Located in the best little strip mall in Portland. Tiga has great drinks, music, and food for you to enjoy. Then wander 2 doors down to Beacon Sound and flip through a well-curated collection of vinyl records.

Cool gallery and store on Burnside. They keep a pretty consistent calender of events, always worth checking out. Some purchases include a mix tape CD of fine taste.

One classic arcade to rule them all. Whenever I need a break from animating or staring at an editing screen I run across the street and clear my head with a couple games of Lord of the Rings pinball or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The best sushi and the cheapest, which normally doesn’t make sense, but it really is. It’s a train too so it’s easy to grab a seat and eat whatever you like for as long as you like. Classic 80’s hits help wash it all down. Probably my most frequented restaurant in Portland.

Up past the more famous rose garden on the west side is an arboretum with hiking trails and a zoo. Great views of Portland’s downtown and Mt. St. Helens in the distance. It’s very peaceful and any time of year it’s a nice and quick escape from the city, just takes under 10 minutes to get to.

Home to the best breakfast burrito in the world. But their hours are unpredictable and they often run out of eggs (possible?) early and have to close. So get there early or plan for a weekday visit.

Leah Nash and Christopher Onstott are an award-winning photography & videography duo based in Portland, Oregon. They specialize in real people commercial, editorial, corporate, education, and travel photography. Both originally photojournalists, Leah and Christopher take a moment-driven approach, capturing authentic imagery whether in life, at work, or on set. The result is graphic, storytelling, portrait and lifestyle photography that is full of color, light and intimacy. Not averse to dancing (her), telling bad jokes (him) or listening intently (both), their goal is to leave their subjects a little bit better than they found them. All the while creating a wealth of images that look and feel spontaneous. They feel darn proud to work for brands like Apple, Charles Schwab, Microsoft, Chase Bank, Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, The Oregon Symphony, Marriott, and Portland State University. They also shoot for a variety of editorial clients including National Geographic Traveler, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, Mother Jones, NPR, and AARP.
