Carrie reconnects with mixologist she knows from camp in ‘Portlandia’

Carrie Brownstein reconnects with a guy she knows from camp at a bar where he’s now a hotshot mixologist in the “Mixologist” episode of Portlandia (Season 2, Episode 1).

The mixologist is played by Andy Samberg. After making Carrie the best drink she’s ever had, Fred is convinced that the mixologist is in love with her. Later they track him down at a meat market bar where he’s behaving more like a bartender than a mixologist.

Having trouble getting his attention so she can give him the “Mix Drinks” mixtape she made him, Carrie starts singing the Camp Portland song and he snaps out of his bartender routine, takes off his sunglasses and starts singing along.

Long live Camp Portland
Fall and winter spring there is only rain
Campin’ out in Oregon
Where all of our bonds will never break
But if one of us should stray
We shall find them in the night

On the banks of the Willamette
We pitch our tents and catch some fish
Frying it up under the cloudy stars
To make a delicious fishy dish
