Restaurant: Pok Pok, Portland, Oregon

Not to be missed. The #4 bus goes right there. A Thai-street-food tapas-style restaurant with tasty dishes and a charming atmostphere. Sit outside, especially if it's raining. Cool, interesting cocktails. $$

Restaurant: Pop!, St. Paul, MN

Creative fusion menu with South American flavors. Friendly bar, hip decor. You can't hate a place that has the guts to sell Tab. $

Restaurant: Great Harvest, Portland

Good bread makes a hearty breakfast sandwich. Cautious service. $

Wine: Penner Ash '06 Pinot Noir

Yummy; blackberry pie with cream. $$ (when one's usual is $7)
