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.
An actress, model, and featured dancer in the movie Showgirls, Kristen Titko uses dance to cultivate movement and bolster self-esteem. Her exotic adult dance classes help ladies release their inner vixen while also feeling happy with the body they see in the mirror. A veteran of pole dancing, Kristen’s classes emphasize the same sensual moves but without the use of dance poles. Classes integrate elements of modern or belly dancing and host ladies for a girls night out or bachelorette party.
When she lived in Houston, Sophie managed the acclaimed restaurant Pondicheri, worked at the Houston Farmer's Market, and played piano and cello at various schools and organizations. No matter how crowded her schedule became, she centered herself by practicing yoga daily, a routine she brought with her to Portland in 2011. Today, her primary passion is still yoga—her team of experienced instructors leads daily sessions at Vibrant Studios. The teachers offer a smorgasbord of vinyasa flow classes, and they also touch on more advanced approaches by incorporating hypnotherapy or catering to musicians who want to be flexible enough to sleep inside their french horns.
With its wide hardwood floors and soaring ceilings, Vibrant Studios' 1,800-square-foot main studio welcomes visitors with a sense of bright, open space. Natural light streams through three skylights to illuminate the yoga and dance classes that are held there daily, and a high-quality audio system takes advantage of natural acoustics to fill the whole space with sound. Work from local artists decorates the rest of the facility, which includes a back room for private consultations and bodywork, as well as a kitchen where guests can pick up complimentary tea before or after each class. Striving to encourage mindful living in all its forms, the staff also hosts workshops on topics from herbal medicine to sustainable business, as well as themed dinners designed to build community through sharing stories.
