Holy shit there’s a lot to do this weekend! Usually I publish this weekend roundup post on Thursday, but I really think we all need some extra time this week to make our weekend plans. We have multiple beer, music, and street fair events, in addition to a Timbers match and the July Sunday Parkways.
The first annual PDX.FM Unicorn Pub Crawl takes place Friday, July 16th on North Mississippi Avenue.
“Calling all of the demented, fanciful, whimsical, and unparalleled inhabitants of the ancient unicorn burial ground also known as Portland, Oregon…” [more]
It’s a weekend in July, so of course there’s a beer fest: the Portland International Beer Festival starts Friday, July 16th and continues through Sunday, July 18th (Friday 4pm-10pm, Saturday 12pm-10pm, Sunday 12pm-7pm). [more]
The Big Busk 2010 takes place Saturday, July 17th in downtown Portland. What exactly is the Big Busk?
“The idea is, for an entire afternoon, to saturate downtown with music. All kinds of music. Up and down Broadway, the transit mall, the park blocks to the esplanade.” [more]
The Bee reports that “all the fun is on Woodstock Boulevard from S.E. 41st eastward; the parade forms at Our Lady of Sorrows at S.E. 52nd at Woodstock Boulevard, and travels west to the disband area near All Saints’ Episcopal Church.” [more]
Pix will, of course, be offering french pastries. Next door neighbors Fifth Quardrant will be hosting a beer garden, there will also be ice cream, a 60 pound Carlton Farms roasted pig, and a Champagne and Oyster Bar! [more]
The 31 man traveling roster for Manchester City includes three players who represented their countries in the 2010 World Cup finals: Shaun Wright-Phillips (England), Kolo Toure and midfielder Yaya Toure (Ivory Coast). [more]
The third Sunday Parkways of 2010 takes place this Sunday, July 18th in East Portland. Take the opportunity to spend a pleasant summery Sunday morning and afternoon (10am to 3pm) winding your way on bike or foot through the mostly residential, car free, streets of East Portland. The routes take you from one park to the next, where you can check out the vendors and demonstrations, or just sit down and relax. [more]
The second annual Ramona Street Fair takes place Sunday, July 18th.
“The event features food, music, craft vendors and information booths. It also links the I-205 path — which is open for cyclists and pedestrians — to the Lents International Farmers Market and the Lents Town Center commercial district.” [more]
