I was pretty disappointed by all the vegetarian restaurants when I lived in Portland. I can't seem to remember their names but their food just wasn't that special. You should find plenty of veggie choices in most restaurants, so you shouldn't worry too much anyway.

One of my best friends is a vegetarian and we tried a few places that were that or vegan and tended to be disappointed. Fortunately the rest of Portland's restaraunts are vegie friendly and you can find meat free fare at just about anyplace.
We find Salvador Molly's and Meiji-En have some great options.

Travel Tips for Portland

Health Check For Dummies

Health Check For Dummies

Update: January 2008

One thing you can do while in Portland you can not do anywhere else I'm aware of, is a cheap, accurate cholesterol/glucose check at Providence Portland or Providence St. Vincent hospitals. St Vincent is the easier to get to by either car or bus. Plenty of covered parking.

From Portland's downtown hub, Pioneer Square: Take Blue (Hillsboro) or Red (Beaverton) bound train on Morrison Street, on the north side of Pioneer Square, to PGE park - which is a stadium, not a park. Walk north one block to W Burnside. Walk west to next #20 (Beaverton) Trimet westbound bus stop. Some Trimet buses short-stop at 23rd during off hours, so ask the driver if it is a Beaverton bound bus to make sure. Drivers do not make change. Purchase Trimet tickets beforehand at Pioneer Courthouse Square, anywhere along Max tracks, or via mail via www.trimet.org.

From Beaverton TC (Transit Center): board eastbound #20 Gresham Trimet bus.

St. Vinnies is more or less on the dotted line between Portland & Beaverton. Get off at the first bus stop at St. Vinnies, it stops twice, and walk inside. The bookstore/service center/resource center/whatever is to the left a few steps once inside.

Phone ahead for time, date, and place since both hospitals share the same expensive equipment.

$30 my last check two years ago. Results, worse then I remembered.

Triglycerides = 180; below 150 desireable.
Total Cholesterol = 177; below 200 desireable
Glucose = 89; 60-109 desirable
HDL (Good Cholesterol)= 41; 60 & higher desireable; below 40, high risk.
LDL = 99; (Bad Cholesterol) = 99; below 100 desirable
TC/HDL = 4.3; less the 4 desirable.

Roses: a Portland Tradition

by glabah

One of the reasons why the Willamette River valley was such an attraction for early settlers was the fertile soil, pleantiful rain and ideal climate. Early on, this was recognized as not just good for edible crops, but also very good for roses.

In 1889, Portland had its first "Festival of Roses", which at that time was more of a garden show with all the houses that had spectacular roses. In 1907, this became the parade and amusement park event we know today as the Portland Rose Festival.

Many, many houses had roses then, and have roses today.

Just how ideal is the climate for roses here?

They can grow wild.
They can be found growing and prospering in yards that haven't had any attention for years.
They can be found in long forgotten and abandoned flower beds beside abandoned buildings.
No watering. No trimming. No spraying.
And yet (some varieties anyway) still produce spectacular flowers.
Sometimes (as seen in photo 3) you can find a discarded rose bush root that has decided to take root and grow in the wild, turning into a wild rose in a suburban wilderness area.

It should be no surprise though: roses and apples are related, and apple trees will also grow very well in this climate.

As seen in photo 4, even the older maintenance hatches in the city streets have roses on them (modern ones are made in India and are the same as seen in all other cities).

The web site below is for the Portland Rose Festival, which is probably as good as any for describing the Portland and its rose traditions.

Portland's Engraved Sidewalks and Curbs

by glabah

When Portland first made the transition from wooden sidewalks to concrete, the company, date, and name of streets at intersections were engraved.

Photo 1 shows an original Portland curb and sidewalk: the metal edge used to keep hard wooden and metal wagons from tearing up the concrete if they hit the curb when turning. "REX AVE" preserved: now Rex Street. "Avenue"is reserved for north-south streets.

Dates give a good indication of when various areas of Portland were "civilized". Some of these have lasted over 100 years.

These street names in the sidewalk also show Portland's old street names. For example, Kenilworth Avenue disappeared long ago, and is now SE 28th Place. No one erased the name from the sidewalk, however.

Time moves on, and today Portland must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Most of these old sidewalk street names and the names of the companies that made them are disappearing into the marching tide of modern sidewalk design and standardization of all intersections to look just like those in any other city.

However, after protests from citizens after the new curb design appeared, the city did decide to carve new street names and the new date, plus the original sidewalk date, into the new sections of sidewalk in order to preserve this tradition. These can be seen in many of the recently rebuilt intersections. Unfortunately, the old street names are not preserved. Also erased forever: the emblems and names of the companies that did the original work.

In only two cases so far, I have found a situation where the crew who replaced the sidewalk exercised enough care to preserve the old company name and date. An example of this is at SE 92nd and Ellis street.

Portland area offerings

by archan4698

Portland is a good place for sports, not for the viewing of them(only one pro team in town) but doing them!

Portland is usually voted one of the most runner,bike friendly cities in the USA and there are many good running paths near downtown.

Popular ones are along the waterfront, and up into Forest Park.
After rush hours your premitted to legally skateboard in the street in the downtown area, last time I checked(no I am not joking). whatever your interests, The Portland area has great skiing, one of the best windsurfing areas in the world(The Gorge), biking, and hiking areas.

A legendary saloon in Portland

by Jefie

Erickson's Workingman's Club was established towards the end of the 19th century at NW 2nd Ave & Couch St. This saloon was so big, it employed 50 bartenders, covered nearly an entire block in the Old Town area, and had five separate entrances (in fact, there's a story about a drunken customer who got kicked out of all five doors without ever realizing he'd been trying to get into the same saloon each time!). For a nickel you could have a beer and snack on some sausages, cheese, bread and pickled herring. The place was so popular that during the 1894 flood, patrons still found a way to get to Erickson's on rowboats and canoes! Something else that was popular were the stools along the 684 foot long bar, and to avoid having to get up and possibly lose their seat, patrons took the habit of, hem, relieving themselves right there at the bar. Instead of condoning this practice, an "irrigation system" was added, and voila: customers could take it in and let it out all in the same spot!

In case you're wondering, Erickson's saloon is now a popular nightclub called "Barracuda." I'm guessing that patrons no longer pee on the floor, but then who knows?!
