Portland’s got its fair share of great dive bars, but not all of them advertise themselves as “Portland’s friendliest bar” on a sign outside. And dammit, it might be true. The Slammer has basically refused to change as the industrial area around it has hipsterfied (that skee-ball and the acceptance of credit cards are the only new flourishes).
