Portland earns some great ink in a new city Travel Guide just posted to the Time magazine site. It's written by Caryn "with a C" Brooks (not the recently deposed Oregonian restaurant maven Karen "with a K" Brooks). Given C. Brooks' foodie background as the illustrious Miss Dish, it's no surprise that in her main feature, "Portland: 10 Things to Do in 24 Hours," four "things" involve food and drink. She recommends food carts, movie theater brew pubs, microbrews and spirits and Voodoo Donuts as essential Portland experiences. In her words
If there was ever a business that captured the kooky essence of Portland, it's Voodoo. From the belly of two locations, sweet-fingered magicians concoct what might best be described as avant-garde doughnuts: when Voodoo first opened, it offered doughnuts glazed with NyQuil and dusted with Pepto-Bismol — until the health department put the kibosh on them. Lest that sound unappetizing, please know that Voodoo's other offerings are actually quite delicious.
