Spend an afternoon window shopping, trying on new and vintage clothing, and snacking on food from some of Portland's favorite eateries. Don't miss Momento PDX (local art and gifts), Powell's on Hawthorne (a satellite location of the flagship bookstore), the Bagdad Theater (first-run movies and pizza in a beer pub), or Apizza Scholls (one of Portland's best pizzas).
