Hoping for some inspiration!  I get to spend one afternoon/evening/night in Portland this coming weekend with a friend & neither of us are very familiar with the city.  We are staying at a downtown hotel (on SW 11th Ave) and I would love ideas about a nice way to spend the evening.  Great place to eat?  Hear music?  Walk?  Anything else?

Waterfront park is a nice walk.

Chinese Gardens is in easy reach.

Lots and lots of fine places to eat. But if you want a dynamic view of the bridges and ships, sailboats going by.. try this spot.

Oh, and lots and lots of tourists find their way to Powell's Books which is on 10th.
