P.S. It's Black History Month, and as we learned from Rukaiyah Adams last year, black history in Portland ought to be shaping our city's future. Click the GIF ๐Ÿ‘† to check out our conversation with Rukaiyah about the Albina Vision.

What Portland is talking about

The Oregon Legislature kicks off its 2020 session this morning,ย and Democrats won’t be wasting any time getting down to business. That’s because even-year sessions only last 35 days, and there’s a lot that Dems want to get done this time around, from gun control to disaster prep to a major climate bill. (OPB)

Heads-up to drive carefully next time you’re on the Glenn Jackson Bridge. According to a new study, the I-205 bridge saw more than 120 accidents last year, making it one of the most crash-prone stretches of road in the country. (OregonLive)

Oregon Craft Beer Month has moved from July to February. That means Zwickelmania is only two weeks away, and a ten-day festival of beer pop-ups is already underway at Function PDX. (OregonLive)

Speaking of craft beers, the Merc went looking for Oregon’s funkiest hazy IPAs โ€” and even ended up liking some of them. Their favorite: “Life’s a Peach and then You Die” by Riverbend Brewing. (Portland Mercury)

We have nothing but love for Californians here at Bridgeliner, but we do have to admit, nothing screams “we’re being invaded by Cali tech money” quite like the Sacramento Bee writing about a $8.65 million real estate listing in Portland’s West Hills. Really, Sacramento? We know there are plenty of $8 million houses closer to home, even if they’re all two-bedroom bungalows. (Sacramento Bee)
