That’s what our Thursday looks like. It could be what yours looks like, too.
– First the kickball. No, the FoPo Pirates haven’t returned just yet, but a group of kickballers are organizing regular games at Kern Park. There’s a game tonight, and anyone is welcome. A couple points: where were these guys when FoPo was getting ganged up on last week by Creston-Kenilworth and their comrades from Lents and Woodstock? Also, I really hope these guys coincidentally don pirate gear. Game’s at 6:30 tonight.
– Cascade Organic will be back at N.W.I.P.A. tonight. From 5 – 8 p.m., the bottle shop will become part Organic Market, with local produce, fresh seafood and wild mushrooms for sale. Show them that Foster can support a local and organic market (while simultaneously avoiding the ickiness of Fred Meyer’s produce section).
– Finally, O’Malley’s Macro Brewfest commences today. This is to celebrate “the beers that everyone drinks but is afraid to admit.” So own your shitty-beer-drinking ways and get down to O’Malley’s. The three-day event begins with live comedy tonight, continuing with Funk tomorrow and Rock night on Saturday. Meanwhile, 14 beers will be on hand for a taste test competition. You can get a $7.00 beer pass that gets you four tall boys of the beer of your choosing. One beer pass a day gets you damn near through all 14 beers. Not bad.
