Portlandia Visitor’s Guidebook Means It’s One Step Closer to Being a Real Place


Ooh, did you read the Portlandia book, Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors? If not, you can probably pick it up at the bookstore, because it’s going to be available starting November 20. (Which, incidentally, is my DJ night.) The book will “lead readers through the city’s landmarks, restaurants, etc., in the same tone that Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen have developed on the show.” In other words, Portlandia is slowly becoming a real place, with a school and stores and a mayor and everything. Spring break destination ‘13?
