Relax this first weekend after the holiday season. Sure Friday night go see The Muppet Movie, but spend Saturday or Sunday contemplating at the Lan Su Chinese Garden, which features free admission all weekend. Save your energy for Monday, when the Oregon Ducks play for a national championship!
The doors of the Bagdad Theater (3702 SE Hawthorne) open at 10pm on Friday, January 7. Film starts at 11pm. Admission is a mere $3, and you have to be 21 or over!

Portland’s Lan Su Chinese Garden (NW 3rd and Everett) is offering free admission for eight days from Sunday, January 2 through Sunday, January 9, 2011.

In addition to the sports bars, several larger local venues will be presenting the game live: [more]
