    Being a recent transplant from Hawaii to Portland, four years ago, I would love to see the show! My husband has been working hard building an ADU in our backyard, to help with long-term residency. We could use a break!

    By far one of Portland’s favorites on the “Things to Do List” for me! I love hearing these stories, and when I go to this event, I will definitely ask them what it takes to be one of them! Love this stuff!!
