This place is wonderful. 25 taps and most of the beer is from the Pacific northwest, the rest from either California or the east coast, and occasionally Europe. The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable, too.

Regardless of the people riding/driving by shouting at the the store, I have to ask, why do you work for a people who hate GLBT/queers if you say you support gay rights? I'm not being closed-minded, I'm being descriptively accurate. Remember Prop 8? Gordon Smith's son who committed suicide? "The New Normal" getting dropped by the Mormon-owned TV network Salt Lake City affiliate because it centered on a gay couple?
This list is great. The mason jar thing is obnoxious. There's a bar downtown doing this, I won't say who but its on 4th between Stark and Washington, that does this and charges $5 per jar. For a bland, low-ABV beer like Widmer's Hefeweizen (you shouldn't have to add a lemon to make it artificially tart, a hefeweizen is supposed to be like that inherently, but that's another topic) which is made a few miles away.
Ah yes, street kids who pretend they're homeless. A small handful are but the majority are from places like Boise, La Grande, Yakima, or even Portland suburbs, and are actually just couch-surfing with friends and getting stoned because they hate their parents, don't want to work, think the whole extra from "Road Warrior" look is cool and know Portlanders won't give them shit for it, or some combination thereof. They love harassing/assaulting food cart operators and local business employees (remember the 70-year old Portland Outdoor Store worker who was beaten last year?). And spoiler alert: If you can't take care of yourself, you shouldn't have a dog. These kids need to be put into a cannon shell ala "A Trip to the Moon" (1902) and shot into the sun. Slow curtain, the end.
*Copper. The Portlandia statue is hammered copper. It also needs to be moved to a new location and the Portland Building RAZED.
"What if it was a guy pursuing a guy? What then? What if?" Anyway, whether you like it or not, the general attractiveness of the perceived stalker needs to be factored into the discussion. People are superficial. Let's face it -- if the perceived stalker is a model type, they're a lot more likely to get a free pass, "Ah, that's sweet" vs. "Ew gross, what do they want?!"
"People like me also are TERRIFIED when summer hits. 5 feet 7 inches, 115 pounds, for a man? Tell me that is not MORE terrifying than being overweight and taking your shirt off!"..."Big guys (yes, even overweight ones) get the ladies, while people like me spend all their time alone. So just a heads up, I would gladly switch bodies with you anytime."
Oh cry me a fucking river. Is this a troll letter? It sounds like they're just messing with us. Anyway, if you're serious, come over to the gay community where skinny is worshiped almost as much as muscle mass. Its crazy (and kind of sad/odd).
Its been said before, and I'll say it again: Ann Romano is actually the pen name of several different people who contribute to this column and its condescending for the Mercury to continue to insist she's a real, singular person. I knew something was off when I discovered she had no twitter account -- how can you be a gossip columnist and not be on twitter? I'm not sure why the Mercury lies about this because let's admit it: One Day At a Time is our guilty pleasure in the paper.
