The Star Theater

  As I make my plans for a festive Halloween celebration at the Star Theater, I am intrigued by the storied past of this, recently refurbished, venue that sits between West Burnside and Portland’s Chinatown.

Slabtown

50 square blocks in Portland’s Northwest Alphabet District has been historically referred to as Slabtown. Why? Well it’s not because it was the birthplace of ribs basted in bitchin’ BBQ sauce, I can tell you that much! For tasty, fall-off-the-bone ribs and a selection of  finger-licking-good barbecue  sauces head over to Smokehouse 21 on NW 21st Ave.  It’s only blocks away, go there for ribs, you can thank me...
