IN THE BOX

Sometimes it’s as simple as finding the best maple syrup in town, drizzled over a perfect pancake recipe, on a hand-crafted plate.

That’s why we’re here. We’ve searched for a slice of the city you shouldn’t go without. After all, life is better with surprise that sparks adventure and adds a special moment to one’s day.

GIVE A BOX

Around every corner lay new experiences to explore and memories to be made while embracing the wonderment and curiosity of exploring what makes the culture of your city unique. We’ve taken that essence and spirit and distilled it into a curated box providing a sampling of the craftsmanship, artistry, and experiences that weave the fabric of a city’s culture. It truly is a slice of a city.

THE BOX

IT’S WHAT YOU GIVE & WHAT YOU GET

AN EXPERIENCE

Each box is designed to give you an
experience; A memory you can capture
that will last a lifetime. A new favorite
restaurant, shop, artist, or venue.

YOUR NEXT
ADVENTURE

We are naturally creatures of habit, sometimes we need a little nudge to send us on our next adventure. The box is designed to do just that.

A WAY TO RELAX

The most relaxing moments are away from the everyday hustle, when you’re able to just be. We’ll show you the best parks, places to read by the water, or the cosiest of coffeeshops for more “you” time.

WHAT’S ON TAP

The biggest happenings, the must “to-dos” and experiences of your city. What’s happening next and what you absolutely cannot miss out on.

“It is our duty to give back to the city
and the program – together we must
help build this place we call home”

I was twenty-something and tasked with wandering the city with a camera; no rules, just shoot. It was through this experience that I was able to explore and view the city through a different lens (both figuratively and literally!). I began paying attention to the details, those created by nature and the others created by people, all intertwined, weaving the fabric that the city is today with hints of what it might be tomorrow. Taking this appreciation of the city, combined with entrepreneurial spirit within me that had been itching since my elementary school days of going door-to-door selling walnut mouse magnets, I set out to distill the very essence of Portland into a hand-curated box and Slice of a City was born.
