    Any good stores in Salem? For that matter, anyone know of anything worth doing around Salem? I'm heading down there for school. Last semester I don't think I found a single person who could tell me something fun/interesting to do around town. Hopefully I'll have time to catch a bus into Portland one weekend and visit Blackbird etc.

    Thanks, I'll have to check that out. I haven't heard about it which is surprising since its only a few blocks away from the school. Only bar I've been to is The Ram.

    Rudy's is decent albeit kind of annoying at the same time. Good for a 20 dollar cut though.

    Oh hey, it's Portland in here.

    I liked the cut I got at Rooks, $25.

    Did anybody else go to Content tonight? If you don't know, Content is an event in which designers have free reign over their installation in a room of the Ace Hotel.

    I thought it was interesting---not a very "Portland-y" event, in the way that I tend to think of it, but maybe I just don't travel in the right circles. I personally enjoyed the rooms that focused more on displaying their items than on being installation art. Some of them were inaccessible because they seemed like a designer just hanging out with their friends.

    I don't know what the point of the room with the mime was... I can't remember what designer they were representing. (http://yfrog.com/h6y4hqqj)

    On that note, I think Tanner Goods had my favorite installation. The goods were well-presented, there were some interesting leatherworking tools around, I got a free pencil, and they were just very open and inviting. I also liked the Draught Dry Goods merchandise---some quality bags and leather goods that are lighter than those from Tanner. Of the more conceptual spaces, I did like the one from Pattern People, which was a peephole into a room covered with bright and interesting patterns.

    I didn't make it to any of the after party events because I have a cold...

    I was there too! My buddy from Blackbird got us in fo free haha. It was a pretty bizarre event, but very cool nonetheless. Sort of funny, it was the first Portland event I've been to where I actually saw people wearing designer or high end labels.
