Awesome Chicken Salad

Merging leftovers is a good thing.

I cup chicken breast, chopped
1/2 avocado, diced
1 T mayo
Salt and pepper
Dash of pique (Puerto Rican sauce)

Combine and serve atop dressed greens.

I love Marston's San Pasqual salad dressing.

Perfect for a light lunch for one.

Sol Food - San Rafael

If you find yourself in San Rafael, California and are a bit peckish, don't hesitate stopping at Sol Food. Such loveliness should not be missed. And if you know me make sure to pick up a bottle of the piqué to bring back as a gift.

Timbers Section 110

My section mates in the Timbers 110 for 2012. Only one home game remains for this lackluster season. So sad. I will miss the comraderie. #rctid

Portland Street Art

It was midnight.
I saw geese. At least they weren't pink elephants.

Love Portland street art. Located on MLK Blvd near Russell.

Amanda Palmer at The Wonder Ballroom

The night was hot. It was hot in that ballroom. Hot. Hot. Hot.

The night was also beautiful and wonderful. The opening acts were fun and charming. It had the feel of the cabaret. All that was missing were the little round tables, red velvet and cigarette girls.

I can't help but feel as if the performers last night were characters in a novel, visions of The Great Gatsby wafting here and there.

The opening acts were mini shows put on by members of the The Grand Theft Orchestra, who are amazingly talented, silly and fun. Amanda Palmer filled the role of emcee and spoke to the crowd as if we were all just friends hanging out in her space. Friends who were there to enjoy the show. She ate anamorphic fruit while her tiara sparkled from afar. She was energized.

Here is a vid of Olly Olly Oxen Free.

Another of Want it Back.

You can pay what you want for the album. It's worth your time and some cash.

Theatre Is Evil - Pay What You Want

Some of my favorite music videos of songs from the Theatre is Evil album are out on the internets and are amazing and NSFW.

Here is one. Remember NSFW!  If nudity bothers you then don't click the link. :)

A show for you and a show for me...

I get to admire the poster.

That's all I got to see of the Shins show in Portland last night. You see, my teenage daughter went to the show and I did not. I went to bed early.

Woe is me.

But I get to see Ananda Palmer tomorrow night. Tee hee hee!

Corpse Reviver #2

Ahhhh, that's the ticket.

I've been away for a long time. Here's to my sprinkling this blog with random posts from time to time. Cheers.

Iv'e read that the Corpse Reviver #2 was thought to be a hangover cure. I've never tested that theory. I do love the occasional cocktail at a local resto, La Capitale, served up by Rob. That's @robdrinkenstein if you do the twitter.

1 oz. gin
1 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. Lillet Blanc
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 dash absinthe
Ice cubes
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: cocktail
Garnish: orange peel

Shake all ingredients in a shaker, strain into a chilled glass and garnish.
