Portland was a great time. Doug Fir is a super tight sounding room, and the adjoining Jupiter Hotel and Doug Fir restaurant / bar / lounge were top notch. I did not leave the premises all evening. A self-contained touring oasis. Five stars. If you're looking for a weekend getaway, and a band you want to see is playing at Doug Fir, DO IT. GO.
