In or out, and on ice

Thursday night hope you didn't miss the TONYA AND NANCY: The Rock Opera debut at the World Trade Center theater. Our loveable former ice queen-boxer-hubcap chucker attended and LOVED it.

It runs through March.

They say the rain may return, but our temps are somewhat balmy so head out if you can. I've become a fan of hanging out at the Portland living room, this weekend it's the PROFESSIONAL ICE CARVING

For Friday night - it's the Shiny Things and the Weaklings at the Tiger Bar. Only band I've ever seen there before is the Karaoke from Hell, but the stage is great and should be blasting away Broadway.

Can't stay out too late though, there are TWO big shows have tickets going on sale tomorrow morning. One, the Foo Fighters who are playing the Rose Garden on July 10.


The second, duh - it's Gordon and Declan, coming on July 11.

Saturday night may find me at Slabtown for The DTs and Pure Country Gold. Or karaoke-ing at some lounge in NE, ya just never know.

My pal Marjorie from the Merc has this for Sunday:
'The Red Light Clothing Exchange, Portland's celebrated buy-sell-trade men's and women's fashion emporium, will host their popular, annual Co-Ed Naked Shopping Spree at the Hawthorne store on Sunday, February 24.
Four contestants (2 male, 2 female, chosen from hundreds of customer entries) will strip down to nothing* at 5 pm, then have three minutes to run through the 7500 sq. ft. store - in front of hundreds of onlookers - and put on as many clothes as possible. Whoever pulls on the most garments wins everything on their body plus a $100 Red Light gift card."

Warning: Skin tight hipster pants could pose dangers in all the hubbub.

Also, if you're getting ready for Spring training - sign ups for Underdog Portland leagues are starting.
What is it?
Every mildly athletic sport you could want! Bowling, mini golf, kickball, and more. Form a team or join one. Live out your perpetual Portland adolescence.
