Stopping in Portland - foodie recs, best of Portland

I would echo just about everything JillO has said about PDX options you can't get in Seattle:

Lunch - Do the foodcarts at SW 10th & Alder or Kenny & Zuke's
Dinner - Apizza Scholls and Screen Door are both amazing

...or see what Portland's legendary happy hour scene has to offer (check

Additionally, if you happen to see the Koi Fusion (Mexican-Korean) food cart pass by - chase it!

Lobster Bake Law

Does anyone know what the regulations are for cooking on the beach in Maine - or how well they're enforced? I'd hoping to do a pit barbecue/lobster bake with friends and family and would hate to have it shut down by the Coast Guard... anything about location above/below mean high tide line, etc?

cheap ethnic eats in Portland

Asmara Restaurant is located just one block from the Portland Museum of Art and serves the best Eritrean/Ethiopian food I've ever had. It is an unassuming venue, but don't underestimate the flavor. The lamb is legendary, and the vegetarian options are also fantastic.
