From Leigh Feldman:

Portland Weekend EventsThings I'm currently jocking…

The fact that it's Father's Day on Sunday! As a young child (read: ages 4-26) I used to go into his closet and gift wrap something he already owned and give it to him. This year I got him something much better .. Congrats you're gonna be a grandfather!! Just kidding. No child yet, but I would like to take this chance to tell you how wonderful you are Dad and hope that everyone here does the same on Sunday, not just for their father, but for anyone and everyone around them that they love.

Free music ish… This mix from DJ 208, who held it down at the Michael Jordan party recently. It's pretty partytastic – http://tinyurl.com/nk8lhh

All the weird stuff going on this weekend — Swinger Clubs, Air Sex, Bike Rides, Free Beer Events, Fashion Shows, Dominatrix led Comedy Events. This city is fantastic. PS — I finally got twitter and will talking about all the things I see. @leighfeldman3. I promise it will be absolutely ridiculous.

Life is a party, everyone is just waiting to be invited.
See you all out and about!
