Pretty last minute, but some friends and I are headed to Portland tonight for the weekend. We are staying by the convention center if that helps. We have a basic plan, but if there's anything off the beaten path we should do, suggestions are welcome.
Oh and it's for a bachelor party, so nudity bar suggestions are also welcome.
Every year at Squamish the official policy is that there's no booze allowed in the campground (it's a park, liquor laws... Blah blah) but every year I walk in holding a flat of beer and the dudes just look and my wristband and I walk in.
It won't be enforced at all. Technically last year (2008) booze weren't allowed at all. They didn't seem to care for the most part.
all I can think about now is how well that show would have gone over at the Gorge.
So much fucking this. That show was amazing but seated venues can bite my balls. We were in the very back row because the Vancouver show had been on sale for like a month before Julysquatch was cancelled, so I was left with limited options when buying.
People showed up late as can be expected and the ushers had to use their lights and direct people to their seats. I have no idea what happened, but a fight almost broke out, a girl screamed and left, security came and kicked a dude out, let him back in, kicked him out, let him back in and kicked him out again. All the while the security guard was standing basically behind me so drinking the smuggled booze was all but impossible except when he would go to confiscate a joint from a dude (who continued to smoke it as he was being kicked out, which was actually pretty awesome). I wanted to stand up and dance, but the seats were in the way and no one else was standing.
Again, the show was fantastic and I loved it, but I spent a good chunk of time thinking how it would have been 100x better at Sasquatch.
Oh and then we saw Fuck Buttons who were also fantastic. There was probably only 150 people there, which I found very weird since that club probably holds 3x that many people.
This has been davers rants about how Julysquatch was cancelled.
The two in Vancouver are related as far as I know. Just because it is Spanish for Taco Shop doesn't mean anyone can use it (I think). Pizza Hut is English for 'Pizza Hut' but there is still only one company using that name.
