Mommy Knows Worst: Dinner And A Pap (Restaurants Picks On The West Coast That Are Only Minutes From My Favorite Planned Parenthood Clinics)

by Tiffany Greysen

Seattle, WA

Highline (210 Broadway Ave E) / Planned Parenthood First Hill Center (1229 Madison St)

One of the only punk vegan bars in Seattle. It also offers comedy. A great venue, with amazing food and awesome service. Parking can be rough, so get there early. As a side note, I once headlined a show here and realized that Amanda Knox had been in the audience—I didn’t even notice! The Highline offers a monthly comedy show called Loudmouth Cunts—check out the next show on August 6 (7pm $10).

The closest Planned Parenthood to this awesome place is under a mile away and offers easy, online appointments, so you don’t even have to talk to anyone!

Portland, OR

Devils Point (5305 SE Foster Rd) / Planned Parenthood Southeast (3231 SE 50th)

Stripparaoke—where Portland’s finest dancers strip, while people try sing karaoke. Every Sunday at 9pm, the activities begin, so warm up your pipes and get in early.

While stripper karaoke happens on Sunday, be forewarned that the Southeast Planned Parenthood is closed on Sundays. But, you can make appointments online. So, while you’re waiting for your turn to sing on Sunday night, you can be booking your next health check on Monday (this location is also less than a mile away).

Kit Kat Club (231 SW Ankeny St) / Planned Parenthood NE Portland Center (3727 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd)

Always busy, always beautiful, plus Voodoo Donut is RIGHT THERE...less than two miles away from one of the best Planned Parenthoods in town.

McMinnville, OR

Mac Club (2223 McDaniel Ln) / Planned Parenthood Salem Center (3825 Wolverine St NE)

The Mac Club supports live entertainment, plus it has great bar food with happy servers. I’ve never been disappointed in the service or the shows—it’s always a good time.

Unfortunately, Salem is home to the closest Planned Parenthood I could find. But, the travel is the worth quality services.

Los Angeles, CA

25 Degrees (7000 Hollywood Blvd) / Planned Parenthood East Hollywood (1014 1/2 N Vermont Ave)

Okay, every time I am in this large, sprawling place of L.A., I make a point to hit up 25 Degrees, because they have the best kale salad in the whole world. I have tried to call them, while pretending I have food allergies, to get them to reveal their recipe, but it’s been all for naught and they won’t tell me shit. But, they also have beer shakes and it’s a great place for a cozy date. It’s located in The Roosevelt, a block from the famous Chinese Theater and directly across from Baja Fresh. It’s also just one block from the Hollywood Star of the legendary Joan Rivers...sigh.

The closest Planned Parenthood in these parts is East Hollywood—but, like any L.A. resident will tell you, it might take you 20 minutes to get there. As always, they offer easy online appointments and often have escorts (the G-rated kind) available, if you would like clear access to the clinic.

Did you know that Planned Parenthood provides sexual and reproductive health care, education, information and outreach to nearly five million women, men and adolescents yearly?[1]

Planned Parenthood provides more than 295,000 pap tests, more than 320,000 breast exams annually, as well as critical services in detecting cancer and more than 4.2 million tests and treatments for sexually transmitted infections (including more than 650,000 HIV tests).
