Pearl District is a New American culinary gem in Sherman Oaks

At one time, the large space at 14015 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks was home to a casual eatery called Café Cordiale. Then, it was taken over by the folks from the nearby Boneyard Bistro, and turned into a more elegant spot called SOCA. Which after a year and a half was replaced by a Mexican concept called Boneyard Cantina. Which you may have missed if you blinked; it didn’t last very long at all. Now, the space is a branch of the very popular Westlake Village New American called Pearl District....

Guest Opinion: Losing the 7th Avenue greenway

This post from Kiel Johnson comes in response to news announced today that the Portland Bureau of Transportation has decided to route the Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway on 9th Avenue. “9th Avenue will become the greenway.” The words put finality on years of advocacy, countless hours spent knocking on doors, talking with neighbors, making yard signs, and writing letters. This past Sunday my living room was overflowing with my fellow neighbors and their children who live on 7th. They h...

PBOT decides on 9th Avenue for route of future Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway

Close-up of new proposal showing where the greenway will jog over to 9th. See full map below.(Graphic: City of Portland) The Portland Bureau of Transportation has shifted course on their Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway project. Citing a lack of “broad community support,” for the Northeast 7th Avenue route option, they’ll announce later today that the new greenway will be on Northeast 9th Avenue. (Update: Here’s the official announcement.) The change in plans comes despite major suppo...

Caution: Pricing Glitch Makes Some Travelers Pay More for Alaska’s Saver Fares in Sabre

Part of the fun that comes with having the Cranky Concierge air travel assistance business is that I get to poke around in the Sabre Global Distribution System (GDS) regularly. And that means sometimes I stumble across issues that even the airlines don’t know about. That happened earlier this week with Alaska’s Saver (Basic Economy) fares. They are, in some cases, pricing higher in Sabre than elsewhere. Sometimes, the lower fare is first being displayed but then, thanks to Alaska’s uncompeti...

Any folks on here living the RV or Van Life Full Time

I really enjoy looking at ways to improve the Gem Top Canopy on the back of my old 2wd F150. Youtube has TONS of videos of how folks are living in them full time.. How they've modified their trucks (or vans) (or travel trailers) to live what could best be as a Pre TEOTWAWKI lifestyle. Tonight I was looking over ways for making money while out there and while a decent wi-fi connect is a priority, so is a decent laptop that will run the software you're using. I actually use a legal version of ...

Our annual don’t be a jerk in River View Cemetery post

Please slow down and ride with respect for others. (Photo: BikePortland) One thing I’ve realized about doing daily local news in a fast-growing city is that even if we’ve covered something several times, many people who are new to town are still in the dark about some things. At least I hope that’s the case with a recent incident in River View Cemetery. So if you’re new to town, please listen up: That forested path through the cemetery that takes you safely between the Sellwood Bridge and SW Pa...

Zipcar Disruption

This isn't a security story, but it easily could have been. Last Saturday, Zipcar had a system outage: "an outage experienced by a third party telecommunications vendor disrupted connections between the company's vehicles and its reservation software." That didn't just mean people couldn't get cars they reserved. Sometimes is meant they couldn't get the cars they were already driving to work: Andrew Jones of Roxbury was stuck on hold with customer service for at least a half-hour while he and ...

A solar-powered home in Maine rises above the sand dunes on wooden stilts

Portland-based firm Caleb Johnson Studio has unveiled a beautiful cedar-clad home elevated off the ground on stilts so that the natural “landscape is allowed to flow under the house.” The solar-powered home, named “In the Dunes,” was designed to not only protect the natural dune terrain, but the resilient design also reduces the risk of damage caused by potential coastal flooding. Located in the coastal town of Wells in southern Maine, the three-story home is built on sand dunes overlooking th...

These ad execs have a venture fund they’d like to sell you

Mike Duda comes from the world of advertising. In fact, he spent 13 years at the renowned ad agency Deutsch, becoming the youngest partner in the company’s history until another creative, Brent Vartan, came along and stole the title. Little wonder that in 2010, when Duda struck out on his own to create Bullish (formerly known as Consigliere Brand Capital), he stole Vartan, later making him the firm’s second managing partner. It isn’t that the two wanted to outgun their former employer exactly. I...

Portland researchers behind major new helmet tech launched by Trek/Bontrager

WaveCel’s “collapsible cellular membrane” showed much better results in initial lab tests than traditional foam or MIPS. A local company has played a major role in the development of a new helmet released today by Bontrager, a bicycle part and accessory brand owned by Trek Bicycle Corporation. Bontrager says the WaveCel technology used in their new line of helmets, “disrupts 30 years of accepted safety standards.” The company says research proves WaveCel is up to 48X more effective than common ...

10 Millennial Women Talk About Where They Donate Money & Why

From Planned Parenthood to Patreon to ASPCA, millennial women are giving — regardless of how much money they make — to the causes and charities they care about.Philanthropy isn't a word reserved just for multimillionaires.

Conditions on the I-205 path are unacceptable

document.createElement('video'); With so few safe and direct alternatives, the I-205 multi-use path in east Portland is a crucial backbone in our transportation network. Unfortunately it’s been rendered nearly unusable due to an abundance of trash, personal belongings, and makeshift homes that have been built upon it. People deserve places to live and people deserve safe access to these transportation corridors. We shouldn’t have to settle for either/or. Everyone in Portland is awa...

My Partner & I Make $165,000 A Year — & We Saved $65,000 To Buy A House

Nearly 10 years ago (!), I found myself in pretty much the same situation as the woman featured on this week's episode of Money Diaries: The Podcast: My fiancé, now husband, Ken, and I were trying to simultaneously plan a wedding and buy our first apartment in Brooklyn. It was stressful to say the least. And two years into being a mother who also holds down a full-time job, I still have to say that first-time home-buying mixed with wedding planning is more insane than raising an infant.I also d...
