Longtime Portland residents Peter Korchnak and Lindsay Sauvé are connoisseurs of weird, which makes them the perfect guides to a city internationally renowned for its abundance of strange and quirky charm. They cover the classics for first-time visitors – Voodoo Donuts, themed bike rides – while also highlighting the off-the-beaten-path places and people that truly keep Portland weird. Where else will you find a guidebook that tells you where to go to “have velvet Amy Winehouse watch you eat fried chicken” or “pet a superhero pig”?
As a fellow Portlander who lives for the tiny horses, parading mermaids, and unicycling Star Wars villains that can’t be found anywhere else on Earth, I must say y’all captured the spirit of our fair city quite well.
