7. Here are some suggestions of "not to miss" Portland hot spots.

 

The two free weekly hip urbane publications with entertainment
guides to music venues, what band, etc. is playing where, etc.
http://www.wweek.com/portland/
http://www.portlandmercury.com/

Some of my favorite pubs, venues, destinations, etc. are as follows:
The Goodfoot - pub, music venue, resturant, and perpetual visual
art show.The every Friday evening DJ scene is epic.

The Peculiarium - More pdx homegrown Portland weirdness in one
place than you can shake a stick at:

Voodoo Donuts - No Portland visit would be complete without standing
in line at Voodoo donuts for at least 1/2 an hour, to get to select from
a world-class plethora of donut oddities.

Ecstatic Dance - If your son is a dancer, here's a link to a network of
regular dance venues that are non-alcholic and frequented by the "ecstatic
dance community"

Rimsky-Korsakoffee House - Rimsky's is one of Portland, Oregon's most reserved
and well-kept secrets. An historic 1902 Victorian house withy many quirks and
eccentricities: photographs hang down on strings from the ceiling; in one room,
a circular table rotates so slowly that if you do not pay attention to it, your cup
of coffee will end up on the other side; all of the tables are covered by a movable
sheet of glass, so that visitors can leave something behind a note, a sketch,
poetry of love lost. Let me tell you right now that this place is hard to find. Your
best bet is to Mapquest it by its address (707 S.E. 12th ave), because there are no
distinct signs or anything else to even indicate it is a place of business.
