Caught on Camera and your Weekend Events

March is upon us and with it warmer and longer days.  We gain over an hour and a half of daylight this month!  Great motivation to get out and enjoy the neighborhood…

But before diving into your weekend events, here’s some photos of the Foster Corridor Investment Strategy open house this week.  Beyond the pages of plans I’m sure we’ll tackle in greater detail in a future post, it was great to see the Wikman-Arleta Building full of friends and neighbors and to be treated to amazing food from the Portland Mercado, thank you!

 

Friday

tt-001Celebrate Space Monkey’s 2nd year anniversary with First Friday featured Artists Alexis and Leif Jenssen, live music, pastries and a keg of of locally crafted beer by Captured by Porches.

Your live music Friday also includes Bolt Upright at Cadigan’s, Junkyard Dogs & Sonic Temple at the New Copper Penny and Rule of the Bone at The Lodge.

Movies?  But of course, kungfufridaysit’s Kung Fu Fridays double feature at Bar Carlo!  The Eunuch at 7 and The Supreme Swordsman at 9.

Comedy?  Why yes!  Check out Lezberados at the Bobwhite Theatre.  “Lezberados is a fierce and funny, hot and spicy, side-splitting comedy show featuring two of the hottest dykes on the mic working the circuit”.

Saturday

tt1-001Always a favorite, don’t miss Chess at the Holgate Library Saturdays 1-4:30 pm, a local tradition since 1971.  Also, it’s the monthly first Saturday guided tour at Leach Botanical Garden 11am-noon.

Dennis 7 Dees is getting us ready for spring and sharpening up our tools, testing soil, and teaching how to prune.  No wonder we all are rockstar gardeners around here…

Friends of Trees are visiting the Montavilla and Mt. Tabor neighborhoods this weekend, bringing with them 230 trees and an army of bike riding volunteers!

Once Upon a Time Family Theatre is back with Puss ‘n Boots at Portland Metro Arts in Montavilla, just $2 for adults and $1 buck for kids.  Enjoy a “magical mix of theatrical simplicity and grand storytelling for chilidogkids and their parents.”

National Green Friends has a cure for the munchies with a chili dog feed for OMMP cardholders.  “Good people, good food, and good meds”.

Saturday Night

collage2The Lily Day Cafe is open at night!  (Friday/Saturday until 9pm) Snack on some Lipton Onion Dip and Chex Mix while sipping on creative cocktails like spirited coffees, red eye flights, salty chihuahua, or an orchard champagne cocktail.

If you haven’t been to Fujiyama yet, check out their revolving fresh sushi bar, teppanyaki shows, and deluxe rolls.  There is an upstairs lounge area featuring a full drink menu too!

Don’t forget, karaoke is alive and well around Foster Road hosted every Saturday night at the Eagle Eye and Cadigan’s Corner Bar.

Sunday

Get ready for Farm Fit at Zenger Farm!  This 6 week series starts Monday March 4th-April 12th, 6-7am.  Described as “using mainly our own bodyweight and the geography of the site, we’ll strengthen the core, stabilize joints and improve posture. So come on out to the farm and let’s be great, together”.

You might have noticed we’re crazy about the Foster area: huge fans of all the great happenings and events that create community and keep the fun close to home.  If you don’t see it here, we just plain missed it!  So help us out, post comments with all your discoveries and events.  If life or work pulls us away at moments, jump on in with a shout out anytime, many thanks!  xoxo.

 

Your First November Weekend

 

The passing of Halloween marks the coming of the dark months and with them, a welcomed chest full of cozy comforts to wrap up in until the push of spring daffodils break the ground.  Bubbling crock pots, hot toddies and close friends warm the belly and soul while the rain falls and the nights are long.  Light summer reads are traded for old classics and poetry, mellow music, and firelight.  And so begins the season of deep thought and drinking to lull us through the holiday marathon ahead.
