Dive into the world of dysentery, death, and DOS with Joe Streckert (Interesting Times). Oregon Trail introduced a whole generation of school kids to the wonderful world of westward expansion. Learn about the origins of the game, how it evolved, and how it matches up to real history.
After that, learn all about Oregon’s most catastrophic cinematic flop, Paint Your Wagon! Doug Kenck-Crispin (Kick Ass Oregon History) will guide you through the chaotic and expensive production of one of the most notorious musicals off all time, made all the more infamous due to the musical stylings of Clint Eastwood himself.
Stumptown Stories, batshit crazy stories from the murkiest, weirdest, and nuttiest corners of Portland history, takes place the second Tuesday of every month at the Jack London.
Admission is free. Doors open at 7:00 PM, 21 and over only.
