Hey guys, due to my lack of job, I'm returning to Tacoma. I bought myself a trimet all zone adult bus pass for the month but I'm going home now. Anyone want it for $50 O.B.O. I'm only going to be in the area till Sunday afternoon so please let me know!
My car is running in pretty good shape, but it is definitely in need of a tune up and I have the time and means to get it checked out so I'm asking for some mechanic recommendations.
I live in Northeast/North Portland so I would prefer somewhere in that area, but I'm willing to take it elsewhere if someone has a fantastic review of a mechanic ;)
I am looking for something affordable, and like I said, there isn't anything particularly wrong with the car as far as I know, I just want to go ahead and get it tuned up. It has a lot of miles on it so I would like to make sure everything is as it should be, get an oil change, etc. I have a 1997 Toyota Tercel if that matters to what mechanic I would take it to.
So with that said...any suggestions?
I wake up with a hankering for pancakes. I open the fridge and find only a swallow of milk left in the container. It's time to improvise, adapt and overcome.
I take a cup of flour, 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, 3 tablespoons of sugar and mix together. Separately, bring together all your wet ingredients - 3/4 cup of water, 2 1/2 tablespoons of margarine (melted). Combine your wet and dry ingredients until well blended.
Cook in a well oiled pan about 4 minutes per side. That's it! Cheap and delicious.
Specifically, trying to find Elizabeth Scheiman, who used to cut at Salon in Vogue. If anyone knows where she practices now, hot tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
There is an amazing amount of books, vinyl and CDs still left. On until 6pm. It's a benefit for the family of KBOO member/DJ, Richard Francis, who passed away in early September. Amazing rare electronic/experimental vinyl, lots of books, lots of gay/lesbian literature. I just dropped $125 there. It's in the studios. Go into the lobby and they'll point the way.

Between Burnside and Sandy Blvd.
Anyone headed northwards to Seattle for Turkey Day? Amtrak is all kinds of expensive for that time period. All the usual stuff about ass, gas or cash.
edit: lol typo gas "ass"
Where can we get some delicious key lime pie tonight in Portland?
I'm aware of Papa Hayden's but other suggestions would be good!
best margarita and/or hot toddy on the east side?
Shall we get this party started?
this just in, so don't hate me.
fruition is playing at the laurelthirst tonight. approx. 10pm. see you there, or not.
Sorry if this has been asked recently... where do you guys get your kid's hair cut? i've done it myself the first several times (with only a few mistakes) but now my toddler is ready for something serious. Any places you'd recommend in the Beaverton/Hillsboro/West where ever area? My own stylist says she does kid's hair but i'm thinking maybe a place geared towards little children might be better. Oh, and any places to avoid??
