And, as you may remember, I now have an even more compelling reason to visit Portland because a certain M.D. lives there! I have to check in to make sure they are letting him sleep at least 30 minutes for every 30 hour shift he works and that he isn't subsisting on granola bars and coffee. I also need to rectify a very urgent situation involving an eco-terrace (yeah,it's really just a patio) and a lack of appreciation for its intended use: boozing and container gardening.
So I'm off to Portland for an extended Labor Day Weekend. I intend to take care of the eco-terrace situation immediately upon arrival.
But what else should I do in Portland? I've scoured my favorite PDX-based blogs and websites so I have a handful of ideas, but I need more! What are your favorite restaurants, bars, shops, sights, etc.? Or if you haven't been there and are interested in a vicarious trip to a certain destination, let me know those places too.

UPDATE: So Hurricane Earl. Tough cookie, that one. Travelers have been advised to avoid Newark airport as there is a strong chance it will be a cesspool of delays and cancellations. Earl should be rolling through there later today. I'll give you one guess as to who has a connecting flight in Newawk later today. Cross your fingers, gang. If I had an iPhone, I'd live-blog my woes but luckily for you, I don't :) Leave me your Portland suggestions anyway, for good luck.
