Sustainable Industries Forum | Sam Adams, Burgerville | October 14

There are still a few days left to register for the Sustainable Forums conference here in Portland. Mayor-elect Sam Adams is a featured speaker and the CEO of Burgerville is a panelist. Obviously, we here are big proponents of sustainability in Portland not just because it is often the right thing to do morally and environmentally, but–like this purpose behind this conference–it is good for our local economy.

Anyway, hopefully this will be a good chance to see the future of this industry in our region. I hope so, because I had to use a vacation day. :)

Info from the press release:

sustainable industries forum, portlandIn a stormy and unprecedented economic climate, businesses large and small are pursuing economic advantage through ambitious environmental innovation and social responsibility. The West Coast — Portland, Seattle and San Francisco in particular — is home to successful business thought leaders who have long understood the economic potential of sustainability. Still, tough viability questions and real economic context are sorely lacking, as are authentic, inspirational events that capture the true opportunity in going “beyond green.”

REGISTER NOW!

The event is being held at the Portland Art Museum.

March 6: First Thursday | I Love Mr. T Party | Moshi Moshi

I saw this a while back and put it in the files. I have written to Moshi Moshi a couple times to confirm, but they aren’t updating their blog and haven’t responded on the the ‘space, and the phone was disconnected. But, if you are out tomorrow on the First Thursday prowl  (great weather!), this is something you might want to check out as I assume it is still happening.

PLUS, you get to help out the kids!

Mr. T Party, Moshi Moshi, Burnside, Portland, Oregon

Moshi Moshi will be closed through most of the month of February and will reopen on Thursday March 6th for a Mr. T themed group art show at 916 West Burnside, right in the heart of downtown Portland. A lot of great people are contributing pieces and a portion of the proceeds will go the Opal Creek Scholarship fund for Buckman Elementary School. This is so kids that may not otherwise be able to afford it can go on a great field trip to Opal Creek and have a great time while learning something worthwhile.

 :: Dec. 15 | ScratchPDX

Hey all,

Just a quick note to say thanks to those who were part of the sell-out crowd at November’s ScratchPDX, the opener of our new season. The season got off to a great start with seven dazzling and challenging performances from up-and-coming artists in Portland. Check out the website http://www.scratchpdx.com to see pictures and details of the line-up.

We are gathering pace for the second show (Dec 15th), and already all the slots are filled! However if you are interested in performing at Scratch, we are currently looking for pieces for our January and February shows, so drop us an email at contact@scratchpdx.com with your rough idea. Please include type of performance, number of participants and estimated length.

Dec 12 | Red Bull Flight Club at Aura | “journey to the party cities of the world”

journey to the party cities of the world, aura, portland, pdx, Burnside, West Portland, Red Bull, Flight Club, Djs, Dj Evilone, flight number 503, DJ Mark Vane, DJ Irie,

I haven’t been to Aura for a club event (just to speed date--yep–did it…thrice, thanks Ted), but this event looks like an interesting party. I really can’t exactly tell what happens, but here is a message about it from Alastair at Red Bull:

It’s a musical experience and journey to the party cities of the world –
Ibiza, Rio and New York. You’ll get the experience of flying to the various
cities and enjoying the musical tastes and feel of those cities.

cheers,
aL

Plus, you can watch this rather long flash movie (I believe it takes just under half your lunch break to get to the info depending on how many Schrute you have saved up) on Aura’s site. If you are not a fan of flash unless it is being used to stream video–BOOM-here is a Youtube video of one of these events in Kansas City.
