Another Year, Another 4 Days of Lolla

Lollapalooza is mayhem, it’s a madhouse, and every year I find myself back there.

Take a look at the Willamette River, folks! And take a look at the great view it boasts. Since the last few posts have been about Portland, I thought we could go a little deeper and learn some interesting facts about this great city. Here we go! Portland was named by the flip of a…
