Where would you suggest I find the BEST BAGELs in Portland?
backstory: co-worker brought in pretty good bagels a few weeks ago, I didn't ask where they are from I'm new to the area, so I was lookin' for a little help. gotta plan ahead for a Sun morn bagel run :)
Epic, intense and dramatic season-ending Bar League Softball game going down on SE 55th and Division (across from Dairy Queen) TODAY at 3:00 pm.
CHICO'S BAIL BONDS (Triple Nickel) v. HANIGAN'S (The Vern)
If Chico's (3-8) win this one they get the wild card and advance to round one of the playoffs against the dreaded Portland Mercury (10-1) next week! The Vern (2-9) have no chance at the playoffs but are bound and determined to make Chico's look like fools!
Bring your own beer for this one (yes, we have permits).
There will be nudity, fireworks, bad language, loud music, and jaw-dropping softball.
If you're in the neighborhood, do grab a sixer and come on down.

Hello you damn Portlanders --
I just got out of a 6 year relationship (in Orlando, FL) with a guy who always laughed at my dreams of moving to Portland. I have no lease and am living month-to-month in a friend's condo while I get my life untangled from said guy's, and decide where I'm going to go. I want to just up and make the move to Portland ASAP, but as I browse housing I have NO idea what area is what. I want to live in an area teeming with public transportation. I'm also a dog groomer and trainer so areas suited towards those businesses so I can, you know, get a job, would be awesome. Also, just any advice of moving alone to Portland unawares is appreciated.
Also, if you know of anyone offering their services as a hitman? Haha, ha. haha. :(
Yesterday, I watched a bicyclist on a phone almost get smeared by three cars that he suddenly cut off. He also didn't use hand signals or bother to look behind him as he made a left turn from a right-hand lane.
While I was podulating downtown, I got to see a fellow ambler attempt to step out in front of traffic. I guess he was too busy talking on the phone to notice the big Indian hand saying "No".
Later on, some phone-using doofus in a blue truck stopped for a green light. He was successfully able to ignore the poor lady honking at him from behind, and 40 seconds later, when the light got greener, he finally lurched his truck forward.
It's official, the Dream Team is back. Anyone else watching the US run circles around China right now? It's like the Harlem Globetrotters only better. Wade, Bryant and James are running circles around everyone.
Just got a new printer and before I freecycle, I wanted to offer this used HP 5P printer to all the good peeps here!
Printer is 12 years old, works fine though it might need a cleaning. Has a cartridge inside with ink.
Comes with manual and all cables. No deliveries, you come and pick up. I live near Mall 205.
If interested, contact me at: nitehawk13 at gmail.com
If I don't get any replies by this evening, it goes on freecycle.
my friend needs a pair of crutches, but we are entirely unsure of where to find some on a sunday afternoon. does anyone 1) have a pair that they are willing to lend or 2) know of a place to find/borrow inexpensive/free crutches? thanks!
edit: crutches procured. thank you!
I was in a car accident on my way back from Seattle this morning. I am okay, just some minor bruising / sore muscles and no food in my house ... does anyone know of a place that delivers Indian food over in the NE? I am on 33rd off of Alberta. Thank you so much, ya'll.
So I need to know if I have a license today, and the DMV is closed.
I got a traffic ticket, which I couldnt afford to pay, and my license was suspended from not paying it. My tax return indicated that I paid a fine out of it to Oregon, and Im pretty sure thats the only fine I owed Oregon. Im wondering if my license was reinstated, or if I have to do anything else.
Anyone have any experience with this?
So quick question:
I want to go to late night unreleased music series featuring Tom Waits on friday, but their website says no one under 21 is permitted after 7pm.
I turn 21 next month, do they seriously card people? Or could I probably get in? I'm not going to try and buy beer or anything I just really want to see the show.
My friends just rolled into town without a penny to their names, and they're staying with me until they find jobs and get an apartment. Needless to say, I'd like them to be employed pretty quick. They need entry-level work doing whatever. I'm guessing call centers are the trick, but I haven't been looking for this kind of work in years.
I live in inner SE, so getting downtown is easy for them. Getting to Beaverton or somewhere is tough, because they have no bus fare. The other problem is they have no phone, so it's hard for employers to call them back.
Where should I send them to look for work first thing Monday morning?
Snark away- it will all be deflected towards them anyway. But tell me something useful too, please.
Have you ever had a sleep study/polysomnogram?
Tell me about it.
ETA: I don't need to know what happens at/during a sleep study. I want to know about your personal experience. I'd also be interested to hear about how you would rate your quality of care, the education you received from your physician and your technician/technologist and where you had the testing done.
Where's a good place to get (acoustic) guitar lessons? SE or Downtown would be best.
Any places you know to look at the Portland city lights?
So sometime last week I was totally drunk at the barley mill pub and lost my wallet including the contents of my Social security card, my ID, medical cards and so on. I thought it was gone forever and I was gonna have to to wait through the long process of ordering another birth certificate from LA waiting for that then finally a month down the road get another Id and SSN hoping someone hadnt stolen my identity.
Some really great awesome person out there took my wallet, stole the cash.. (finders fee its ok) and shipped it to my moms place in CA from the addy on the ID Whoever you are thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you
May good Karma find you :)
