Hip Chicks Do Wine (and Yoga)

Why has the rent and property costs in Portland gotten so bloody high?  Well, since I moved to the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood in SE Portland about six years ago, many tasty places have popped up.  My place lies equidistant between Hopworks Brewing and Gigantic Brewing.  Recently not one, not two, but three new breweries have popped up: Baerlic Brewing Company, Ross Island Brewing and Ground Breaker Brewing and Gastropub.  All a short bike ride away.

And there’s also Teutonic Wine Company around the corner and the oldest winery in the city of Portland: Hip Chicks Do Wine.  Yeah, Portland’s got a lot of what people like.

But we’re not here to talk about that, we’re here to talk about yoga:

That’s right.  Yoga and wine tasting.  Submitted for your amusement:


They squeezed 27 of us into the winery and ran us through an hour of gentle yoga poses, then a round of tasting their wines.  An innovative event, we like that!


Keep up the good work, Hip Chicks!
