Drink 2011 By The Numbers

Five Fishbowls
Space Room
Page 33. Space Punch: raspberry and vanilla vodka, orange and cranberry juice, sweet-and-sour mix. $7.
Hungry Tiger Too 207 SE 12th Ave. Erase Your Face: We so do not want to know. $10.
Thatch 2733 NE Broadway. Volcano Bowl: Uh, there was a lot of rum, and fruit juice. And cinnamon? It was 28 ounces. $28.
Gypsy 625 NW 21st Ave. Gypsy Juice: rum, rum, rum, cherry and pineapple juice, Sprite. 64 ounces, $20.
Gold Dust Meridian Page 16. The Zombie: rum, pineapple, lemon, bitters and a whole lot of Squirt. 60 ounces. $23.

Five Fireplaces
Tonic Lounge
3100 NE Sandy Blvd. Tonic’s two fireplaces, one of them in the sunken bar, lend the former strip club a ski-chalet ambience.
Hutch on Holgate 4515 SE 41st Ave. The former family restaurant’s frontier-themed basement has bas-relief panels over the hearth.
Cheerful Tortoise 1939 SW 6th Ave. One of those circular, false-log deals with an enormous blackened flue.
Blue Moon 432 NW 21st Ave. Another circular hearth, this one surrounded by a tile counter for fire-lit dining.
Vault 226 NW 12th Ave. A stately white number, with cover art from the Cocteau Twins’ Lullabies EP hanging above it.

It’s 2:30 am. Now what?
Drink Some Coffee

Southeast Grind (1223 SE Powell Blvd.) has the distinction of being the only place in Portland you can enjoy an Americano and free Wi-Fi at 4 am on a Sunday. If you’re a westsider, Ava Roasteria (4655 SW Hall Blvd.) provides the same in Beaverton.
Eat Some Doughnuts
You’ve probably heard that Voodoo Doughnut (22 SW 3rd Ave. and 1501 NE Davis St.) is open all night. So are Heavenly Donuts (504 NE 102nd Ave. and 1915 N Lombard St.), where you should have a regular raised glazed, and Sesame Donuts (6990 SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway), where you should have a sesame cake.
Grab a Pizza
Both Lonesome’s Pizza (234-0114, lonesomespizza.com) and Hammy’s Pizza (235-1035, hammyspizza.com) deliver until 4 am. After that there’s just Jefferson’s Pizza (241-2431, jeffersonspizza.com), which will bring a pie to most places in Southwest until 4:45 am.
Have Some Meat
The Original Hotcake and Steak House (1002 SE Powell Blvd.) serves both all night long. So does Tik Tok (3330 SE 82nd Ave. and 11215 SE Division St.), which also serves fresh cinnamon rolls. If you’d prefer a burrito, Javier’s Taco Shop (121 N Lombard St.) can give it to you, with fries. Speaking of fries, have you had the Lord of the Fries at The Roxy (1121 SW Stark St.)? You should, but only once. Finally, pie: Banning’s (11477 SW Pacific Highway, Tigard) has a decent Key lime.

Three Bars for Nacho Lovers
Taqueria Los Gorditos
1212 SE Division St. Gorditos’ animal-friendly pileup makes great strides in the direction of a just world in which vegans can pretend they’re eating meat as nasty and contaminated as the grisly garbage carnivores consume. Take them next door to Apex (page 8) and eat them with beer.
Esparza’s Tex-Mex Cafe 2725 SE Ankeny St. Esparza’s shredded-pork nachos are an especially happy-making concoction of warm chips right out of the fryer, topped by a thick stratification of sweet pork and a heavy blanket of cheese.
Dots Cafe Page 13. The chips are piping hot; the perfectly melted cheese attains almost total coverage while developing a subtle crust at the edges of the plate; sour cream zigs and zags across the entire outer layer; and the salsa, devilish agent of sogginess, gets its own small bowl.

Five Bars Where Your Kids Are Welcome
Laurelwood Public House
5115 NE Sandy Blvd. Has a play area for the tots.
Widmer Gasthaus 955 N Russell St. Offers both a kids’ menu and crayons.
Hopworks Urban Brewery 2944 SE Powell Blvd. Has an even better play area than Laurelwood.
Raccoon Lodge 7424 SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway. Has kid food and outdoor seating.
Blitz Ladd 2239 SE 11th Ave. Bring ’em in for air hockey until 9 pm.
