Downtown Starwood Luxury Collection hotel The Nines--Portland's fanciest, despite having an atrium that looks like it could have been airlifted straight out of the Radisson suites--is home to the local/farm-y/etc restaurant Urban Farmer, which just today announced plans for a "Drink Local" project. Bartender Daniel Stern will be featuring four cocktails every week, with every Tuesday beginning a different local producer. First up is Integrity Spirits, which means a gin highball; a vodka drink made with Stumptown cold-brewed extract; something we'll leave at Autumn Apology; and Monkey Business, made with absinthe. Stop in starting November 3rd to trip with the highest of them all.
