Wineries and stuff

Planning to head down 99W this weekend to the Newberg/Dundee/McMinnville area. Any of you hit the jackpot with an awesome tasting room experience at a particular winery in that area?

Any other [awesome-low key-pretty-naturey] activities or sites we should not miss?

Thanks :)


Hey y'all... so I have a problem. I have a lil cat, he's almost 2, but still is pretty small. He is really tempermental and pees/poops around the house if he's upset. Well, thats what it seems like anyway.

A big reason fro thinking its when he is upset is because he does it more right after moving and also when I had a housewarming party, with all the people there, he just popped a squat on the bathroom rug.  

I make sure that the cat box is always clean. I seriously clean it like every day, if not every other day. I'm getting really tired of having to throw away clothes because I can't get the smell of cat pee out of them. 

So my question is this: Do any of you guys have any advice? Have you had a kitty that did the same thing and you found a solution? I have gotten to the p oint taht I close my bedroom door when I'm not in there and make sure tehre is NOTHING in so far as clothes on the floor. It seems to have helped a little bit, but this morning I had to chase him out of my room while I was getting ready cuz he looked ready to sabotage clean laundry. 

Thanks guys!

is the Hotel Mandragora Museum on 11th and Jefferson? I pass it on my way home from work, and it refuses to explain itself. The Internet also refuses to explain it to me, except through some kind of cryptic Blair Witch-esque video.

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Also, on another note. This is probably just some bougie mansion, but there's this big red house on the corner of SW 21st and Salmon, and I've always wondered if this is some kind of like secret club or something. Occasionally there's an intimidating doorman out in front of it. Anyone know about this place, or is it just a big mansion?

CL rideshare fail . . . DP rideshare success?

Is anyone that reads this community heading southbound from a place nearby or passing through Portland, OR and going through Weed/Mt. Shasta, CA?

If so, are you doing this on Saturday, July 31st?

If so, do you have room for a likely stranger that is willing to share fuel costs and/or driving responsibilities?

I'm just trying to get to my cousin's wedding.
