Yes, it's yet another Portland question! My husband and I will be in Portland over Presidents Day weekend with another couple. We have been there many times, but have a couple questions inside!

We go to Portland a few times a year, usually to sell books at Powell's and buy many more. Our friends have never really spent any time there. Questions!
1) Any events going on that weekend - plays, conventions, burlesque, etc. - that might be interesting?
2) Restaurant recommendations! I've really enjoyed meals at Masu over off Burnside and Eleni's Philoxenia in the Pearl district, to give you an idea of atmosphere/price points. Not a huge fan of Indian or Thai. Allergy alert: one of our friends is allergic to garlic and onions so I'm looking for places where she can fairly easily eat something off the menu or find something easily modifiable (holding the shallot pan sauce on meat, for example).
3) Couples/women-friendly strip club recommendations? I used to like Union Jacks on Burnside until they remodeled and removed all the seats that weren't either at the bar or directly in front of the stage. We went to... Devil's Point, I think it was? And I was the only woman there not on stage and the drinks were terrrrrible.
