Please let me promote your organization’s events as much as I do the ones I know well.

Instead of a First Friday for July, Milepost 5 (where I live and volunteer) is having an opening reception (FB invitation) for a group show tonight. “Typos” feature work from five Portland-based artists: Abigail Freed, August Stanley, Erin Law, Frankie Bruiser, Shay Myerson. There is one typo in this paragraph; since I’m a one-man shop sans editors beyond myself, let this be the first 10 cent typo bounty.

“There will be food and refreshments and possibly live music (TBD)!”

Milepost 5 Gallery, 850 NE 81st * 7 pm – 10 pm * free 


Pepper Grinders (FB profile) play at O’Neill Public House.

“Using the cream of the crop of amazing Portland players, the band is dedicated to the sound of the jump blues bands and the screaming sax greats from the late 40s and early 50s.”

O’Neill Public House * 9:30 pm – 1 am * free 


The last day to sign up (here) for the Lents Garage sale is July 5th. It will be held Saturday, July 15, from 9 am – 3 pm.

“The Lents Neighborhood Garage Sale is a new neighborhood-wide event made up of many individual garage sales hosted at participating homes or businesses. This one-day event provides the opportunity for Lents residents (the boundary is the 97266 zip code) to add their sale to our Garage SaleMap that will be available both in print and online. On the day of the sale, shoppers can access multiple sales, meet neighbors, and explore the neighborhood!”



“Talk Time is an informal conversation circle for non-native speakers to practice speaking English. First come, first served.”

Berry Bash at the Lents Farmers Market:

“Join us in a celebration of berry season at Lents International Farmers Market! Every half hour local children’s book author, Lisa Wilke, will read from her new book, The Pie Contest. We’ll also have a strawberry photo booth, a berry-based activity for Food Scouts, and a demonstration booth with a variety of berry-showcasing recipe samples. Don’t miss this berry special market day!”
