This week’s forecast is brought to you by food. Specifically, Henni’s food. Henni’s Bar and Grill in White Salmon will feed you well, with everyday food from around the world concocted with passion and the finest locally-sourced ingredients. If your mama was from Mexico, she’d make you tacos. If she was from India, she’d make you curry. If she was from the USA, she’d make you a killer burger. If Christiaan was your mama, he’d make you all of the above, better than your mom could make it.. Henni’s is open for lunch and dinner Monday-Friday and for dinner only on Saturday, with small plates from $4-9 and big plates from $14-18 and a killer happy hour. We’re giving away gift certificates this week, and then we’ve got a treasure hunt for you all next month. Stay tuned! I think Christiaan is rad, and I think his food is delicious, so cross the bridge (unless you’re in WA already), and go check out Henni’s.
Now, your forecast:
It’s a beautiful summer day out there, finally, even in Portland, where it’s not cloudy for once. The gradient now, at 8:45am (yeah, I slept in today), is .05, and that means we’re going to see a little wind today. It’s a bit glassy right now, but should pick up to 10-15 pretty quickly and then 14-17 this afternoon from Stevenson to Hood River.
Tomorrow brings 5-10 in the morning in the western Gorge, 10-14 midday, and then as a weak disturbance passes to the north late in the day, the wind will pick up to 17-21 at Stevenson, get gusty near Hood River, and then fill in as far east as Arlington in the low twenties.
The Clymb: free membership.
Access to super cheap gear including Trew, Zeal, Sierra Designs, and many more.
Saturday brings 5-10 in the morning picking up to 15-18 in the afternoon near Hood River. Sunday brings 15-18 in the morning and 21-24 in the afternoon.
Tonight is the Post and Pint mountain bike ride, as always on Thursday, but if you want something to watch, head up to Family Man in Post Canyon for the Pump de Post, an all-ages pumptrack race benefitting the Gorge Freeride association. It’s just $5 to enter, and if you’re coming up, bring your BBQ and your family and make a party of it. But please, the organizers are asking that you leave the beer at home.
If you want to ride tomorrow, meet the Disco Divas at the China Gorge park n’ ride for the Whoopdee trail at 8:30.
Coming up this weekend, it’s the wildside relay, an outrigger canoe and surfski race from Stevenson to Bingen, so keep an eye out for all the boats on the water!
Have an awesome day today!
