Revenge Of The Nerds


Along with Southeast Belmont’s Hall of Records, Record Room (8 NE Killingsworth St., recordroompdx.com) represents Portland’s latest attempt to combine every last activity young people enjoy (in this case, record shopping) with alcohol. Drinking and music buying can be a bit of a dangerous proposition, lest your beer goggles (beer headphones?) start making those old Kajagoogoo cassettes seem enticing, but this so-called “vinyl lounge” has a comfortable atmosphere more akin to a coffee shop than a bar, with bench seating, large windows, free Internet and cups of Stumptown to accompany the cheap pints of microbrews, PBR and glasses of wine. Add a listening station, pinball and nightly DJ sets, and it’s an inviting hangout even for those who prefer drunk downloading.
