We had the best time in
. We just love that city and people. We will always hold Portland close to our hearts. Thanks to the many nice people in Portland and Oregon who made our visit a nice one.
I had a great time in
. I went to brush something off my shoulder and it turned out to be the floor.
has more nightlife than anyone could possibly need -- the center of gravity for partying on a Friday and Saturday night is the pub district, at the intersection of West Broadway and Olive street, stretching a few blocks in any direction. This is a pedestrian-friendly area with a wide variety of pubs -- from cozy Jamesons' to upscale Davis' and Adam's Place; to belly-dancing at Cafe Moroc and Argentine Tango at The Tango Center (an all-ages place); live music at Cozmic Pizza, McDonald's Theatre, John Henry's, The Hult Center, The Shedd, and The WOW Hall; to DJ music in the underground Diablo's; from card-playing at Full House to pool with a real community feeling at Lucky's. There are a bunch more -- all these places are pleasantly packed. Most have food. Most covers are good value. There's a wide range of ages and types of people, possibly because Oregon's main University is here. It is quite easy to get lost in the friendly nightlife here.
I love the bus system. For $2.50 you can get a day pass and go far. They also have a free bus between
and Springfield (the EmX ).
If you are planning on moving to
as a musician or are planning to move your band here do yourself a big favor and bypass Eugene. You will get nowhere as everyone here plays for free. That is if you can even get anyone to let you play. Bypass Eugene and you will never regret it.
