The much-bruited Port City Music Hall, whose initial opening date was New Year's Eve, but then January 17, delayed its opening again. Theoretically, the venue will have its liquor license from the state in time to open this Saturday, since it wasn't ready in time for last. We can promise to be much more psyched about the place once they actually let people in.
Last night the Portland City Council approved reopening negotiations with the politically connected Ocean Properties (you know, the one run by the gov's cousin and his brother - except now the gov's bro is just a "consultant"). Of course, we've been calling for a complete do-over since August 2007 (see "Saving a Sinking Waterfront") but the council isn't interested.
