids these days, jetting off at the drop of a hat. It was kind of nice to have them all home for a bit, though it was just a bit. A few hours on Monday and a few hours on Friday and that was it till who knows when.
