The Perfect Date on Division Street

By Ross Seligman, July 22, 2020

It’s Friday morning and you have a half day at work. You’re panicking because you said you would be done with work by 1:00, but it’s 12:30 and you still haven’t picked out an outfit, showered, or even decided what you even wanted to do?

Home cooked meal? Movies? Long walk on the beach? AHHH!

Instead of watching a 2 hour movie where you have to awkwardly sit in silence, why don’t you first take them to Stumptown Coffee Roasters, grab some iced coffee, and take a walk around Mt. Tabor? Ask them how their work week went and how they’re feeling? Catch up and reconnect.

After that, you all will probably be hungry. You ask them what they’re in the mood for and they reply, “I don’t know, anything works for me!?”

“Okay no problem! What about take-out from Pizzicato Pizza? Oh you’re not craving pizza? No problem!”


Walk 5 more minutes down Division and we see Petite Provence Boulangerie & Pâtisserie. “Not a brunch person? No problem!”


Walk a minute or two more and there’s Kim Jong Grillin! “You love Korean food? Awesome, me too!!!” Even though it may be hard to find a place you both agree on, nothing is more convenient than having a lot of options all on one street for an indecisive date!

After the date, you can head 5 – 10 minutes down to Salt & Straw to taste their new seasonal flavors or Pinolo Gelato for a more richer tasting dessert. Nothing beats ending the date on something cold and sweet on these hot summer days!

The best part is that all of these places are within driving and walking distance of each other since they’re on the same street! Also, they do take out! So don’t forget your masks and practice social distancing with others!

Ross Seligman moved to Portland in 1999 after accidentally discovering this oasis of a city in a nationwide desert of strip malls and sprawl. Ross likes to call Portland the "land of opportunity." Why, you ask? Where else can you be a successful real estate broker while simultaneously leading a double life as a musician? That would definitely be a bizarre combination in New Jersey but, in Portland, quite ordinary. In Portland, one expects that their straight-laced accountant is secretly oil painting between Yoga classes. From the moment he arrived in Portland, Ross quickly fell in love with the vibrant energy of the people, gorgeous homes and neighborhoods, and exploding arts scene. Deciding to embrace it all, Ross became an active real estate broker and quickly immersed himself in the city culture. Working with premier Portland boutique company Living Room Realty, Ross is well known for his accessibility, integrity, professionalism, knowledge of the market, and passion for Portland. When he is not busy representing clients or studying market trends, you can find Ross playing music around the city, hiking and camping in the unparalleled beauty of the Pacific NW, and spending as much time with friends and family as possible. Ross Seligman also appeared on Broadway at the Lyceum Theater in NYC as Janis Joplin's guitarist in "A Night With Janis Joplin".
