*This list includes places I only drank coffee or tea at (did not eat at), wineries and some venues--because I specifically went there for those things or to eat there, but not venues I only went to see a show/do something else at and did not eat. It also includes ice cream/gelatto, places I've worked with/for, and fast food restaurants.

There are a number of places I don't remember or don't remember the name of (mostly food carts/random pho spots/dives/venues).

I spent about a quarter of the year outside of Oregon (travelling/in Columbus). Places not in Oregon are italicized.
