NW walking tour in Portland beginning at Clear Creek Distillery

From downtown cab ride to Clear Creek Distillery, probably do the 11 am or 1 pm tour.
Walk down 23rd Avenue eventually hitting 23Hoyt for happy hour that starts at 3 pm
Next Ken's Artisan Bakery (hopefully there by 6pm closing)
Next to Saint Cupcake
Next Dinner at Deschutes Brewery
Maybe Voodoo Doughnuts

My main concern is our walk from the distillery to 23Hoyt. Google maps estimated this walk to be about 20 min. Nice or not so nice area for girls to be walking? Debating on if we should opt for Bar Mingo for happy hour and Paley's Place for dinner.

    I'd say that's about 15 minutes, perfectly nice area.

    St. Cupcake is overrated. Same for Voodoo. Strictly for tourists who get their info from CitySearch.

    Ken's and Clear Crk are must-dos. Also on the way, and well worth it even were it out of the way: Sahagun Chocolate. http://www.sahagunchocolates.com/ Incredible stuff. Hot chocolate you can eat with a fork. Single-origin handmade truffles & other creations that will change your life!

    Taking a cab is a waste of money that can better be spent on chocolate. Take the 17 bus on 6th Ave. http://trimet.org/

    Have fun. Please report back!

        You're welcome.

        http://cocodonuts.com/ is very near Sahagun. Get the coco donut.

        Also consider Ten01 for happy hour.
