I've been to Sacramento a bit. You should move here. You'll get used to the rain--it will let you wear more of your wardrobe.

thanks man, Portland is everything Sac isnt. it was even sunny the entire time i was there, hot even by some standards. there's something cool going on in that city, especially for a traveler. having just traveled europe for 6 weeks - paris, london, amsterdam, barcelona, italy, prague, and budapest - i would say portland is as much fun and entertaining for a weekend as any city i recently visited. i think ill plan a portland/seattle trip next time im in the area

Pok Pok and Le Pigeon are two excellent choices if you can only have two dinners in Portland. Stumptown might be good, but it's not even the best coffee in Portland!

 

Rontoms and Dig a Pony, though... they attract a pretty douchey clientele much of the time. I like the Tannery. I'm also looking forward to the re-opening of Beaker and Flask: focusing more heavily on the bar will, I think, be good for them.

^ I agree with only half of your assessment; I think I was the only prick with shell boots in there. Lol I'll have to visit beaker and flask next time I'm there

Agreed. But that also means that's the only place chicks will be, like 21st's bars.

Im getting booted out of my epic hawthorne rental, landlords selling the condo. Putting a 2bed/2bath on market for 399. epic lulz are being had at this price. Next door unit just went on market for 350, for same unit. I guess the pearl isnt the only place where idiots are being gouged.

Rental market game is awfuly tight right now, so it got me thinking about buying a small house instead. Even fucking worse. All these new condos being built on division may help take some pressure off and add inventory, but isnt the vacancy rate in the pearl pretty high on condos?

Anyone have any rental resources besides padmapper/CL/zillow?

Non boring housing content:

The new old lompoc in NW has had a pretty solid renovation, good place for beers in the ABC zone.

Joined circuit bouldering gym for a month while im on grand jury, place is rad. tons of climbing babes. anyone here go?
post #280 of 416

Portland housing market is really annoying. I have no advice, but much sympathy for the rental process...

 

I started bouldering at the Circuit last month! Hah. Which one do you go to? The one in NE off Sandy is right by my apartment. I was actually thinking about going tonight after work.

post #281 of 416
yeah i goto the NE one. Taking a day or two off, got some weird tendonitis type elbow pains from climbing too much.

Does it get pretty slammed after work? Seems busy even during the day. Jobless dirtbags.
post #282 of 416
On that note... anyone else here into running? I usually hit a variation of the bridge, esplanade loop 5 times a week. Get at me if you'd be into it!
post #283 of 416

Ill hit you up a couple times a week? about how longs the trail? I usually run indoors but when the sun starts coming out for I'd be down for some outdoor running.

I don't know yet, I've only been on weekends so far. But I'll report back the first time I go after work.

 

After the last time I went (~1.5 weeks ago) I had that kind of elbow pain, too, but it's gone now. Overuse of those tiny stabilizer muscles I guess.

Where does one go in Portland to just sort of hang out if there's nothing specific to do on a day? I've been going to Portland down from Washington a few times a month for the last year or so to see my bespoke tailor; if there's no one to hang out with I tend to go to Powell's, run up council crest, try to find a walk somewhere ( any tips?), or just meander down hawthorne. Downtown seems kind of lame, especially at night... but east of the river seems deserted?
