Each visit to Voicebox is an opportunity to try something new. Maybe it's belting out a random selection from the 12,000-title song list, which contains music in English, Spanish, Thai, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, and Taiwanese. Or maybe it's taking on the role of a backup dancer, a tambourine player, or a co-headliner who grabs a second microphone to share the spotlight. All of these scenarios unfold behind the closed doors of private karaoke suites, where friends can gather around the TV and make their song selections using Voicebox's custom remotes or a proprietary smartphone app.
Besides the music, both Portland locations feature onsite kitchens that cook up fresh Asian cuisine. Specialties range from pork meatball bahn mi to Thai chicken pita pizza, which doubles as a great vocal warmup when said aloud. Local beers and sake cocktails complement the food.
Instead of relying on harmful rays, Organic Bronze Bar?s organic, paraben-free formulas call upon natural ingredients such as walnuts, antioxidants, and pure botanicals to deliver a safe, natural-looking glow.

Nestled beneath the luminous beacon of its old-timey marquee, the Clinton Street Theater cements its status as Portland?s oldest continuously running independent film house with a rotating slate of foreign films, documentaries, and cult classics. Weekly screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Repo: The Genetic Opera draw fervent cultists dressed as their favorite characters and boom-mic operators, complementing screenings of splattery horror flicks with thought-provoking opera from rising and renowned auteurs. The cylindrical glow from a whirring projector jets across the Clinton?s spacious theater, illumining arrivals from such directors as Sidney Lumet and Gus Van Sant, who is notorious for instructing his actors to break character midfilm to challenge texting film-goers to bare-knuckle brawls.
Upon wandering into Spints Alehouse and seeing the plates of schnitzel and Bavarian-style pretzels, visitors might assume they’ve been magically transported to a German pub. But after scrambling to produce their passports, they realize that a slice of Germany has come to them, not the other way around. In true European tradition, diners feast on selections from a seasonal menu chock-full of spaetzle, a german pasta, and pork schnitzel before washing them down with carefully crafted mead cocktails that attracted the attention of the New York Times. As in kitchens across the Rhineland, desserts revolve around rich flavors such as those found in the likes of chocolate-almond layer cake and butterscotch pudding, and just like in the Rhineland, they must be eaten from a knight’s helmet.
The chain of Helium Comedy Clubs releases giggle gas from famed headliners and tomorrow's brightest stars at its Philadelphia, Portland, and Buffalo locations. In front of a tabled showroom that allows audiences a clear sightline and maximizes guffaw acoustics, a bustling calendar of familiar comic talent fills most of the week with levity, and open mic nights and standup workshops put aspiring jokesmiths higher up the comedy rung. Although the club holds guests to a two-item minimum, the menu inspires curiosity regarding maximum orders, with tempting savories such as shrimp cocktail, pulled-pork sliders, avocado and chicken paninis, and spicy potato bites with ranch dressing.
