My womanfriend and I are both born and bred in the bible belt and get that cravin' fer a bit of good 'ol down home southern type a' cookin' every now and again.More specific,my womanfriend gets pregnant woman type a' cravin's fer the "WAFFLE HOUSE" (those of you from the SE part of the country can probably appreciate the trashiness in this,if anything) and were wondering,is there anywhere 'round these here parts that,in any way,resemble the good 'ol WH?
We gots ourselves a car and can travel purdy far.
Please let us know yer recomendations,frien's.
But seriously... he was just great! It was so cool seeing him do a solo show... just him and a piano/guitar.
He talked about Portland a lot... apparently he bought some clogs here! And saw heroin addicts throwing suitcases of clothes out the window of an apartment over Jake's Famous Crawfish? Go figure.
My halibut in orange basil sauce was essentially fish sticks in Tang syrup. When the server brought our food to the table, he asked us whether we knew which dish was which. The vegetables were very clearly of the Flav-R-Pac variety (including squishy shriveled peas). And, to make matters worse, my wife's chicken curry dish came, inexplicably (and with no indication on the menu), with mussels and scallops. If someone had been allergic to shellfish and this happened? They'd have been screwed. We went along with it, and thank goodness we had at least the Clipper Magazine coupon to mitigate some of the (over) price.
Do not be enticed! Throw your coupon away. Bangkok Corner could not Thai food their way out of a paper bag.

I just needs me a sticker and a yardsign.
And maybe one of these, just fer giggles:
This has absolutely nothing to do with PDX, whatsoever.

Laurelhurst 'hood. Right by Music Millennium, Black Hole, Joan D'Arc statue that was tackily re-gold-leafed, the church that hosts the Greek fest...? You know, you can use tons of Crayolas to mark on the butcher paper and pizza boxes!
I keep thinking Flying Pie, but I'm almost positive that's the place over in Montavilla that uses waaay too much meat.
How hard can it be to find the delicious veggie calzone of my youth? :(
I can only assume, if I need to use the ESC key, there is no way around it aside from a new keyboard?

I have a slew of "haircut place" posts saved. What I'm looking for is a place that isn't overly expensive and has a hairdresser who's reliably good with "ethnic" (black) hair, particularly short cuts (I'm not looking for someone to give me a weave).
Can anyone vouch for some salons in Porland? Reviews?
I drive by it every day on my way home from work and just now read about it. Even knowing the history behind it, I don't think I've got the guts to give it a shot. Much like The Trap.
