It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas

at the Lion and the Rose

2013-12-05 17.54.07

We are decking the halls and putting up the tree, getting the Lion and the Rose decorated from top to bottom and ready for the Holiday Season.  Each guest room is decorated, the main floor is a glow and the big tree is in the Middle Parlor.

After visiting some of the local holiday sights and sounds you can come back to a cozy room here at inn, enjoy a cup of tea or hot chocolate and settle in with a good book or for that long winter’s nap.

Check our Photo Gallery for more pictures of Christmas at the Lion and the Rose.

Portland’s Apizza Scholls among the best in the U.S.

USA Today includes Apizza Scholls in the
top 15 pizza places in the U.S.

USA Today – November 30, 2013 – “Apizza Scholls has some of the best pizza in Portland, and some have argued, north of San Francisco — and that’s using an electric oven! But they do have some guidelines for patrons interested in composing their own topping combinations on their 18-inch pies: only three ingredients, and no more than two meats per pie. So choose wisely from a list of toppings that in addition to classics like anchovies, red onions, garlic, pepperoni, sausage and basil includes capicollo, house-cured Canadian bacon, cotto salami, arugula, jalapeño and pepperoncini. Heads-up: bacon is “not offered for build your own toppings.” If you aren’t up to building your own pie, there are 10 classics to choose from, including the signature Apizza Amore: margherita with capicollo (cured pork shoulder). The signature Amore features a spicy kick offset a bit by the somewhat sweet mozzarella and balanced sauce. That’s amore!”

Apizza Scholls –
4741 SE Hawthorne Blvd Portland, OR – 503-233-1286
Monday – Sunday 5pm – 9:30 pm.
