Hi there -
Heading to PDX from SF the second week of October. We'll be staying 4 nights at the Kennedy School and would love Chowhounds' recommendations for great breakfast, lunch, happy hour, and dinner spots in Portland and the surrounding areas. We do plan to head to Hood River for a day as well, so if you have recs for Hood River, send 'em along! Also, any good festivals or events that we should check out?
