Courtney: I Love To EatFebruary 2nd, 2013
Last night I went to see this one-man show about James Beard. I went to dinner at Blue Hour then walked around the corner to see the play. That was a perfect evening. I highly recommend it and if you don’t live in Portland I can tell you it would be worth flying in for, in my book.
The dude playing James Beard is totally amazing. Charming and brazen, wordly and world-weary. I wanted so badly to take him out to dinner or have him over to the Oddy for a nice 7 course wine pairing but then I realized, “DOH! That’s not James Beard, that’s an actor. DAMN. This guy is good.”
P.S. At Blue Hour I had Oregon Coast Kumamotos with a glass of Veuve (by the glass. Rad) and then the black cod with a risotto cake. Brought my own Croatian wine. Awesome. All was right and true in the world of food.
