What Makes Little Big Burger Such A Big Deal?

We’ve got a few reasons:

  1. They’re quick and to the point: We all know that too many choices can be overwhelming. Little Big Burger’s limited menu expedites the ordering process, and helps guests focus on the simplicity of savoring the flavor of a good, old-fashioned burger.
  2. They use quality ingredients: Their patties are made with a 1/4 lb. of cascade natural beef, brioche buns, local cheeses, fresh veggies and Camden’s Catsup. Even better? Ingredients are delivered fresh daily.
  3. The price is right: Every menu item costs less than $5. Quality ingredients at a reasonable price can be pretty tough to beat!
  4. An enjoyable environment: Little Big Burger is the place to be if you’re looking for a burger joint with a fun ambiance. The communal-style arrangement of their seating and their killer playlist make it a fun, casual, upbeat place to hang out while you dine out.

… And that’s not even counting their legendary truffle fries or famous fry sauce. The next time you’re in our neighborhood, drop in for a quick bite and see for yourself why Little Big Burger is one of Portland’s favorite burger joints! Their storefront is located on NE Holladay in Velomor, right in front of the 7th & Holladay MAX stop.

By: Management

Instead of making promises to yourself about keeping your apartment tidy, start cultivating long-term habits by setting reachable daily goals. These daily routines are the crucial bridge that transform resolutions into reality. Here are a few tips to help get you started!

New Year’s resolutions are as much a holiday tradition as “Auld Lang Syne,” but often don’t last much beyond Groundhog Day. Many of us make resolutions to keep a tidier home. Instead of making promises to yourself about keeping your apartment tidy, start cultivating long-term habits by setting reachable daily goals. These daily routines are the crucial bridge that transform resolutions into reality. Here are a few tips to help get you started!

Make Time

Make some time in your schedule to do something that gets you closer to meeting your New Year’s resolutions each day, no matter how small. Maybe you hate cleaning your whole apartment. Why not break it down into smaller, more tolerable projects? If you have two minutes of idle time between work and the gym, it’s not a big deal to pick up a rag and wipe down your desk or a bookshelf – but tackling a different spot in your home each day can make a difference! Make it fun by setting a timer after dinner, then zipping around scooping up toys, doing a quick vacuum and sorting socks.

Know Thyself

“I’d wipe down the shower here, but the sponge is in the kitchen and the spray is in the car.” Sound familiar? Spend a few bucks on cleaning supplies for each room. If keeping track of too many tools/supplies makes you less likely to accomplish a task, take shortcuts by purchasing disposable wipes (earth-friendly options are available). Another change you can make to improve the cleanliness of your home is to use the “Now or Never” mantra when you come across small tasks that should be done. If you notice that the bathroom garbage needs to be emptied, and you have the time to take it out, just do it now – otherwise, you never will!

Make One Change

Just adding one new habit to your lifestyle can lead to a more efficient home. Try to think of ways that you can add something to your daily routine, without interrupting it. For example, unloading the dishwasher while waiting for the pasta water to boil, or putting something away where it usually “lives” the minute you pick it up, instead of just moving it to a different surface.
