I feel like a dunce because I didn't talk to you much after things got going at the meet-up last night, but who was it that I was talking about Flight of the Conchords with? I am bad with names!
It was stellar as hell meeting you all last night, as well!
Where is a good place to watch Hockey in this town? Wings play the Avs tomorrow and I need somewhere to go with big tvs and beer that will ACTUALLY play hockey and maybe have hockey fans there.
This may be a long shot as I've never even seen the word "golf" posted here but...
I'm supposed to golf this weekend with a friend who has golfed 3 times in his life so I need to find a 9 hole course that's cheap and good for beginner's (I'm in the western pdx burbs and he's in that city north of the big river so location isn't really a huge concern, but north is preferable I guess.)
Name as many as you can, please:
1) Movies containing broken legs
2) Movies about trees (bonus points for lumberjacks, falling trees)
You can connect the dots on this one, probably. :P
HAY PORTLAND, I need your help!
What are your recommendations for Best Karaoke on a Friday Night? It *must* be a Friday, because it's for an already-planned birthday gathering.
An ideal establishment would have:
1) Good song selection (I like to rawk!)
2) Space for more than a few people (no idea how many people are coming with)
3) Not-too-crowded, but also not-too-dead (don't want to wait 2 hours to sing a song, but also don't want to be signing to nobody)
Thanks in advance!
Hey I was going to go get my brakes done and want to make sure that i am not going to get ripped off. So for my FRONT rotors and pads its $280. Does that sound about right? 2000 Honda Civic LX.
Thanks a bunch guys!!
Is anyone leaving late Friday night (midnight?) or early Saturday morning, say before ten? I'm looking for a ride down to Portland to see the boyfriend and dog. It'd be really great! I'd give you five bucks for gas! Oh, and um anyone coming back Tuesday afternoon to Oly from Pdx? I need to get back to school too.
I know this gets old, but I'm trying to cast my net out as far as possible and I'd appreciate your help if you've got some to give.
My boyfriend and my friend and I are looking for a house to rent in the vicinity of Reed. We are willing to live as far north as SE Morrison, as far south as SE Bybee, as far west as the river (though we'd prefer to be east of SE 15th or so), and as far east as SE 60th or so. The closer to Reed the better, though.
We'd prefer a 3-bedroom house, although 2 or 4 would also work. We're looking for under $1500 (unless it's a 4-bedroom, in which case ~$1800 would be the limit). We have a rabbit, so pets should be allowed or at least considered (she's very well-behaved, always uses her litter box and doesn't chew, if that helps). We also have furniture. We'd like to move in by June 1st, although July 1st is also okay in a pinch.
If you own a house you're renting out, live in a house you'll be vacating soon, know someone with these qualifications, or are looking for roommates to fill 2 bedrooms and will need some living room/dining room furniture, please let me know.
ETA: Apparently this wasn't clear: we don't NEED furniture, we HAVE furniture. So if you were looking to fill 2 bedrooms, we also come with furniture for living room/dining room space.
Anyone have personal experience with any of the skydiving companies around? Any info or recommendations are appreciated, thanks!
811.290 Obstructing cross traffic; penalty. (1) A person commits the offense of obstructing cross traffic if the person is operating a vehicle and the person enters an intersection or a marked crosswalk when there is not sufficient space on the other side of the intersection or crosswalk to accommodate the vehicle without obstructing the passage of other vehicles or pedestrians.
(2) The offense described in this section applies whether or not a traffic control device indicates to proceed.
So I was driving downtown yesterday on my way to school and got pulled over by a motorcycle cop. I had a yellow light and was driving down Morrison, but even though I had a yellow light (and I thought the cars ahead of me were moving at a good clip) I had to stop in the crosswalk for all of thirty seconds.
I was going to protest the ticket, but since according to the law, the 'crosswalk' counts as part of the intersection and 'cross traffic' describes both cars and peds, it's not worth my time.
A word to all the drivers out there: be warned. This was rush hour, I drive a VW Golf and I still got nailed. Apparently the cops don't much care about the fucked-up state of downtown driving to let people off easilly.
So I drive down to McMinnville every weekend, leaving Fri/Sat and returning Sun/Mon depending on the weekend. Since gas is starting(ha) to get expensive, I have a bigass car and this is a regular thing, maybe one of your fine DPers would appreciate a carpooling thing from here to McMinnville/Salem on the weekends?
Just let me know.
If you were buying someone a massage gift certificate for their birthday where would you purchase it for?
That bologna strips paint off of cars?
If so... is it a heinous crime if you accidentally leave slices of bologna in the letters of 'douche' on your neighbor's car because you set them there while trying to figure out how you would pull your car into your driveway they so lovingly block?
I need a place to eat sometime the next week that meets the following criteria, in this order:
2) Creative/exotic/something the average Joe probably hasn't eaten before
3) Expensive (by which I mean $30+ a person)
4) Vegetarian option(s)
I'd explain these requirements, but it's kind of a long story.
My husband and I were going to take our daughter to PB & Ellie's Cafe for her birthday tomorrow. It is closed for good. Crap.
She will be turning 3 tomorrow and we want to take her some place fun that isn't Chuckie Cheese or that kind of place.
Are there any good, fun places to take a family and a few friends out for a birthday dinner? Bonus if they serve beer!
is anyone else going to take back the night tomorrow at psu?
...a continuation of interesting comments made by downtown Portland Safeway cashiers.
"God, I wish someone would just come and shoot up the place"
