Posh Baby

No, the name “Posh Baby” does not refer to an upcoming infant from British power couple David and Victoria Beckham. Okay, it might. But when you are in Portland (and the Beckhams aren’t in town for a match against the Timbers), the name “Posh Baby” is applied to the appropriately titled upscale baby boutique located in the Pearl District at the corner of Northwest Eleventh Avenue and Johnson Street. Yes, a trip with a baby to Posh Baby makes an ideal day in...

There are so many things that go into being a parent-to-be, and it seriously is one of the toughest jobs in the world.

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,...

Seven Planet

Seven Planet is the Old Town-Chinatown resource for everything green, renewable, and eco-friendly – any word you can think of that describes an item, a tool, or a gift that’s good for the planet. The Seven Planet building actually consists of three separate stores. First, is the Seven Planet store itself. To the right, just off of the entrance is Botanica. And further in the back, through an archway, you’ll find Cafe Nirvahnah. According to the mission statement...

Stella’s on 21st

Stella’s on 21st is one of those best types of Portland finds. It’s a gift shop that is found at 21st Avenue and Pettygrove Street, just a few short blocks from the major center of 21st Avenue’s hustle and bustle that starts at Lovejoy Street. So, when you finally do see it, when you start going into the more housing-concentrated portion of the famous thoroughfare, you’ll feel like you made a discovery, like you found something that not many other people know...

U.S. Wushu Center

Watching the martial arts in classic Hong Kong movies is a mesmerizing experience. How do they move so fast? How do they kick so high? How do they do any of it? The answer, like with most athletic or artistic endeavors, is simple: practice. You are capable of the same feats of feet that you see in the movies, you just only need to practice at it and learn how to do it. The place in Northwest Portland to build up your knowledge in martial arts is the U.S. Wushu Center,...

Lollipop Rooster

There are a few treats out there that truly make you feel like a kid again. You know, the treats that not only taste great, but also taste of nostalgia, of summers spent running around outside as a child, playing with friends and not having any responsibility. Smores are certainly one of the best examples of this, combining the tastiness of chocolate and marshmallows with the irresistibility of playing with fire. One of the most iconic sweet treats, though, has to...

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...

Green Frog Toys

It probably says something about the Pearl District that there are more stores where you can buy toys for your dogs than there are where you can buy toys for you children. Or maybe it’s just commentary on how great the goods from Green Frog Toys are. Green Frog is located on Eleventh Avenue between Lovejoy Street and Marshall Street. It is also conveniently near the Children’s Healing Art Project Art Factory, making for a convenient fun place to go after your kid...

Ready Paint Fire

Making pottery is a wonderful feeling. There’s such a sense of accomplishment from taking a piece of the earth and shaping it to make something beautiful and totally original. It truly makes you feel in touch not only with your own creativity, but with the planet at large. Unless, of course, you have no aptitude for sculpting or creating pots or bowls. In that case, pottery can make for a very stressful experience, and one that you have avoided since that one tragic...

Playdate PDX

Sometimes, a playground simply isn’t enough. Sure, the kids can climb around on a jungle gym, and go up and down a bunch of slides, and use their imagination to act like they are pirates, astronauts, or pirate astronauts, but sometimes going to that same playground may get dull. And if it’s dull for the kid, it’s probably dull for the parent. That’s what makes Playdate PDX so useful. Playdate PDX is a massive indoor playground that is housed in an industrial...
