natethegreat1984 Proof that the best stuff can be found at flea markets! I picked up this sweet Wesley "Iron Man" Matthews bobble head for $2 this afternoon! I'm pretty excited about it. He's such a great player and I admire his resilience. Plus you can never have too many bobble heads around. #RipCity #GoBlazers #Portland 2w

natethegreat1984 Happy 4th of July, my friends!!! My restaurant was closed to mark the occasion so I've spent most of the day snacking and taking naps (which is my American dream, really). It's a good day to be alive! #portland #fireworks #waterfront 4w

natethegreat1984 My current view! Spending the weekend with family on the Oregon coast! My mom is friends with the owners of a bed and breakfast in Depoe Bay and they are letting us "house sit" for the weekend. Isn't that great?!? I'm loving this! Every time I see the ocean I feel such a sense of peace and well being. 🐋 #DepoeBay #whalewatching 1mon

natethegreat1984 A glorious day in Portland! Started the day off right with breakfast at "Olympic Provisions" (a new Sunday tradition of mine). After that I bummed around town for the rest of the day with my little brother. Decided to check out Mt. Tabor Park as sunset approached and I'm glad I did! It's incredibly beautiful! All and all a perfect day. #Portland #nature #parksandrec 2mon

natethegreat1984 Taking a much needed frozen yogurt break! I've been up since 7am packing and am so close to being done I can almost taste it! So yeah, peach yogurt with blackberries and mangos it is. Soon I will be just another foodie in SE Portland. Oh boy! #NatesBigMove #fatandhappy #Portland 2mon

natethegreat1984 Waiting at the Burgerville bus stop like a boss! It's a beautiful day in Portland and I just had a lovely lady tell me that I reminded her of "a young Johnny Cash." Needless to say I was thrilled and decided to snap a selfie (my first of 2014) to mark the occasion. 3mon

natethegreat1984 Ladies and gentlemen, Johnny Cash! Words cannot properly describe how much I love this tattoo. Thanks to the talented @obritztattoos for making this dream of mine a reality. "I find it very, very easy to be true/ I find myself alone when each day is through/Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you/Because you're mine, I walk the line" #JohnnyCash 4mon

natethegreat1984 I love Portland for reasons such as these! I stumbled across this little gem on my way to Sunday brunch at "The Woodsman Tavern." Put a big smile on my face, to say the least. #Portland 4mon

natethegreat1984 Johnny Cash has always been one of my musical heroes. His voice is a thing of beauty. My next tattoo is going to be a portrait of this guy, I have decided. #JohnnyCash 4mon

natethegreat1984 Well, my day just improved by leaps and bounds! Ate this bad boy and now I feel like a million bucks! It's the brainchild of @bjsmithpdx: smoked beef tongue, deviled egg yoke, pickled fennel and buttered lettuce. It was a thing of beauty. I need a cigarette after this, that's how good it was. #lardopdx #portland #fatandhappy 5mon

natethegreat1984 Fueling up before work at The Whole Bowl! Rice, avocado, cilantro, cheese and salsa. In a word: perfection. In other non-food news: my grandfather is turning 78 today and he's still more active than most people my own age. It's inspiring, really. 5mon

natethegreat1984 Three glorious days of snow in Portland! I'm not going to lie, I'm loving this! It's pretty magical out and it's been so fun seeing people all bundled up and playing in the city like children. I'm going to remember this week fondly. #pdxsnow #snowday #pdxpipeline #letitsnowletitsnowletitsnow 6mon
  •   natethegreat1984 It's pretty great, @katydid52! Sorry you're missing out. @rommuss is right though, ice cold rain is just around the bend. 6mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Hey @rommuss "Fado" is open today until 8 if you'd like to swing by for a glass of wine and a snack! 6mon
  •   holddear I loved these last few days so much! When the freezing rain started falling, I yelled at it, "You're ruining everything!" :) 6mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Right, @holddear? I had the exact same response when it started to rain liquid death from above. "You're ruining my winter wonderland!" Sigh... Still, it's been lovely. 6mon
  •   sarahlyncollins Gorgeous picture of one of the greatest men in history! Accept for Tom Owen. I miss history classes with you! 6mon

natethegreat1984 Enjoying a nice afternoon tucked away in my favorite coffee shop on this cold Monday. I so rarely have time to read anymore. I'm currently reading a fantastic chef memoir called "Blood, Bones & Butter" by Gabrielle Hamilton. It's a beautiful read thus far. #portland 6mon
  •   diana38 I love how happy all your posts are :) definitely like seeing happy and more positive posts from ppl who can appreciate the small things like a book and a coffee shop! Or lardo sandwich hahaha 5mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Why thank you, @diana38! I really appreciate that. Life is all about appreciating the small things. I'm an enthusiast. Life is too short to live without passion. 5mon

natethegreat1984 Yet another reason why I love Portland: occasionally the street performers are awesome! As was the case with this fine fellow. I was walking home from grabbing a coffee this afternoon and I stopped to listen to this guy play the bagpipes for awhile. He was incredible. Made my day that much better! #portland 6mon

natethegreat1984 Behold: "Ed's Plate!" Spinach, mushrooms, garlic, and cheddar cheese. In a word: fantastic! A beautiful way to start my one day off this week! Slept for ten hours and now I get to bum around Portland all day. It's pretty ideal. #Portland #breakfast 7mon
