February 14th is Oregon’s birthday! And to celebrate, Stumptown Stories is bringing more historic tales of Portland’s past…with cake! It’s also the day after Lunar New Year begins, so Heather Arndt Anderson will be talking about the history of Chinese food in Portland. JB Fisher will be regaling us with tales of Jimmy Valentine and the notorious Brice child kidnapping attempt in the mid-1950s. A good time will be had by all! And much learniness!
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 7:00 PM, 21 and over only.
