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.


or this one


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