Life is a Party-

Growing up Auntie Mame taught me me to live, live live say is often remembered for the line, "Life' s a Banquet" and weekly now Leigh Feldman reminds me. " LifeIsAParty !"
Here is a portion of Leigh's Weekend What to do: sorry I cut this out as what I think you need to know- The Email: Intro - cut 1. cut
2. Drink specials. The Townbombing party at Tube on Friday night is
giving you .50 cents off your drinks if you bring your own re-usable
mug. Can’t beat that. Plus it’s a dope free dance party.
3. Breakdancing. The b-boys and b-girls will be in full effect at the
So Fresh So Clean party on Saturday night at PSU. It’s a benefit event
for the Oregon Food Bank and it starts early, which means you’ll have
plenty of time to hit up any birthday shindigs or free parties you
have planned for the late night.
4. Cut- (you should know about PDXPipeling) 5. This live Stevie Wonder performance that you can download for free. If this recording isn’t for you, you are not for me …
