Briefs: Portland Walking Tours Adds Second Exploration


reports, and wire, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Portland Walking Tours in Oregon has added a second culinary exploration. Starting at 2 p.m. every Friday and Saturday, the new Epicurean Excursion takes walkers on a three-and-one-half hour journey to savor flavors. Inspired by the often sold-out original Epicurean Excursion, the new tour takes visitors through Portland's Pearl District, with stops at some of the city's favorite culinary hot spots. The unscripted, behind-the-scenes peek is filled with facts about the city's booming urban neighborhood, its innovative architecture, sustainable living and, of course, tasty treats. Walkers are encouraged throughout the journey to stop, smell the aromas, savor the flavors and appreciate the complexity of the featured delicacies. Perfect pairings of wine, chocolate and cheese unfold the tastes and textures of each treat offered on the tour.

The excursions are limited to intimate groups of 16 people per tour to preserve the flexible and personal nature of the walk. All samples, sips and nibbles are included in the $59 price per person. The original Epicurean Excursion will still be offered at 10 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Private group tours are also available.

That was the year that two young friends from Milwaukee, William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson, first made their product available to the public.

Also on display will be historic items like posters, ads, clothes, trophies and accessories that tell the story of the company and its history; footage of motorcycling, both vintage and contemporary; and a design lab that shows how bikes are developed and engineered. The company celebrates its 105th anniversary this year Aug. 28-31 with a series of special events. Although the legendary motorcycle company offers tours at its Capital Drive facility in Milwaukee and at its York, Pa.., factory, this is Harley's only comprehensive museum.

Admission is $16; $12 for senior citizens and students ,and $10 for ages 5 through 17. …
