Weekend Happenings

This week we’re nursing out sunburnt flesh back to health. Meanwhile we’re praying for more sun. Let’s hear it for Spring! And summer. And sunshine! (And sunblock.) Happening this week:

  • Like most Portlanders, we’re big fans of eating out. Join Dining Out for Life for its 4th Portland event on Thursday April 26th and you can get more satisfaction than just a full tum-tum. Participating Portland restaurants (say that five times fast!) will donate 20-30% of your bill to EMO’s HIV Day Center and Partnership Project, both of which provide vital services to thousands of people living with HIV/AIDS. Get your grub on at any of these participating restaurants for breakfast, lunch, dinner or cocktail hour and help save lives.

  • Test your vocabulary (and your sense of humor) this Thursday April 26th at ComedySportz with Rumblebee’s Revenge: Comedic Spelling Bee from 7:30 to 9:30PM. Local improv comedians Alex Falcone, Scott Simon and Hadas Cassoria will host a whirlwind of challengingly themed rounds for a cast of amateur contestants encouraged by the house cheerleaders, The Spell’s Belles. The $10 admission for participants, $15 for spectators and $20 for VIP will benefit Speaking Out on Sibling Sexual Abuse, a local nonprofit dedicated to support survivors of sexual abuse.
  • Hear ye, hear ye! Lend me your ears! The 18th Annual Class Act takes place this Friday April 27th at The Old Church at 7:30PM. Strum your soul strings to 50 minutes of blues, played by Oregon Music Hall of Fame member Norman Sylvester and his band. Following the performance, guests will tune into a savory reception and decadent dessert to benefit the Bill & Ann Shepherd Legal Scholarship Fund of Equity Foundation, which assists 3rd and 4th year law students dedicated to fighting LGBT discrimination. Admission is $40 in advance and $50 at the door.
  • Get a new perspective on prom at the Clackamas Community College Saturday April 28th- The Living
