It’s that time of year again. Kick off the winter snow season in style at the Big Chill ‘12, a celebration of the best of the Northwest presented by Widmer Brothers Brewing. On Friday, November 16, join Widmer Brothers for an evening of local craft beer — including Brrr, the brewery’s winter seasonal — music, art and fashion at Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge, beginning at 9 p.m.
Checkout the latest winter styles in a snowboarding and winter apparel themed fashion show produced by Portland’s Jillian Rabe, LLC featuring looks from: US Outdoor Store, Galore, Aedion Aesthetic, Compound, and Funsie.
The silent auction is back again this year and benefits Snowdays Foundation, a local non-profit whose mission is to empower Portland metro area youth through snowboarding. Local artists have been asked to create winter-themed works of art from used snowboards donated by Mt. Hood Meadows, which will be displayed on-site in the artist gallery. Guests at the Big Chill will be asked to vote on their favorite works of art and winning artists will receive prizes including a custom-designed snowboard, Mt. Hood Meadows lift tickets, or a weekend getaway to Sunriver Resort.
Snow-junkies can also get their pictures taken at the Big Chill photo booth, provided by Usnaps, while warming up with a pint of cold Brrr.
Custom Widmer Brothers glassware for the event will be free with the purchase of a Brrr Seasonal Ale, while supplies last.
