We’re back for another round of Portland history. Start 2016 off by stuffing your head with art drugs!
Joe Streckert (Interesting Times) will get into the nitty-gritty of Portland’s plentiful public art, share the stories behind a number of high-profile pieces, and tell you why Portland has so damn much open air statuary.
Finn JD John (Offbeat Oregon History) will dive into the history of opium in Portland Oregon, from smoking to smuggling to how the law dealt with it. Current legislation prevents him from giving out samples, but the Jack London has plenty of booze on hand.
Stumptown Stories, batshit crazy stories from the murkiest, weirdest, and nuttiest corners of Portland history, takes place the second Tuesday of every month at the Jack London.
Admission is free. Doors open at 6:30 PM, 21 and over only.
