which brings me to ask:
what kind of singles valentines day events will be happening in fair portland on/around valentines day? i always think to ask way to late to be able to hook up or go to an event, so i figured id ask early this time :)!!!
The absolutely gorgeous weather we have been having recently has been making me itchy to be outside, so what are some of your favorite hiking trails around these here parts? I am trying to keep it to about a 30 min. drive from downtown maximum.
What is a good online source to find out about all concerts/artistic happenings in Portland? Esp. if they have it all the way through the beginning of march... Thank youuuu.
Ok ok so its an event in Vancouver but I figured I would post in DamnPortlanders just incase any of you are interested. I have been to some of the dances before (I'm DEFINITELY a beginner) and they are pretty fun. I haven't been to one with live music yet though. Anyone who is interested in coming along feel free. The more the merrier :)

Tell me, oh wise portlanders who know everything: is there a good sauna in town?
I am looking for a place where I can rent a steam room and maybe a small pool or spa for two hours and have the owners abstain from offering me erotic massage, escort services, or chemical substances as a part of a package.
Ideally, they should not mind the fact that Russians find it acceptable to bring a mixed-gender company into the sauna, pour herbal teas on the hot rocks, and ... yes, the rumor is true ... beat each other with tree branches.
INLAND EMPIRE is playing at the Hollywood Theater tonight and I can't make it.
Does anybody know when and where it will show in Portland again?
I’m posting this on the part of my father. Please contact him if you’re interested!
One of the things that prevents people from getting deeper into classical music on the radio is the attitude of the DJs. Ask someone to imitate a classical DJ and what do they do? They lift their nose in the air and talk like a broomstick is positioned just so. Portland’s public classical station is trying to break that stereotype and present the best classical music from across the ages in a totally down to earth manner. Real people talking to real people, no tuxedo required. More like a corduroy shirt and a good cup of coffee.
If you love classical music and you can communicate that love to others, an opportunity has just opened up that you should know about. We’re looking for something and someone different. A new concept. Different. A 21st Century classical DJ. We’re paying particular attention to females because we currently have none on the air, and that’s out of balance. I’m the Program Director, John Dodge, and if this message has poked a stick in your imagination, please contact me at email@example.com.
OK, my fellow Portlanders, I need some recommendations.
One of the speakers in my car is completely blown. Given the fact that I spend nearly two hours in my car every day for my commute, this really can't go on.The way it stands now, even Corey Flintoff's voice has too much bass for my sound system to handle.
What are your recommendations for a good, reasonable, and reliable place to get my speakers replaced (and, possibly, a new car stereo while I'm at it)? I don't need anything super-fancy, just something functional.
Thanks so much!
