The joys of grave never end. I just had to call the cops at my hotel(Jupiter) because a knife fight busted out and then they had the audacity to ask me about my homosexuality when I had to break it up. How's everyone else doing right now?
What would keep a person from getting their Stimulus Money on the date it shows on the site according to your last two SS digits?
Any places in town where I could buy a penny farthing? I'm looking more for a reproduction than a vintage original.
Here is a question I know a lot of you will just love to answer.
I'd like to go vegetarian/vegan. First, what is the difference between the two?
Also, what is the best way to transition in a healthy way without completely shocking my system? What should I do about making sure I still get all the proper nutrients and protein etc?
Books, websites, recipes, vegan restaurants in Portland (lolol)?
Hi, guys. I'm new here and I need some information. I've been accused of a greatly serious crime. Though I spoke with a lawyer yesterday, I used my $35 initial consultation fee and neglected to ask a couple of questions. There's no way I have the kind of money needed to retain a lawyer. Maybe you guys can be kind enough to help with a couple questions.
The lawyer I spoke with asked for a retainer of $10,000. What is a retainer, exactly? He said his fee on such matters is $200 an hour. Is that over and above the $10,000 retainership?
Also, what I've been accused of, I was accused of back in the early 70s, as a minor. It never went to trial and the police officers found no basis for the accusation. I had my records expunged when I was 18 or 21. How far back does the police files go, and are potentially felony criminal offences expunged?
I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.
SO as we may remember, I am moving to portland in ten days.
My longtime mental picture of Portland was crusty punks camping in parks, earthy gays, Ultra Liberal people just kind of co-existing . They would hold Barbeques and drink beer and have a good time. Basically somewhere that I (SUPER laid back gay guy) might want to live.
My more recent experiences via my longtime friends who have been living in Portland for a 6/7/8 years were on the same level, so no worries.
Now that I have been cruising Craigslist for a place to live and watching this community, and trying to ask questions about Portland ( some have been helpful (( Thank YOU!!!)) , but for the most part not so much) I am starting to worry that the PDX is quite uptight and full of angry lesbians and people that are so far left that they are back on the right. I am REALLY NOT trying to offend anyone, but I need to know that my carefree "live however you wanna live" attitude is going to accepted and that I may be able live a low stress life.
Although my decision to move is mine it is also a work move. and I don't hate lesbians I have A LOT of angry lesbian friends ( I am practically the league mascot of my local roller derby chapter ).
Anyone know when the new Döner kebab restaurant on SW 4th is opening? It's between the Rialto and Peterson's. No sign's up on the windows, but the front section looks almost ready for business.
Where in Portland would a person find the freshest, bestest, tastiest fish? (Not a restaurant but where to buy and take home for cookin'.)
I know we have loads of great butcher's and deli's in town but what about the fish mongers?
I do not think this has been posted here yet, but Taqueria Nueve on NE 28th, just north of Burnside is closed. A small, hand-written sign in the window reads, "Nov. 28th, 2000 - May 10th, 2008 Thanks for all your support over the years. Taqueria 9 Staff.
*sniff* We LOVED this place, my family and I. It is a shame to see it go.
i know you can buy it, but i was wondering if you could dyeit and then have it framed? or do art stores already sell colored canvas?
anyone know of a local & reputable celtic-type shop that sells claddagh rings? looking for personal recommendations here...
I'm woefully uneducated about butcher shops here in Portland, and the might Google has failed me in finding information, so I come to you.
I need about two pints of pigs blood for a photoshoot I'm doing on the 24th. I need to know locations of butcher shops (or anywhere else that sells animal blood), and pricing, if you know it. If not, just locations that I can call or visit.
I'm in SE, about five minutes from downtown, so I can pretty much travel anywhere as long as it doesn't mean an hour long bus ride or anything.
Does anyone know if there's anyplace around that sells Mt St Helens gifts anymore? Not just magnets and keychains, but ash from the blow and things made from the ash. Somewhere that's not 1 1/2 hours away? Google fails me.
Great Gatherings on 35th and Belmont in Southeast is going out of business so everything is pretty cheap. I thought some people would like to know.
I just happened to be on FOX when along comes the scrolly thing down on the bottom of the screen with this gem:
There is some sort of Police Activity at NE 82nd and Multnomah in Portland. There aren't a lot of details, but we do know that Portland's SERT team is involved. The scene is less than a mile from a SERT callout last night. We'll continue to follow the developments, and bring you the details, first on Fox News.
Somewhere, out there, in the night...shit is goin down!!!
Where are some hip places to go on a Wednesday night? I'd prefer to stay away from pretension if I can. I want a place with some good dancing music. Good prices on drinks would be nice, but not entirely necessary 'cause I might not be drinking. Please do not recommend establishments that charge an entrance(cover) fee. That shit is ridiculous.
OMG SPRING!!!!!!! In NW at the base of the hills.
