Happy Weekend, FoPo!

Just as we prepare to jump into March, we get a sweet little treat in the form of 60-degree weather.  And maybe a bit of sun!  Oh, glory…if you weren’t but a tease.  Rain, rain, and more rain after that.  And back out comes the SAD lamp.

Here are your weekend tidbits…

– We know our little corner of SE Portland is pretty rad, but we didn’t know the ‘Right 2 Dream Too’ folks would consider heading our way (though, who wouldn’t?).  As reported in the Oregonian, a lot at 51st and Powell is on the list of 22 potential sites being considered for their relocation.

Fat Yoga is starting a new intro series this Monday.  Get in while you can.

Foster Row, the budding designer collective at 53rd and Foster, is getting another addition to their corps of artists and general makers: welcome, Darling Press…we look forward to seeing your stationary and letterpress goods.

– DePave will be working on two projects in the neighborhood this summer: one for a community garden at Wild Lilac’s early childhood development center (74th and Center), the other for green space at the future Portland Mercado (72nd and Foster).

– For the bus riders out there, TriMet will be increasing midday service on the 14-Hawthorne and 9-Powell Blvd starting Monday.

– Music and happenings this weekend:
* Torta-landia- Eric Vanderwall performs Friday
* Starday Tavern- Ride Red Apple plays Friday; The HoneyCuts do the honky tonk on Saturday
* Space Monkey will be celebrating three years under current ownership this Saturday, from 6 pm – 9 pm; drinks, art, new/old friends
* Gemini Lounge- Blues Battalion plays Saturday night
* N.W.I.P.A.- Triple IPA fest, Saturday evening
* BobWhite- White Light dance party, Friday

    Thanks for the heads up about the DePave projects. They both sound like great projects for the hood.

    did Metro Express Collision Repair close? because that’s what at 5103 SE Powell on the R2DToo site list…
