Preconceived Notions About Portland.

In four days I leave for Portland, and I'm not sure what to expect, so I've gathered together the things that others have told me to get some pre-impressions about the city.

-They don't let you through customs unless you can name the most recent Y Toro Moi album, and your favorite Arcade Fire song.

-The taps in the bathrooms have three spouts: hot water, cold water, and craft beer.

-Shirts will come in one pattern: plaid. Any shirts deviating from this pattern will be subjected to aggressive plaid-painting by a rogue team of hipsters on fixies. 

-Weed stores are probably like adult Disneylands.

-Oh, boy. You better believe it's going to be quaint.

Back in a week, friends!
