With the eclipse just a few days away, estimates are rolling in stating that around one million people will visit Oregon to watch it… and smoke weed, apparently.
With more strip clubs per capita than any other city in the country plus a whole myriad of sex-positive groups, meetups, and a particularly horny population (CBS ranks us #1 as the most promiscuous city in the United States) , it’s no surprise that people in Portland enjoy their… erm… nocturnal activities.
However, we’re also a city filled with citizens who care for our animal counterparts with new vegetarian and vegan restaurants popping up all over the place as well as a great concern for organic products not tested on animals.
Well, now you can add organic, vegan sex lube into the mix thanks to Eugene, Oregon’s lube-making company Good Clean Love’s recent announcement that the FDA approved their request to use human volunteers instead of animals during rounds of testing.
Portlanders love their food. How could we not? Portland attracts some of the most talented and creative chefs in the entire country cooking up some of the tastiest and most gorgeous dishes in the world.
However, are you one of those Portlanders who goes to the animal shelter and coos over the goofy-looking dog? Did you like the Pontiac Aztek, one of the most hideous examples of committee-designed automobiles ever (best known from Breaking Bad)?
Maybe you don’t want that perfectly round tomato. Maybe you don’t want that apple genetically-designed to be redder than red could possibly be.
If so, we’ve got good news – Imperfect Produce is coming to Portland.
Those darn Californians. First, they move to Portland and annoy us all with their terrible driving habits and all their money raising our property values and improving our local economy, and, now, they’re stealing our Salt & Straw!
Seriously, though, Salt & Straw, the hugely successful ice cream company and incredibly-long-line creative factory, is expanding its reach, opening its first store in San Diego later this year after opening locations in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Portlanders love green energy. We really do. We even opt in to pay a premium to use wind energy to power our homes instead of fossil fuels, nuclear or hydroelectric solutions. So, imagine this – what if we replaced every sidewalk, road and playground with solar panels?
Oh, and this isn’t a dream – this sh*t is happening right now and YOU can be a part of it (but only for a limited time).
Do you Groupon? Do you enjoy Living Social? How about do you… accept Offers from Google? Erm… partake of Goffers? Hmmm… Google Offers will take a little more thought to come up with the right invented verb. Regardless of what you call them or which ones you use, deal-a-day coupon sites are springing up all over the place.
Click-Z, an online marketing website, interviewed Powell’s Books to find out that they are planning to try Google Offers later in June. If a company as popular as Powell’s Books is talking about trying out Google Offers, we started wondering – what’s the deal with these sites?
