I don't have any tips but asked a couple of friends that are ex-pat Buffalonians that have been living in Portland for the past few years.
here's what my female friend (who works in the service industry) had to say about Portland: "Cool neighborhoods: The Mississippi District, the Hawthorne district, Alberta Ave (mostly cool at night for bars).
Cool bars: The Shanghai Tunnel, Ground Kontrol (a full bar with old school arcade games, pin ball and stuff...very cool), Portland City Grill offers an awesome view of Portland, The Fish & Chip Shop has a TARDIS room...if they're into Doctor Who at all, its very cool, The Whiskey Soda Lounge
Cool restaurants: Le Pigeon (AMAZING food but pricey), Portland City Grill, Hungry Tiger Too, Toro Bravo, Tasty & Sons, Sunshine Tavern, Pok Pok, Podnah's (I could go on and on about food)"
hope that helps a bit
