While I spend a lot of time with Portland’s cocktail and micro-distillery world for DrinkSpirits.com, I can’t help but be drawn to all the amazing wine and beer festivals and events that take place in Portland year round.  One event which has always been on my radar screen is the Portland Indie Wine & Food […]

Star Wars In Concert Review

October 15, 2009 at 11:00 am Events, Music

There are many different ways the Star Wars franchise could have presented on the road. I shudder to think of the rejected ideas: Star Wars The Musical, Star Wars on Ice, or maybe even Star Wars The 3D Experience.

Star Wars In Concert Giveaway

October 9, 2009 at 2:41 pm Events, Giveaways

It’s unnecessary to exalt the virtues of Star Wars, it exists as one of the most influential series of films of the 20th century (well at least the original trilogy).

Professional Bull Riders in Portland Interview – Ross Coleman

October 1, 2009 at 6:22 pm Events, Interview

It takes a lot of guts to be a professional bull rider. Over a season with 30+ stops a bull rider takes a tremendous amount of physical damage (including broken bones, dislocated shoulders and a ton of bashes and bruises).  Somehow these bull riders pick themselves up and hop back on those bulls for another […]

TBA:09 in Review – locust crushed

September 8, 2009 at 9:58 am Events

That craving was more than met with locust, whose energetically explosive performance ‘crushed’ swept me up and left me waiting more.  Locust mixes many styles and mediums to bring together a collection of non-narrative dance segments that […]

Sunday Parkways in Portland

August 14, 2009 at 10:46 am Events, Family, Green Living

I’ve lived in Portland for seventeen years, and of all the events, activities and festivals I’ve attended in the city, one of my absolute favorite is Sunday Parkways. The event is extraordinarily simple: several miles of urban roads are closed to cars and become the playground for bikes, pedestrians, strollers, roller bladers, unicyclists, anything BUT […]
