Things to do in Portland on your Birthday?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Whatup 'Fi heads! It's my 21st birthday, and besides getting trashed at whatever dive bars and going dancing, I can't think of anything else to do in Portland, Oregon on April 2nd. Any ideas? I could sure use some to remedy the possibility of boredom.

Happy Birthday.

Now, you are 'of age' and live in one of the best cities for drinking fresh beer. I suggest you go sample some of your finer breweries. Need a hint?

ROGUE!

Go now.

Thanks, and yep, I'll be getting drunk, but only on the kind of brew that I can actually enjoy the taste of. Smirnoff Twisted V Raspberry is my favorite malt liquor already, and my bros keep ragging on me, calling it 'chick beer'. Personally I don't give a crap. Anyway, I'll keep it in mind, Rogue...

Anything else of interest?

Late,
Abe

PS- Giggity giggity giggity giggity, aaallll riiight!

with smirnoff you should worry more about your teeth rotting away than alcohol poisoning (5% alcohol - VODKA - WTF?!)

Oh geez, I'll get in trouble for this, but head up to Vancouver, stop in at Fremont (Seattle) for sushi and a little Asahi Super Dry beer and then on to your final destination where there's loads of people having a good time

Wow... this is so weird. One of my best friend's girlfriend is actually having a birthday party tomorrow night. I'm going to Portland for a BBQ and then once midnight hits we're going out drinking.

Well then, I might run into you in a drunken stupor

Seeberg,

Why must it always be alcohol on the 21st birthday? Our society really has mucked up our heads. The fact that you have tasted alcohol before your 21st means that getting drunk just means that you can do it in public.

Since it is your birthday and if it is like, say, Colorado - you should be able to get your means for free, along with going to the movies for free.

If it were my 21st all over again and I had the withall I would go and parachute from a plane, and/or parasailing, take a helicopter trip to Alaska for a day, take a boat out to sea, hike the highest mountain in the area, visit a zazen monestary, go river rafting, take a jeep tour somewhere exotic, etc.

I'd do something memorable rather than just have a hangover the next day, where you'll never remember what you did.

Hooooowwws it goin'?
Well, my sister canceled on Portland at the last minute, so she, her boyfriend, my brother and myself, we went to 'Moonbakers' and some other place that was just too 'German S&M techno' for me. I will take all your guys' suggestions to note though! I had a rum+coke and two long island iced teas(I had no idea how good these are) and no hangover, and virtally no drunken effect-I was online later without incident. What would have made my night is striking up any conversations with cute girls, though

I know how you feel, wallijonn, to drink is not to make the most of the moment. I actually wanted (want to still) to go see Sin Sity, and maybe do something that has not yet come to mind. Personally, I can agree with all your suggestions- if I had the funds to do so, I would see and do so much. But alas, I live in hell, er I mean Salem, Oregon. And it sucks, big time. But that's why I'm going to Idaho...

More than anything though, I would still like to reunite with old friends, wherever they are and whatever they've been doing. Among a special few were those that even contributed to the novel I spent a year and a half working on(including some artwork concerning a certain redhead I uploaded on HeadFi)! Perhaps if my novel takes me anywhere it can take me back and set everything back to center stage? Oh well, this is more of a personal matter, so I'll keep it at that for now.

Anyway, yo Remilard! I got my ER6i's today, and holy crap man, these canalphones are freaking amazing- more audible decay then previously noticed in my tunes, more black between the instuments, and more clarity and spaciousness than I expected! I also got some Slicsound ear pieces for more experiments and gifts, some large size Shure eartips, and replacement prism gumstick batteries for my iRiver CD player. I'm ordering the Grado extension and 1/4 to 1/8" cord tonight. Question for you though: What is the average burn in time for an Etymotic, or do balanced armature drivers need burned in for improvement?

Oh, and sleepkyng, (saw your profile-relates to what I'm doing) what benefits do you get by putting cinderblocks under your speakers-I'm assuming floorstanding towers? I want to do it myself, to raise my tweeter height to ear level when sitting on my couch, and see if anything else beneficial happens.

These ER6i's are crazy man, like a koala crapped a rainbow in my brain! I don't even want to explore my SR125's now,
Abe

cinderblocks have really helped my bookshelves get up to my ears and they have kept the bass from going all over the place

cheers mate!

Nice. Maybe I can still get decent bass from my towers if I keep using them in the corners of my room then?

Check out the Church of Elvis on Ankeny St . I am a Saint in the Church of Elvis (and have documents to prove it).
