    Umm… all the places that you picked for NE are actually in North Portland. None of them are in NE. Not to be a stickler for detail, but there’s some good stuff going on in NE that would be good to list….

      You’re correct. That is probably why I shouldn’t be posting at 12:45AM on a Sunday night/Monday morning after a long weekend. It has been corrected.

      If you have some “good stuff going on in NE”, please add that info here or send it to us.

    Yeah… what’s the deal in NE for St. Patty’s Day?

    where do you buy tokens for the pub crawl?

    • Julian Chadwick March 16, 2010 at 6:09 pm #

      Not 100% sure, but I think they are available at all the pubs on the crawl.
