Salty's on the Columbia, answer to Where is it Wednesday...somewhere in Portland, OR 1/25/12

 

Congrats to  Kat Palmiotti ,for correctly guessing last week's Where is it Wednesday titled:

Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, answer to Where is it Wednesday...somewhere in Portland, OR 1/18/12

Each week I'll be posting a new picture on Wednesday morning(ish). The title of the blog will have the City where the picture is taken and I'll post the answer Wednesday evening...not only here on my blog, but on facebook business page (please click like and add yourself there) as well as tweetin it on my Twitter page and posting on Google+. Remember, you're free to google or use whatever there is on hand.

If you're looking for a nice restaurant where you can enjoy waterfront views, it's Salty's on the Columbia River. Having just purchased a floating home not too far away (read my blog post about it), my hubby and I thought we'd go check it out for lunch. The day was rainy (we ARE in Portland in winter after all) but we enjoyed a window view. In the summer, you can enjoy the outside deck watching the boaters go by. If you go, I can personally say the service we had was excellent, my lunch of clam chowder soup and Blackened Salmon was delicious. They also have killer homemade chips to nosh on while you wait.

Now, about those huge nutcrackers. This one is called "White Christmas" and was one of two sitting outside on the deck. Here is a list of all of the nutcrackers and their artists. which are spread out through their three locations..two in Washington State and the one here in Portland. Salty's is one of those places that you come for special occasions, or after a day on the water.

Hi Cindy,

I'm working on it, but it doesn't look good for success on this one.

Cindy - I don't know where it is but that's an interesting nutcracker! Being all the way from NJ I have no idea but it's a great picture!

Hi Cindy,

I don't know why I made this hard for myself, but I used every trick I know to get this one. It is Salty's on the Columbia River located at 3839 NE Marine Drive, Portland, OR. I finally found one image matching the water views, without the "Outdoor German toy figure on skis." I found a blog about Salty's in Seattle with a photo of these figures inside the restaurant.

Cindy, That's not fair!  I was just going to say the exact same thing that Detective John said.  Can I at least get a ribbon or a box of chocolates?  ;-)  Thank you again and best wishes always.

Hey Richard,

I psychically sensed you were about to come on strong, so I figured I just had to beat you to the punch. BTW, you've got to earn that ribbon or box of chocolates. Cindy doesn't give those away willy-nilly. Haha Good to see you!

Hi Kristine, I was sitting at this restaurant eating lunch and they had a few of these. Apparently it's their thing each year and they do some kind of contest..I'll be looking that up shortly. I thought it was cool as well.

Hi Richard,  Hey..life is like a box of chocolates...you just never know whos gonna get the answer right first..or something like that. :) Sorry I missed your call but got your lovely message. I was on the phone with my MIL at the time..so couldn't break away. Glad you finally got them before they melted and again, thank you for all you've done for me last year. Much appreciated!

Hi John, you are indeed correct! It is Salty's on the Columbia River. Good thing you got that out before Richard..although....I'm thinking he kinda just said that <wink wink>:)) He actually did earn a box of chocolates as well this year because he's been very generous and has featured a couple of my videos in his blog..thus introducing me to some new subscribers. You both have been great ActiveRain friends and have helped me greatly! This year I hope to return that your way. Now off to update the post with info on Salty's. Thanks always for stopping over this way and playing along. I truly appreciate that.

Cindy ~ I wouldn't have had a clue as to where that photo was taken.  Congrats to Kat.  Having a broken ankle, she has lots of time on her hands!

Cindy, "I'm thinking he kinda just said that <wink wink>"  REALLY?  You doubted me?  Unbelievable!  I won't even dignify your doubt in me by denying your accusation.  John, Thank you for believing in me.  I would have answered sooner, but I was busy finishing off a truffle.  ;-)  Best wishes always.

Richard,

I know how distracting  those darn truffles can be. ;-))) We are a great group of friends here and I value every friend I have made on AR.

Hi Dawn, I don't know how Kat does it. She was saying she was showing property and noticing how many homes have two levels. Gotta give it to her!

Hi John, I didn't get a box for myself to taste..so hoping they were tasty..although I never met a piece of chocolate that I didn't like :). I love your comment..and it's true, lots of friends made here in the Rain...and all a huge part of why I pop in each day even if  just to read some blogs.
