Up in North Portland, and conveniently just off of the Lombard Street exit of the I-5 Freeway, the raffish Eagle (835 N. Lombard St., 503-283-9734) is not only the northernmost gay hangout in the city, it's the region's favorite gay bear bar, the official home of the Oregon Bears. It's also a pretty raucous and sexy spot, with porn on the video screens, and cheeky parties like Jock Strap Twister, L.U.R.E. (Leather, Uniforms, Rubber, Etc.), Bearly Naked Billiards, and so on. Whatever your particular style of dress, unless there's a theme party, the Eagle is pretty much "come as you are", and very welcoming of all ages and looks. The Sunday late-afternoon barbecues are great fun.
