LUPEC Seattle Dismantling the Patriarchy…one drink at a time!

Ladies for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails, Seattle Edition!
We try to meet up once a month in the area's best cocktail bars to try tasty libations made of gin, rum, tequila, whiskey, etc.
Occasionally we throw a party and use our power to raise money for local charities.

Follow the fun!

Rails & Cocktails

I rolled into Portland last night on the 5:30 pm train with Dayne, fellow LUPEC lady Lauren & her hubby Paul. I've taken trains all over Europe but this was my first Amtrak ride to Portland & it was fun, fun, fun!

Granted I had packed a picnic of sorts with baguette, olives, 2 kinds of cheeses & some salami. Paul had brought along a Tupperware of pre-batched martinis, ice, shaker, cocktail glasses & lemon twists. There was enough for 3 1/2 rounds! Let me just say that martinis make the time pass quickly.

So although your not technically allowed to bring booze onboard in the coach section we kept it on the down low and no one said boo. Now if we had started hand carving ice balls a la Rob Roy it may have not gone as well :)

Looking forward to tonights meet up, some of the Portland LUPEC girls are joining us also!
