I'm wanting to do some hiking around Mt. Hood in the next few days, and was wondering if any of y'all had any experience and could recommend some trails.
Ideal would be a 4-5 mile loop, or a couple of smaller trails that are fairly close to each other. I'm looking to be hiking for no more than 4-5 hours or so (I'm fairly slow). My skill level is intermediate, I suppose. I'd rather not be crossing any streams that would require total submersion of my feet. Something interesting to see (views/waterfalls/whathaveyou) appreciated.
I do plan on checking out a visitor's center, and have been googling, just wanted some personal suggestions.
Help me, DPers.
I celebrated my new job a little too much last night and am now enjoying a good old-fashioned irresponsible early 20s hangover, and there's no place quite like your office to experience that. I'm about to run out on an errand for my boss and am looking for something - anything - to help me make it to 5:00.
What are your tried and true hangover cures?
Please join us tonight at the Fez Ballroom to help raise some last minute money before Team Viva Glam walks in the upcoming Aids Walk!
Drag, drinks, dancing and a really cool raffle featuring prizes from local business and MAC Cosmetics.
Doors are at 7, so you can't even use the "I have to work in the morning" excuse, with a $5 donation to CAP. The Fez is 21 and over. See you there!
Cops are pulling over cyclists today at the stop sign at Broadway and Williams. Make sure you come to a complete stop! That motorcycle cop is stealthy...
Ok. Its official. Nobody is going to find the glasses I lost on Monday.
SO--I have exactly $100 fronted to me by my boss to get new glasses so I can stop squinting at the screen of my computer at work.
Looking for suggestions for good and affordable (!!!) places to go. Also, how does it work with the prescription--I have one with my insurance provider, can they fax it to the place I choose to get glasses at? Or do I get a new prescription instead? I'm fairly new to the whole glasses-wearing thing.
I'm on 17th and Sandy (working at Delivered Dish) so somewhere in this area or in downtown or anywhere NE would be terrific.
Thanks in advance.
Well, I guess fall is officially here for me, because I am one sick little girl. Sore throat, sniffles, headache, lethargy, ya'know. Everything else is annoying/uncomfortable, but my throat is really bothering me. It's super swollen and tender, hurts to swallow. I've been drinking emergen-c and peppermint tea (even if the tea doesn't actually do anything, it makes my throat feel momentarily better), and I'm trying to convince myself to go to the store for throat losenges. I have big plans to remain curled up under my electric blanket, watch tv on Hulu, read comic books, and convince my cat to cuddle with me.
Beyond that, what easy home methods have yall found to help ease the discomfort of a sore throat?
I'm looking for a neurologist in the downtown area. Recommendations?
I only ask because there's like 200 listed and I'd hate to end up with a lame one.
Turns out if you want a sleep study at OHSU you need a recommendation from a doctor, which is a tricky thing to do if you don't have a doctor...
I have been wearing a hoodie and a keffiyeh scarf all day so far and I am still cold. Our office is 70 degrees... What gives? Am I going through the change so soon? Is manopause right around the corner?
Three friends and I are on a road trip from nyc and have landed in portland for the next two weeks. We are all newly graduated from college and looking for some of the local hip, fun, things-to-do. Can you give us suggestions? If it matters, we're staying in Irvington and have a car and bikes.
Does anyone here sell Mary Kay products? Or know someone who does? My vanity depends on you.
I just need to buy one thing. Don't need a consultation or a makeover, etc. I got hooked on one of their items and the girl I knew that sold it moved to La Grande and I can't find her email address. :/
I lost a ring today and I have no spares anymore. I don't want to lose my beautiful amber plugs! I've been wearing them for almost 6 years. Where can I get some rings, preferably SW/Downtown, or lacking that, preferably not a Hot Topic?
Jeff Halper, anthropology professor and 2006 Nobel Peace Prize candidate, is the executive director of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, a grassroots activist NGO in Jerusalem resisting the Israeli occupation on the ground and one of the first Israeli peace groups to work inside the Occupied Palestinian Territories. As he explains, “we are against the Israeli policy of occupation and displacement. If you create an apartheid situation, if you lock another people into prison, in the end, you cannot develop a healthy, normal, and prosperous society. The Occupation, conflict, terrorism, and settlements all affect the Israeli society and economy. As long as the Occupation continues, Israel itself cannot be free.”
Come for his lecture and then participate in the question and answer discussion afterwards. It'll be at Reed College (3203 SE Woodstock Blvd), in Vollum Lecture Hall at 7 PM (Sunday, October 12th). This event is open to the entire community and we would love to have a diverse crowd.
Alright DP --
I need a big thing of coffee for an office function in the morning on 7th and Alberta. Does anyone know any coffee shop that offers a big container of coffee to go -- besides starbucks -- that is somewhere oh the East, preferably NE, side of town?
My co-workers and I thank you.
Hello fellow Portlanders!

--Also, anyone recommend any cheap shows (music) to go tomorrow or saturday?
Thanks for the help!
So this morning, my apartment building had a big stack of voter's pamphlets in the main hallway. They were all Volume 1, which is just the ballot measures. I had a quick read through, and some of the issues are becoming clear to me.
The only one I can say I am unconditionally for so far is moving the rules of voting for school boards in line with voting for everything else.
Anyone had a chance to read the thrilling prose so far?
i lost my circuit city credit card and driver's license. what's the worst that can happen?
