VEGGIN’ OUT

STREET SCENE

AROUND THE REGION

What do a craft brewer, a woman-owned clothing company and a small-batch coffee roasting outfit have in common? Each of these local ventures combines business goals with a healthy dose of social activism and doing good for the community.

A new wave of vegetable-centric restaurants means Portland’s lauded dining scene is fresher than ever. We reveal five spots leading the way. Between sit-down meals, seek out the healthiest smoothies and bowls, then treat yourself to some sinfully good vegan junk food.

To truly experience Portland, go beyond the city center and explore the town’s distinctive neighborhoods. Eat, shop and play just like a local in 10 of the city’s liveliest districts, each of which exudes its own sense of quirk and cool.

Enhance your trip to Portland with easy (and unforgettable) getaways to must-see locales like snowy Mount Hood, the Oregon Coast and the vineyards of the Willamette Valley. Plus, learn how the Columbia River Gorge is recovering after last year’s wildfires.

NEW HOTEL THE HOXTON, PORTLAND WILL OPEN IN 2018

A City in Transition

As Portland grows, residents strive to maintain the city’s character.

P H OTO G R A P H B Y A A R O N L E E

B

y the year 2020, Portland will have 4,000 new hotel rooms. That represents a 40% growth since 2016 — and it’s just one example of how the city is changing. The population is also forecast to surge 40% by 2035, and Portland’s progressive urban growth boundary means that the city will grow up, not out. Once-quiet streets now buzz with activity (and traffic). As old buildings are demolished to make way for new construction, worries over gentrification and affordability mount. These changes don’t come without growing pains. Along with many other Western cities, Portland declared a housing emergency in 2015 and is still struggling to provide sufficient affordable housing for its residents. You will see homeless people on the streets of Portland.

BY KAREN MARTWICK

Historic racism and poor planning decisions have pushed many black residents out of the neighborhoods they built. These struggles aren’t unique to Portland, but the city and its residents are actively reflecting on how we are changing, and grappling with the question of how we want to change. For visitors, this all means that Portland is a different place than it used to be. If you haven’t visited in a few years, the city will wow you with its new restaurants, bars, stores and areas to explore. Our population is more diverse and there are more cultural and entertainment offerings than ever. And if you’ve never visited, this is a great time to discover Portland — even as we discover the city we’re becoming.

ith 76 (and counting) breweries, the Rose City is renowned for its legendary microbrew culture. And with all that variety, there’s always something exciting on tap. Drop by these four newer brewpubs to experience Portland’s ever-expanding beer culture.

BREAKSIDE BREWING

At Breakside’s stylish, tri-level restaurant and bar, enjoy fresh-hop beers (plus sours, pale ales, lagers, smoked porters and stouts, among others) along with incredible Forest Park views. Don’t miss the Wanderlust IPA, which took gold at the 2017 Best of Craft Beer Awards. 1570 N.W. 22nd Ave.; 503.444.7597; breakside.com

WAYFINDER BEER (Sample 4 new ones on this page)

Find nearly a dozen house-made brews and a constantly refreshed guest tap list inside this renovated, century-old, brick-and-wood-filled space in the Central Eastside. The Full of Fire, a smoked porter with big notes of malt and beechwood smoke, is especially entic-

ing, as are the outdoor fire pit and expansive deck. 304 S.E. Second Ave.; 503.718.2337; wayfinder.beer

SASQUATCH BREWING COMPANY

Critter-dotted murals of nearby Forest Park and airy bay windows brighten this sleek metal and concrete warehouse in the Northwest Industrial district. Sample elevated pub fare, hoppy IPAs, house-made ciders and playful taps.

LEVEL BEER

The goal here is easy fun: Kids are very welcome in the former farm’s greenhouse beer garden, food carts dish up a range of eats, and a small hops field out back hosts lawn games and live music. Popular beer picks include lighter-alcohol brews, like a dry-hopped saison or smooth porter. It’s minutes from PDX airport. 5211 N.E. 148th Ave.; 503.714.1222; levelbeer.com

KNOW YOUR HASHTAG

#RCTID stands for “Rose City ’til I die,” taken from the Timbers Army chant sung after the opposing team scores a goal. #BAON is short for “by any other name,” as in, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Taken from the famous line in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, this tag alludes to the Riveters’ support for the Thorns players themselves, not just the team name.

IndyCar races back into the Rose City this Labor Day. BY KAREN MARTWICK

A

fter more than a decade, Portland will welcome the return of open-wheel racing with the Grand Prix of Portland (portlandgp.com) on Sept. 2, 2018. Held from 1984–2007 under various names, the race is back at Portland International Raceway (1940 N. Victory Blvd.; 503.823.7223; portlandraceway.com) as the only Verizon IndyCar Series race in the Pacific Northwest. Unlike the most famous IndyCar race — the Indianapolis 500 — the Grand Prix of Portland isn’t run on a simple oval. Portland’s 1.967-mile (3.166 km) course boasts 12 turns and several exciting passing opportunities, including a quick chicane at the end of the front stretch, a hard-breaking right leading into the backstretch and a three-turn complex leading back to the front stretch. “Portland International Raceway has produced thrilling road racing

throughout Indy car history — the 1997 finish still stands as the record for the closest finish on a road or street course,” says Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Company, owners of the Verizon IndyCar Series. The race weekend (Aug. 28–Sept. 2) will include three other races, all featuring aspiring young drivers and new state-ofthe-art chassis. While in town, car lovers should visit the Portland Art Museum (1219 S.W. Park Ave.; 503.226.2811; portlandartmuseum.org), where “The Shape of Speed” exhibit (June 16–Sept. 16) highlights 18 rare vehicles from 1930–1942. And don’t miss World of Speed (27490 S.W. 95th Ave., Wilsonville; 503.563.6444; worldofspeed.org), a motor racing museum south of Portland where you can get behind the wheel of an IndyCar simulator.

Portland-based She Shreds magazine turns up the volume on the talents of women in the music industry. BY EMILLY PRADO

P H OTO G R A P H B Y A S H L E Y A N D E R S O N

ot only is print not dead — turns out it flat-out jams. Just ask Fabi Reyna, a Portlander who founded She Shreds magazine in 2012 at the ripe age of 20. Filled with thoughtful profiles of icons like Laura Jane Grace and St. Vincent, along with tabs and gear reviews, her groundbreaking publication is the world’s only magazine dedicated to women guitarists and bassists. Portland’s rich crop of musicians provides lots of local shredders to feature (Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker and Beyoncé’s Bibi McGill have each appeared), but She Shreds also includes international artists, such as Argentine experimental performer Juana Molina. Such global vision is a reflection of the founder’s own diverse experiences. The Mexican-born Reyna relocated to Portland from Austin in 2009, after

visiting the Rose City to attend the Rock ’n’ Roll Camp for Girls. Since that time, Reyna says the music scene here has evolved. “I feel like Portland is waking up in the representation and visibility that it’s lacked in the past,” she says. “I notice a lot of other [people of color]driven bands are being nurtured by the community.” Reyna is planning a September 2018 event in Portland to celebrate She Shreds’ fifth anniversary. Going forward, she has her sights set on an even bigger picture. “I think that our mission is to grow internationally — that’s where we’re heading right now,” she says. “But we definitely take that which we receive here in Portland and continue to spread that vibe and message of building community throughout the music scenes all over the world.”

EMMA MCILROY OF WILDFANG

MISSION

THE CITIZENS OF PORTLAND have a serious thing for making the world a better

place. Humanitarian heavyweights like Mercy Corps and Medical Teams International anchor a rich and diverse nonprofit scene, but you’ll also find an energetic activist spirit in the stuff of daily life — a brewery that funds mentors for at-risk children, for instance, or a T-shirt that’s a call to action for nonbi-

I WILDFANG

nspired by what they considered a lack in their own closets, Emma Mcilroy and Julia Parsley launched Wildfang back in 2013 simply to provide cool menswear-inspired looks tailored for women’s bodies. They ended up kickstarting a fashion movement. On the one hand, Wildfang is a brand selling button-ups, hoodies, trousers, oxfords and more for women or anyone who has no use for gender stereotypes. On the other hand, the LGBTQAfriendly company has become a point of connection — a home, both online and at their two chic Portland shops — for, as Mcilroy puts it, “badass women.” Fueled by the 2016 presidential election, the company’s signature Wild Feminist T-shirt (now a whole collection) was worn proudly by celebrities and popped up all over Instagram. Por-

tions of profits from this and other popular collections (Rise + Riot, The Future is Fluid) go to organizations like Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, She Should Run, I Am That Girl and the Tegan and Sara Foundation; they raised more than $75,000 in 2017. The store hosts monthly storytelling sessions featuring “misfits and uplift folks,” and Mcilroy has partnered with 10 Barrel Brewing and Union Wine Co to raise money and defy stereotypes (yes, women brew beer, too). “We didn’t set out to be political,” Mcilroy says. “But it turns out it’s political just being a woman.” When you visit, check out Wildfang’s slick new in-house suiting collection, with styles in whites, bright, florals and classic hues, up to size 20. 404 S.W. 10th Ave., 503.964.6746; 1230 S.E.

JOEL GREGORY OF EX NOVO

“I DIDN’T SEE ANY REASON WHY THE [BREWERY’S] VALUES SHOULD DEVIATE FROM MY OWN.” EX NOVO BREWER JAKE BLUMENFELD

EX NOVO

TRAVELPORTLAND.COM

S

tirred by a local justice conference he attended in 2012, home brewer Joel Gregory developed a novel business idea: Sell beer without making a penny — or, more exactly, start a brewery that donates all of its profits to meaningful causes. And that’s just what Ex Novo has done. Since launching in 2014, the brewery has supported its first four causes (Friends of the Children, International Justice Mission, Impact NW and Mercy Corps) with hundreds of volunteer hours, product for fundraisers and $30,000 in donations as of 2017. “When we took a step back to think about what we wanted to be, I didn’t see any reason why the values should deviate from my own: a commitment to generosity and giving, even when it’s a bit of a sacrifice,” says Gregory. “We built that into the model and made it part of the brewery’s DNA.” Also in the DNA — exceptional beers and food. Set just a few blocks from the Moda Center, the family-friendly pub pours an everevolving mix of funky, seasonal and one-off brews (sours, farmhouse ales, black lager, barleywine) along with a few flagships. “We obsess over that beer list,” Gregory says. Be sure to order the carnitas street tacos and a pint of The Most Interesting Lager in the World, a crisp Mexican lager with a hint of flaked corn. “It never gets old,” Gregory says, “even in the winter.” The seasonal menu has vegetarians covered — think beet Reubens and persimmon bruschetta. For dessert? A beer milkshake, of course. 2326 N. Flint Ave.; 503.894.8251; exnovobrew.com

hat if you could help people affected by poverty and addiction gain transferable job skills and support their families simply by drinking a killer cup of craft coffee? Enter Central City Concern (CCC), a Portland nonprofit that has been working to end homelessness since 1979. Inspired by successes with their other social enterprises (e.g., a bed bug–resistant furniture line), in 2012, CCC participated with Portland State University’s Social Innovation Incubator. That’s where the idea to create a comprehensive coffee production company was born. “Central City Coffee is a six-month jobs training program for single parents — all women so far — who live in our family housing,” explains Sarah Porter, CCC’s social enterprises program manager. “From collecting orders and roasting beans to delivery, outreach and more, our participants literally run

the business.” So far, 25 graduates have landed stable full-time jobs at the likes of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Vibra Speciality Hospital and even within CCC. Others have enrolled in college courses, and, perhaps most inspiring, some have also regained custody of children from relatives or foster care. Central City Coffee plans to open its own coffee cart downtown (“More jobs and more skills!” Porter says), but for now, beans can be found at the South Waterfront, Lloyd and Moreland farmers markets and specialty grocery stores like New Seasons, Whole Foods and Green Zebra. Be sure to snag a bag of Velocity, an easy-drinking medium roast with sweet notes of caramel, cinnamon and pear. The beans are sourced from Coocentral, a Colombian coffee co-op with a strong commitment to social welfare and the environment. centralcitycoffee.org

Ichiza Kitchen A popular date-night spot for Portland’s veggie set, Ichiza Kitchen offers authentic takes on classic eats from across Asia. Using family recipes and traditional techniques, chef-owner Cyrus Ichiza creates vegan versions of chicken adobo, halo-halo, money bag dumplings and tonkotsu ramen with faux pork belly, among other dishes. For the full experience, pair your meal with Chinese gaiwan tea service, featuring a menu of oolong teas with names like “hairy crab” and “blue people.” 1628 S.W.

scene.

It’s only fitting that a city with a plant-based nickname — the City of Roses — is a haven of meat-free eating. In fact, CNN, Condé Nast Traveler and US News & World Report have all declared Portland one of the most vegan/vegetarian-friendly destinations in the country, if not the world. But even omnivores can enjoy the fresh, flavorful plant-based cooking coming out of the city. Simply approach these celebrated local eateries with an open mind, and you’ll soon be chowing down on seasonal produce, inventive tasting menus and family recipes from around the world.

Located in the middle of Southeast Division’s “Restaurant Row,” this family-run spot eschews Thai staples like fish sauce and shrimp paste, much to the delight of strict vegans. Executive Chef Renoo Jansala, who previously ran an all-vegetarian eatery in her native Thailand, offers a lengthy menu of traditional meat-free favorites, from flavorful tofu and veggie stir-fries to deftly veganized pad Thai and Thai iced tea. 2932 S.E.

TUSK A joint venture by chefs Joshua McFadden (author of Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables) and Sam Smith, this Middle Easterninspired eatery was named 2017 Restaurant of the Year by both Bon AppÊtit and Food & Wine Magazine. Omnivores can supplement their meals with ground lamb and pork skewers, but you’d be wise to focus on the creamy hummus du jour, whole-grain pita and daily salads topped with whipped feta or turmeric yogurt. 2448 E.

Founded in a scrappy hut on Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard, this popular juice bar now boasts five Portland locations. Best sellers include the coconutty Extra Mile smoothie and the Bowl of the Gods, a heavenly açai bowl blended with peanut butter, banana and vanilla protein powder. Multiple locations; 855.777.5873; kurejuicebar.com

prasad

With two locations — one inside Yoga Pearl in the Pearl District and another above the Portland Rock Gym on the east side — Prasad offers a robust menu of macrobiotic bowls, superfood smoothies and healthified espresso drinks to anyone that’s worked up an appetite. Arrive early to score a tempeh scramble with jalapeño cashew cheese, or bliss out with a turmeric latte and a plate of raw vegan pad Thai. Multiple locations; prasad pdx.com

farm spirit

A nationally renowned destination for vegan fine dining, modernist Farm Spirit crafts local, seasonal ingredients into fanciful eight-course tasting menus. (And when we say local, we mean it — virtually every ingredient comes from the Cascadia bioregion and was grown less than 100 miles [161 km] away.) You’ll need a reservation; the chef’s counter restaurant only serves 28 lucky patrons per night, and dinners often sell out weeks in advance. 1414 S.E. Morrison St.; farmspiritpdx.com

This Scandinavian-chic café offers plenty of fresh, organic eats, but our money’s on the Portland Bowl (quinoa, black beans, tempeh and veggies topped with Oregon hazelnuts and cheesy vegan sauce) and the decadent Maca & Friends smoothie. 2816 S.E. Stark St.; 503.922.1858; canteenpdx. com

Sink your teeth into the “All or Nothing,” filled with cookie butter and topped with rich chocolate ganache. 8201 S.E. Powell Blvd.; 503.333.4404; doedonuts.com

One of the city’s most famous plant-based eateries, this vegan barbecue joint is worth the trek to North Portland’s St. Johns neighborhood. Load up a combo plate with house-smoked tempeh ribs, seitan “h’yam,” hush puppies and “macnocheese.” 8638 N. Lombard St.; 503.477.7274; homegrownsmoker.com

Rudy’s Pizza Portland offers dozens of vegan pizza options, but unassuming Rudy’s has gained an outsized following of devotees. A massive menu includes calzones, cheesy breads, wings and swoon-worthy pies like the Veggiesaurus, which boasts (meatless) bacon, meatballs, pepperoni, sausage and cheese. 2443 S.E.

STILL F GORGE-OUS

The year after the Eagle Creek Wildfire, the Columbia River Gorge prevails as an iconic destination. BY TAMARA BELGARD

ewer than 30 minutes east of Portland, the Columbia River Gorge is the crown jewel of Oregon’s outdoor destinations. Designated as a National Scenic Area in 1986, the landscape is filled with tree-topped bluffs and thundering waterfalls. Unfortunately, in September 2017, the Eagle Creek Fire raged here for weeks, scarring nearly 50,000 acres (20,234 ha). But thanks to the resilient landscape — and diligent recovery efforts — the area is still prime for discovering.

What’s open?

CROWN POINT 58

For more information on the Columbia River Gorge, visit hood-gorge.com.

At press time, more than 140 miles (225 km) of trails remain closed post-fire, including the popular Multnomah Falls, Horsetail, Ponytail and Triple Falls loop, Eagle Creek Trail and Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail, west of Cascade Locks. But the towns of Cascade Locks and Hood River, along with several trails and parks, are welcoming visitors again. Check in with the Friends of the Gorge (gorgefriends.org) for updates on current trail closures. Patronizing businesses like those detailed here is one of the best ways to assist the gorge’s recovery.


Begin your gorge adventure at Vista House (40700 E. Historic Columbia River Hwy.; vistahouse.com). Opened in 1917, this architectural marvel provides a windswept overlook of the gorge’s towering 4,000-foot (1,219 m) cliffs. Inside, a trove of historical exhibits and regional artwork illuminates a fascinating history. The WPA-era Bonneville Lock and Dam (nwp.usace. army.mil/bonneville) draws families for educational tours of the original power house and viewing windows of the salmon and sturgeon fish ladders. The Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler (portlandspirit.com) offers a unique way to tour the gorge: a sightseeing cruise that includes history of both Oregon and Washington states. In Cascade Locks, the Easy Climb Trail (cascadelocks.com) provides beginner-friendly mountain biking. For a sweet treat, try local treasure East Wind Drive-In (395 Wa Na Pa St., Cascade Locks; 541.374.8380) for soft-serve ice cream, or grab a beer at Thunder Island Brewing (515 S.W. Portage Rd., Cascade Locks; 971.231.4599; thunderislandbrewing.com) nestled on the banks of the Columbia River.

DAY 2

Hood River is famed for its windsurfing and kiteboarding, but the town’s walkable, shop-filled streets offer plenty of leisurely pursuits. Visit Pine Street Bakery (1103 12th St., Hood River; 541.386.1719; pinestreetbakery.

com) for coffee and baked goods. Once you’re fueled up, stroll down Oak Street to Twiggs (305 Oak St., Hood River; 541.386.6188; twiggshoodriver.com) for unique jewelry, home accents and custom gifts your friends will love, then pop into Art on Oak (210 Oak St., Hood River; 541.436.4472; artonoak.com), a gallery featuring a stunning variety of art from both well-known and up-and-coming local artists. Water (and wind) lovers should drop into Big Winds (207 Front St., Hood River; 541.386.6086; bigwinds.com) for stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), wind- and kite-surfing gear, rentals and lessons. Road bike enthusiasts will enjoy the Hood River to Mosier Trail (oregonstateparks.org). Winding along the historic Columbia River Highway, this paved trail remains open, offering 9 miles (14.5 km) of breathtaking views highlighting the gorge’s tunnels, basalt cliffs and forest canopies. Sample the town’s rich craft brew scene at pFriem (707 Portway Ave., Hood River; 541.321.0490; pfriembeer. com), a Belgium-inspired gastropub with picturesque views of the Columbia and easy access to the paved Waterfront Trail (hoodriverwaterfront. org). Wine lovers will enjoy The Pines 1852 Tasting Room (202 Cascade Ave., Hood River; 541.993.8301; thepinesvineyard.com) in downtown Hood River, featuring wines from some of the oldest zinfandel vines in the state.

SIGHTS ON COLUMBIA Northwest of Portland, Columbia County is a destination for cycling and kayaking. BY MICHELLE KEHM

TRAVELPORTLAND.COM

About an hour’s drive northwest of Portland, the forest retreat of Vernonia (vernonia-or.gov) was once a thriving logging town rumbling with the sound of timber-loaded trains. Today, this tranquil escape boasts two rail-to-trail bike paths and is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. The paved Banks-Vernonia State Trail (oregonstateparks.org) stretches 21 miles (34 km) from Vernonia to Banks, gliding through parks, under Douglas firs and over the Buxton Trestle, a breathtaking rail relic rising 80 feet (24 m) above Mendenhall Creek. Bring your own wheels and start your trip at Vernonia’s Anderson Park (450 Jefferson Ave.; 503.429.2531; vernoniaor.gov). Or base your trip at the private, 28-acre (11 ha) Vernonia Springs

Mountain bikers shouldn’t miss the graveled Crown Zellerbach Trail, which begins 4 miles (7 km) north of Vernonia on the Scappoose-Vernonia Highway and runs 20 miles (32 km) to Scappoose. There’s more to explore off the bike in Vernonia. Once the Oregon-American Lumber Company headquarters, the Vernonia Pioneer Museum (511 E. Bridge St.; 503.429.3713; vernonia-or.gov) is a goldmine of old photos and logging tools.

Situated in downtown McMinnville’s historic district, the new Atticus Hotel (375 Ford St.; 503.472.1975; atticushotel.com) is just steps from some of the region’s best tasting rooms, restaurants and boutiques. Independently owned and operated, the four-story hotel, decorated with local art and furnishings, has 36 rooms, each with a fireplace. Accommodations include studios, one-bedroom suites, a two-bedroom penthouse and a luxury bunkhouse for six, ideal for group getaways. Charge up your electric car before exploring wine country, borrow one of the complimentary Dutch bikes, or stay in and enjoy seasonally driven food and drinks in the hotel’s spacious restaurant.

SOKOL BLOSSER WINE HIKE

Maysara Winery (maysara.com) are three producers making these juicy, approachable and affordable wines. But there’s also been a recent explosion in more refined méthode champenoise wines, thanks to the Radiant Wine Company’s mobile unit. The company brings the equipment and expertise to wineries like Ponzi (ponziwines.com), Raptor Ridge (raptorridgewinery.com) and ROCO (rocowinery.com), making it easier for winemakers to offer bubblies.

A surge of interest in natural wines created a new wave of pét-nats (short for pétillant naturel), which are sparklers made in the low-tech méthode ancestrale style (the wines are bottled before they finish fermenting). Day Wines (daywines.com), Johan Vineyards (johanvineyards.com) and

You can enjoy a guided hike at several Willamette Valley wineries, including Anne Amie (anneamie.com), Patton Valley (pattonvalley.com) and Sokol Blosser (sokolblosser.com). Generally scheduled in mid- to late summer, the hikes visit the very grapes destined for the next vintage and enlighten you on everything from geology to farming practices. The hikes include wine tasting and, often, lunch at the end. Patton Valley’s hike coincides with harvest and offers the chance to participate in harvest activities with the winemaker.

A Night with the Bard

Pair live productions of Shakespeare with balmy outdoor air, stellar wines and gorgeous views and what do you get? A midsummer night’s dream. (Or maybe Hamlet?) Either way, you’re in for a treat when you hit one of Willamette Shakespeare’s (willametteshakespeare. com) al fresco performances held at a series of wineries every weekend in August. The company’s performances are done in partnership with the Portland Actors Ensemble and are always free, family-friendly and open to the public.

F

or more than six decades, the farmerowned Tillamook County Creamery Association has provided one of the tastiest — if not cheesiest — attractions on the Oregon Coast. The Tillamook Creamery Visitor Center (4175 Highway 101, Tillamook; 503.815.1300; TUALITAN RIVER tillamook.com) welcomes up to 1.3 million visitors annually, all eager to take a nibble of out of this AMHILL coastal treasure. But this summer, the creamery is taking the cheese (and ice cream) to another level, with a completely new and L expanded visitor center. Developed by award-winning design firm Olson Kundig, whose projects include the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, Tillamook’s new 38,500-square-foot (3,577

sq m) facility will be twice the size of the original location, making space for new exhibits and loads of improvements in the form of hands-on education, interactive exhibits and events. The new center’s modern layout includes an expanded café with a revamped menu featuring wood-fired pizza, locally sourced ingredients and a beverage list heavy with Pacific Northwest wine and beer selections. And the wildly popular ice cream parlor, where you’ll find up to 30 house-made flavors, will be upgraded to include an indoor/ outdoor service counter. Ready to get really cheesy? Educational exhibits will abound, including a remodeled viewing gallery where you can scope the cheese-making action in real-time.

nce an underground phenomenon, Portland’s hiphop culture has burst into the mainstream thanks to breakout local acts like The Last Artful, Dodgr, whose 2017 album Bone Music received praise from Pitchfork, and Aminé, who racked up more than 200 million YouTube views with his hit single “Caroline.” Portland even has an official Hip-Hop Day (Oct. 15). The scene has come a long way. In spite of a tumultuous history that included discrimination (in the form of local law enforcement targeting hip-hop and rap shows) and marquee venue closures, Portland hip-hop has flourished. That’s thanks in part to a mix of veteran performers and an infusion of new talent that appears at regular hip-hop showcases around town. The Thesis, organized by former rapper and We Out Here Magazine editor-in-chief Mac Smiff, happens every first Thursday of the month at Kelly’s Olympian

(426 S.W. Washington St.; 503.228.3669; kellysolympian. com). Launched by the late emcee/host/radio personality StarChile in 2016, the emcee showcase Mic Check at White Eagle Saloon (836 N. Russell St.; 503.282.6810; mcmenamins com) goes down every last Thursday. Holocene (1001 S.E. Morrison St.; 503.239.7639; holocene. org) features frequent hip-hop shows and served as the homebase for a recent summer concert series by rapper/ activist Glenn Waco. Hip-hop fans can also visit Downtown’s boutique/ barber shop By the Collective (205 S.W. Pine St.; 971.266.0969; bythecollective.com) and North Mississippi Avenue’s Yanagida Clothing (3962 N. Mississippi Ave.; 503.509.0746; yanagidaprojects.com) for album release parties and merch from local artists.

hat’s Portland’s latest food cart craze? Think delicious duets. It makes perfect sense once you’ve caught a show courtesy of the Portland Opera A La Cart (portlandopera.com/alacart) program. Inspired by the city’s prodigious food cart scene — and a hunger for sharing opera culture in unexpected ways — the Portland Opera now presents impromptu productions run out of a converted popcorn truck. This stage on wheels launched in 2016, enabling up to 40 appearances each spring and summer. Such mobility allows the opera to break out of its theater walls (and traditional winter season) and find ready-made crowds at popular attractions around town, like food cart pods, farmers markets and the Portland Saturday Market. Performances run from June to

August; visit portlandopera.com/ alacart for schedule. “We wanted to reach people in places they already are, to bring the opera to them,” says Clare Burovac, Portland Opera’s director of artistic operations. Once on-site, the truck, which was created in collaboration with Portland State University design students, is transformed into a compact performance venue, complete with a fold-out stage and piano. Patrons can even order a tune: A chalkboard menu lists a daily selection of arias to be performed on the spot by a trio of singers. Popular numbers like “Some Enchanted Evening” and “Over the Rainbow” are served fresh and complimentary. “People are surprised by it,” says Burovac. “They’ll stop, they’ll listen to an aria, and say, ‘I didn’t think I liked opera, but I really like this.’”

The world’s oldest performing drag queen holds court in the Rose City.

night at Darcelle XV Showplace (208 N.W. Third Ave.; 503.222.5338; darcellexv.com) hits you like a cannonball of glitter. How else to describe the cavalcade of sequin-drenched drag queens who routinely dazzle crowds at the nation’s longest-running drag show? Now in its 50th year, the club’s Vegas-style cabaret routine owes its enduring charm (and boundless energy) to “Darcelle” (a.k.a. Walter Cole), who has been headlining at the Old Town landmark since 1974 — a feat that has earned Cole the title of “Guinness World Records’ Oldest Performing Drag Queen.” “I’m proud of it,” Cole says of his longtime reign. “I don’t even mind saying I’m 87.” But it’s his deeper connection to the community that really sparkles. Cole’s alter ego, Darcelle (named

in honor of ’50s film star Denise Darcel), is a beloved ambassador for the LGBTQ+ community. From headlining in gay pride parades to starring in the Netflix documentary Queen of Hearts and serving as the 15th empress of the Imperial Sovereign Rose Court — an organization raising money for charities since the 1980s AIDS crisis — Darcelle has helped further acceptance for gay lives. Still, the stage is Cole’s first true love. Despite nearing 90, he still performs as Darcelle four nights a week (sewing most of the costumes himself ), and whether it’s a Prince tribute or a Rocky Horror Picture Show sing-along, Darcelle’s platform heels have hardly slowed a step. So, just how long will the show go on? “When I can’t do what I do, I’ll let someone else take my spot,” says Cole. “But right now, they don’t dare.”

OUTDOORS High Points

These city hikes deliver in-town wilderness and outstanding views. BY BRIAN BARKER

M

ount Hood has inspired countless climbers and hikers over the years. But you don’t have to trek to the mountain to reach a lofty summit. Here are some high-climbing treks that deliver bite-size adventures and stellar views inside city limits. For a boot-powered excursion to Portland’s highest point, head to Marquam Nature Park (S.W. Marquam St. & Sam Jackson Park Rd.; portlandparks.org). Tucked away at the base of a treelined ravine, this 178-acre (72 hectare) green space offers 7 miles (11 km) of trails surrounded by dense foliage. These trails lead to Council Crest Park, which tops out at 1,073 feet (327 m) and provides dazzling mountain and city views. On the city’s east side, Mt. Tabor Park (S.E. 60th Ave. & Salmon St.; portlandparks.org) reigns supreme at 630 feet (192 m). A series of self-guided nature walks circle this extinct volcano, leading to historic reservoirs, towering trees and a

panoramic view of downtown high rises backed by the rugged West Hills — great for sunsets. Farther east, Powell Butte Nature Park (16160 S.E. Powell Blvd.; 503.823.7529; portlandparks.org) rises just over 600 feet (182 m) and is filled with 611 acres (247 ha) and 8 miles (13 km) of trails for hiking, mountain biking and horse riding. The paved Mountain View Trail stretches just shy of 1 mile (1.6 km) to the top of the butte, where a mountain viewfinder helps identify a series of cascade peaks, including Mount Hood, Mount Adams and Mount St. Helens. For one last frame-worthy shot of town, follow the Wildwood Trail to Portland’s historic Pittock Mansion (3229 N.W. Pittock Dr.; 503.823.3623; pittockmansion.org) via the Lower Macleay Trail. This heart-pumping endeavor climbs 800 feet (243.8 m) in 2.5 miles (4 km), ending with an unforgettable vista of the Portland skyline set against the backdrop of Mount Hood.

n a city that incubated the Decemberists, Esperanza Spalding, Elliott Smith and Portugal. The Man, to name just a few, it’s only natural that families crave top-notch tunes for budding concertgoers. Whether it’s silly and soulful folk-rock or bounce-inducing British invasion-y power pop, parents can find kid-focused musicians beloved by children and adults (yes, really) nearly any day of the week in Portland. North Portland’s cozy Mississippi Pizza (3552 N. Mississippi Ave.; 503.288.3231; mississippipizza.com) has been a go-to destination for kid-focused live music since 2001. Munch on pies and pints (Gluten-free versions available!), while the kiddos boogie. Four-plus weekly shows feature longtime regulars like Red Yarn, a performer who

pairs foot-stomping folk-rock ditties with instrumentstrumming puppets, and Mo Phillips, who intersperses original rock-n-blues riffs about ninjas and ducks with interactive sing-along jingles. Other draws include Mr. Ben (folk-rock), the Alphabeticians (comedy-rock) and Tallulah’s Daddy (energetic, interactive acoustic). Across town, Know Thy Food (3434 S.E. Milwaukie Ave.; 503.206.5766; knowthyfood.coop) offers a healthy-leaning menu and frequent shows with the likes of the Pointed Man Band (a kids’ David Byrne) and the Rock N’ Roll Fairy (rock tunes with a positive self-awareness message). Tip: Look for more gigs at the Portland Children’s Museum (portlandcm.org), which hosts Sunday evening performances in a renovated theater space.

During the 45-minute, ticketed tour, kids can kick back on a tiny bunk, spy the Willamette River through a periscope, push buttons in the control room and even touch a torpedo. Housed in Portland Police Bureau headquarters, the free Portland Police Museum (111 S.W. Second Ave.; 503.823.0019; portlandpolicemuseum.com) sits inside a real (but defunct) jail and features vintage uniforms, bad guys’ fingerprints and a vintage motorcycle, complete with sidecar. Scope out

antique badges on display, then surprise your kids with one of their own! (Replicas are for sale in the gift shop.) At the century-old Historic Belmont Firehouse (900 S.E. 35th Ave.; 503.823.3615; friendsofportlandfire.org), children can check out a steam-powered fire wagon, sit in a real fire truck and listen to 911 calls on an antique rotary phone. Drop in on Wednesdays or the second Saturday of the month, or schedule a private tour. For a true flight of fancy, head one hour southwest of downtown Portland to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum (500 N.E. Captain Michael King Smith Way, McMinnville; 503.434.4185; evergreenmuseum. org), home to the legendary Spruce Goose, as well as several space rover replicas and an arctic rescue helicopter. Your own tiny aviator can climb into the cockpits of a B-17 and a helicopter, and experience a virtual rocket launch in the museum’s simulator, complete with shaking walls.

The Fields Park Set in the north end of the Pearl District (with easy Portland Streetcar access), this urban gem satisfies the need to run, with a play structure that riffs off the nearby Fremont Bridge.

n Portland, one of the easiest ways to make a night out of downtown dining also happens to be one of the most delicious. How else to explain a slew of hot hotel restaurant openings in the city core that woo hotel patrons and destination diners alike? For casual-but-chic eats, drop into The Crown (410 S.W. Broadway; 503.228.7222; thecrownpdx.com), Chef Vitaly Paley’s pizza/bar joint in Hotel Lucia. Every slice comes expertly charred and bubbly, but don’t miss signature pies, such as the Imperial (fried chicken, pickles, honey and hot sauce) and Meat Your Maker, loaded with fennel sausage, pepperoni and wood-roasted peppers. The modern Mexican fare at Alto Bajo (310 S.W. Stark St.; 971.222.2111; altobajopdx.com), in the slick Hi-Lo Hotel, transports your taste buds south — and north.

Dishes fuse classic Oaxacan cuisine (think roasted, rich, layered) with Northwest ingredients for hybrid masterpieces, such as Pacific salmon with poblano sauce and braised duck tacos. Headwaters (1001 S.W. Broadway; 503.790.7752; headwaterspdx.com) at The Heathman Hotel dishes up super-fresh seafood fare with upscale French flair. Seared diver scallops are perfectly crisped, and the briny oysters go down as smoothly as the wine list. Meat lovers: Don’t miss the neo-American fare at Jackrabbit (830 S.W. Sixth Ave.; 503.412.1800; gojackrabbitgo.com) in the Duniway Hotel. Celebrity chef/ owner Chris Cosentino’s mantra of simplicity and craft is evident throughout the offal-centric menu, and a warm, wooded space encourages repeat visits.

TO TRY Dig into the city’s food cart scene at these popular “pods.”

Alder Pod The largest of the city’s food cart hubs, this veritable sidewalk buffet encompasses an entire block. Look for longtime favorites like Whole Bowl, serving heaping veggie bowls, and Nong’s Khao Man Gai with its acclaimed garlic- and ginger-infused chicken and rice and dipping sauce. S.W. Alder St. & 10th Ave.

TRAVELPORTLAND.COM

Cartlandia This “super pod” in Southeast Portland is home to the Blue Room, a full-service bar with 18 beers and ciders on tap, and a family- and dogfriendly outdoor beer garden. More than 30 carts represent 15 different countries, including a Voodoo Doughnut mobile van and three carts serving lobster. S.E. Harney St. & S.E. 82nd Ave.

94

Prost Marketplace Set on shop-adorned North Mississippi Avenue, the choices here include stalwart vegan favorite Native Bowl, along with super-fresh sushi burritos at Teppanyaki Hut and tasty gluten-free Indian offerings from DesiPDX. N. Mississippi Ave. & Skidmore St. Fifth Avenue Another downtown mainstay, this long-running spot sits just off the MAX line and is known for its selection of Indian and Thai offerings. Don’t miss the Asian fusion tacos at Korean Twist. S.W. Stark St. & Fifth Ave. — B.B.

LANGBAAN

Worth the Wait

Plan in advance to snag a meal at these in-demand locales. BY DANIELLE CENTONI

M

aybe Anthony Bourdain didn’t need to call ahead, but for a few soughtafter spots around town, making a reservation well in advance is the only way to go. Here are three Portland restaurants worth planning a trip around. HOLDFAST

This intimate Central Eastside spot is a two-man show. From behind the wrap-around counter, chefs Will Priesch and Joel Stocks cook, plate, serve and clear every one of their highly seasonal and intricately prepared courses. The effect is a down-to-earth and totally accessible spin on modernist cuisine, built on ingredients the chefs often forage or grow themselves. It’s open Friday through Sunday, with just one seating per night. (Inside tip: A no-reservation cocktail service with small bites goes down on Mondays.) 2133 S.E. 11th Ave.; 503.504.9448; holdfastdining.com

LANGBAAN

It can take months to score a seat at Chef Earl Ninsom’s secret hideaway inside bustling casual Thai

restaurant Paadee (the name Langbaan translates to “backroom”), but your diligence is rewarded with a multicourse feast of elegant dishes bursting with complex herbal flavors. The monthly rotating menu ranges from contemporary takes on Bangkok’s cuisine to haute dishes once served to Thai royalty. Seatings are twice a night, Thursday through Sunday. 6 S.E. 28th Ave.; 971.344.2564; langbaanpdx.com

NODOGURO

At this tiny spot, chef/owner Ryan Roadhouse gives the traditional Japanese kaiseki dinner a quietly quirky spin. The 13-course menus are often based on themes inspired by pop culture, from Twin Peaks to McDonald’s. Roadhouse, who trained with sushi masters, partners with a local farmer to grow obscure Japanese produce, like benitade, or water peppers. For his 21-course “Supahardcore” sushi extravaganzas, he often flies in seafood straight from the Tsukiji and Fukuoka fish markets. Reservations are unleashed once a month, but if you miss out, you can stalk the website for last-minute cancellations. 2832 S.E. Belmont St.; nodoguropdx.com

P H OTO G R A P H B Y A U B R I E L E G A U LT

Cartopia This Southeast Hawthorne destination stays open late with carts like Potato Champion dishing up crispy, twice-fried Belgian-style fries and gravy-doused poutine, while Chicken and Guns heats up the night with its wood-fired Latin chicken, served with crispy, sea-salted potatoes and an addictive Peruvian sauce made of cilantro, jalapeños and sour cream. 1207 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.


P H OTO G R A P H B Y D I N A AV I L A

Luc Lac Open until 4 a.m. on weekends, this late-night stalwart offers belly-warming pho alongside papaya salads, crispy veggie rolls and other Vietnamese favorites. 835 S.W. Second Ave.; 503.222.0047; luclackitchen.com Departure Admire the lights of the Portland cityscape while snacking on maki rolls and spicy tuna bowls till midnight (1 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays) at this eatery atop downtown’s Nines Hotel. 525 S.W. Morrison St.; 503.802.5370; departureportland.com

NORANEKO

ALL-NIGHTERS Eat well in the wee hours at these late-night restaurants.

Revelry DJs keep energy crackling at this Korean snack spot that serves up jackfruit kimchi pancakes and mochi doughnuts until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. 210 S.E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.; 971.339.3693; relayrestaurantgroup.com /restaurants/revelry

Robo Taco Head to this spot before the clock strikes midnight (1 a.m on weekends) to order mountains of “supernachos” and corn tortillas piled with fried Oregon oysters or spicy soy curl pastor. 607 S.E. Morrison St.; 503.232.3707; robotacopdx.com

Noraneko Slurp flavorful bowls brimming with handmade noodles at this hip ramen shack. Pan-fried pork dumplings and Japanese-style fried chicken are served until 2 a.m. 1430 S.E.Water Ave.; 503.238.6356; noranekoramen.com — M.W.
