Life can throw you a few curveballs, but if you're lucky you can knock 'em out of the park. When I ran out of food, the best was meeting up with friends at Stumptown Brewery. The kitchen is closed on Tuesdays. No! You can grill your own burger instead. Yes!
So that's what we did. We also met some terrific people visiting from San Francisco. Meeting energetic people at a bar is also nice because they usually have the most enthusiasm to do things. We teamed up on the burgers and got our new friends to cook them all for us (actually, our new friend's boyfriend did most of the work).
