Bombs, Vice, and Little Beirut, the latest installment of the venerable Stumptown Stories series, kicks off at 7 PM on Tuesday, July 14 at Jack London bar (basement of the Rialto, SW 4th and Alder).
Join us for a night of kabooms, vice raids, and protests at the Jack London Bar. Our squad of history nerds has a full night of factoids and stories for you for July such as: . . .
–Heather Arndt Anderson (Breakfast: A History, and Portland: A Food Biography) on the Vice Clique Scandal, which rocked Portland’s gay underground.
-Host Joe Streckert (Interesting Times) on why this city was once called “Little Beirut.”
Stumptown Stories, batshit crazy stories from the murkiest, weirdest, and nuttiest corners of Portland history, takes place the second Tuesday of every month at Jack London bar (basement of the Rialto, SW 4th and Alder).
Update: Heather Arndt Anderson informs me that Finn J.D. John (Offbeat Oregon History) has stepped in for J.B. Fisher, who is unable to attend this month’s Stumptown Stories.
