Portland, Ore., gets all the good stuff! Reader Calvin is looking to open an artisanal vegan ice cream shop in Portland, and is looking for funding through IndieGoGo. It’s called Savor the Chill, and we are already (pistachio) green with envy. Look at this roasted banana maple vegan ice cream! Look upon it and despair!
If I had all of the money—or, OK, more of the money than I have now, which is “very little”—I would open a vegan diner, open late nights through late mornings, and we would always serve brunch and sticky desserts, and also beer and maybe if we got enough money for a for-real liquor license, boozy coffee. Yes, I have serious holiday hangover and I really just want to drink boozy coffee with a sticky bun, sitting under a blanket watching an AbFab marathon, but can you blame me?
For now, let’s throw a few dollars Calvin’s way and give ourselves another destination for our Portland Eating Tour 2012. Good luck, Savor the Chill!
