Feature
Is our "Craft Beer Issue" just an embarrassingly lazy excuse for the Mercury's writers to get very drunk? The answer may surprise you! (It won't.)

Things to Do
From dirt-track motorcycle races to a pop-up market of Black-owned businesses, we've got your next two weeks planned out. You're welcome!


Music
Ah, yes, an article about Sinead O'Connor. The Portland Mercury: Always on the bleeding edge of popular culture.

Arts & Performance
What will cause the long-awaited downfall of the patriarchy? SLUMBER PARTIES.

Food & Drink

Movies & TV
Star Trek: Picard: As thrilling as Worf's bat'leth competition. As comforting as Riker's beard.

Savage Love

Cannabis
