Things About Portland That Suck Book Deal!!!

taptscover

The good folks at Powell’s Bookstore have agreed to do a limited book run of the Top 100 things about Portland that suck(could also have something to do with the write up by TAP and their 1,000 increased page views a week). Our staff of writers will be doing book signings later this month at the downtown and SE locations. The book will retail at $10 and made to be recycled after the first reading.

  1. Lived in Portland for over a decade and was always amazed by the frozen Portlander’s who had this saying, “If you don’t like it, get the hell out of here.”

    Best move I ever made. My kids get educated, there are jobs, people can deal with weather (real weather), man, the list can go on and on. Good riddance to the gray dump.

  2. “Pioneer Courthouse Square has become your college’s Fraternity basement. A lot of people you don’t know/like reeking of alcohol.”

    Funny and awesome analogy. :D

    By the way, there used to be a beautiful east-facing 8-story hotel on the Pioneer Square site, called the Portland Hotel. It was built in 1890 and torn down in 1951. That was a period when a lot of neat victorian buildings were razed simply because people wanted something that “looked more modern”. In this case, a 2-story parking garage. :|

    The courthouse would be off to the lower left, just out of the picture.

    Different view

  3. I checked the Hawthorne Powell’s today and inquired about the book, they had no idea what I was talking about. It’s not there.

  4. You need to add this book as #1 item on the list of things that suck about Portland!!! Right above the #2 item – your blog.
