Did you get enough to eat at the Bite yesterday? Today's forecast is for 85 degrees in Salem. I'd say that's about perfect for hanging out at Riverfront Park and enjoying some local food and brew. Thanks to everyone who came up to the booth yesterday and talked food. It's always great to hear local knowledge on Salem restaurants. One guy I spoke with had just moved to Salem three days ago and was wondering where to eat in town. I think Eat Salem will be a handy guide for him to figure out the local hot spots. The new Venti's on SE Commercial seems to be the hot topic among most folks. People are wondering what that is going to be like, so am I. The biggest crowd last night was around 7-8pm. Most of the tables in the venue were full. Vendors were moving people through the lines quickly. I hung out a bit by Willamette Burger Co. and watched their operation. That's something to see. One freshly ground beef patty after another sizzled on their grill as orders came in consistently throughout the day. Our booth is right next to Coldstone Creamery. Did you that the two stores in Salem are locally owned by a young family in Salem? The owners who are out there scooping ice cream told me that they are buying locally grown ingredients from Willamette Valley Fruit. Our booth will be manned or womanned throughout the day with local restaurant experts. Stop by and say hello. Oh yeah, Spin Doctors tonight at 9. It's only $3 to get in. Parking is not to bad along the nearby streets. See you there.
