A friend of mine who lives in Portland Oregon told me about this whimiscal pub called McMenamins. Apparently, there are quite a few of these places in the Pacific Northwest and there's a whole charming history to the company as well. Check them out if you want to find out more.
My friend also told me they have on their menu an item called a Communication Breakdown Burger. I love the name of this burger. Since we are currently going through Mercury Retrograde, it seems like the ideal time to eat one. After all, communication does typically break down during Mercury Retrograde. I wonder if, whoever named this burger, did so because she was having a difficult time communicating. Thus, this burger was born. I'd like to think that's how it happened, but honestly, I have no idea.
Anyway, the burger consists of cheddar cheese, grilled mushrooms, onions and bell pepper. According to the menu it comes with fries too. Yum. Sounds delish. With the exception of the bell pepper (a vegetable I am NOT fond of) I'm all in! I don't eat burgers too often, but boy...I'm a sucker for a good one and this sounds like a good one.
I will have an opportunity to have one of these delectable delicacies as early as next week. I'm heading up to PDX and I'm sure that the Communication Breakdown Burger will be only one of the many highlights I will experience. I'm looking forward to the trip.

I'm not crazy about traveling during a Mercury Retrograde, but I've done it before and you just have to remember to go with the flow. It might be worth it, just to take a big juicy bite of that burger!
So let me know if any of you have been up to Portland. And if so, have you been to McMenamins? Did you eat that big, beautiful burger pictured above? I'd love to hear about your experience. I hear they have some pretty great brew up there too!
Until the next time...signing off as I head up north! Peace.
