  • E+Etv: InFocus chats with Tope on a Sunday afternoon

    Wednesday, September 17, 2014

    InFocus covers individuals who work hard on and off the clock, individuals who progress through learning and doing, and those individuals who never understood the words, “give up.” The first time I heard Tope was back in 2010 on a TxE track, since then I’ve been a fan. It’s been awesome watching Tope grow as […]

TABOR BREAD

Portlanders are ridiculously spoiled in terms of food options, but sometimes we can’t even believe how lucky we are to have places like Tabor Bread right in our backyard. Owner Tissa Stein has transformed an old medical building on SE 51st and Hawthorne into a cozy haven from the rain. With exposed beams, a gorgeous […]

Instead of watching clip after clip of saddening images and listening to stories of killers, why not […]

BAR DOBRE

Bar Dobre, the new Polish-Italian spot on SE Hawthorne and 40th, couldn’t have opened at a more perfect time. We’ve been looking for a place to escape the rain and cozy up for hours with a drink and some grub to warm our bellies (and souls), and Bar Dobre (pronounced doe-bray and translating to “good”) […]

COMPOUND GALLERY – END OF THE WORLD

Lately, it seems the public is totally obsessed by the apocalyptic-world ending-zombie attacking theme. Being a total 28 Days Later/Walking Dead fan (along with the rest of the world), we are totally fine with this trend. Some Portland galleries also took notice and went with the End of the World themes for their December shows […]

While the holiday season is a time for joy and celebration (and presents), it’s also a time to turn our attention to the less fortunate. This year, on the heels of Superstorm Sandy, we feel especially grateful for what we have and want to give back to those in need. Luckily, Country Cat chef Jackie […]

Little Boxes: Shop alternatively during Black Friday weekend

Instead of bumping elbows during the Black Friday frenzy of big-box stores, thousands of shoppers are heading to Portland’s indie boutiques this weekend to support small, local businesses. Organizers of Little Boxes, now in its second year, originally launched the event as an alternative to chain stores. Founders Betsy Cross and Will Cervarich, co-owners of the […]

Emily Katz explores dreams in art and fashion

Dreamy poems set the mood for Emily Katz’s show last Saturday night at the Breeze Block Gallery. Models in neutral-colored tops and dresses ambled down the center aisle framed with flower petals. At the end of the walkway, they lingered in front of a sheer piece of cloth embroidered with fluid lines. Katz, a 29-year-old […]

EMILY WELLS

We’ve been listening to Emily Wells non-stop over here at E+E. Wells, the “one-woman orchestral/electronic tour-de-force”, started playing violin when she was four years old. Four! What were you doing when you were four? Her music is not exactly categorized into a genre, though people liken her style to a hybrid of classical and hip-hop. […]

LITTLE BOXES

When thinking about pet adoption, she doesn’t want people to think of a “sad Sarah McLachlan song”. She’s all about finding the […]
