    From Eight Venues, Seven Days, One City: Portland's Venue Bucket List:

    A historic silent film house turned burlesque theater that’s been elegantly remodeled (yet still reportedly haunted by the ghosts of pasties past), the Star Theater was reopened in 2011 in time for its 100th birthday. With its booths, bar areas and an isolated balcony, the room feels strangely put together but has a feng shui that works and sounds great—plus offers all-ages shows to boot.

    Check these off your list:

    ▶ Arrive early so you can explore the place uninhibitedly or claim the booth beside the soundboard.

    ▶ Go for the gyro: Stuffed with lamb, feta and tzatziki sauce (and splashed with sriracha if you want), the Mediterranean cuisine comes courtesy of the revered food cart Zaalook.

    ▶ Crowded inside? Step outside, enjoy the sweeping patio, and huddle around the firepit if you’re feeling frigid.
