We stopped by the Zeus cafe to grab a drink and meet up with our friend Caitlin downtown.  The cafe is located on a long block as part of the adjoining Palace Hotel.  The McMenamin’s have a pretty neat thing going in Portland – they buy up properties and turn them into music venues/breweries.  I did not get a chance to try any of there beer, but I did get to try a few tasty beverages while we were there.

Anna and I both snagged a cocktail.  I went for the Zeus’ take on a Vieux Carre.  While I enjoyed it, I cannot say it was as tasty as the one I had at Pepe le Moko the night before (that one was near perfect).  It was, however, quite tasty and I left no alcohol behind.
