Much has remained the same at The Leaky Roof Gastro Pub throughout the eatery’s 60-year history. Luckily, the old roof, which once generously admitted the elements, has been replaced, but the sounds of revelry still rattle ranks of bottles on the original bar. Patrons perch there, sipping microbrews and an extensive selection of Irish whiskeys while warmth and light cascade into the room from a three-sided fireplace.

The aroma of Guinness-battered fish 'n' chips drifts from the kitchen, where chefs use local ingredients when possible and focus on sustainability. Their constantly rotating menu has featured inventive appetizers such as garlic truffle fries, which is infused with the restaurant's own truffle oil made with locally sourced black truffles, and country-fried chicken with mirepoix peppered gravy. In addition to buying local produce, the owners support the community by working with local businesses whenever possible, taking part in Portland's composting program, and not jumping motorcycles over town hall even if it would look awesome.

In 1902, Johan and Arine Hentze immigrated to the United States with little more than a dream. They endured the journey and set roots in Oregon, where they purchased a 42-acre parcel on which they cultivated livestock and produce. Fast forward 110 years—and five generations—and the Hentzes’ descendants still operate the farm, raising fruits, nuts, and vegetables much in the same way their predecessors did a century ago. They’ve kept old-fashioned processing equipment onsite, allowing them to shell peas, crack nuts, and husk corn in the traditional way rather than letting a chicken do the tasks with its mind. Livestock such as lambs, cows, and turkeys still occupy the farm, and the Hentzes open it periodically for special occasions such as fall-harvest celebrations and Halloween-themed soirees.

Pump It Up's two indoor inflatable arenas bounce socked younglings high off the ground with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Trained, amiable staffers supervise fun-filled visits where parents can leap around with their kids through gargantuan, air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an air-filled obstacle course. Attendees can also focus their free play for special events, such as custom birthday parties and private team parties. These themed soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero while melting off youthful energy faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. Both giant arenas are climate controlled and maintained according to rigorous guidelines enforced by the well-trained staff and local police. Supplementing its thorough rule enforcement with expert installation and anchoring, Pump It Up holds itself to strict safety standards.

Arrows whiz across 20 to 40 yards at an indoor archery range before impaling a lineup of bull’s-eyes and animal dummies. Since 1971, archers of all skill levels have calibrated their aim and perused the inventory of archery products that adorn the 5,000-square-foot space at The Bow Rack. The shop houses a TechnoHunt virtual archery system, which allows participants to hunt game in a variety of simulated environments without the hassle of traveling or notifying all those poor bull's-eyes' next of kin. The selection of gear at the range includes products from Easton Archery and Hoyt, such as the the Hoyt Buffalo, which is the bow that Katniss uses in The Hunger Games.
