Travels

Nike Town

Saturday was the most calm day of the trip as we only had one thing on the agenda and that was to do some shopping at the Nike Corporate store. We went to breakfast back in downtown at Tasty n Alder for a delicious breakfast biscuit sandwich and a bloody mary.

Jeremy had worked his magic the months leading up to the trip to get us entrance tickets to the Nike Corporate store where you need to know someone who works there. Obviously it isn’t totally exclusive if you can’t tell by the huge line just to get in, but a 40% discount off new releases is something to worth getting. We probably spent two hours shopping for all our families and that was still a bit rushed. I walked out of there with a couple of pairs of shoes for myself, one for Joy and some clothes for the kids.

After shopping we went back to Portland to walk around the Saturday Morning Farmers Market and get a picture in front of the Keep Portland Weird sign.

Our last meal of the trip was to get some sandwiches at Lardo where we split a porchetta sandwich and a Nashville (not so) hot chicken sandwich. The porchetta sandwich is one of the better ones i’ve had.

With a single bag full of new Nike gear we headed back to the airport to close out our Dad’s trip out.
