alimoran: Scientists at Columbia University have successfully synthesized the chemicals derived from the antioxidantal compound found in red wine (resveratrol) into mimicking polyphenol pills. This is great news for health nuts like me who can responsibly moderate their nutritional supplement intake, but get Cooter- Brown- fucked-up after a single bottle of MD 20/20. Word. Laughing my shit...

Here’s a great, and fairly gross, story we missed from the O yesterday. Some kid peed in our drinking water! Asshole! But pee isn’t so bad; these goofy survivalist guys on the Discovery Chanel or whatever drink it all time, for survival! They seem to like it. Then again, those guys are all fucking nuts. Anyway, the story addressed all of the actual gross shit that might fall in our...
Hopworks Bike Bar is having a cheap beer deal... →
ATTN DRUNKS: Famous local brewer Hopworks opened up their new fancy Bike Bar joint on N. Williams this week (maybe?), and tonight is their official opening/Pedalpalooza celebration/whatever, where they will dump whole pints of beer down your throat for just two bucks. So show up. Especially if you, like your editor, live in NoPo. REP YO HOOD, etc. See you there maybe!

Apparently the Foo Fighters call Diet Coke... →
Oh, those Foo Fighter guys are funny. According to The Smoking Gun, their concert rider is full of zingers! This includes mentions of “Cat Fancy magazine” and fucking “Grape Nuts.” They also call Diet Coke, “Portland champagne.” We have no idea why. Is this some kind of inside joke I missed out on? Is Diet Coke the official drink of Portland? I thought...

Many Portland vintage stores are awful.
Portland has a handful of really nice vintage shops. Avalon is one we like quite a bit; there are always gems hidden among the multiple racks of suits and jackets - like a madras seersucker jacket we found last night that was just a tick too big to be tailored to fit. But! Then there are the multiple millions of vintage shops in town that are just fucking awful and tasteless. We’re not...
Bocce league in Portland: It exists, is moderately... →
Earlier this week, we were bitching about not being able to find a bocce set in Portland. We still can’t, but for those who want to play in a bocce league, click the clicky above. It’s $325 per team. A little pricy, no? Still: game of kings. A better summer yard game has never been invented. Also: If anyone knows where to get a goddamn bocce set around these parts, hit us up.

DO NOT FUCKING FRUIT THE BEER ugh so gross.
Cyclist runs down Sam Adams, our mayor, for fun. →
According to Twitter or whatever, a bicyclist has literally destroyed Portland Mayor Sam Adams’ fancy Prius by crashing her bicycle into it, in what was maybe a terrorist plot? We guess; we don’t know. We didn’t actually read any, like, “news articles” about it. But hey: evil terrorist cyclist! What did Portland Mayor Sam Adams ever do to you, huh?

Hey everyone, the seamen are here! For you commuter folks, you’ll never cross another bridge in Portland, ever again. For those of you already downtown: try not to step in the vomit!

Oh dang. We’ve been out of town all week, but this is obviously major news. You yokels had already written off Stumptown as local sell-outs and the new Starbucks. Now that shit is way, way official. But oh well. Maybe the Stumptown on 3rd will become some lame tourist mecca, like the Pike Place Market Starbucks in Seattle. And then we can all drive by it and stare at the line snaking...
