Portland!!

Most of you know I'm going to Portland in... holy shit... a week and two days.

Tell me: what must I absolutely see or do in Portland? I won't have a ton of time as most of the time will be taken up with ROCK CAMP (_|oo|) but I don't know thing one about Portland except that it's supposed to have lots of hippies, cool music, and my friend from college lives there.

Non Sequitur: I just bit my tongue so hard I drew blood. Not on purpose. OW.

Ash is going to be at Rock Camp! Aieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! She is SO shy, you will have to make her talk lots. She's a guitar god/dess and so sweet it makes your teeth hurt. She taught at Girl's Rock Camp and I think this is like her 3rd time at Rock Camp.



AND I WILL BE COMING TO VISIT!!!

Hi! maigrey pointed me your way.

Things to see:
Powell's bookstore.
Mt. Hood (about an hour's drive)
Pacific Ocean (Seaside/Cannon beach is about an hour's drive)
Zoo, Rose Garden, and Japanese Garden (all in Washington Park off the MAX line)
23rd street on the west side of downtown, which is full of fun shops and places to eat.
Ditto for Hawthorne on the east side of downtown.
Saturday Market (Sat and Sun) at Skidmore Fountain. Great crafts and hand-made stuff to be found there.
Multnomah Falls (I-84 East, about an hour away)

Thank you so much for dropping by with suggestions! I will likely have to pick one or two of these only, yikes.

There are actually very few hippies around here anymore. They all turned into hipsters who ride bikes.

Rock Camp is five minutes from my house and the best bar in town. Where are you staying?

I am staying with a friend... according to mapquest, it's near "Multnomah". If I have this right, which is probably not true.

Check with raininva - she lived there until I drew her to the Right Coast with my online wiles.

AHHHH! :)

I am moving back there June 3rd.

Definitely hit up Powells, Council Crest (best views of the city), Saturday Market, Ash Street Saloon (sit out in the courtyard), also hit up Portland City Grill, in the US Bancorp Building--KICK ASS views of the city and if you hit happy hour or late night happy hour, they have cheap, GOOD food, also Tiny's Coffeehouse on the Eastside, the Hawthorne district, Baghdad Theater and DEFINITELY the Laurelhurst.

Thanks for the tips!!! I will only have like, Sunday afternoon and all of Monday to really take in the area. That's not much time! I wish I had thought to take more time off, but I didn't want to overstay my welcome with my friend.
