This might be the most Portland metro thing ever. (And it’s awesome)
Auburn fucking suckssssssssss.
Trip got pushed to March for me. Still excited.
duc15 March 6th come to Portland and let's go to the Blazers/Knicks game?
Do the trailblazers sell out a bunch?
12 hours in Portland what do you do? Flying in Sunday March 4th. Leave for Spokane Monday and flying out of Spokane on Wednesday.
Is there an official PDX thread?

i don't think so. Lyrtch and Handcuffed know stuff too
Heading down to Portland next weekend for my first real weekend. I'm heading down Friday, GF isn't coming until Saturday. Got an Airbnb on border of Pearl and Northwest Districts.
-Good casual date restaurant for Sat
-Any must-dos re: food or landmarks would be appreciated
-Where should I go Friday night
Muchos gracias amigos
I don’t have entirely much to offer. But gross
Sounds fair imo
Serious? You think hotels are a model of cleanliness?
All I know is prepare for rain.
Not quite. I’m just acutely aware of the impact that Airbnb has on locals
Ex novo brewery is awesome. It's a non profit but makes awesome beer. I stop by stormbreaker brewery when in city because the bartenders are really cool and make amazing mixed drinks too.
And head downtown with a huge appetite and gorge on food trucks imvho
Oh my god shut up this is the most Portland post ever
How casual? Ataula would be my move although getting in can be a little tricky. Reservations anywhere probably not going to be available. Also across the river is Mississippi Ave if your GF likes hitting multiple places, wife and I started at Ecliptic and worked our way North to make a day of it hitting Por Que No (three stacks), Lovely's 50/50, and Radar just getting cocktails/small plates.
I've only been to the mainstream breweries, but Deschutes/10 Barrel/Fathead are all good just for hanging out downtown, can go to Powells and shit while in the area. Can walk between those three.
Kens Artisan Bakery is a little West and unbelievable just for coffee/baked goods. It gets national recognition.
Friday I'd hit somewhere like Little Bird Bistro then wander that area, some good taprooms (Baileys Taproom).
soulfly is from central washington
and from a city that has not experienced the impact of airbnb, ironically
We don’t even have Uber.
is he just talking over tourism?
he's referring to things like this
Ate at Pok Pok last night, it was pretty incredible. Great Thai. Those fucking fish sauce wings. Then walked across the street to Paymaster Lounge and drank/played games until going to sleep. Awesome dive bar.
Woke up, explored the Pearl disrict—Stumptown Coffee, Powell’s Books, lunch and beers at Deschutes. Currently at Breakside Brewing, about to catch an uber to Mississippi Ave to continue exploring.
Powell’s rare book room was so damn cool. Book autographed by Nikola Tesla, original journal account from Lewis and Clark, one of the first prints of Darwin’s ‘On the Origin of Species.’ Several original books from the late 1400-1500s.
I see you, PDX
Ecliptic has a giant porch on Miss Ave. Margaritas at Por Que No with chips/guac is a killer way to spend an hour, but that place is cramped.
Por que no is legitimate
Would venture to stormbreaker brewery as well, like a block away iirc
Stormbreaker is on the itinerary
If the big bearded 400 pounder is working, he makes some of the mixed drinks you will ever find
unfortunately the Tiffin Asha and Gabagool food trucks that used to be parked next to Stormbreaker went and opened brick and mortar spots
good for them, bad for people on Miss Ave
There are about 23 food trucks on Miss Ave I plan on hitting. Seems realistic
Wolf and Bear is fantastic food truck just like a block up from Stormbreaker, the Out to Lunch wrap with their hot sauce is the best thing there.
(The month my wife got put up in an apartment on Miss Ave for work and I came up on a few weekends was dope.)
Who all is in Portland? Joe_Pesci Celemo ?
in downtown for the evening/night. Brewdogs
Troutdale for me, so not super close. But I have trivia league tonight :/
I’m heading to back pedal brewing. Hit me with some dinner recs in downtown POR FAVOR
Mediterranean Exploration Company and Tasty n Alder aren't far from there
Tasty is one of my favorites, probably going to be a wait
if you want real casual Lardo and Grassa are there too. Baileys taproom good beer bar too.
Ive eaten at Tasty n Alder, real good—but only for lunch. Bartender also suggested Med Exploration Co.
Eaten at Andina? Think it’s between there and Tasty
adina is awesome. Will probably be a wait.
Do they have a bar?
Google images show a bar. Think I’m gonna try Andina
Andinas tapas are great
Just sat down at the bar at Andina after a brief pitstop at Oregon’s Finest.
Joe_Pesci I’m offended, maybe even appalled, that you stood me up
BamaNug honestly i would have invited you to trivia but the location is ~20 miles away from downtown. that seemed like a big ask, especially if you want to enjoy the cool parts of portland
one of the questions was basically, "which African song does MLK reference at the end of his I Have a Dream speech"
we submitted Kumbaya
I actually said "free at last" but the consensus was that is not a song
Hello comrades. I’ll be in your city at the end of February.
Random casual recommendation: shalom ya'll. Bills itself as "israeli street food" and is f'n delicious.
Obviously that is the famous closing line, what was the name of the song?
just now seeing this...I'm in Salem. I would've come up last night though I had nothing going on
