Hi there, Damnportlanders.
I'm looking to purchase a couple of things, and am not sure where to find them. I figure you may be more help with the first than the second, but it's always good to ask...
#1) Wonder Woman action figure. Bonus points if she's posable. I need it as a (gag) gift.
#2) I need a veil. Not like a bellydancing veil or a goth party veil, but like a "here comes the bride" sort of veil. I need one that's shoulder length. And I need it before Friday. For what it's worth, I am looking for a single layer circle veil, that's short.
Thanks in advance!
Lol I know the title will have nothing to do with the post...well yea actually.
I am finished with a few tracks of music and I desperately need Mastering done because when I tried one of them out at the bar for karaoke it was severely drowned by bass. I need a Master's touch to my music and I am actually happy to be at that step. Anyone have info or anyone do Mastering? Thanks!
Looking for an affordable, non sketchy, storage unit in the NE area (St Johns, Lombard, Etc). Does such a thing exist?
Hello folks. I am now in the process of decorating my 'new' apartment and I want to get some movie posters. Do any of you know of stores in town that would sell them? Preferably actual theater one sheets (what you see when you go to a major movie theater) as opposed to either smaller posters or dvd / vhs release posters.
Thanks in advance folks.
Does anyone out there have Old Wives Tales' gazpacho recipe.....or something close?
Anyone know how much an hour of metered parking is downtown? I'm meeting a friend for lunch and I'm sure it's got to be cheaper than the $5 for an hour in the garage. Since she's at work, it won't be more than an hour, so... :) How much change do I need, these days? Oh, and do meters take pennies?
My company is looking to book a place for the annual holiday party before it's too late. In an effort to avoid the stereotypycal "sit in a hotel ballroom around a table with coworkers you normally don't care to socialize with eating mediocre buffet food" ...
We'd like to find an Art Gallery in the Downtown/Pearl/Northwest area that we could rent for an evening which would accommodate approximately 130 people, a full bar, jazz combo, and a whole bunch of people walking around serving appetizers.
First: if I never hear the word "staycation" again, it will be too soon.
Second: I have recently discovered that I have a sister and brother and neices and nephews. I would like to go camping with them this summer. They would also enjoy that, except that all of their stuff got destroyed in a house fire NYE 2007. I am compiling new camping bits for them on the cheap. Do you have stuff you'd like to get rid of for free or nominally priced? Mostly I need a big-ass tent, and cooking/eating gear, I think.
ps: Thank you Oregon for having LOADS of relatively inexpensive campgrounds. Washington, you suck. How can there not be tons of little tent-friendly campgrounds on the road to Rainier?? No, RV Resorts don't count.
Does anyone know a girl named Crystal (I'm pretty sure) who currently or perhaps used to work at the Goodwill on Grand? Shortish hair and several tattoos, possibly full sleeves? I have a pair of boots I want to give to her. It's a bit of a random back story so just go with it....
I stopped by the store today and asked another employee if Crystal was around- she didn't recognize the name. So if you know her, could you please pass on the message?
thanx gang :)
Looks like someone knows who I'm talking about, thanks for the responses folks.
Hey everyone :) I'm looking for meatless cooking classes (vegan or vegetarian) in the Portland area, preferably easy to get to by bus. I just happen to be the kind of person who learns really well by watching someone, and gets really frustrated with cookbooks. My mum's trying to help me over the phone, but it's surprisingly difficult to cook while on the cell phone with my mum at the same time. Besides, while she's been vegetarian in the past, she's not now, and keeps telling me to put cheese in things, which I for sure should not be eating (I'll save you all the miserable details).
In Ashland, the local co-op gave cooking classes on a variety of topics, and they were open to anyone for a fee. I've been looking through the co-op websites up here, and while I've found some interesting things, I'm not sure I want to join a co-op just for $5 karate or whatever, and they seem to be short on 1-shot cooking classes. I hate to be like "somewhere else they did this, so why not here?" but, well, that's what I'm wondering. I did find a guy who gives classes by appointment, $20/person, but that's not what I'm looking for at all. I'm very specifically looking for 1-shot, 1-subject, 1-night cooking classes.
I got some really good tips and links from some of you just recently, and I've been slowly going through those, but since I'm transitioning from a meat and dairy diet, I need to be... retrained, I guess. If you know of anywhere that has these types of cooking classes, let me know :) And thanks for the previous tips, they're helping out a lot!
Recommendations for a good bar to watch Giants (baseball) games at?
Thank you, Portland, for welcoming with opening arms.
Thanks to those who have mostly furnished my house for under $20, to all the Concordia New Seasons employees who strike up a conversation with me every time I've been in there, to the people who actually stop for me at the crosswalks, to those who have pointed me in the direction of fun, free activities, to my amazing neighbors who've reached out repeatedly, to the guy who danced with me for at least an hour at the Fez (and made my roommate dance!), and to the random strangers who've complemented my hair or my shirt.
I can't believe it took me this long to get to this city, but I'm stoked that it finally happened.
After reading this post: http://www.ruethedayblog.com/2008/07/around-the-world-in-pizza-time/ I have been craving some yummy pizzas.
So, where can I find the best:
-sushi pizza with eel
-Swedish pizza (bananas, ham, and curry)
I might just have to break out the dough and make some myself.
My best friend is coming down Wednesday to visit for a couple days. As a result, I am looking for the absolute best chocolate covered strawberries in Portland. I'm in SE Portland, but i'll travel tomorrow to get them, if they're THE BEST.
So, DamnPortlanders (every time someone posts DP, i think something other than DamnPortlanders....), where can I get THE BEST Chocolate Covered Strawberries?
I've been looking for housing with a couple of friends, and we found a cute house on 70th and Harold and haven't signed a lease yet, but, um, isn't that a bad part of town? One of my housemates has to walk home after dark fairly often, so I'm really worried about it. What can you all tell me about that area of town? Should we take the house?
In a desperate attempt to earn money, I agreed to house/dog-sit for some friends, after not hearing back from the handful of jobs I applied for. Well of course, after committing myself to the house, I got a call for an interview. I'm not jumping the gun and assuming I have the job, but it's good to be prepared.
Preface concluded, here's my dilemma: I am without car and rely on my bike/Tri-Met. The house is sortof a ways into NE Portland, and my potential job is in downtown Beaverton. On the days when I can't strike up a deal with my boyfriend, I'm stuck with a heinous transit. - - > Is anyone living in NE and working in Beaverton? If so, would you be willing to arrange a carpooling situation? It'd only be for a few days somewhere between the 2nd and the 11th of August. I'd of course provide my share of gas money, as it's liquid gold at this point.
If not - the zombie you see on the street will be me.
Suggestions on where to get a decent breakfast somewhat quickly (as in like an hour tops) in the SW area. Somewhere between Beaverton-Hillsdale/Capital Highway and PSU.
just heard by NE 11th and Ainsworth. Holy shit.
