Racer 5 IPA

Does anyone know where to find Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA? I've seen it at Vino Vixens occasionally, but was hoping for a more reliable source. My fiancée loves the stuff. TIA.

caterin'

Any of you DPers cater?

My lady and I are having a smallish gathering soon and want to kick up the fancy a little by having someone else prepare the hors d'oeuvres and sweets. We don't need anyone to dress up and walk around serving stuff on little trays, just the food.

Alternatively, if you've had good experience with a caterer or restaurant who offers this kind of service, your suggestions are also appreciated. My only experience with this kind of thing is picking up a veggie tray at Safeway.

Spanks!

Scary thought...

While driving in with my fiance to work this morning, I had a terrifying thought:

What if McCain actually wins?

What do you think will happen at all the election day parties? Riots? Mass suicide? My fiance's reply was: We'll secede from the Union.

What do you think DP? What if the old McMaverick/Moose* actually pull it off?

bicycles

Hi DPers, I am a short woman, 5'0", wondering where I can find a bicycle that will fit me! I have been riding a mountain bike where the handlebars are too far and it's causing me much shoulder pain. (This is okay for a couple of miles but I've been going almost 20 miles on this thing..)

I do not have a ton of money to spend, less than $200 right now.

Anyone have a good idea of where to start? Any stores with a good selection of women's bikes? Used especially. Or anyone know anyone selling one?

Thanks so much guys.

Bean bags

Does anyone know of a place in PDX that sells Fuf or Jaxx bean bag chairs? Or any of the nice bean bag chairs that are filled with shredded foam instead of pellets?

It's Halloween!

Hey DP,

I'm looking for something to do tonight in the NW / Downtown area. 

Preferably 21+, no smoking, and no (or small) cover charge.

I know, I know, I should have figured something out ages ago, but I didn't, and I want to have some fun tonight.  I might even get all wild and crazy and stay up later than 11pm! 

Suggestions?

trick or treaters

When do you usually get trick or treaters?

Also, do any of you apartment dwellers get any? I live in one of those huge complexes and Im hoping some of the neighbor kids might come by. I am at home with my newborn baby and want to celebrate one of my favorite holidays!

Happy Halloween DP!

Hair stylist, post 33847287

So, I know the hair question gets asked a million times here but this one is pretty specific.
.
I have crazy, thick, wavy, coarse, outta control hair that needs to be razor-cut. So far, I have been unable to find a stylist who can achieve this and my hair looks like shit every time I (pay to!) get it cut. I am tired of paying for shitty haircuts that are not what I want. I would really prefer a Paul Mitchell stylist (I had good luck with one back home who rocked the razor) BUT if someone is awesome, I don't care too much if they're Paul Mitchell or not.

HELP ME, DPers! I am tired of wearing my hair in a ponytail EVERY day! It is seriously giving me headaches. HELP!
