They really make greeting cards… but apparently they feature all of the card artwork in their museum.
I went to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and checked out a few exhibits and saw a 3D IMAX movie. Always love going to 3D movies when there are a bunch of little kids watching as well and watching them as they try to grab the screen.
Pine State Biscuts — enough said.
Then spent the next 5 hours making jam! Quite an intensive process but very cool. Picking, juicing, jellying, and jarring.
Went to the Portland Art Museum, had lunch, and walked around the “Cultural District” downtown. Definitely a great area outside of the Pearl District that has a more “Portland” vibe than the Pearl District.
Later I had an amazing evening/night with everyone at the house, and met other AirBnB hosts and guests. There was tons of great food; most of which came right from the gardens outside.
Another great WordCamp. Arrived late on Friday night so I was only able to attend Saturday but I still had a great time as usual. Only the second time I’ve been to Grand Rapids but it remains as one of my favorite places to go.
On Sunday before my flight out I managed to go to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum and the Grand Rapids Art Museum which were both very cool.
I walked to an art gallery today that was featuring work by a local artist. It was in the RCVA Gallery. RCVA is a skateboard/apparel company so I found that very interesting as I had no idea they had things like that. I’ve found myself wishing–on more than one occasion–I still skateboarded and this definitely piqued my interest again.
I walked to the venue since my MyKi is expired and I’m a rule follower. Down a street called Smith Street I don’t think I saw anyone over the age of 25. There seems to be an endless amount of hip neighborhoods in any direction outside of the city.
Also I’m not perfect. I rode the myki back and someone had my same boots on. And the guy sitting next to us definitely noticed.
