Great pet friendly option in Portland when the Hotel Monaco rates are high. This is in an old building with charm and class. Walking distance to downtown attractions.

With a location on Burnside smack dab in the center of the city right across the street from Powell's Books this place gets in the best of the best of Portland's second-hand items! Great selection! And they seemed to be getting in new stuff all the time! I got some great shoes, which is not easy to do second hand. ...Popular withTrendstersBudgetLocal

The First Regiment Armory Annex, commonly known as the Portland Armory, was built in 1891 by Multnomah County to house the Oregon National Guard. While soldiers mustered at the Armory in 1898 for the Spanish American War, no urban unrest has ever been quelled here. In 1968, after years as an event space, it became a beer warehouse, owned by ...

Another great Portland happy hour to check out! This place is right at a MAX stop for the green and yellow lines in the Chinatown area. They had a rather unique happy hour menu with options like duck wings and cauliflower tempura both of which I would recommend!Popular withTrendstersLocalFoodies

I dined in the bar portion later in the evening after the restaurant had closed. They had a simple menu with some yummy choices. I had the manicotti which was quite nice and served in a baking dish with plenty of sauce and cheese. The bartender who waited on us was incredibly nice. They serve you good bread with oil ...Popular withTrendstersBudgetLocal

I was looking for Hand Eye Supply in the Chinatown area, when I happened upon Orox Leather. Martin Martinez and his crew were super friendly when I stopped in to look around at their old school leather offerings. This is yet another high quality Portland design place that the Rose City excels so well. I ended up with a nice ...Popular withFamiliesLocalTrendsters

My ex-wife was kind enough to let Gayle and I use her car last Sunday. With my snarly teenage son in tow, proceeded to take a nice driving tour that included the McMenamins Edgefield, Vista House, and Multnomah Falls. Then it was on to the Raccoon Lodge for dinner and a Family meeting. Coming back to our Hotel (The Nines) ...

The Real Mother Goose has 3 Portland-area locations (including PDX) and specializes in handcrafted functional and decorative art: jewelry, glass, wood and other crafts. Gayle and I came into the main Downtown Gallery last Saturday to look around. It's a large space and about a full city block long. And it's full of an impressive array of arts and crafts ...

Half Pint is a cool little "Kicker" Store that features used western-style boots and accessories. They have a very nice and well organized selection, over a wide variety of sizes, with reasonable prices, and in a nice laid back atmosphere.Popular withFamiliesBudgetLocal

PDXchange is another Portland correct sort of gift store, but without the edge. Maybe that's because it's located in a new building and perhaps the selection and displays are little bit too perfect. And it's a really cool fair trade store nonetheless. I found some neat stuff that would make perfect gifts.Popular withFamiliesBudgetLocal

At the Convention I attended, I took an investigated photography class and learned a few things I didn't previously know about cameras. The first is that point-and-shoot generated photos will often not meet legal scrutiny. The second is that in certain dirty site situations (e.g., arson, drug labs, etc.), film cameras are still the best. So after class, I headed ...

I really appreciate what The Nines (including Urban Farmer and Departure) has done with their portion of the old Meier and Frank Department Store Building. It's a handsome space and the compromises to the overall architecture appears to have been minimal. Macy's has also payed homage via a plaque at the entrance to the store. However in my opinion, what ...

iPad2 vs. iPhone 4S? That was my question yesterday as my Son and I wandered into this Verizon Wireless after an early Dinner. I was immediately helped and Gayle's Verizon account information was accessed quickly. The person helping me was very nice and offered some reasonable suggestions if I were to buy an iPhone 4S and put it on my ...

Tug Boat Brewing Co. has a homey, intimate feel and is a good place for drinks and deep, serious conversations. They also have good food options on their menu. Last time I was here I ordered the nachos and the serving was huge! Plus, it's right next door to Santeria.Popular withNightlife

This is the lot that I usually end up when taking the Kid for Lunch or Dinner at Blue Plate. It's easy to get in and out, and the location is convenient enough, as we've walked on to other places after our meal was over. We also usually end up on the upper levels (even after hours) as we don't ...

A condensed version of Target, with groceries and limited selection of necessities. A little bit of everything here. It is three stories, with the actual store on floors 2 and 3. Stop here for bargain prices or to visit the in-store Starbucks.Popular withBudgetFamiliesStudents

But where are the Roses? I was southbound on the #72 bus, after transferring from the Max Red Line at the NE 82nd Ave Station. And when I saw the sign for the "Hung Far Low" Chinese restaurant, it was time to get off at Division and transfer to the #4 bus. After this experience, I take it all back ...
