Gonna be visiting Portland this weekend, can't skate due to a bum foot but any recommendations of shops,  food spots or attractions to hit up would be greatly appreciated.

Bummer, you think parks and hiking trails would be chill?

I’m not sure if they’re open currently cause there’s a stripper strike going on , but you should check out the drive-thru strip club that Lucky Devil Lounge concocted after covid made everything shut down

Some shops are open but you'll have to poke around and see for yourself. Some restaurants are doing the outside dining thing. Hike in forest park if you're set on staying in the city. Multnomah Falls is closed. Don't go downtown during the protests as the feds are here wrangling up any and everybody without question. Please wear a fucking mask if out in public.

Get down to the Justice Center after dark and see the Federal Cops smashing 1st Amendment rights.

Crazy time to visit but there's stuff to do.  Check out trail of ten falls hike, it's a loop and super beautiful:

Some restaurants are open with limited seating but my recommendation is to get some take out, head to cathedral park and hang.  If you're able with the vehicle rent a kayak if there are any available.  Mask up, be safe, and have a good time!

Appreciate the responses. Regardless of it not being ideal times to explore a new city I'm stoked to see some new sceanary. Haven't left California in years.

Hey, in all sincerity this is still a great place to visit. Get to the Colombia River Gorge. Get to the Coast. You're stoked if you like good coffee, beer.

If you really want to get your ass kicked by a hike, go out to the Zig Zag ranger station and hike Hunchback.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.

All the skateparks are open and being sessioned and so are more state parks at this point. Be cool, try to avoid crowded zones (easier said than done).

Chris Varcadipane moved to LA but has lots of Portland clips, including dropping a video called Farewell before moving

Adam Robo aka @Goombaslayer is another filmer who just dropped Mint Condition with a mix of footage from PDX and ATL. He films Austin Thongvivong a lot, and a few of the other Portland up and comers

Jon Colyer @jontallyer just dropped Sanitizer and is currently offering digital downloads for five bucks

Lots of footage from The Killing Floor is filmed in Portland

Tyler Bledsoe, Silas Baxter Neal, Dane Brady, Sebo Walker, Brent Atchley, Willis Kimbel, David Gravette, the list goes on

Tiger Mountain Slappy. If you want the curb spots- this dude is dialed in.
