Before I turn to craigslist, looking for a black book or dvd case.
And tickets to Sunday's Blazer's game!
I need to kill a couple hours in downtown with my 6 year old this afternoon. Any ideas on where I can take her that's fun for kids her age?
Edited to add: Thanks all for the suggestions. I guess I should have been more specific, that's what I get for posting without coffee.
This is an ongoing thing for us every Wednesday. With the weather, we're looking for more indoor things. The kid loves the waterfront, and Finnegans, but we've already worn those out.
We'll probably do either the library or the museum (didn't know they had a kid area) for today.
Any other ideas? I'm all eyes/ears.
Two lucky DPers might find out tonight!
The wife and I have tix to tonight's show at Portland Center Stage, and she's not feeling up to it, so I've got two tickets to offload. It's at 7:30p, and, well, the tix cost us something like $30 dollars and it'd be great to get something for them, but I'd rather get nothing than let them go to waste, so I'm taking the first offer rather than the best offer.
Only caveat: I'm in the SE, near Reed College and I don't want to travel too far to give them away, so you have to be willing to come somewhat near to my neighborhood, like close enough that I could walk my dog there. Maybe to the Gladstone Cafe/Pizzeria at SE Gladstone west of 39.
[EDIT: In case my title is too subtle, the play is "The Importance of Being Earnest"]
Im looking for the following games
Mario (any sports) for Game cube
Streetfighter (for super NES or ps2)
Capcom vs Marvel
OH Also if anyone has FLCL (Furi Kuri / Fooly Cooly) Im looking for taht too.
i am pretty sure that while i was riding in the car with a friend downtown a couple of weeks ago i saw what appeared to be... an elevator? going down into the sidewalk. neither of us got a good enough took at it to know if that's actually what we saw.
so i'm wondering if i had some kind of massive hallucination (and if so, why it couldn't have been naked dancing girls instead of weird elevators) or if this kind of thing actually exists.
if it DOES exist, what in the heck is it for? what's under the sidewalks? can anyone get on these elevators? and HOW!
and before anyone asks, i have no idea which streets we were on.
i'm imagining portland laced underneath with some crazy tunnel system accessed by secret passwords, foot taps in morse code and other fantastical stuff. this is making my secret steampunk self all aquiver with the possibilities.
March 1st is when the new SCHIP tobacco taxes take effect:
RYO tobacco will increase $25 - $35 per pound. Papers and tubes will increase between twenty and thirty cents per package.
Pipe tobacco users get to add an extra $3 or so per pound.
Small cigars will also be more expensive too....around $6 or so more than what you pay now.
Cigarettes are going to go up too - at least another buck a pack.
So, smokers, do you plan on quitting on April 1st? Or are you going to start hording?
is anyone else thinking about going to ground kontrol's free play night tonight or doing something that will make my brain stop melting
I am looking for a pagan/occult friendly and relatively low cost therapist in the portland area. [I am doing shamanic work that I want to do along with therapy & I do not want to tiptoe around or spend time I pay for needing to explain that, i also do not want an untrained kook].
