Vivace, Victrola, Vita, Zoka, Trabant, Zeitgeist, Stumptown... all wonderful shops in their own rights. I'm not real familiar with their cupping schedules. The bus system should get you around just fine, there's a slight learning curve just like any transit system, but I've never had any issues with it. The bus drivers are usually friendly and will help you if you get confused with it.
