I’ve been looking around Portland for a place that dishes up biscuits and gravy with a bite to it. Do you know a place that makes it with spicy sausage or something?
Hmm, not sure how that any are particularly spicy, but they make darn good biscuits and gravy at these places, and you can always top them with hot sauce: Industrial Cafe, Screendoor, Arleta Library Cafe, Gravy, Podnah’s, Besaw’s, of course Pine State Biscuits!
A couple years ago the Oregonian came up with some favorites: here
Here is a great website with some other lodging options in the Hood River area.

Where’s the best cycling trails in Portland or surrounding? I want a 30-40 mile-ish ride with pretty views!
There are tons of great rides in the Columbia Gorge, 60 miles from Portland. There are no mountain bike trails of that length in PDX itself, but Forest Park has fireroad riding and very limited singletrack.
The Oregon Brew Fest (in July) for one thing! Several street fairs & take place in July/Aug too, also Sunday Parkways . If you like sports, don’t miss a chance to see the Timbers (our soccer team) play at home!
I’d check out Astoria and Canon Beach, see this blog entry. I would take I-5 to Hwy 38 to the coast and down to San Francisco.

My husband and I are planning to move to Oregon toward the end of next year. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what cities/towns are with in commuting distance of the Portland area?
Commuting distance is relative, of course. Much of close-in Portland is actually quite residential, so you could consider that. Nearby suburbs include Gresham, Beaverton, Hillsboro, Lake Oswego, West Linn, Oregon City, etc. Like Rogue Ales says, traffic can be bear – but it really depends on your own tolerance for it. The Portland area has some good transit too, so the first three suburbs I mentioned, for example, there’s light rail into Portland.
Got my flight to Portland, staying two blocks from Rogue Ales Public House! Cant wait I need to start planning my beer attack, suggestions?
I have the ultimate pub crawl for you here. Have a look, and holler if you want more.
