We spent Saturday, the day before Portland Cocktail Week sign-in, walking around shopping. Our wanderings took us across the river, and Andrea commented that we were close to Laurelhurst Market. I became excited because that is where Evan Zimmerman worked; I first experienced his mixology and love of hardcore music with his Minor Threat. Once seated at the bar of this restaurant, we discovered that Evan had moved elsewhere but the new bar manager Eric Nelson had continued Laurelhurst Market's proud tradition for good drinks; in fact, we stayed for two rounds.
