I spent an evening in Portland and enjoyed it a lot. Walked around: bought some pottery form a gallery that does some awesome crystalline stuff, drooled in some estate jewelry stores, liked that the kitchen/housewares stores also had wine, had a good scotch in a little bar, then had a good dinner. Missed out on going to the museum, but I'd definitely enjoy going back. ~ H
