What should I expect when looking for a room in Portland, Oregon?

I'm moving back to Portland in a few days to finish my senior year of college, and I'll be looking for a room in a shared house/apt over the next few weeks to move into November 1st while I stay in an AirBnb. While I have lived in shared housing in Portland before, my memory is a bit fuzzy regarding the difficulty. I'm wondering whether I should lower my standards due to scarcity or hold out for a room that fits my needs more. I also would like to know whether I should wait for a room that is available on my target date of November 1st or one immediately and pay more money? [more inside]

I really need mental health resources in Portland, OR.

My anxiety has flared up recently, to the point where I am reluctant to leave my house unless absolutely necessary. This weekend, I checked myself into urgent care after having five panic attacks in 12 hours. The health care providers there were less than helpful, and I feel like I've hit a wall in terms of figuring out how to get the help that I need. [more inside]

Good Portland OR neighborhood for AirBnB?

On a whim, we booked a trip to Portland, OR for next month. Then I went to book hotels, and apparently it is marathon weekend, and there are very few hotel rooms available downtown, and all above $200/night. We are looking to AirBnb as an alternative, but it's unclear which neighborhoods are good and which are bad as a tourist base. Every single listing says it's in a great neighborhood with easy access to public transit, so any tips?

Portland, Oregon Auto mechanic recommendation?

As a result of a series of events, it looks like I will be driving my boyfriend's older Bronco as a daily vehicle for a while.

Can you recommend one in Portland, Oregon? [more inside]

Where can I eat gooseneck barnacles & explore unique spots in Portland?

For instance, my SO really wants to find a place that serves gooseneck barnacle like they did here and explore spots like the abandoned Upper Salmonberry River Railway.

Ye Old Off Ramp Inn? Portland, Maine edition

I'm looking for a cheap place to crash off Rt. 95 near (or slightly North of) Portland, ME this Friday night.

Moving to Maine Part 2

So we rented the house and have a moving date and now we're looking for recommendations for movers that can get us from far Northern NY to Portland, Maine. I think we'll be better off with movers from Maine coming to get us as where we are currently movers are few and far between. Any recommendations for movers that provide such a service? Thanks!

Looking for a pet friendly 2/3 bed house/apartment in either Portland itself or South Portland or nice neighborhoods very nearby.

Seeing volcanic sights en route to Seattle?

Road trip filter! We're spending today (and tonight) in Portland and want to be in Seattle by mid-afternoon tomorrow. On the way, we'd like to visit a volcanic (or geological) outdoorsy spot. The original idea was to hike the Ape Cave lava tube, but looking at a map, it may be too far out of the way if we want to leave Portland at 9am and reach Seattle by 4. Any good alternatives?

GAGA Ball Pit in Portland OR metro area

My kids' school recently installed a GAGA ball pit (link) in their playground, and my 5-year old boy is in love with the game. His birthday is coming up, and we were thinking it would be great to incorporate some gaga into the party. We could have it at the school...except there are no bathrooms...which seems like a deal breaker for a kids birthday party. Does anyone know if there is another of these gaga pits anywhere in the Portland Metro Area (with bathroom access)? I have googled, and come up with nothing...but surely if there's one out there, Metafilter can find it! Thanks!

Best beer-related activity or event in Portland, Oregon?

I'm heading to Portland in July (hooray!) and am already ecstatically excited about all the awesome things there are to indulge in (kind of feel like this city is where I was supposed to live - too bad I live many timezones away). The town is overrun with amazing breweries and my partner who is joining me is a massive beer geek. We're already planning on visting as many breweries as we can and the Oregon Brewfest is on while we're there (double hooray!). However, I'd like to surprise him with the best beer related activity, event, or venue Portland has to offer (which is also acting as a consolation prize as I nixed the idea of staying at the Bed 'n' Beer in Newport). Ideas, suggestions, advice? I know there are a lot of Portland Mefites with wonderful taste - so I'd love any help! [more inside]

I'm a bird! I'm a bird! I'm a bird!... but what kind?

The birdsong in question! This is a bird in southeast Portland, OR. We've never caught a definite glimpse of it, so I cannot give any details on size/color/et cetera. This is its main song (although it was singing kind of short this day); it cycles this for an hour or more. It varies slightly at some point, but then comes back.

Song ID: something about liking/not liking popcorn?

Recommend me an ENT specialist in Portland, Oregon
