Is there anyplace else in the world you can eat poutine while watching a bag pipe playing Darth Vader ride a unicycle? No? We didn’t think so, welcome to Portland! There are a few things a visitor must do when visiting the rainy city:
Powell’s bookstore on Burnside and Broadway is the largest independent used and new bookstore in the country. It is literally a city block three stories high. Broken up into different theme colored rooms, you may depart the RED room a little blushed.
Bacon on a donut? Don’t fight it, give in to the power of the Bacon Maple Bar. Or perhaps you can devour the Tex-Ass Donut in less than 2 minutes? Winners get the donut for free and the accompanying stomach ache is yours to keep as well. The only donut joint we know of that’s open 24 hours and that have insanely long lines after midnight.
Portlanders love their bicycles and beer, so what better way to tour Portland’s breweries than on a bike built for 12. Make a reservation in advance (of course) and while it’s always fun to do things with friends, if you go alone you won’t be so long. Something about biking, drinking, then biking and drinking makes fast friends fast.
