The noon rally, which included music and live speakers, began hours after thousands swarmed Washington, DC for the rally staged by Jon ...   More

Have you seen the light? Awesome holiday drive-bys.


News
WW does try to be a bastion for all things festive. But on Monday I received an email from a reader named Karen that quickly made me realize we're FAILING some of your holiday needs, dear readers. OK, I've searched your site and cannot find any sort of list showing where to find the homes of the local Christmas-light-fanatics. You know who I mean, they put so many lights on their property that it ...   More

Fashionably Free


News
You might want to postpone your holiday pants purchase until next week. This in light of American Apparel CEO Dov Charney's decision to donate 300,000 articles of clothing in the days leading up to Christmas. At least 20,000 of those items, says Tacee Webb, an AA project manager in Portland and close friend of Charney's for nearly 10 years, will be distributed in Portland. “When a company ...   More

Chrismukkahkwanzaa Whore: Gorging Yourself Silly


News
Greetings, once again, from Consumer Whore: Stopped by Canoe (1136 NW Alder, 889-8545) a few nights ago. When you don't know exactly what you are looking for gift-wise, this shop, with its well chosen contemporary smorgasbord of house/office/personal/kitchen-wares, is an inspiring refuge of national and international design. One freestanding piece in particular, and probably not the most traditional ...   More

Chrismukkahkwanzaa Whore: Shop Standing Up

One of Portland's latest and greatest boutiques to scratch the surface of this town's collective creativity is Stand Up Comedy (811 E Burnside, Suite 119, www.shopstandingup.us).

Chrismukkahkwanzaa Whore: Jews Unite!


News
Let's face it: X-mas Eve and Christmas Day pretty much blow for the Jews. Everything is closed, the streets are dead quiet and all our gentile friends are wrapped up in tree-trimming and stocking-stuffing. Well, this Christmas Eve is lookin' up for the chosen ones with the Ace Hotel and HEEB Magazine-sponsored all-out extravaganza tonight. It's the First Annual Heebonism Portland. In past years, ...   More

Encore: Pink Martini Does its NYE Thing at the Schnitz


News
Missed the Pink Martini concert on New Year's Eve at the Schnitz? Well, you missed a lot. Like MGM screen legend Jane Powell macking on lead chanteuse China Forbes at midnight, as well as this little snippet of Brazil, from their first album which served as the encore (if you look close you'll see Metro-man David Bragdon dancing his ass off in the background) that I was able to sneak out of the ...   More

Eve & Day: Two Very Different New Year Meals.


News
I am going on a diet NOW. That's due in large (and I mean large) part to the two meals I had over the last two days. The Last Meal of 07: The first one was on New Year's Eve at my friend Carl's posh downtown condo. It was super swanky with all sorts of chilled Moet and Veuve and, as its centerpiece, an AMAZING Fruits de Mer display full of lobster, shrimp, and oysters. And no, I didn't ...   More

Chrismukkahkwanzaanewyear's Whore: All in the Details


News
Yeah, it'd be nice to go out and get a new celebratory dress for the New Year's Eve festivities. But that perfect dress probably requires the cash you spent on showering the fam with presents. Instead, find something vintage, gussy it up with some jewels from local designers and invest in some pieces you can rock year ‘round. This sweet, hand-hammered bow necklace ($48) hangs delicately ...   More
