We’re back! Did you miss us? Last week Melani (or Champagne as she is now known as on CC.com) took the local drinkers to Ottimista Enoteca CafĂ© on Union Street. She has done a great little write up on CocktailConfidential.com for those of you who couldn’t make it, or, those of you who could and need a few hints as to how they woke up with who they woke up with on Saturday morning. Sounds like Scott and I will need to check it out soon.

While you were all having a bottle or three of wine and watching in the rain, Scott, Kip, Deb and I were in Portland. Or at least trying to be. Our Friday evening started out a bit slow as Alaska Airlines unexpectedly relocated Happy Hour for some of us to SFO… for three hours. Needless to say, we were still able to make the best of it with a long dinner at The Doug Fir and a nightcap at Devils Point – two of my favorite Portland Destinations for gravy and boobies – in that order. We made up it by dragging everyone to Mary’s Club to see the Contortionist Stripper the next night. THAT was a happy couple of hours. Reviews of all these places can be found at http://cosmolicious.yelp.com.

This week I wanted to find someplace with a fireplace and big comfy chairs to hide from the rain, but I’m thinking everyone else will be as well, so I’ve opted for someplace with decent parking instead.

First we will be starting at Hotel Biron at 6:30 on Friday the 14th.

45 Rose Street @ Market – you’ll need to look at the map.

Looks like a cool little wine bar. It’s pretty small, so do RSVP so we can save you a seat if you will be joining us. Afterwards, we will be heading up to Sauce for a MUCH needed visit to Trip, Nate and Chef Ben for a little something to absorb the wine.

Should be a fun evening! And yes, we will tell you more about the Contortionist Stripper is you buy us a drink…. and maybe even if you don’t!
