No joke, my weekend starts early this week, so the blog version does too!
It’s First Thursday today, of course, at galleries around town (PDX Pipeline has the scoop). But thankfully, you have several other options tonight, and all weekend . . .
7th Planet Picture Show presents Flash Gordon
Portland’s answer to MST3K, the 7th Planet Picture Show, takes place at 7pm this Thursday, April 1st at Mount Tabor Theater (4811 SE Hawthorne).
Host Will Radik will be joined by Betsy Richter (local blogger extraordinaire and host of Redoing Media) and Sabrina Miller (cohost of PDX Sucks and a million other PDX.fm shows). [more]
The season opener is mere weeks away, which makes the Timbers Army First Thursday on April 1st the last one until the season ends.
Join us at The Bitter End and hang out with some fellow Portland Timbers fans! Chat about the latest Timbers news, enjoy a few pints, and possibly even find some Timbers or Timbers Army merchandise for sale. [more]
The Cort and Fatboy Midnight Movie presents Mallrats
Celebrate the 15th anniversary of the release of Kevin Smith’s Mallrats this Friday, April 2nd, at the Cort and Fatboy Midnight Movie for April. The doors of the Bagdad (3702 SE Hawthorne) open at 10pm, film begins at 11pm. Admission is only $3, and you have to be 21 or over. [more]
The 16th annual Spring Beer & Wine Fest takes place at the Convention center (777 NE MLK) on Friday and Saturday, April 2nd and 3rd. . . .
There are about a million vendors (okay maybe I exaggerate a bit – but there are a lot), beer and wine competitions, a Tour de Cheese and Chocolatiers, and live music.
Some sort of religious holiday occurs this weekend, but the big holiday is Saturday’s World Party Day: the annual celebration of globally synchronized events for a happy world.
World Party Day! Seriously!
I should say that’s plenty of stuff to do this weekend, but if you’re looking for more, the usual suspects have your back: Around the Sun, Blogging Portland on the Cheap, and PDX Pipeline!
Thanks for the link to Flash Gordon! We’re planning on going! See you there?
Lise – Enjoy Flash Gordon, 7th Planet Picture Show style. We’re stopping in at the Timbers Army First Thursday thing tonight, but then home – we’re heading out of town for the weekend and have to get up early tomorrow to catch a train!
