By far my fav spot on mississippi is a small cute bar called moloko, But i like to think of it as the "XXX". The brandy sidecar is now my official fav drink. Plus their back patio smells wonderfully portland-esque!.
So it wasn't the greatest of venue's but it sure beat the 5+ hour drive to the gorge, and dont get me started on the clark county amphitheatre, not only does that place blow, but its too near the couve' for comfort. It would be nice to have a festival sized venue in town. Hmmmm???
