Pearl District equals fancy shoe stores: Imelda's & Louies and Halo Shoes.
Portland is home to the shoe company Keen and they have a terrific "garage" store in the Pearl District. We came close, but decided to continue on the hunt.
By this time Anne was fading so a short stop at Lovejoy Bakery for an uplifting chai tea before heading to Pearl Specialty Liquors, hands down the nicest and most comprehensive liquor store in Portland.
Soon it was time to meet up for a Father's Day brunch with the family. Yama Sushi & Sake Bar was delicious, the sushi was inventive and the bento box lunch was yummy.
At this point we had several shoes on hold, due to the no returns, exchanges only store policies. So we biked home planning to hit up yet another shopping district, but it was all too much for Anne who simply wanted to just hang out in the garden, which turned out to be very "fruitful".
mmmmmm....fruit salad bar for dinner!@buddhabellies
