The Bagdad Theater shows occasionally awesome second-run movies. It's worth admission price just to see the Middle-Eastern themed interior but there's more. You can get some pizza and even a beer and every other row has been removed to allow for tables and plenty of leg room. So you never have to worry about some annoying sociopath kicking the back of your chair through your screening of Harold and Kumar. The connected pub offers all the other McMenamins amenities and promises entertaining people-watching on busy Hawthorne Boulevard.
Rockin’ downtown music venue with an eclectic clientele (read: bike messengers). Great place for people watching. The Ash Street serves a mean drink but deep fried appetizers, burgers, and sandwiches will soak up that booze for you.
This new pizza joint strives to live up to it's name by being a real good neighbor. In order to accomplish this goal they do things like: using all homemade, local and organic ingredients -from grain to cheese, using all biodegradable to-go containers, becoming sustainable by using solar energy, disconnecting their drain spouts and giving you a discount if you pick up your pizza on foot. All very cool but the most obvious way they are showing their good-neighborliness is by supplying good pizza, sandwiches, salads and live entertainment to this outer Northeast neighborhood. I almost forgot to mention, local beers and wines are featured as well as a full bar!
Fire on the Mountain is the cream of the crop when it comes to chicken wing cuisine. This little fry house has the freshest wings around, and over ten different homemade sauces to slather them in. Don't fear bringing your veggie friends here: "Portland Wings," AKA vegetarian "chicken" wings, or the "Vegeterranean" sandwich will fill them up. And if you happen to have a hankering for some old-fashioned sweet tea or state-fair-inspired deep-fried pickles or Twinkies, this would be your place.
