Ok, we might be on to something here, folks: high-50’s this weekend, a good amount of sun, and then hitting the low-60’s by midweek. Perhaps spring really is here! Enjoy, y’all…
Here are your weekend tidbits:
– Has anyone been to Futpool Portland since its opening? We’re curious how the gaming goes.
– Speaking of Futpool Portland, we thought we’d throw some love toward that small stretch of businesses that occupy the 6900 block of Foster. If you need skateboard apparel, art, clothing, vintage/retro furniture, wanna catch live music or televised soccer, get your dog groomed, or play futpool, that stretch has you covered. Much love to I Heart Retro, SMART Collective, and Pupdo’s Pet Grooming for holding down that part of the strip for the last couple years. And best of luck to Futpool Portland as they join them.
– Some of you may have noticed the canopy that is now covering the outdoor patio at Bar Maven. It’s a welcome addition until the rain fades away. And more immediately, too, it will help ensure the patio can host such events as Ninkasi’s Dino Patio Party this Saturday. Check ’em out for some dinosaur-themed double IPAs, as well as a couple new beers they’ve concocted. Plus swag.
– For the runners out there…the FoPo Run Club wants you! Here’s a description from the group, who asked to share the love with you all:
“We are a new Run Club in Foster-Powell!! We run “the wedge” aka the Foster-Powell triangle every Wednesday at 6:30 pm. We start at Starday Tavern, and runners have the option of doing a 2.5 (mile) triangle or 4.5 (mile) triangle route. All paces are welcomed.
“On the last Wednesday of the month we switch things up and start/end at a local restaurant.
“We are a group of runners that supports our local community and embraces everything about our neighborhood. We live/work/play in Southeast Portland, and we call FoPo (and the surrounding neighborhoods) our home.
“Look for us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as FoPo Run Club.”
