Everybody really embraces recycling in Portland and at the street fair it looked like anybody can perform or display and we saw some truly amazing products....and things were super super cheap too! The bars and restaurants had bands too.

There is a place that is called Pine Street Biscuits. There is usually a long line there. I happened to look in there and saw no line. I ordered the Biscuit and Gravy for 4 bucks. It started off as a full 6 stars on a 5 scale, but it was sooooo rich that by the end I had to give it 3.5 stars. I don't know what they put in it, but I was full for the rest of the night.

On the street there are a variety of very entertaining bands. Maybe there were 15 or 20 in all. They were all very good. Below is typical of what you might see.
Alberta Street is shut down from 6 until 9:30 and after it was over we met up with a friend. He was worried that it might be too cold to ride his scooter home. His friend offered him her jacket to wear, but he wasn't sure if it was his style.

This was at the bollywood theatre and the food looks really good and reasonably priced there. After that we happened across a great band. I didn't catch their name, ... it was something like Chernobyl. Anyway they were russians and sang many songs in russian. They were very good and entertaining. Below is a clip of their performance to give you a feeling for them.
