Best Date Places
Happy Hour makes for the perfect first date.
It's a quick,
casual meeting to see if you have mutual interest/s, it's cheaper than
a full dinner, and you get to drink a little! These are some quiet, quality, and impressive places:
(Out & About)
--Living Room Theaters
(DT) Incredible Happy Hour!
--Portland City Grill
--Pour Wine Bar
(NE) 2-for-1 entree coupon in book
(Out & About) 2-for-1 entree coupon
(NW--play pool after--FREE with coupon in the book!)
(NW) Serenade at 2-for-1 rate w/coupon :-)
Arrive at Happy Hour EARLY if you are trying to get a table for 8+!
Call for details, but these are common spots that don't necessarily charge room fees, but
of course do require some imbibing:
Benson Hotel --Quiet and gorgeous
Chapel Pub -- Nice little private room
Macadams -- Many private or party rooms
Old Wives Tales -- No Happy Hour, but free group room available with meal purchases
Seres -- Long group table space in bar
Spaghetti Factory -- Small groups, must buy lunch/dinner
Thirst -- Variety of options
Banquet list from OpenTable:

Okay... I am from Chicago where they are known for their pizza, and have struggled to find much of a BEST list, but I want one!! I'm not taking responsibility except for what I've found and enjoyed as listed below. Email me with favorites and I'll see what gets mentioned most, and try it again. At HAPPY HOUR only, please.
Wood-fired and delicious:
, Nostrana, Piattino
Wood-fired and pretty good:
Bar Due, Firehouse
No Happy Hour, but Apizza Scholls and Lovely Fifty-Fifty
(Lovely Hula Hands owners) have the best I've found, in addition to the aforementioned. PDX Pipeline came up with a good list, and ended up with highlights being Ken’s Artisan, Escape From New York, Vicente’s and Flying Pie.
