NOTEBOOK PINE STREET MARKET

Old Town’s new Pine Street Market brings top restauranteurs together under one roof. BY BENJAMIN TEPLER

ortland may not invent every foodie trend — but we do tend to perfect them. Take the newly opened Pine Street Market (126 S.W. Second St.; pinestreetpdx.com), for example. Set in Old Town, downtown’s oldest quarter, this chef-driven emporium is Portland’s answer to the kind of modern “food halls” that have drawn gastronomic raves in New York City, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. Among the nine tenants inside, you can delight in a new soft-serve ice cream venture from Salt & Straw (called Wiz Bang Bar), savor Olympia Provisions’ foot-long, artisan hot dogs and sip meticulously roasted coffee from Barista’s Brass Bar. Diners can also sample Spanish rotisserie chicken at Pollo Bravo, from the owners of

Tasty n Sons and Toro Bravo, or beef tongue banh mi at Common Law, the Euro-Asian mashup from former Paley’s Place chef Patrick McKee and Earl Ninsom of acclaimed Thai eatery Langbaan. Pine Street’s culinary curator (yes, that’s a real job in Portland), Mike Thelin, who co-founded the city’s popular Feast Portland festival, has also wooed farflung talent, including legendary Tokyo-based ramen shop Marukin. It all adds up to what feels like a kind of permanent food festival. Even better: It’s good for the city. “Pine Street marks the beginning of a total reimagining for the most iconic and historic heart of Portland,” says Thelin. That makes Pine Street’s story all the more delicious.

A new bike-share system will make it even easier to see the city on two wheels.

TRAVELPORTLAND.COM

Getting around Portland like a local is going to be much easier starting in late July 2016, thanks to a new bike-share program known as Biketown (biketownpdx.com). Biketown’s 1,000 bright orange, eight-speed bikes will be equipped with integrated baskets, front and rear lights and reflective paint jobs. They’ll also carry communications, payment and locking technology, making them easy to find, reserve, park and ride throughout the central city. For a small fee (an average of $2.50 for 30 minutes of use), riders can check out bikes at one of 20 kiosks or via the Biketown website or free smartphone app. When you’re done riding, you can park the bike at any bike rack in the service area, or return it to one of the system’s 100 stations and receive a credit. The Biketown program, funded by local shoe and sportswear giant Nike, will be managed by Motivate, which operates many of the world’s largest bike-share systems, including those in the Bay Area, New York, Chicago, Toronto and Melbourne. — Karen Martwick

ASK A LOCAL

INSIDE DISH The best way to tour any town? Talk to a local. Here we share tips from three Portland residents on how to have the perfect day in their favorite city. BY EDEN DAWN

Portland crushes hard on its beloved Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise, the Timbers. Legions of diehards (known as the “Timbers Army”) pack the stands singing and chanting and making home games a hoot. And why not? The Timbers are the best in the league, capturing their first-ever championship in 2015.

“My wife and I are both big fans of sushi, so many date nights start at Bamboo Sushi.”

Best place to go after a game and celebrate? Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) (2944 S.E. Powell Blvd.; 503.232.4677; hop worksbeer.com) is our go-to spot after day games. They have a ton of things to keep the kids busy while the adults are able to enjoy some good food and beer.

TRAVELPORTLAND.COM

Midfielder Jack Jewsbury, one of only five players to have been on the team since its inaugural 2011 MLS season, talks about his favorite spots in his adopted city.

22

What’s your favorite local watering hole? When catching a game I will usually head to Thirsty Lion (S.W. Second & Ash; 503.222.2155; thirsty liongastropub.com). Always has a good atmosphere, great selection of beers on tap and I am a huge fan of the fish tacos! Best place for outdoor activities? With two young girls, we seem to always find ourselves at different parks around town. Our favorite during the summer is George Rogers Park (611 S. State St.; Lake Oswego; ci.oswego.or.us) They have a new playground area for the little ones, and you can also head down to what our kids call the “beach” and let them play in the river.

Favorite local spot for new workout gear? Since I am sponsored by Nike (638 S.W. Fifth Ave.; 503.221.6453; nike. com), that is where I get all my workout gear — but even more importantly, all my golf gear!

HOPWORKS URBAN BREWERY

Best place in town for a date night? My wife and I are both big fans of sushi, so many date nights start at Bamboo Sushi (multiple locations; bamboosushi.com). Typically, we have a few Green Machine rolls and then head to Salt & Straw (multiple locations; saltandstraw.com). I always sample a new flavor, but usually stick to my standard half-snickerdoodle and halfalmond brittle. Your favorite place in the area right now? Even though it isn’t open yet, as an avid golfer I am super excited for Topgolf (N.W. Brookwood & U.S. Highway 26; topgolf.com; opening summer 2016). From what I have heard, it’s like mixing bowling and darts, but for golf! Should be a fun new spot whether you are a golfer or not.

GREGORY GOURDET

Self-taught clothing designer Michelle Lesniak took the Project Runway crown in season 11, catapulting her to the upper echelon of Portland’s fashion scene. Lesniak churns out two collections a year from her Southeast Portland studio and shows her designs worldwide. Here are her picks for fashion-loving visitors.

When Top Chef finalist, Portland style icon, ultrarunner and healthy eating advocate Gregory Gourdet isn’t cooking up some of the city’s hottest pan-Asian dishes at penthouse restaurant Departure, he’s out living the ultimate Portland lifestyle. Here, he lets us in on his favorite places around town.

Favorite local place to shop? My go-to area is Hawthorne. I park at one end, lollygag up one side and then cross and do the other. Altar (3279 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.; 503.236.6120; altarpdx.com) is a favorite local spot to find in-house-designed clothing, local bad-ass jewelry and alternative-chic perfume.

First place you take out-oftowners? Pok Pok (multiple locations; pokpokpdx.com)! They’ve got the best wings in the world, and it really tells the story of finding your niche and making it in Portland. Chef Andy Ricker is one of our culinary greats — he followed a passion and now we all benefit.

What other local designer would you let dress you? Alexa Stark (alexastark. com). Holy cow. She has a take on classic silhouettes that you can’t find anywhere else, which also translates to many body types and ages. Where do you go for accessories? I am a jewelry freak and I get lots of my local designer baubles at Rock & Rose (616 E. Burnside St.; 503.239.3901; rockand rosepdx.com) — plus, they carry Wolf-Child T-shirts, which I cannot live without.

Best place to get the “Portland” look? Mike Templeton of Manly & Sons Barber Co. (4224 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.; 503.235.0283; manlyandsons. com) is the man for those sharp and classic, modern cuts.

kure juice “I love the juices, protein shakes and fruit bowls at Kure Juice Bar. Delicious blends of organic fruits and vegetables make for the best recharge.”

Your must-visit farmers’ market? The Portland Farmers Market (portland farmersmarket.org; Saturdays) at Portland State University is the go-to. It’s the biggest concentration of farmers and makers — and there’s tons of great food to eat right there!

P H OTO G R A P H S B Y A M Y O U E L E T T E

Favorite spot in town to people-watch? Pioneer Courthouse Square (701 SW Sixth Ave.; 503.223.1613; thesquarepdx. org), the heart of downtown. I like to park myself on the square with a snack and some brilliant locally roasted coffee and let the television show of style march by.

Favorite place to indulge in something sweet? I love the coconut milk ice cream shakes and ice cream in gluten-free cones at Back to Eden (2217 N.E. Alberta St.; 503.477.5022; backtoeden bakery.com). Where do you take visitors for a drop-in workout? The short, high-intensity team workouts at Crossfit Portland (418 N.E. Eighth Ave.; 503.939.4839; crossfit portland.com) kick my butt every time. The classes at I am Yoga (1301 N.E. Alberta St.; 503.280.9642; iamyoga portland.com) are great and therapeutic for anyone.

Where do you go to put together a costume? Nonprofit creative reuse store SCRAP (1736 S.W. Alder St.; 503.294.0769; scrappdx. org). Where else can one find enough oddities that would have ended up in a landfill to turn into a 10-foot, 100-eyeballed creature? What’s the one thing a fashion lover must do in Portland? Find the local designers. Each area of PDX has boutiques filled with locally made, locally designed fashion. Pick a neighborhood and spend the day finding your Portland style.

CROSSFIT PORTLAND

What about a post-workout snack? I love the juices, protein shakes and fruit bowls at Kure Juice Bar (multiple locations; kurejuicebar.com). Delicious blends of organic fruits and vegetables make for the best recharge. —Allison Jones

If you’re visiting Portland, you’ve probably already seen these doughnut makers’ iconic neon pink boxes being toted around the airport terminal. They’re the ones with the famous bacon maple bar that’s all but conquered the world (locations have sprouted up in Eugene, Denver, Austin and Taipei). Insider tip: While the original Old Town location, opened in 2003, inspires lines that wrap around the block, Voodoo has a second location with almost no wait, just across the river. Both are open 24 hours a day. 22 S.W. Third Ave., 503.241.4704; 1501 N. Davis St., 503.235.2666; voodoodoughnut.com

Don’t miss the signature Cointreau Crème Brûlée, with a crunchy torched top, a custardy vanilla filling and a vial of Cointreau slowly emptying into the center.

Portland food cart legend and Chopped star Nong Poonsukwattana is known for a single dish: Thai-style chicken and rice simmered with great hunks of galangal root, ginger and a cilantro bouquet and served with her addictive, nose-tingling sauce. In recent years, Nong’s has added a few dishes (and locations, including a brickand-mortar) to the one-hit-wonder, from Coca Colabraised pork to lemongrass soft-serve, but the original is still king.

Discover fun for all ages on the slopes of Oregon’s highest peak — and beyond.

BY CHRISTOPHER VAN TILBURG

Miles of scenic hiking trails fan out from the Alpine village of Government Camp. Try the 2-mile (3.2 km) Trillium Lake Loop Trail, complete with plenty of chances for a refreshing dip. For a longer trek, circumnavigate Timothy Lake through 12 miles (19 km) of thick Douglas fir forests. Mountain bikers ride the world-class mountain bike track of the Sandy Ridge Trail System (62700 E. Barlow Trail Rd., Sandy; 503.375.5646; blm.gov/or), offering banked downhill tracks and sections for every skill level.

winter: Mt. Hood Meadows

Oregon’s largest ski resort, Mt. Hood Meadows (14040 Hwy. 35; 503.337.2222; skihood.com) lies less than two hours from Portland, and is known for prodigious mid-winter powder (up to 430 inches [10.9 m] pile up here annually) and 85 named runs, many of which last through the spring. Features like a “magic carpet” and “fun zone” cater to beginners, while seasoned riders seek out the legendary superpipe or untracked, expert-level slopes in Private Reserve and Heather Canyon.

MOUNT HOOD RAILROAD

Mt. Hood Skibowl (87000 U.S. 26, Government Camp; 503.272.3206; skibowl. com) claims the largest night skiing and snowboarding area in the U.S. — nearly 1,000 acres (405 ha) worth — and it’s the shortest drive from Portland. Cosmic tubing heats up winter nights. Summer is equally enticing with zip lines, an alpine slide, a rock-climbing wall and a Tree Top Action Zone outfitted with rope swings and other aerial obstacles.

YEAR-ROUND: Mount Hood Railroad

Following a historic lumber route, the Mount Hood Railroad (110 Railroad Ave., Hood River; 541.386.3556; mthoodrr.com) offers a three-hour scenic tour through the farms and orchards of the Hood River Valley. For an added kick, check out the Western Train Robbery entertainment troupe, Polar Express holiday ride or Timber Baron Dinner Train, featuring a menu inspired by area farmers.

Skibowl’s summer activities include zip lines, an alpine slide, a rock-climbing wall and a Tree Top Action Zone with rope swings.

omic books aren’t just for kids. And in Portland, they’re serious business. All told, the city is home to three comic publishers, two national conventions — Rose City Comic Con (September) and Wizard World (February) — and hundreds of working illustrators and writers. No wonder Portland State University (PSU) launched a Comic Studies program in 2015. The story began in 1986 when a PSU art major named Mike Richardson spun his local comic shop, now known as Things From Another World (three locations; tfaw.com) into a publishing venture, Dark Horse Comics. His thenrevolutionary approach ensured writers and illustrators kept ownership of their work, making him a beacon for the industry. Now, Richardson’s empire is the third largest in the country, boasting a catalog of star franchises like Hellboy and Star Wars. In 1997, independent publishers Oni Press (of Scott Pilgrim fame) and Sparkplug Books opened here. Talent followed. Today, several industry titans call Portland home: Brian Michael Bendis (who’s worked on Marvel

franchises like Spiderman and the Avengers), Matt Fraction (Iron Man, X-Men) and Fraction’s wife, Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain Marvel, Captain America), among many others. Graphic journalist Joe Sacco, whose Palestine won the 1996 American Book Award, is also a longtime Portlander. Visitors can access this ever-expanding universe at a network of local comic shops. Opened in 1974, Excalibur Books and Comics (2444 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.; 503.231.7351; excaliburcomics.net) is one of the city’s oldest and largest purveyors, stocking both hot-ticket bestsellers and rare collectibles. Floating World Comics (400 N.W. Couch St.; 503.241.0227; floatingworldcomics.com) features artist talks, exhibitions and an amazing selection of graphic novels. Bridge City Comics (3725 N. Mississippi Ave.; 503.282.5484; bridgecitycomics.com) has an entire section for Portland-based artists. Comic fans unite! Editor’s note: Don’t miss the “Comic City, USA” exhibit at the Oregon Historical Society (1200 S.W. Park Ave.; 503.222.1741; ohs.org) Aug. 12, 2016–Jan. 31, 2017.

very day is Record Store Day in Portland, where indie bands rule the airwaves and mom-and-pop vinyl shops still line neighborhood streets. From vintage wax to new European imports, those rare releases you’ve been searching for are surely waiting at one the city’s collection of rockin’ record stores. Portland’s oldest music store, Music Millennium (3158 E. Burnside St.; 503.862.8826; musicmillennium.com), opened in 1969 with a mission to stock underground tunes absent from the racks of mainstream department stores of the era. To the delight of audiophiles, not much has changed. Multiple rooms stash untold treasures, from bargain bins of used CDs and vinyl to collector rarities — a first pressing of Led Zeppelin I recently sold for $1,000. Looking for live music? Touring bands often drop by the shop for free shows. For a vinyl version of Powell’s City of Books, check out Everyday Music (1313 W. Burnside St., 503.274.0961; 1931 N.E. Sandy Blvd., 503.239.7610; everydaymusic.com). The mammoth downtown mainstay keeps its vast vinyl collection

impeccably sorted and neatly labeled, saving customers the time they’d usually spend digging through jumbled boxes to find groovy tunes. A second location in Northeast Portland boasts an even larger selection. Crossroads Music (3130 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.; 503.232.1767; xro.com) works like a melodic consignment shop, divvying up the catalogues of more than 35 individual record collectors. The deep well of musical tastes results in an impressive selection of quality vinyl inside this Hawthorne landmark. In North Portland, Mississippi Records (5202 N. Albina Ave.; 503.282.2990; no website) ranks among the top 10 shops in the nation, according to USA Today. Owner Eric Isaacson maintains a meticulously curated assemblage of rare releases. Finds include old-timey gospel, blues, folk and pre-Beatles rock, as well as contemporary albums released under the shop’s namesake record label. Not in Portland? Keep the local beat with the shop’s online distributor, Little Axe Records (littleaxerecords.com).

t. Tabor (S.E. 60th & Salmon St.; portlandparks.org) is the quintessential Portland park: 191 acres (77.3 ha) of towering Douglas firs, sweeping mountain views in the distance. Of Portland’s 200-plus parks, Tabor is the ultimate crowd-pleaser, providing a tree-lined escape, easily accessed from dining and shopping hubs like Hawthorne, Belmont and Division Streets. The “mount” is a 630-foot (192 m) extinct volcanic cinder cone, part of east Portland’s Boring Lava Fields. That imposing height translates to an athlete’s paradise; staircases offer 282 calf-chiseling steps, roads provide steep climbs and rapid descents for cyclists, and miles of trails are perfect for hiking and running. For the team-sport crowd, Tabor boasts tennis and basketball courts, scattered around the butte’s historic, open-air reservoirs.

From the summit, enjoy picture-perfect views of Mount Hood framed by firs and Oregon myrtle to the east and sweeping views of Hawthorne and downtown Portland to the west — the ultimate perch for late-summer sunsets. Families flock to the large playground with views of Mount St. Helens. On the south side of Tabor, an off-leash dog park is a heyday for pooches. During the summer, free concerts, from blues to Latin pop, abound at Mt. Tabor’s amphitheater, while a full aviary of migratory birds sings a different tune from the trees above. In August, the park hosts the iconic PDX Adult Soap Box Derby (soapboxracer.com; Aug. 20, 2016), a beloved free event with up to 40 whimsical DIY coaster cars racing down the mountain while spectators cheer them on from the sidelines (and the event-specific beer garden). Only in Portland.

et amid the forested hills of Washington Park, the Oregon Zoo (4001 S.W. Canyon Rd; 503.226.1561; oregonzoo.org) feels like a slice of the Northwest woods. Within the zoo, animal habitats mimic indigenous natural settings, and with recent major expansions, Portland’s largest residents have never felt more at home. Elephants Lands, the zoo’s new $57 million dollar expansion, opened in December 2015. The grounds feature expanses of deep, foot-friendly sand, timber piles and a 160,000-gallon (605,666 L) pool for aquatic frolicking. Other amenities are meant to recreate life in the wild: Time-release feeders dispersed around the interactive habitat encourage a sense of foraging for food, while mud wallows allow the creatures to cool off on hot days and help protect their skin from harmful UV rays (yes, even

elephants can get sunburned). The herd can also bask in the sunlit Forest Hall, one of the largest indoor elephant facilities in the world. A new elevated plaza lets visitors unobtrusively observe all the playful pachyderm action. Meanwhile, the zoo’s California condors are still settling into their new digs. In summer 2014, the critically endangered species spread their massive 10-foot (3 m) wings in an aviary outfitted with streams, pools, boulders and tree snags. Covered viewing posts let bird lovers get up close to these gargantuan residents. Not to be outdone, the zoo’s apex predators, the polar bears, are also scheduled to get a new home in 2019. To meet the needs of the world’s biggest carnivorous land hunter, the zoo is adding icy pools and elevated areas which allow the bears to keep watch over their territory, just as do as they do in the wild.

ou may not think of Portland as a beach town, but our rivers provide lots of lounging and swimming options. In particular, two gorgeous Columbia River beaches, each with officially sanctioned clothing-optional sections, are popular LGBTQ destinations come summertime. Situated on Sauvie Island, a 12,000-acre (4,856 ha) parcel of farms and nature preserves just 25 miles (40 km) north of downtown, secluded Collins Beach (38149 N.W. Reeder Rd.; sauvieisland.org) has been a favorite of bare-as-youdare beachgoers — both gay and straight — for decades. The gently sloped beach stretches for about 1 mile (1.6 km) and is dog-friendly. If arriving by car, pick up a permit at the general store just beyond the bridge onto the island ($10 for the day or $30 for an annual pass). Arriving by bike is free

and this flat island, dotted with berry and pumpkin farms, is a cycling paradise. Rooster Rock State Park (Interstate 84, exit 25, Corbett; 503.695.2261; oregonstateparks.org; parking fee $5 daily), which lies about 25 miles (40 km) east of Portland in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, offers easy hikes, disc golf courses and 3 miles (4.8 km) of direct river access. From the parking area, turn right (east) to reach the well-signed clothing-optional section. By mid-summer, water levels are usually low enough to wade across a narrow channel to forested Sand Island, where the dunes are especially popular with LGBTQ visitors. Many fans of Rooster Rock stop here for a late-afternoon swim, capping off a day of hiking popular spots like Angel’s Rest and Multnomah Falls.

ome of Portland’s biggest dining destinations come in small packages. In recent years, the city’s forwardthinking developers have been experimenting with the “microrestaurant,” a concept that lets small dining ventures share kitchen and eating space. For restaurateurs, it’s a way to conserve resources; for diners, it’s an excuse to enjoy multiple cuisines in one sitting. The Ocean (2329 N.E. Glisan St.) is Portland’s original microrestaurant hub, housing five eateries. Sample fresh tacos at Uno Mas Taquiza or vegan-Indian bar bites at the Sudra, sidle up to the open fire pit with a gruyere- and onion-ring-topped patty from Slowburger, or tackle a meatball hero from 24th & Meatballs under a covered outdoor dining area.

A few blocks up, The Zipper (2705 N.E. Sandy Blvd.) features four restaurants, a coffee shop and a bar set around a large communal dining hall. Order up freshly fried falafel at Chickpeadx, then peruse a menu of more than 100 whiskeys at lively watering hole Paydirt. For Latin American bites, head to Portland Mercado (7238 S.E. Foster Rd.; portlandmercado.org), a marketplace with 7,000 square feet (650 sq m) of authentic street food and south-of-the-border shopping. (Each business is Latinoowned.) The Mercado’s outdoor area features an eight-cart lineup, with offerings from El Salvadoran cheese pupusas to standout pork Cubano sandwiches. Inside, you’ll discover a Latin American grocery, a Mexican candy shop and a bar with local cerveza and wine.

GETTING AROUND Portland’s MAX Light Rail System (trimet.org/max) connects Portland International Airport (PDX), downtown hotels and the Oregon Convention Center, as well as popular destinations like the Moda Center, Lloyd Center shopping mall and Washington Park. HOW TO RIDE MAX A two-hour pass is $2.50 for adults* and is good on all MAX trains, TriMet buses and the Portland Streetcar. The airport MAX station and ticket machines are located on the lower level, next to the south baggage claim area (turn right at the bottom of the escalator). Hours and frequency vary, but all MAX lines run about every 15 minutes most of the day, every day. The airport line runs from roughly 5 a.m. to midnight daily. You must purchase your ticket before boarding MAX. You can buy it at the station or pay your fare with the TriMet Tickets mobile app. Tickets and maps are available at the TriMet office in downtown’s Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Via the Portland Streetcar (portlandstreetcar.org), you can easily travel between downtown, the Pearl District and Northwest Portland, as well as the Central Eastside. Twohour tickets can be purchased for $1* onboard any streetcar; MAX tickets are also good for the streetcar and buses. The best way to catch a taxi downtown is to go to a hotel with a dedicated taxi stand, or ask a hotel or restaurant employee to call you a cab. At Portland International Airport, cabs are available on the lower level outside of baggage claim. The average fare to downtown is approximately $40*. *Fares subject to change.

When you’re downtown, keep an eye out for Sidewalk Ambassadors (cleanandsafepdx.com), who travel the streets on foot and bike, ready to help visitors with everything from using public transit to choosing a restaurant. The team also distributes maps and brochures at mobile kiosks, usually near Pioneer Courthouse Square. You’ll find these mobile concierges, clad in green shirts and jackets, on the streets Tues.–Sat., 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
