I'm gonna be at the Hilton on 6th street until Friday. Are these places close to where I am. I don't have a car and will be walking.

Yeah, you're right downtown, so close to a lot of things. And if anything is farther than walking distance, there is a streetcar that runs throughout downtown and good public transportation throughout Portland. You're like a 10 minute walk from Frances May, which is only four minutes away from the Blackbox building (Tanner Goods, Dunderdon, Blackbird). Also only a few minutes from Higgins restaurant, which I think is pretty great---world class service, an immense beer selection, and excellent food.
I don't know what kind of stuff you're into, but:
Wordstock is this weekend if you're into literature.
Well, Wordstock that I mentioned above is one. Of the resources I linked, Portland Monthly Magazine has the most curated list of events. I think Portland Fashion Week will still have events going on this weekend. Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Tattoo Expo. I don't know what else, and I can't help on the dance party front, sorry.
The men's clothing store in Morgan's Alley (I can't remember the name) is having a going out of business sale this Friday from 5-8pm. Everything is 40-70% off, if I recall correctly. Morgan's Alley is 515 SW Broadway, where European Master Tailor is. I'm not sure what they carry, since I never went in, but it looked decent from the windows.
Yeah, Sylvian is great! I've had him do a couple sportcoats and a bunch of trousers, including adding side tabs to a pair after hemming them. He understands tailoring, and we've worked together to get things how I went them. He has his own ideas, but he's been getting more of a sense of how I like things to fit. Very pleased with our interactions and his tailoring.
