Portland has always been known for it’s diverse population, as a matter of fact, one of the most common bumper stickers reads"Keep Portland Wierd".

That being said, I should not have been surprised, on Saturday when I saw 20 dogs and their humans, parading down a street near my work, all bedecked in Irish green beads and sweaters, being serenaded by a bag pipe player. Nor should I have been shocked when 60 men and women assaulted our bar later that day , all in pristine white wedding gowns.
