There's also weekend brunch.. Page 17.

Hotel Modera Portland - Modera Hotel - Portland Small Luxury Hotels - Hip Hotels Portland - Gay-Friendly Boutique Hotels - Nel Centro at Hotel Modera
The sleek, low-slung Hotel Modera - with its clean lines, bold colors, and striking contemporary artwork - has quickly become one of downtown Portland's most popular accommodations since it opened in 2008 inside what had long ago been a gloomy Days Inn (it's hard to believe the building's history, when you look at it now). Close to the cultural attractions and museums of the tree-shaded

Portland Farmers Market - PSU Farmers Market - Portland State University Farmers Market - Saturday Farmer's Market - Portland Park Blocks - PSU Market
Among serious - and even not-so-serious - food aficionados, the weekly Portland Farmers Market held on Saturdays on the edge of the campus of Portland State University is considered one of the best in the country. The variety of local purveyors selling everything from fresh berries to artisan cheeses is impressive enough, but you'll also find several carts and booths hawking amazingly tasty prepared foods, from country biscuits and gravy to savory Italian sausages..

Steam Portland - Hawks Portland - Steam Gay Bathhouse - Steam PDX Gay Sex Club - Hawks Sex Club Portland - Portland S&M Clubs
Portland's longest-running gay bathhouse is an attractive, modern, and clean facility with a handy location just off I-84, a short drive from downtown. The Portland's newer bathhouse and sex club is Hawks, located in Inner Southeast, just across the Willamette River from downtown.. Page 44.

Stumptown Coffee Roasters Ace Hotel - Stumptown Coffeehouse Stark Street - Gay Coffeehouses Portland - Stumptown Ace Hotel - World's Best Coffee Beans
In a city that loves its coffee, Stumptown Coffee Roasters is often cited as the cream of the crop - the small-batch roastery provides coffee to a number of fine restaurants and cafes all around town. Pictured here is the cozy Stumptown Coffee Roastes just off the lobby of the gay-friendly Ace Hotel, right along Stark Street (and close to Boxxes and Scandals gay bars).. Page 26.

Roxy Diner Portland - Roxy Diner Stark Street - Gay-Friendly Diners - Gay 24-hour Restaurants - Portland 24-hour restaurants - Portland Diners Photos
A beloved fixture along Stark Street's strip of gay bars, the infectiously campy and fun Roxy Restaurant is arguably Portland's gayest little diner. It's a 24-hour lovefest of gays and straights, many with the requisite pierced nipples and colorful tats you'd expect of this neighborhood. The crowd is most interesting late at night but intriguing all day. Dishes have silly names - the pancake platters are nicknamed for busty beauties, such as Dolly Parton and Pamela Anderson. . Page 29.

Powell's Books Portland - Powell's Bookstore Portland - Powell's Books Photos - Portland Gay Bookstores - Lesbian Books - Powell's Books Burnside St.
One of the world's great meccas for book lovers, Powell's City of Books takes up an entire city block on the edge of the Pearl District in downtown Portland. It's the largest bookstores on earth selling both used and new books (in fact, rather unusually, Powell's stacks new and used copies of the same title on its shelves). The store's GLBT section is huge - larger than what you'll find at many small gay and lesbian bookstores.. Page 11.

Belmont District Portland - Gay-Friendly Portland Neighborhoods - Cool Portland Neighborhoods - Belmont Neighborhood - Belmont and Hawthorne Areas
The intersection of S.E. Belmont Street and S.E. 34rd Avenue marks the center of the Belmont District, one of East Portland's hippest and most gay-friendly neighborhoods, just a few blocks south of East Burnside and Laurelhurst, and a few blocks north of funky Hawthorne. Here along this strip you'll find Stumptown Coffee, the Belmont Inn bar and tavern, the gay-popular Aalto Lounge, and plenty of other fun restaurants and shops.. Page 42.

Mitchell Gold Furniture Store - Mitchell Gold Portland - Openly Gay Chairman Mitchell Gold - Gay Furniture Designers - Portland Mitchell Gold Store
The Portland branch of the stylish, upscale furniture store Mitchell Gold is located just off West Burnside Street, just steps from the gay-popular business district along S.W. Start Street (encompassing the Ace Hotel, Boxxes, and others). This beautiful showroom carries a wide selection of designs by Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams. The company's chairman is openly gay activist and business mogul Mitchell Gold.. Page 43.

MAX Light Rail - Portland Public Transportation Photos - MAX Portland - Portland Fareless Square - Portland Airport Light Rail Train - Portland MAX
One of Portland's many great attributes is its first-rate, cheap public mass transit. Here's a shot of MAX Light Rail train. Portland's Light Rail is part of the city's comprehensive TriMet system, which also includes an extensive network of buses as well as the handy Portland Streetcar, which connects the South Waterfront to Northwest Portland via downtown and the Pearl District. Max is a cheap and easy way to get from Portland's airport into downtown for a little more than $2. Page 28.

Jupiter Hotel Portland - Hotel Jupiter Burnside Street - Hip Motels Portland - Jackelope Tattoo Studio - Wack Hair Salon - Jupiter Doug Fir Lounge
A once frumpy motel on a dowdy stretch of East Burnside, the Jupiter Hotel was revamped into a sexy and rather cheeky rock-and-roll hotel several years ago and has remained a favorite (and very gay-friendly) roost of revelers and music fans ever since. The cluster of sleek motel-style rooms (they're small and spare, be warned) offer prime access to the property's famed Doug Fir, a fantastic spot to watch live music and dine on quite-tasty mod-American fare.. Page 36.

Cup & Saucer Portland - Cup & Saucer Cafe Hawthorne District - Great Breakfast Restaurants Portland - Portland Vegan-Friendly Dining - Cup and Saucer
The original - and most popular - of a small brand of funky cafes around Portland that specialize in fresh and healthful breakfast fare, the Cup & Saucer Hawthorne has been an East Side mainstay for more than two decades. Drop by for cozy vibe, long menu that includes many vegan and vegetarian options, and famously tasty scones and baked goods. Cup & Saucer is a genuine throwback, and a community fixture. There are additional branches in North Portland and Northeast Portland (near Alberta).. Page 32.

Cacao Portland - Cacao Chocolate Shop - Cacao Drinking Chocolate - Portland Chocolatiers - Portland Artisan Chocolate - Cacao Chocolate Heathman Hotel
On the edge of the way-gay Stark Street bar corridor, just off of Burnside Street, Cacao is a super-cool and undeniably fun spot to sip unbelievably rich and pure premium chocolate, and to shop for fine chocolates imported from all over the world. This isn't a place to buy novelty sweets, elaborate confections, or bulk candy - this gay-owned boutique aims to educate its patrons by introducing them to high-caliber, handmade chocolate, both in solid and sipping form.. Page 20.

CC Slaughters Portland - Rainbow Room Lounge - CC Slaughters PDX - Portland Old Town Gay Bars
CC Slaughters, one of the top gay clubs in Portland, is located in Old Town, a short walk from downtown's gay bars. Here's a review of this lively nightspot.. Page 16.

Bread and Ink Cafe Portland - Bread & Ink Portland - Hawthorne District Best Restaurants - Hawthorne District Breakfast Restaurants - Portland Waffles
One of the more reliable eateries in Portland's funky Hawthorne District, Bread and Ink can be counted on for filling, hearty breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare - burgers, blintzes (something of a house specialty), salads, and the like. It's a reasonably priced spot in this gay-and-lesbian-popular neighborhood - nothing special, but good in a pinch (especially when you can't get in to the more crowded Cup & Saucer Cafe, down the street).. Page 49.

Bluehour Restaurant Portland - Bluehour Pearl District - Portland Gay Happy Hours - Bruce Carey Restaurants - Gay-Friendly Pearl District - Bluehour
With 23 Hoyt, Saucebox, and Clarklewis, the dapper Pearl District restaurant Bluehour is part of a group of sexy, see-and-be-seen Portland restaurants run by talented, gay restaurateur Bruce Carey. This glam space with high ceilings is a wonderful spot for a sophisticated happy hour amid the elegantly converted warehouses of the Pearl District, and also a top pick for a fine, if spendy, lunch or dinner. . Page 24.

Alberta Arts District - Alberta Portland Oregon - Alberta Street Shopping - Portland Alberta Neighborhood - Alberta Galleries - Alberta Last Thursdays
Part of northeastern Portland's up-and-coming Concordia area, which underwent a major renaissance beginning in the mid- to late '90s, the Alberta Arts District contains a bounty of gay-friendly restaurants surrounded by attractive and historic residential blocks. Monthly Last Thursday celebrations are a fun time.. Page 7.

Helser's on Alberta - Helser's Portland - Portland Top Breakfast Cafes - Alberta Arts District Restaurants - Gay-Friendly Portland Dining
Serving inventive, healthful, hearty, and affordable breakfast and lunch fare, cheerfully decorated Helser's on Alberta is one of the Alberta Arts District's best little neighborhood eateries. For breakfast, consider the Louisiana hot sausage scramble wrap with cheddar, or brioche French toast soaked in vanilla-cinammon batter. Do not miss the fantastic pepper-smoked-bacon BLT or spinach, goat cheese, and pear salad at lunch. Page 30.

Fuel Cafe Portland - Fuel Cafe Alberta Street - Alberta Arts District Coffeehouses - Fuel Coffeehouse Northeast Portland - Portland Alberta Dining
A funky java joint in Northeast Portland's diverse and creative Alberta Arts District, Fuel Cafe (at 1452 N.E. Alberta St.) is one of the neighborhood's more gay-popular hangouts and an excellent place to sip espressos and lattes, surf the Web using free Wi-Fi, and nosh on light sandwiches, pastries, and bagels. There's a breezy patio that's a pleasure to laze away an afternoon on.. Page 35.

Doug Fir Lounge Portland - Doug Fir Lounge Jupiter Hotel - Gay-Friendly Live Music Clubs - Portland Photos Music Bars - Doug Fir Club East Burnside
Among Portland's dozens of renowned live-music clubs, the Doug Fir Lounge is a top venue for indie and alternative rock bands, including queer acts from time to time. It's at the ultra-hip and gay-popular Jupiter Hotel. Doug Fir's music club is in the basement (and pictured here), but upstairs there's a mid-century retro-chic restaurant serving exceptionally good contemporary-style comfort food.. Page 19.

Scandals Portland - Scandals Gay Bar - Scandals Stark Street - Portland Gay Neighborhood Bars - Downtown Portland Gay Nightlife - Gay Video Lounges
With a refreshingly cheesy name that hints at its age (it opened in a different space along Stark Street in 1979), Scandals moved into a prettier space a few years back and morphed from semi-tragically sullen locals joint to genuinely festive and friendly video cruise bar. It's a relatively intimate spot with a friendly staff, and the crowds here range from sparse early in the week to packed to the rafters on weekends. Page 25.

World Cup Coffee & Tea - Powell's Books Coffeehouse - World Cup at Powell's - World Cup Coffeehouse Burnside Street - Pearl District Best Coffeehouses
Inside the iconic Portland bookstore, Powell's, this quite spacious branch of the local chain World Cup Coffee & Tea has lots of seating, both at tables and along the windows (which afford great people-watching). The bustling cafe is open late and draws a predictably literate and well-informed bunch, with a decidedly left bent - this might be the best coffeehouse in town for meeting like-minded friends.. Page 39.

Stumptown Belmont Street - Stumptown Coffee Locations Portland - Portland East Side Coffeehouses - Gay Portland Coffee Shops - Portland Best Coffee

How many underwear shops do you know of that hold gay fashion parties with briefs-clad models? A festive and slightly cheeky shop in downtown Portland, a short walk from the Stark Street gay-bar strip, gay-owned UnderU4Men has become legendary for its Friday night fashion shows (at 7 pm), featuring hunky boys modeling nothing but Ginch Gonch and AussieBum delicates. The store carries more than 30 brands of underwear and is a must if you have a boxer-briefs or g-strings fetish.. Page 18.

The staff is typically fun and helpful, a departure from many surly Portland sex shops.. Page 27.

St. Paul’s workaday downtown is anchored by the intersection of North Roberts and 7th streets, which is also where you’ll find the visitor center run by the Minnesota Office of Tourism, which is a good place to pick up brochures and information on the region outside the Twin Cities. From here it’s about a 10-minute walk northwest to reach the Science Museum of Minnesota, which appeals largely to children but has some fine exhibits on paleontology, biology, anthropology, and the like.
