Looking Beyond Brooklyn

I'm moving from Brooklyn NY to Portland OR in late March, so I've started looking at what's doing out there. Apparently an aide to former president George H.W. Bush nicknamed the city "Little Beirut" after a series of violent protests of the elder Bush's visit in the 90s. It stuck, and has become a point of pride among activist residents.

Turns out there's also a band of the same name.

After April, if you're visiting that way, lemme know and I'll buy you one of the city's fine, fine microbrews.
