Not only is Icelandair beginning direct service between PDX and Reykjavik this spring, but now you can purchase Brennivín in Portland (and throughout Oregon) as well.

Finally had a minute to post some pics from the amazing Steed Lord concert in LA on the 24th of October. Thanks again for everyone who made it out to the show. Hope you had as great a time as we did. Big thanks to Jarritos for providing mixers, and to Red Bull for the surprise visit (and surprise Blueberry Red Bulls for the crowd!). Looking forward to our next trip to LA. Skal, Joe
