Bridgetown Comedy Festival And Other Drunken Things
Comedy aside, Portland is full of cheap and delicious food. I probably ate more gyros and pizza than I have in all of my twenties. It was awesome. Not only that, but good beer, weird ass novelty shops, awesome comic book stores and a giant retro-style arcade filled with 80's-90's arcade staples and pinball machines. Some people leave their hearts in San Francisco, I left a high score on the Streetfighter II machine at Ground Control in Portland. Sure a couple of the theaters I sat in smelled like garlic and BO, but I had lots of fun drunkenly doing time at the Tanker open mic, was able to spend time with old friends, bought some pretty sweet trade paperback comics including Henry & Glenn Forever, ate pre-mentioned foods and had a drunken conversation with Kyle Kinane (and yes, most of what I did was drunken while there). Oh Portland, you definitely put a bird on it.
