During the holidays I am having a friend visit. We want to go into Portland to go bar hopping (I live in Tigard near Washington Square) and don't want to drive when we have been drinking. Public transport to/from Tigard sucks. I am hoping that someone out there in DP land knows what I should expect to pay for a cab. Does anyone have any "favorite" cab companies or know of any I should avoid?
Thanks for your help,
Ok, has anyone tried Hope in a Jar by Philosophy? I was considering going & getting some tomorrow & am curious to see if anyone has a story to tell me about it.
Nostalgia is a funny thing. We have all this technology and all these amazing games...and yet, some of the best times in recent history I can think about is sitting around and playing 80's or 90's video/computer games. Don't get me wrong...I have my PS2 and love that damn thing, but there's something to be said for wanting to play all those old games with the "crappy" graphics and midi sound.
I've been playing Warcraft II, Lode Runner : The Legend Returns (Oh man, this used to run so sweet on my Mac back in the day), Descent and Descent II (Fuck that Star Wars shit...Descent is the true master of space battles), and the like. Hell, I even asked Santa for Super Mario Brothers 3 for my GBA SP (really, one of the best SMB games evar...add Super Mario 64 and you've got yourself 2 incredible games).
What are some games that you used to play, oh wise DP? Get my mind jumping for those oldies but goodies.
Can anyone recomend a good day care either downtown or near the Hawthorn/Belmont area that is state certified and takes infants under 1 year old? All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Why in the hell is it that in portland you must dial the area code when making even local calls? Does anywhere else do this? Where Im from,(arizona) we just dial xxx-xxxx It confuses me (which, incidentally is not that difficult) Ive always wondered. Ive been here 4 years but I never found out why portland does this. Man that was a sorry attempt at bitching about something. It really turned into more of a polite question. I suck, Ill do better next time. Maybe you guys can give me some pointers :D
My boyfriend & I usually frequent the Yamhill on Friday nights simply because the Pabst is cheap & the jukey is loaded with awesome music. But we're looking for more places to play at with the following criteria:
1) CHEAP beer/booze
2) Good music on the jukey (we hate kareoke. Hate it. HATE IT)
3) MAX accessible, or bus stop fairly close to MAX accessible (long bus rides when drunk really blow)
Where do you loverly people reccomend we go to get tanked tonight?
I had an apartment all set-up and ready to go, and it turns out now the guy is not going to leave, leaving me with nothing and I have to be out of my place in a week 1/2.
I have been checking every resource possible, and I'm not coming up with much. I have one place I am taking a look at tonight, but other than that coming up empty handed.
I'm looking for something 475 or less, that takes a cat, preferably in SE (I will go around 82nd and Burnside area too) Even NE (Nothing past alberta). At this point, I am willing to take a room if someone has it until I can find something for myself.
I'm really in a bind. Please help?
Anyone else going to see Stephen Lynch at the Crystal Ballroom on Jan 6? I just got my tickets! ;D
Here's the deal for real:
Petrolium products such as heating oiland natural gas are REALLY expensive:
Stores are worried that when people see their first heat bill they will stop shopping
That's what's going on.
Forget how bitter most of you feel about Christmas. I LOVE the holidays and they don't have to be all about consumerism! In my family holidays are about good food, good laughs, and lots of warmth...
SOOOOO...what is YOUR favorite holiday (and it can be ANY holiday) tradition?
I have a gigantic catholic family and every year, rather than buying gifts for everybody, we all spend about $5 (give or take) on little door prize type things. We put them ALL in a basket and we play Bingo until the prizes are gone. I'm always amazed by how much fun it is to play bingo for silly prizes but we ALWAYS have a good time.
Man, I posted this on craigslist and didn't get a bite ... well, long story short - I have an extra ticket to the Rumi Celebration tonight in downtown with Coleman Barks, and all I want is someone to use it! Of course, it'd be great if we had more then Rumi in common, but really, what else is there? I'm currently online at work but I won't be able to check my email until I get off work at 6pm. The doors open at 6:30pm.
If you'd like to come (gelasia are you out there?!) please email me (hypercube @ hell . com) and I'll give you the address ... yeah, I know, short notice - blame craigslist!
I hope to see you there :o)
I am trying to find an individual in Portland of whom I have lost contact with....
I have tried all the OL avenues of approach,but to no avail..
The persons name is/was:
Steve Helswig,he lives/lived up by Sandy Blvd,would frequent the clubs,bars around that area,mostly Buehland,and also the Tiger Bar......Sometimes The Ash Street Saloon.
I thought I would resort to asking you 'care bears' on here !
Oh,he is/was old skule punk!
anyone know where i can buy a button maker (the 1" pinback kind) in portland?
Apparently there were some more gang shootings last night in the Portland area and a guy was killed, so I'd like to take the time to send out a message to all of these sheep-like morons that are bringing down great cities like Portland and its suburbs:
GET OUT OF OUR STATE PLEASE.
does anyone know the address of the website with sex ofender/criminal registry where you can look up if there are any in your neighborhood?
I tried googling it but no luck. I remember there being a website however where you can search for such things.
Now that I know of the top-of-the-line coffee houses, please share your favorite restaurants in the SE area that aren't elegantly expensive. I am particularly interested in cheap chinese food, delicious pizza, and good thai food.
