Billed as a "low/no budget guide to visiting and living in Portland, Oregon, the Zinester's Guide to Portland breaks down the PDX grid by neighborhood with descriptions of good restaurants, thrift stores, bars, bridges, places to loiter, etc.(lots of etc.). The newly overhauled and illustrated fifth edition gets shoulder-deep into the history and local lore, providing a well-rounded argument as to why (fill in the blank) deserves your time. It also demystifies the TriMet public transportation system, bike events and culture, outdoorsy stuff, the public libraries—basically anything you need to know as the new kid in town. (Of which there seems to be tons; theZinester's Guide has been on Powell's Books' top 20 since 2006.) To the wrong eyes the book's title might imply a guide to Portland zine culture, but as editor Shawn Granton says in the introduction, the Zinester's Guideis not just for zinesters, that "It's always been about sharing the interesting and unique things that make Stumptown great, and also helping people get by that aren't swimming in scads of money." For those of us that can't so much as dogpaddle most days, this is "community" at its mightiest.

We ve all been Axl in the 'Welcome to the Jungle' video, stepping off the bus in our hicky clothes and cowboy boots, staring into shop windows, hustled at from alleys just ridiculously rudderless and confused. A new city any city can be daunting. But [ZGPDX] is conversational, non-exclusive, friendly, and above all easy to use. It gets shoulder-deep into history and local lore, reaching into the guts of its subject and pulling out a hot, wriggling, well-rounded argument as to why (fill in the blank) deserves your time.

Loaded with gems on how to have a cheap and amusing time in the Rose City. After a brief history of the city's founding (it involves two men in canoe), you'll find helpful transportation advice and a breakdown of the city's offerings by location. Its exhaustive listings boast everything from arboretums to sex shops, vegan doughnuts to free museum passes, and dollar Pabst to the Mudeye Puppet Company. Utne ReaderPerfectly positioned to capitalize on Portland's white-hot popularity, while also serving as a valuable educational tool by turning on readers (especially those on shoestring budgets) about city highlights that won't be covered in travel magazines or websites. Plenty of civic pride and boosterism, and even more overlooked Ink 19
A hip, cool, Portland version of a Lonely Planet guide." Razorcake Refreshingly honest.
