This Fall, Get Cozy With Us in Portland!

Portland Fall GetawayPortland, nicknamed Bridge City, is an incredibly beautiful and fascinating city to visit any time of the year, but it’s especially magical during the fall. The summer heat has dissipated and cooler weather has moved in, bringing with it the annual changing of colors, along with Portland’s much loved flannels, sweaters, boots, and beards. Fall is the perfect time to get outside and take a hike in any of Portland’s magnificent parks or trail networks; it’s harvest season at Oregon’s regional wineries, which are an easy day trip from the Portland area; and it’s a special season for Portland’s artisanal brewers as well.  Soon enough, it will time to transition from fall into another merry holiday season in Portland, which is almost as exciting.

The hillsides are alight in color, and Portland’s events calendar is rapidly filling up. If you haven’t already made your plans to visit us this fall, you’ll want to do so now. Our location, just one block from beautiful Willamette Park on the Willamette River, makes us the perfect place to stay while in Portland. Book your room at our Portland Bed and Breakfast today!

ROMEO & JULIET: Oregon Ballet Theatre in Portland February 27 – March 4, 2016

Portland Ballet

Portland Ballet

Romeo & Juliet in February

February 27 – March 5, 2016 | Keller Auditorium
James Canfield | Sergei Prokofiev

Featuring the OBT Orchestra for all performances

A love that recognizes no boundaries, and an impossible-to-forget emotional journey intensified by what may be the most sublime music ever written for ballet… Get ready to be consumed by the passion of Romeo & Juliet as Oregon Ballet Theatre proudly returns James Canfield’s signature work to the repertory following an absence of more than 15 years!

As per Wikipedia, “Romeo and Juliet belongs to a tradition of tragic romances stretching back to antiquity. The plot is based on an Italian tale translated into verse as The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet by Arthur Brooke in 1562, and retold in prose in Palace of Pleasure by William Painter in 1567. Shakespeare borrowed heavily from both, but expanded the plot by developing a number of supporting characters, particularly Mercutio and Paris. Believed to have been written between 1591 and 1595, the play was first published in a quarto version in 1597. The text of the first quarto version was of poor quality, however, and later editions corrected the text to conform more closely with Shakespeare’s original.

Shakespeare’s use of his poetic dramatic structure (especially effects such as switching between comedy and tragedy to heighten tension, his expansion of minor characters, and his use of sub-plots to embellish the story) has been praised as an early sign of his dramatic skill. The play ascribes different poetic forms to different characters, sometimes changing the form as the character develops. Romeo, for example, grows more adept at the sonnet over the course of the play.”

23rd Annual Beerfest in Portland, Oregon

Portland, Oregon Beer Festival 2010

23rd Annual Beerfest in Portland, Oregon on July 22, 23, 24 & 25, 2010 — “Always the last full weekend in July”

Portland ranks as number one for hand-crafted beer in the world because:
1. Last year, Oregon craft brewers produced the equivalent of more than 263,000,000 bottles of beer.
2. The total beer industry in Oregon grew 17% in 2006 with more than $2-1/4 billion in sales.
3. More than 38% of all draft beer and 11% of all beer consumed in Oregon is state-brewed craft beer, the highest percentage of local craft beer consumption in the U.S.
4. Oregon has 80 brewing facilities with at least 2 more ready to open; the state is the second largest producer of craft beer in America.
5. The City of Portland has 29+ breweries, more than any other city in the world.
6. Oregon ranks second in the nation in hops production, growing more than 20 different varieties.

Portland from July 22-25 is the world’s best place to be for lovers of great beers. The City will again host the largest Craft Brewer’s Festival on the globe for the 20th year. There’ll be 72+ craft beers, live music, food, displays and vendors, all at Waterfront Park beginning at noon each day. For a complete list of the beers, click on to http://oregonbrewfest.com

Here’s how easy it is to get to Waterfront Park from The Fulton House, which are both located in Southwest Portland. Walk 1/2-block to a city bus stop #35  and take the 10-minute ride downtown to a Street Car stop at Moody Avenue switch to MAX light rail (it’s free!), which will take you 1 block from the Festival in about 3 minutes. Reverse directions to get back to us.

Follow these instructions and you’ll have absolutely no worries about the hassles and expense of downtown parking. More importantly, you’ll avoid being stopped by one of Portland’s finest and being issued a ticket for DUI.

Waterfront Park Portland, Oregon Blues Festival

Summer has come to Oregon in a rush. Temperatures here in Portland are in the high 70’s-80’s, the sun is shining brightly and the weatherman  is predicting  perfectly clear skies with not a cloud in sight. But, like almost always, there is a cooling breeze that keeps us from over-heating.

“Weird Oregon” & Open House

Weird Oregon Book Signing Event

If you joined us for our “Open House & “Weird Oregon” book signing Event on June 12th, thank you for coming and we hoped you enjoyed our first of many events here at the B & B.  If you were unable to attend, you will have other opportunities during 2010 to join us.  Saturday’s event was filled with great conversations and stories, good fixings from “Uncle Reo’s BBQ”,  unique varieties of beers from the “Beer Mongers” in SE Portland, Wine from John’s Wine Cellar and great people. 

Jeff Davis--Author, Weird Oregon

Jeff Davis, co-author of “Weird Oregon” visited with guests, shared stories and talked about his ghosts and paranormal adventures.  Books were available for purchase as well as personalized and signed.  A treasure for your coffee table or just a fun book about legends and places to travel here in Oregon.  Maybe it could be your 100 things to see and do in Oregon–add it to your bucket list.  Click here to check out his website. 

If you missed this event, Jeff and his co-author will be revealing some of the most exciting, yet strange stories, that they encountered while they were creating the book, at these venues:

May 19, 6:30 p.m., Barnes & Noble, 18300 N.W. Evergreen Parkway, Beaverton, both will appear.

May 21, 7 p.m., Barnes & Noble, 1317 Lloyd Center, Portland, both will appear.

May 22, 2 p.m., Barnes & Noble, 2690 N.E. Highway 20, Bend, only Jeff will appear (now that’s weird).

So what are some of the things that keep Portland weird, according to the authors? A jug-shaped building, a Paul Bunyan statue, a Russian coffee house.  And even the Fulton House Bed & Breakfast found on page 60 & 61, “Could we be Nancy Bogg’s infamous Bordello?”

Weird Oregon

For every Weird Oregon book purchased at the Fulton House Bed & Breakfast,  the Innkeeper donated $5.00  to the Providence Cancer Center/Portland for cancer research.  Wendy will be sending  a check for $200.  A special “Thank you” to everyone who purchased a book!

Cancer Center Providence Portland, Oregon

Thank you all for making this event successful and we hope to see you at our future events.  Follow this blog to find out about our up-coming events.
