Sparty in Portland

“Thin Business Sparty” is traveling the world with Broad College students, faculty, staff, and alumni as they pursue study abroad, research, and other means of making business happen globally. Follow his travels here. Going on a trip yourself? Recruit your own Thin Business Sparty.


Sparty is on vacation in the Pacific Northwest with alumna Anna Spindler (’93). Her note:

“We had breakfast this morning at one of my favorite places in Portland, Oregon, called Besaw’s. I worked here after college for a short time in 1995. Since then, the owners and the location have changed, but the food is still hearty, healthy, and down-right fabulous. Here is Sparty with the owner Cana, who has expanded Besaw’s over the last 10 years without losing its small-town, personable feel. Sparty and I both agree that Besaw’s is well worth a visit if any other Spartans are on the West Coast.”
