andina isn't impossible to get into iirc, but call at least a day or two ahead. I went with a prix fixe menu but they also have open menus that have all of the options available on the set dinner. Also check out deschutes and rogue, although im burned out by rogue because they are peppered across the west coast now (at least where ive lived). I cant think of the good titty bars but just ask the locals. The girls that work the clubs are bangin too...

 

Actually now that I think of it I think my sister's bf recommended acrop, but he may have been half joking...

Is cheap housing relatively accessible in pdx?  Starting to plan out where I'm going to apply for summer internships and I definitely can't afford new york

that depends on about a million things.

 

price range? length of stay? where will you be working? how are you gonna get around? how picky are you? etc etc etc.

 

as a general rule - pdx is cheaper than sf and nyc, but not nearly as cheap as it was 5-10 years ago.

 

craiglist will give you a pretty decent idea of the range tho.

planning a trip to portland at the end of march and have begun browsing airbnb for a place to stay for ~4 days or so. what's a good neighborhood/area to stay in? looking for an area where going out for good food and shopping would be convenient to get to (either by walking or a short ride on public transit) im guessin downtown would be a good bet from perusing this thread

if you want to be in the downtown/pearl area, look for a condo/loft in the pearl.

 

Close in (7-20th) Central eastside will put you near most of the better eats and bars, look to be near a street with a bus line - burnside, belmont, hawthorne, division.

I'll be in Portland later this month for two days, one night. Staying at the Ace Hotel again.

 

Tasty and Alder 

Clyde Commons

Kenny and Zuke’s Delicatessen

Gruner

Lardo

 

Any other suggestions on places to eat within walking distance of Ace? Food cart suggestions work too.

i'd recommend blue star doughnuts for sure. it's right next to lardo. 

 

also, the pastrami is A++ at K&Z but if you've got the time/desire, def try the thanksgiving sandwich.

I had the pastrami last time I was there. So good. I might be able to hit K&Z twice. 

 

I'll probably skip Gruner, tbh. Looks like it might be a bit too formal and I'm going to be going solo.

Depending on what night of the week you'll be here, I'd check out Multnomah Whiskey Library too if your a whiskey drinker. Cool atmosphere, but can be a pain to get into on weekends. I'd go put your name down, walk to dinner, and then come back for a drink post-meal.

The Saucebox is a really great american/asian fusion spot. The happy hour food is really well priced.

hey sufu,

 

going to Portland to get eloped this coming week. 

 

been plenty of times, so pretty set on all the cheap & chill bars & eats we'd like to hit up, BUT, i'd like some recommendations for the ever-so-elusive house music scene - any specific recommendations for spots to hit up for some potentially minimal, deep, & groovy step-touching with my forever lady?

 

thanks in advance sirs & madams!

sorry, my use of english was pretty horrible there. 

 

somehow "this coming week" [in my mind] described April 21st - 30th... /fail

 

anything happening THAT week you know of? ;)

 

should i keep my eye on those venues in particular? or even better, might you have any promotion companies that typically handle this genre of EDM whose pages i can look up?

 

also, thanks!

Not house, but shlomo is playing branx friday.

also friday is cockpit, i think this is house oriented.

will check back if I hear anything before then.

Rose bar may be worth looking up. Holocene doesnt have much coming up of interest.

heading out the pdx for the first time this summer... a friend swears by the jupiter hotel for its location, other than its borderline unbearable tacky decor, is that the right area to shoot for in terms of stumbling around late?  obligatory shopping expedition to selfedge notwithstanding
