The Ultimate Portland (OR) Shopping Thread - Page 20

post #286 of 488

The Circuit last night was MUCH more crowded than I've ever seen it on a weekend! A pretty solid line of people watching pretty much every wall. I've never been on a weekday because of my job, so I can't compare. I imagine it's because people who like bouldering tend to like doing things outside on the weekends, unlike me.


Places to hang out in Portland? Coffee shops! Heart, Coava, Ristretto are all very good. Even good ol' Stumptown. The Eastside isn't deserted, it just doesn't have the downtown office crowd during the day. People gather at bars at night, including downtown and near downtown. If you're into it, there's Ground Kontrol just north of downtown---it's a bar/arcade. There are also a handful of movie theaters---some very cheap---that serve beer (Laurelhurst, Cinema 21, Living Room, Bagdad).  If you want to go for a walk, the Japanese Garden and the neighboring arboretum are nice (the former has an entry fee).

Downtown seems kind of lame, especially at night... but east of the river seems deserted?

lets see,
bring a book and maybe play some giant wizard jenga in cornel sumners park on the weekends, also bellydancing/poi/hula hoop club meets there. easy to score the chron.
explore forest park
walk up mt tabor and catch the sunset *highly recommend*
sit in any brewery or beer spot (hair of the dog, upright, lucky lab, base camp)
wait in line at screen door
go out to sauvies island if you have a car and get fruits

We tried once(?) but it didn't happen. I still want to. The Woodlands/Tanner party this Saturday might be the closest thing.

I'm gonna try to make it over to the TG/Woodlands party Saturday, later in the day. It's always a good time.

If anyone's looking, I'll be the tall dude w/ the cute, curly blonde haired toddler (subjective, but confirmed by numerous un-invested parties). Can't miss him.
