portlandia-guide.jpgHere's a quick preview of Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors by the television show's creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. It's unclear whether the book can function as an actual guide to actual Portland, but it does provide a handy map to the Brunch Village from the show's season two finale (above).

Also included: a heavily-coded guide to the dining scene, which includes symbols denoting pretend-vampire menus, restaurants where reservations are scorned/mocked, retro menus (from both the '20s and the '70s) and clothing optional restaurants.

Portlandia: A Guide For Visitors is available now from Grand Central Publishing (buy on Amazon). Below, the key to the dining guide's symbols and a video preview from Armisen and Brownstein.
