Actually the lunch I ate today was the best korean I've had in years, and *is* probably the best korean food in the PDX area. 15 dollars, 2 bento lunches (bulgogi and grilled chicken), totally adequate and not supersized portions, VERY tasty. Main bento with rice, meat of choice, potstickers, fried tofu. Side dishes as usual- kimchi, potatoes, broccoli. Took a while to get the food, I assume because it's not pre-prepared. Host/waiter man energetic and very friendly, gave us taste hints (mix your kimchi with the fried tofu) and others.
Go there for lunch, then walk by with a satisfied all-knowingness at the poor folks eating at "zagat-rated" Subway sandwiches next door.

After first, I didn't recognize that this was your own neighborhood, and I thought you were being a dickhole. But if it's your hood, shit, park there.
Suggestion: be smarter (than posting on IA) in dealing with crazy ass neighbors. And stop "living moderately sustainably", because that just fucking sucks.
Whose able to correctly use apostrophe's? NOT PORTLAND
Who's water has fluoride?
Who thinks a city with jobs is a good thing?
I definitely wouldn't call seattle "weird" unless an overwealthy, undersexed latte/audi-driving populace, spooked by periodic shootouts and knife murders, defines weirdness.
Professionally happier but lifestyle-tepid Seattle
troll, fake ass IA. fart sniffing is what happens on the 8 bus up marquam hill. not on the bikes.
also there are not enough bike lanes. actually there should be more completely-separate cycle tracks, to keep away from dumbfucks behind the wheel.
stop putting yourself at risk, take the bus. YOu may well be a "dickhead" for making people feel guilty when they run into you. Alternatively, you are lying.
If that's the best reason you can concoct for people not to employ a useful but unfashionable (?) device for rainy weather, you've demonstrated just how petty you old transplants are. In other words, just another trifling and self-obsessed complaint from a Portland "O.G". You're the type that deserves whatever 4 extra raindrops might land on your hoodie.
I would concur with Amanda Sledz and others who point out that this "research" is smug, poorly-referenced trash. Nothing is clarified here, no insights given. At least we know, as Mercury employee, that this author's heroic research jaunts weren't well-compensated.
In fact, I would agree this is plagiarism unless 2006 straight dope article author is the same person...
And "the cultural archetype of the well-off panhandler (along with the equally mythical welfare queen) has lodged itself in the popular imagination"-- who do you hang out with? I would guess that at least 80% of portlanders have moved beyond this stereotype sir...tilting at windmills, senor.
Why the Mercury takes on these issues in the presumed interest of furthering the conversation-- but does so in such a half-assed, uncritical, and poorly directed way-- is beyond me. This probably should have gone under I,Anonymous. Stick to your Hump festival, or whatever.
i moved, and don't miss these contrived events. other things I don't miss are people using the word "privilege" all the fucking time, and PDX know-it-alls who overgeneralize but only complain anonymously or with a passive smirk.
Chunty- them is some true colors yer showin; so glad you have it all figured out. i DO miss new seasons. sucked for price, but goddamn it, it was a good grocery store chain. few like it anywhere.
See you droolios on the other side.
