So my b-day is coming up- june 11 and my boyfriends is the 12th so we were planning on having a party together on the 11th. But we need a place to have needs to be an all niter because many of ours friends work late that night but would still like to join us and it has to be minor friendly because a few of our friends are 19 and 20. And we need a place that can hold about 30 people...Any suggestions?

This might be a little too much info, or too whiny, or too personal or whatever for this community so I posted it behind a cut.

I have spent 12 years dealing with this and I cant take the incompetence of Vancouver doctors anymore. My question is, can anyone recommend to me a good reliable doctor or stomach doctor in Portland that will be able to treat me or at least find out for sure what the hell is wrong with my body? I am to the point where the next time a doctor blows me off as faking it they are getting bitch slapped.

Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to provide. You guys are the best!


For the first time since I've been back from college I headed out to the Pied Cow tonight and discovered that they've changed the age at which you can order a hookah to 21 (actually, it was apparently always at 21, they just never really enforced it until recently). I'm 18 and would love to find a place somewhere in Portland where I can get order one, any suggestions?
I'd also like to take my sister, who is 17, so anywhere they don't exactly care would be great as well.

What to do...

There's a high chance I'll be in Portland on June 10th, burning some time for a few hours (with my car) while my boyfriend goes to the 8 p.m. Devil Driver show at the Roseland. Anyone have suggestions for fun things to do around that time, earlier or later?

I chose the wrong topic...

Does anyone know how or where I could find out exactly how many music venues there actually are in Portland?? I haven't been able to find a consistent number...but I am not the master of the internet that some are!

also I am looking for an interview with a local who works at a record label or books shows in the area. Very small informal interview, basically looking for a quote to slide into a report. Support education! If you are one of these people and wouldnt mind dropping me a blurb, let me know, thanks!

I need storage for a studio apartment's worth of stuff for the summer. I've looked online, but most of the places are to expensive. My limit is 60$ a month. I'd like it to be close-ish to downtown, but that isn't completely necessary.

Thanks in advance.

Bishop's Barbershops

I desperately need a haircut and I hear that Bishop's is the place to go. I'm wondering how far in advance I need to make an appointment. If I call tomorrow, is it likely they'll be able to cut my hair tomorrow or the next day?

Edit: I guess the second location is on Columbia, not Hawthorne.

Anybody got a recommendation for a carpet cleaner, in Portland or Vancouver? And also, do you have any idea how much getting a one bedroom cleaned would be? Thanks y'all.

[edit:] Landlord has specified that it has to be professionally done. So no Rug Doctors.

Damn you Portlanders! I fell in love with ur city!

First of all, thank you pdxers for a great time.

I really had great time at Portland this memorial day weekend and we had lots of fun touring the nature reserve around the Columbia River specially the waterfalls around the area with the highlight at the Multnomah Falls. My friend and I also visited the Grotto, Japanese Garden, Arboretum, International Rose Test Garden, Stark Area, Pearl District, Pioneer Place, Downtown Area, Lloyd Center, Riverside and the Open market where I got a $5 punk rock studded belt :P!

Getting around was very easy because of the fareless square and when we just walked around, there were always lots to see....lots of beautiful people, friendly faces and interesting venues.

The nightlife was also great and I had fun drinking and partying with a good friend. I saw several clubs suggested by several people like H20 and Club Inferno but never got the chance to go there since we went to Silverado and 3 Sisters tavern :P

The restaurants were very ecclectic and we had a great time looking around and tasting all different kind of cuisines from Todai seafood buffet, Chinese Dimsum and lunch/dinner buffet, Quiznoz, Carls Jr. and Mongolian Cove. We were planing to try other ones like Thai, Peruvian, Egyptian and Vietnamese but there were not just enough time.

Too bad there was no filipino restaurant.

Some memorable experience from this trip was seeing a wedding at the Grotto, the grotto tour, seeing a group of girls celebrate a bachelorette party :P, and going around and getting lost without having to worry about safety though I saw a crackhead or two acting hilarious and just being stupid.

It's definitely worth coming back and maybe next time, we could even visit Seaside, Or!

I just wished I had taken more pics of downtown....

Can't find that website!!!!

Hello fellow DP'ers. This isn't at all Portland related, but I know someone in this group has to have a sick sense of humor and know what site I'm looking for. It's the comic site that has great strips like the hammer kicking the screwdriver's ass when he finds that he screwed his wife, the block of wood. I've been searching for hours. Any help?
