The Stumptown Stories series, geared to everyone who loves this city we live in, takes place most Tuesdays at Jack London bar (basement of the Rialto, SW 4th and Alder). Free to get in, but must be 21 or over – there’s a full bar!
The inaugural 2012 installment takes place this Tuesday, January 3. The topic is Mythology of Daily Life or “How Beer Saved the World.”
Mythologist Kate Bruner defines myth and speaks to how it has affected much of daily lives. Learn why a coward is called, “yellow” and what African mythology has to do with Bugs Bunny, along with why we use the term “werewolf” instead of “manwolf”.
Doors open at 5pm for this free event (21 and over only). Presentation begins at 7:30pm.
