Seattle and Portland aren’t lacking in rivalries: There's Timbers vs. Sounders, the light rail vs. the Max, Top Pot vs. Voodoo doughnuts. Then Travel + Leisure named Seattle America’s Best City for Hipsters (because of our microbrews and tech geeks) and things got serious.

And talk about unicorns.
