Portland—the one in the Northwest, not the one to our north where our friends have that charming beach house—is a little like Brooklyn and a little like a nursery school full of adults. Or at least that’s what we’ve been led to believe from two seasons of Portlandia, the sketch show that takes on Oregonian hipster/layabout culture, from its obsession with organics (we East Coast urbanites can relate!) to its disdain for anything even remotely corporate (what are they talking about?!). Tonight, little-cable-network-that-could IFC throws a premiere party for the show’s third season at the Museum of Natural History, a common location for black-tie galas but one that—until tonight—hasn’t seen many garments made of hemp.
