For pre-dinner drinks, try The Big Legrowlski on NW Couch Street. It seems appropriate that The Dude would set up shop on "Couch" Street. The bar is small, with minimalist decor and taps lining the wall. All the beers are $5. The Breakside IPA is excellent, and the bartender told me it was brewed just a couple of miles away. This bar perfectly captures Portland's nighttime vibe.
