Meanwhile... eddvick has blogged his recent trip to Portland, including our expedition to Glowing Greens, a pirate-themed underground black-lighted (blacklit?) miniature golf course. It was, as amy_thomson said, like playing mini-golf in a cheap carnival dark ride, but it was fun and very silly.
And if Edd ever invites you to mini-golf? Beware. Total shark.
