Oregon, that is. At Rogue Brewery headquarters with one of their beers that was in development but not being bottled yet. Probably not the best chowder in the region but after walking miles on the beach, it fuckin hit the spot. One of my top 10 "meals remembered."

Another was last year after a 14 mile mountain hike. Can't remember the name of the place. It was in Grand Lake, CO. Basically a big plate of steamed greens and a hamburger sans bun. I ate it in about 90 seconds.

The dish was sort of the modern equivalent to what they would sell to housewives at the Woolworth lunch counter in the 70s--the "lo-cal" plate (usually had
a dry hamburger patty, canned peaches, cottage cheese, and a couple of watery tomato slices nestled in a bed of iceburg lettuce ).

Another great "remembered" meal was in SF. There used to be a place on Haight Street called the Grand Piano and they did a pretty good spaghetti marinara with tangy fresh green salad and crusty french bread. Again, it was after physical activity: a 3-hour ramble down the length of GG park to the ocean and back.
