Building Progress

Last week the final floor of The Cosmopolitan was poured!  Later this week, the roof will be poured! There are only a few floors awaiting windows. Boxes of cabinets can be seen in some of the 2nd floor units, ready for installation. Patio doors and siding are going in.  It’s so interesting to watch the exterior change color as the sun moves throughout the day.

There are still wonderful units available for purchase.   Visit the showroom at 1130 NW 10th Avenue, M-F 10-5 or S-S 11-5 for more information.

Looking for a place to watch your favorite football team?

A good sports bar is hard to find sometimes, but The Fields Bar & Grill has 13 HDTV’s for you to catch all your favorite College and Professional Teams.

It is also a hot spot for great food, fresh handcrafted cocktails and craft beers. Located in Portland’s Pearl District on the corner of 11th and Northrup,  you’ll find a dedicated staff and an enjoyable atmosphere to watch your favorite sports team or relax with family and friends. Their menu features local, natural, sustainable ingredients, whenever possible, to create a menu that is not your typical sports bar cuisine.
