    Big Chill Party

    http://www.skihood.com/Events-and-Te...y=18&category=


    Anyone been to one of these?

    Widmer Brothers Brewing Big Chill '11
    Time:9:00 PM - 1:00 AM
    Location:Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge 808 SE Morrison Ave., Portland, OR 97214
    Category:Music+Entertainment
    Organizer:Widmer Brothers Brewing
    Web Address:Big Chill '11
    Kick off the winter snow season in style at the Big Chill, a celebration of the best of the Northwest presented by Widmer Brothers Brewing. 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.
    • The night will include music from DEELAY CEELAY, a Portland-based duo that fuses live instrumentation with synched projected visuals blurring the lines between music, experimental film and performance, while creating an awesome and engaging experience for their audiences.
    •Check out the latest winter styles in a fashion show produced by Portland’s Jillian Rabe, LLC featuring winter, street and outerwear including lines from: Compound, U.S. Outdoor Store and Antic.
    •The silent auction is back this year; this time, benefitting Mountain Wave Search and Rescue! Local artists have been asked to create awesome winter-themed works of art from used snowboards, toboggans, and sleds. Guests at the Big Chill will be asked to vote on their favorite works of art and winning artists will receive prizes like a custom-designed Revolution Snowboard, Mt. Hood Meadows lift tickets, or a weekend getaway to Sunriver Resort. Attendees will also have a chance to get in on the prizes just for voting!
    •Snow-junkies can also get their pictures taken at the Big Chill photo booth while warming up with a pint of cold Brrr.

    Admission to the Big Chill ’11 is free. Custom Widmer Brothers glassware for the event will be free with the purchase of a Brrr Seasonal Ale for $3.50, while supplies last.

    Hey Bryan, I've never been, but it's in my neighborhood and "free is a very good price." Want to rally the PDX carvers?

    You read my mind Dan.

    There are a number of new alpine riders in the PDX area that I would love to introduce to some of the "Regulars".

    You be up for that?

    Sure! Friday night would probably be best for me, but I could flex either way.

    Perhaps a post on last years MHM Ride board would reach more people?

    I will personally email some of the new riders and see if they can make it.

    Hey Brian, I'm afraid I have to bow out. I initially misread the event listing and thought it was both Friday and Saturday -- I see now it's just Friday. I'm out of town until Friday and I now have some family stuff to take care of when I get back.

    If you do make it out there, please post your review of this year's Brr seasonal beer. That was the key draw for me, as you know fashion is not really my strong suit -- not sure the winter fashion show would have had much to offer me

    Hi Dan. No worries, I accidently got a job. Unfortunately it is in Hillsboro. So I am doing the 1-1/2 + drive home every night in heavy traffic. Ends up being better than a 12 day. Having not worked in months, it is a bit of a shock I think I am going to just relax when I get home for the next few weeks. Not having done construction work for a while , it is kicking my ass pretty good. Interesting, intense work, amazing site and great
    guys to work with. Enjoy the family!!

    I'll probably ride a during the weekdays. I am staying in Portland at a buddies place. I am getting a rental car so I can get around. Though while actually in Portland having a car is pretty much not needed.

    Hey it was really nice riding with you on Monday Bryan ! We had really pretty good conditions for the first day . Good soft snow with a little fresh on the groomers. Got the cobwebs out of my legs ! Nice Ninkasi tricerahops on tap at the alpenstub for apres ski ! We will have to work on our apres ski tailgating plan.

    Rode today , 10" superwet cement ! Rainsnow mix at base, planned on getting soaked! However got 8 good runs on Star top to bottom "powder" with great at the top , getting sticky at the bottom. Overall good basebuilding snow for meadows and for my riding legs !

    Hey Jim, yes!! It was a good day for sure!!! No crowds, good coverage, the snow surface was softer on the groomers than I expected. The groomed runs with a few inches on top were SWEET!!!

    Glad you got some good runs today before it got too wet. I am guessing it was more fun than I had

    Yes, plan on it!!

    Bryan

    Share the local good deals??

    Had a thought.

    Pretty sure it would not be appropriate for this thread so I started one on the "Off Topic" forum area.


    Idea? Share those really good deals you bump into in the Portland / Vancouver/ Hood River area??

    Rode Sunday with my daughter on skiis . They are starting to need a little snow with some bare spots showing on south facing slopes . The "ski" carving was pretty fun on Star . Below cascade was really nice too. Overall it was fun for my daughters first day . My ski muscles got worked .... Snow sport cross training is good for the soul!

    BTW Bryan when are you going to bodyworlds brains?
