Portland Soccer / Football

There are men’s and women’s professional soccer teams based in Portland, Oregon where OPAS is located. The men’s team is the “Portland Timbers” and the women are the “Portland Thorns”. Last weekend (September 2, 2017), I attended the Thorns vs the Washington DC Spirit game. It was a beautiful day for a soccer game. We won 4-0! The stadium was quite full. Attendance was 19,141 people and there was no doubt that almost all of them were Thorns fans.

The Thorns’ average home attendance this season is 17,335 a game. That’s more than double the turnout of all but one of the nine other teams in the National Women’s Soccer League! Needless to say, both of the Timbers and Thorns are well-supported by many of the locals. This is why Portland is sometimes called Soccer City, USA!

Japanese Saké Summer Festival!

On Saturday, August 26, one of America’s most well known and awarded saké producers, SakéOne hosted its SakéOne Summer Festival. This end of summer festival featured local food vendors, Oregon craft beer, Willamette Valley wine and of course saké. I enjoyed good food and drinks while listening to lively music. Ten tasting tokens were more than enough for me.

There are a variety of regional specialties sold in Oregon, so please enjoy shopping at online stores and let us help ship to you!
