With all that sustainability going on, there is, of course, room to poke fun of it. And why not, when things like restaurant owners getting into “teachable moments” like fistfights over whether pigs are local enough
or not also happen in Portland?
will begin airing “Portlandia,” a comedy show that is filmed in real locations in Portland, in January. The show stars Fred Armisen from “Saturday Night Live” and vocalist/guitarist Carrie Brownstein, of Portland based band Sleater-Kinney.
I found this 30-second promo for Portlandia very funny – especially the part about the chicken. If you’re a sustainable foodie or you’re from Portland, I hope you found it funny, too.
