Sunday [at] Urban Grind NE
So, if you were caffeine-deprived at 11 AM on a Sunday morning with a coupla girls in need of food and in need of distraction, where would you go? We have outta-towners with us also, so we decided to hit up one of our all-time faves: Urban Grind in the NE. As we walked up to the door, our friend read a sign: "Free Coffee Sundays, 9 AM to 4 PM". Hot dawg! It's our lucky day! We walked in to find our free hot coffee waiting for us, as well as a wide array of fresh free pastries. To finish off my excitement, our girls found that the little tree in the corner of the play area now had been opened up into a new place space complete with slide and tons of play stuffs. Talk about being a lucky day. They are in there RIGHT NOW playing their hearts out and I will have this place to thank for giving me tired kids ready for their nap. The Urban Grind proprietors tell us that they want to give the community a safe place to hang and chill, so they open their coffee house to the public for free treats and coffee on Sundays. We will definitely put this on our list of "awesome things to do in Portland on a Sunday."
