Happy Memorial Day, I'm already enjoying summer, writing this in the garden! No matter what you do this weekend, remember you can do more on Sunday, since you're probably off on Monday. Whether you dance or brunch at Scandals Pdx, dance at A Templez Bar (Temporary Lesbian Bar) at Mississippi Pizza Pub, head to one of CC Slaughter’s regular events or their naughty Vintage Porn Party, soar on over to the Eagle Portland for Lure, Bangcock, or their SundayBBQ, get Tori, Spooky, or Skethcy at Crush Bar, keep it local at Local Lounge (Official), or attend community-focused events at Q Center there's something for everybody to do! If you head to the Coast or the mountains this weekend, lucky you! Have fun! If you just wanna stay home to Netflix and chill...don't worry! I've got that list coming to you by Friday!
As always, if you have any weekend events to promote email firstname.lastname@example.org the Monday before your upcoming event or party! Thanks!
