When using the hotel's $75 dining credit to Gilt Club, guests can re-create a Portlandia couple's insane chicken scene from the “Is it Local?” clip filmed at Gilt Club, shown here:
Go as far as they did with the poultry nonsense and we'll tease you until you cry to your mommy.
You'll also receive a jar of Portland’s own Moonbrine Pickles inspired by the skit “We Can Pickle That” as well as Olympic Provisions charcuterie as seen in the song-sketch “The Dream of the 1890s”.
Another gift for you is a copy of Portlandia's co-creators and co-stars Fred Armisen (SNL) and Carrie Brownstein's (Sleater-Kinney) new book Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors. As with the show, the book's main challenge is figuring out what is real and what's not. Hint: Voodoo Doughnut is real. Brunch Village isn't.)
As you wander the streets with guidebook in hand, look for the latest free-gan or sea-gan restaurant and try to catch a glimpse of the mayor (who plays the assistant mayor in the show), or Kyle McLachlan (who plays the mayor),. But, do us a favor, if you see Fred Armisen in a wig and a dress – and you are 99% sure it IS Fred Armisen and not just some random hippie-Goth chick with a lisp – take a picture, and send to us stat.
