We could use a fantastic mechanic near our house. Like, west-side/downtown/beavertron area. Our Hyundai needs a timing belt, and that just seems like the sort of thing you don't want to DIY.
So, who's your fantastic mechanic??? Why are they so fantastic???
A good friend of mine just relocated to PDX and is looking for pretty much anything in the restaurant industry - serving, bussing, even dishwashing. Does anyone happen to know of any places that are hiring for that sort of thing right now? He's already checking CL and stuff but I thought I would see if anyone here has some good leads.
Question for ya'll....
I've been living in Portland for a few months and I'm going back home to Canada for a visit soon. I want to bring some small presents back for my friends there, and I'm looking for some ideas. I do have some criteria...
1) must be small and easy to transport by plane
2) must be legal to take across the border
3) not too expensive...I have a lot of friends there and I'd rather spend less than $5 each if I can.
4) something that people would actually want and appreciate...not just cheap tourist junk ;)
So, what is quintessential Portland to you guys that fits those specifications....any ideas?
Where can I find a blue spruce?
Just for fun, what is your favourite nursery and why?
So heres the deal...
A while ago someone posted craving local burlesque..clearly, theres not a whole heck of a lot to be found in town. Ive recently moved down from Seattle and was performing three to four times a week there...
..the question is, how well do you think regular shows would do here? Are there any particular venues anyone would like to see a pretty lady or two cleverly disrobe?
Ive already checked out dantes, the crown room and the rose city sirens....I'm just wondering if theres something Ive missed??
Obviously theres a bigger contender here than there is in WA, what with the differences in laws involving strip clubs and such, but I think theres a niche for a bawdy lady like myself...Ive just got to find it!
Also, the trips to seattle are killing my bank account, so theres an ulterior motive here ;)
Opinions? Suggestions? Snarks? c'mon, you know you've got some...
I was wondering if anyone had any good recommendations for apartments. I work near Lloyd Center so something near public transportation would be nice. Nothing too expensive, takes pets (at least cats). Thanks!
Can anyone recommend a motel or hotel that's close-in SW and affordable?
I've done the normal online searches but I'd like some Portlanders' experiences. Thanks!
