BIKES/PETS—This town has scads of organized charity rides, but only the Tour de Lab, put on yearly by Lucky Labrador Brewing, is bringing the "pets" heat that earns a vaunted Busy Week nod. Pick a challenging 41-mile course or a timid 18-miler, drink free beer, eat hotdogs, and support nonprofit animal ho

When I saw your online dating profile, I thought "what the hell?" even though in your ad, you stated that you "like to burp loudly and often," but I sorta guessed (hoped) you were kidding. How I was wrong. We met at a North Portland bar and right away, I thought you were way more attractive then your photos. In fact, I

MUSIC—Still no Jarboe, but Michael Gira and Swans are still producing and touring their strange catalog of experimentally mournful ugly/pretty sounds, like those from their most recent, To Be Kind.

You left your toddler daughter in the bathroom at New Seasons and casually shopped the aisle nearby, holding your other daughter in your arms. Did it occur to you, that with no one guarding the door, someone might think this restroom was unoccupied and walk in on your half-naked child? When I was the person to do so, you

When you rolled into town wearing cargo shorts and polo shirt, I'm sure you thought it was a fairytale come to life. You heard about Portland and all its "weirdness' and you heard about how adults can finally live out their childhood fantasies. A playground it was, and after settling in to an apartment and foolishly payi
