Think & Drink with John Frohnmayer at Rontoms | Feb 11

Statesman and author John Frohnmayer will be at Rontoms this John FrohnmayerWednesday to talk about how capitalism rubs democracy the wrong way. Frohnmayer received his appointment to chair the National Endowment for the Arts in 1989. He served during the controversy surrounding arts funding, most visibly around Robert Mapplethorpe. Pressured by the religious right and Pat Buchanan, Frohnmayer was asked to resign in 1992.

He is the author of Leaving Town Alive: Confessions of an arts warrior. Houghton Mifflin.(1993)

The Oregon Council for the Humanities sponsors the happy hour conversation with John Frohnmayer. This event is free and open to the public. John Frohnmayer’s brother, David B. Frohnmayer, is president of the University of Oregon and former Oregon Attorney General.

Rontoms free Sunday shows kicks off Feb 24 with Sea caves

Special performance by SEA CAVES
Rontoms – 600 E Burnside, Portland, OR 97214
Sunday, February 24 at 9:30PM

SPECTRE is helping to get the word out about a fantastic new concert series at Rontoms on E Burnside. Each Sunday, a local band or artist will take the stage for a FREE show. It’s local, it’s free, and it’s all happening in an amazing bar nestled within walking distance of all the buslines– just in case you find yourself stumbling home. What more can you ask for?

Rontoms is a warm-n-cozy bar located in Inner East Burnside. Designed to resemble a sunken, couch-lined living room, the bar’s space is perfect for gathering friends together to enjoy music, cocktails, snacks, and conversation.

Novmber 4: The Barfly Nominees are in and The Award Show is Today at Mt. Tabor Legacy

This is an invite-only event. Normally, I would not post invite-only here, but it was already on the Barfly website, and hey–you might know one of these people and possibly mooch one of their VIP tix…I mean, congratulate them. And why am I not up for “Most Good Writer”–sounds like it was written specifically for my illiteracy (rhyming on-timing!). 

My lovely fall sickness seems to be nearly gone (the contagion is for sure), so I’m going to do my best to get out there tonight as several of these people are friends of mine (Atom 13, Malice, Chris Haberman, Phil Ragaway, William Slater – “hottest item not on the menu”= ha!). If so, expect some good pictures this coming week.

Now Non-contagious, Julian

Da Mayor and Crew Go Biking & Bikes vs. Cars

Another cool biking article from Jonathan Former Mayors Vera Katz and Bud Clark riding…great

The meaning of last Friday’s Tour of Tomorrow bike ride can be summed up by one simple fact: a majority of the Metro Council (4 of 7 members) rode the entire 40 mile, bi-state route…READ MORE

Also, Jonathan is going to be in the Portland Mercury’s Car vs. Bike debate at Rontoms (they have a Ping-Pong table). From Jonathan on this debate:

Despite the Mercury’s attempts to start a fight between us I plan to enter this event with a cooperative spirit. There are challenges in creating a safe, balanced and efficient transportation network and the solution must include the needs of all users.
