19 THINGS YOU HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO OUT-OF-TOWNERS ABOUT PORTLAND

Courtesy of  KATHERINE VETRANO 

Thanks to our awesome sports fans, food festivals, a certain TV show on IFC, and, like, every-other-Life Styles-article in The New York Times, your friends/family from out of town are probably anxious to come see our fair city. When they do, they’re gonna have questions, so we created this list of 19 things you’ll need to explain to out-of-towners like your Aunt Linda, who just saw Portlandia for the first time and thought it was hilarious.

1. It’s pronounced “cooch”, not “couch”
And yes, that’s where Powell’s City of Books is.

2. Now that we’re Downtown, you should know: no one actually goes to Voodoo Doughnut
That line around the corner? All tourists… and/or people who’ve had a few too many.

3. We don’t think Portlandia is funny
So stop telling us about that one episode with the thing. We saw it… in real life.
