Last Friday Corey and I shared a bottle of wine at Noble Rot, a gorgeous wine bar with a stunning view of the city. Right now, it's definitely one of my favorite spots in Portland. If you're a Portland resident, you probably know that Departure on top of The Nines Hotel is getting a lot of hype, and no offense to it- it's beautiful- but it's a bit stuffy. If you're looking for something different, the view at Noble Rot is incomparable as it's on the east side of the river and you can actually see the city, and the atmosphere is refreshing and much more laid back. So, if you're around, go there. Now! You won't regret it. And don't miss the cheese plate. Mmmm.
