The most random thing about this long Memorial Day weekend was the way it snuck up on me. I kept forgetting we had a long weekend coming up. I think it’s because we have absolutely nothing planned for tomorrow. I’m seriously looking forward to that.
Today we are having a BBQ with some friends. Dinner will be chicken grilled on a bed of aromatics that I first discovered through Beth Fish Reads when she posted this recipe.
Trust me and bookmark her post – this is amazing chicken.
Maybe I’ll actually get better at playing now that we have our own.
I’m looking forward to Wednesday night. A couple of the actors from the TV show Grimm (which is filmed in Portland) are in a play that just opened at one of the local theaters. Sasha Roiz and Silas Weir Mitchell are starring in Three Days of Rain. It sounds like an interesting show and it’s fun to see actors I like on stage and roles that are very different than their well known characters.
A newly discovered journal recalls Greenwich Village in the early 1960s when two young architects (unaware they’re on the brink of fame) struggle with plans for the iconic Janeway House. The journal is left to their children thirty years later, who must sort out the murky mystery behind their lives—and loves. This Pulitzer Prize-nominated play will star beloved actors from the hit Portland-filmed NBC television series GRIMM: Silas Weir Mitchell (Monroe) and Sasha Roiz (Captain Renard); they are joined by Lisa Datz.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
