Geeks To Go PDX is the brainchild of Erik Wood, head geek and experienced computer tinkerer for more than 20 years. Having cut his teeth on the sharp surfaces of motherboards and heat sinks, Erik thought it natural to open his own shop and provide a base of customers with in-workshop and onsite services. Today, the accomplished internal designer and his team welcome in wheezy systems for services such as diagnostics and repairs, virus removal, and network or system setups. Additionally, they perform tasks for businesses, including server setup, system cloning, and operating-system repairs, which they quickly complete while employees are out playing at recess.
In JJ Extreme territory, a girl wearing a harness is suspended from the ceiling by a rope and swings back and forth, her squeals carrying throughout the space. Elsewhere, her brothers also wear harnesses as they race one another, running toward a basketball hoop and hoping to make a shot before a bungee cord pulls them each backward across a soft, inflatable mat. Here at JJ Jump and JJ Extreme, each location sprawls over more than 4,000 square feet and teems with inflatable challenges and bouncing joy for children. JJ Jump’s jousting arena settles sibling rivalries in a civilized and laugh-filled fashion, and giant slides teach children about the effects of gravity and hair’s weakness against it as they safely soar toward the ground. Each facility also boasts a creative play zone that eschews bouncing for a while and is ripe with construction toys and a stage where children can let their imaginations run wild.
Yuen Lui Studios, a family-owned photography business specializing in individual and family portraits and wedding photography, creates photographic heirlooms in a tradition of quality it has upheld since 1947. With several area Yuen Lui studios available, each boasts a multitude of backdrop options for portraiture sessions, or photographers may take sessions outdoors to add natural scenery to the frame. Wedding and engagement shots come to life under the careful eyes of each photographer as they seize rare moments and trap them in frames to be displayed like trophies from a hunt. High-school, child, baby, and family portraits keep precious memories locked in time for clients, who can peruse an online gallery of their images after their session.
At Healthy Alternatives Detox & Natural Supplement Center, anatomies get a boost from such chemical-free treatments as infrared sauna sessions and detox foot soaks. The low-heat sauna simmers statures, increasing bodily temperatures in an effort to toughen immune systems’ defense against bacteria, microbes, infections, and missile attacks from tech-savvy dragonflies. Sauna-dwellers can burn up to 500 calories in one 30-minute session. Before the one-on-one consultation, clients fill out a health questionnaire, which they then review with a certified herbalist. Based on the determinations made during this session, the health master recommends a diet plan, supplements, and further treatments. Spa guests can also settle shoe-stuffers into ionic footbaths during the 40-minute detox foot soak, which stimulates bodies with bioelectrical currents to shoo toxins and extend their battery lives.
The sleek, wooden rink that houses Gresham Skate World has buzzed with the whir of wheels since 1974, when the facility first swung open its doors to a community that now encompasses multiple generations of skaters. The rink provides safe, family-friendly entertainment seven days a week, offsetting standard open skates with a lineup of special events, ranging from all-night sessions to cosmic skating on weekends. To help celebrate special events or dodge bounty hunters, reserve one of Gresham Skate World's private rooms. The center's onsite skate shop stocks an assortment of accessories, and the snack bar fuels full days of axels and dips with hot dogs, nachos, and pizza.
