Forewarning


The Idea of Progress will be in Portland, Oregon for the week following Christmas. Posts may be either non-existent or irregular (not in the bowel sense). I've never been to Portland before. Here's what I expect:

-Hippies

-Beer

-Pinot Noir

-Hippies

-Environmentalists

-Hipsters

-Lots of bikes

-Salmon

-Hippies

-Intoxication

Any suggestions from anyone as to where I should visit?

Kennedy School. Definitely.

I hate hippies! I mean, the way they always talk about "protectin' the earth" and then drive around in cars that get poor gas mileage and wear those stupid bracelets - I hate 'em! I wanna kick 'em in the nuts!

McMennamins! See what's playing there and have BEER. I don't know about the hippies, though. More like Hipsters. Salmon aren't running this time of year, so leave the waders at home and nix the fishing idea.

Why will you be in the rainy neck of the woods?

Oh, and what will you see? RAIN. RAIN RAIN RAIN and more RAIN!

I grew up about an hour away from Portland. Be prepared for the following: men in clogs; potent weed; rain turning to showers tapering off to a steady drizzle.

I like Powell's bookstore, a hotbed for hippies but they won't bother you if you sit real still.

I wish I had been paying closer attention, since *I* was in Portland over Christmas!

The weather sucked, no?
