    Nice find of a cool old car and sign. We have been telling our granddaughter the same slogan forever. She was one determined toddler and when things were getting a little tough, out came choices. That whole area of the PNW is pretty nice and despite the rainy weather, would be our other choice to get a place on one of the forested areas or on one of the nearby islands.

    We drove through the Laurelhurst Neighborhood on 33rd Ave. to get to our destination, McMenamins Kennedy School. OK, WHAT are two old folks doing going to an old elementary school? We had been traveling all over this Columbia River area for some great photo locations and since we liked the area, looked up quality places to dine for dinner.
    A person we talked to at the Powell’s Bookstore in the downtown Portland area mentioned great dining experience and food at the Kennedy School location. We already knew about a place called Voodoo Doughnuts, but to eat dinner as an elementary school? That was going to be a first.
    Trepidation was in full swing as we drove through some pretty fabulous homes leading up to The Kennedy School. We drove through the Laurelhurst Area. On our travels, we usually get a better picture of the area by taking city streets. Since Portland is a pretty spread out areas with the 4 compass corners highlighted with different locations/neighborhoods, it was fun to drive and enjoy.


    When we arrived, it was amazing. This place is a certain stop for any travelers in the Portland area for a resort stay or just for breakfast, lunch or dinner as we experienced. We were told to get there around 5-5:30 pm for the best seats and less crowds on any day. It is a popular place for locals as well as travelers.

    Despite the recent problems in Portland, it still has some character left in those cool, old, neighborhoods.
