Oh, boy, someone coming to the Emerald Corner & the potential of a Ziner GTG!
Altho I could be a bit biased, I think Portland is pretty OK for a city. So, how about some details of your visit before I go off like a rocket with suggestions that might not work? Is the conference downtown? Will you have a rental car, or would you consider renting one for a day? What kind of free time will you have? Interests: hiking, biking, walking, windsurfing, shopping, museums, history?
In early August the weather up here is almost perfect (that's why you find me at home!), so there's just lots to do.
