    Unthank Park at 510 N Shaver Street in the neighborhood of Boise is a great outdoor package with fields for sports, a playground for the kids and plenty of open green space. It is also a park that has a very important namesake with a very inspirational history. It is named after Dr. DeNorval Unthank (1899-1977), who first came to Portland with his family in 1929. He served on the staff of several prominent Portland hospitals, including Providence and Good Samaritan. Continue reading about Dr. Unthank and Unthank Park here...

    When you want outstanding happy hour, Nepo 42 is the spot. This gem is located in the Concordia Neighborhoodon 42nd. Nepo’s customers claim that they have the best wings in town, how can one argue with that when they are smoked, deep fried and smothered in homemade buffalo wing sauce. What’s even better, during a Trailblazer game, you can get this meaty goodness for .50 cents a wing! It makes my mouth water just thinking about it. On the other hand, if you have a big appetite, then have a delicious burger and fry entrée OR their chicken and waffles, both will knock your socks off!

    Nepo 42 is a chef owned restaurant and full service catering company, their menu features American pub fair and 14 beers on draft. They have a $3 deal on 7 and 7‘s during happy hour and plenty of beer specials.

    There is always something going on at Nepo 42, you can enjoy a televised sporting event (which is most nights), free pool or weekly Nepo trivia night on Wednesday’s. On a personal note, I’ve been to Nepo many times and the service is as quality as their food. My friends and I are always greeted with a smile and depending on the server, even some fun banter. In the summer, feel free to bring your furry companion and sit out on the patio!

    Brunch, lunch or anytime really, Tasty n Sons is a mix of sweet and savory foods all fresh, seasonal and delicious. Some call it tapas for breakfast, some call it family style, either way it’s sharing, and that’s more fun! There are several fantastic dishes on the menu, but my favorite dish continues to be the breakfast biscuit with egg, cheddar cheese and fried chicken, even when it’s time for dinner.

    As Restaurant of the Year in 2010, Tasty n Sons is know for bold rich flavors and welcoming ambiance. Each dish is brought out as it’s prepared, either in a hot cast iron skillet or the shallow, earth-toned cazuelas, either way, the entree’s are consistent, you will get the same great dish time and time again. The service is friendly, fast and fun, but expect to wait an hour or more on a Saturday or Sunday.

    What is brunch without mimosas and bloody Mary’s? Tasty n Sons has  a full liquor license so breakfast cocktails are in full swing, they have four different kinds of bloody’s available at any given time.
