Ecru

Choosing the proper wedding invitation is serious business. It is the first thing that people truly see about what’s going on for your wedding. It is an ultimate first impression. You need to strike exactly the right notes to ensure you have the emotional tone you need. You can’t simply go for the cheapest option. We’ve all seen that episode of Seinfeld, and we surely knows how that will end up: badly. Instead, you need to go a professional, such as the staff at...

Cargo

If you think about Portland as having the geography of Asia (which is certainly something you do quite often), then China is obviously Chinatown, a big red area that dominates the lower portion of Northwest Portland. However, if Chinatown is China, then Cargo has to be Taiwan. Cargo is a little piece of Chinatown that was somehow thrown into a block-sized warehouse in the Pearl District. In an area filled with top design furniture galleries, and haute cuisine restaurant,...

Hunt and Gather

Hunt and Gather, on the corner of Northwest Thirteenth Avenue and Hoyt Street in the Pearl District, is one of those uniquely Portland shopping discoveries. When you walk buy it, you see only a banner hanging on what is either dilapidated or well-aged brick wall of a former warehouse. Now, your expectations are set. This place is just going to be another one of those spare former industrial area furniture stores stocked with modern tables and couches with clean straight...

Thea’s Interiors

If there’s one thing that’s truly easy to find in the Pearl District, it’s things for your house. Whether you need a total overhaul of your kitchen, a new couch, or various decorations, the Pearl District has you covered. That has a flip side, though, with such a large selection of places to go, it’s that much harder and time-consuming to find the right place. Thea’s Interiors, on Northwest Twelfth Avenue and Glisan Street, has to be one of the first places...

Sorella Luna

The Pearl District street of Twelfth Avenue in Northwest Portland forms a bit of an axis of Umbria for a few blocks. Umbria is the region that forms the exact geographical center of Italy. If Tuscany is Seattle, Umbria is Portland. It’s the lesser-known, yet way cooler spot. It’s cheaper, prettier, and the people are nicer. At the top, at the corner of Twelfth and Everett, you have Caffe Umbria, which serves coffee in a traditional Umbrian style. Then, further down,...

Pearl Printing

Pearl Printing is the final stop for any artist in the Pearl District. The process of creating a work of art is a long and difficult one, starting with the spark of creativity, then the weeks, months, or years that go into planning a work of art, then finding the supplies, and then executing the work of art in exactly the right way, sometimes taking a multitude of tries. It’s tough. Then, you have to find a gallery to have your art shown at, and then, finally, comes...

Cinema 21

Cinema 21 is a callback to the old days of movie glory. It’s the kind of place that used to be everywhere in Portland, but have since disappeared. It’s a movie palace, in the best sense of the term. It’s a place that exists solely for the reverence of movies. Obviously, due to all of these things, it’s considered one of the great landmarks of Northwest 21st Avenue. In a city that is absolutely fanatical about art and art film, Cinema 21 is one of the main places...

Comedy Sportz

Finding comedy in Portland is really easy to do. You can go to comedy clubs such as Harvey’s or Helium in order to get a good laugh, or you can check out some of the bigger traveling acts that come through places such as the Roseland, the Aladdin, or the Crystal Ballroom. If that’s not enough, there are also the local theaters such as the Curious Comedy Theater or the Brody Theater. Still, while there is a lot of comedy in Portland, your options get severely limited...

Oregon Jewish Museum

One of the best parts of Portland is the city’s commitment to educating itself. This is most evident in the city’s collection of museums. From the world-class work done at places such as the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry or the Portland Art Museum, to the proliferation of galleries that make up the Pearl District and Alberta Arts District, to the smaller scale and more intimate museums such as the Oregon Nikkei Legacy center, a trip through Portland gives...

Northwest Neighborhood Cultural Center

Community spaces are integral to the health of any neighborhood or large group of people. The idea of having a place where everybody can go, talk, and gather is an attractive one. It’s often what makes a church so valuable to a community, no matter what you believe. You can’t replace camaraderie, friendship, and community. In the upper areas of Northwest Portland, citizens in that neighborhood can gather at the Northwest Neighborhood Cultural Center. The Northwest...

The 3D Center of Art and Photography

These days, when you go out to the movie theater or even when you watch television, 3D is unavoidable. All of the biggest blockbuster movies are either being shot in 3D, or are being refitted for the format. Beyond that, 3D has invaded television, as well, promising to be the next evolutionary step after high definition. What’s not to love with that, though? Film, when it was first made, was meant to be an approximation of the stage, yet it always struggled with depth....

The Canvas

It’s a formula that you may be surprised hasn’t been done more before. Portland’s a city that loves to combine beer with some of its favorite activities. You see that in large collective bike rides to brewpubs. There are the record stores now popping up that do double duty as bars. A general way to improve just about any activity in Portland is suggested as this: “Put a beer on it!” That’s what makes the Canvas so surprising. It combines two of Northwest...
