Courtney’s Books: 1775

20131128-01145

Well would ya look at that. I’m back in. So as far as I can tell, 1775 was a really long and boring year….so far.
The most interesting part I’m finding is that it gets me to wondering which makes humankind smaller, meaner, uglier, and stupider: politics or religion?

I’m leaning towards religion but as I’m in the South I will sooner or later be confronted with FOX News and that’s always a real scale-tipper on the side of politics making us ugly, stupid, cruel etc.

Don’t they realize that tv is for watching football?

But what do I know.

Ho hum, Happy Thanksgiving everybody.

CTT: Portland vs. Pizza

Pizza?

As you can see from the orangey-red spot right down there near the tip, this is not a “white” pizza, this is supposed to be a normal slice of cheese pie cut in half. I’m finding that not only do small towns tend to like their pizza to be triangles of cheesebread, but so does Portland.

SO IF you are in Portland and like sauce on your pizza, I’ve found that the best I’ve had (so far) is:
Escape From New York Pizza on NW 23rd and Hoyt. It is indistinguishable from Stromboli or St Mark’s style New York slice.

Dates Added: Portland Holiday Shows December 14 & 15

The Dandy Warhols Holiday Shows 2013

We’ll soon be back, and in greater numbers.

We had such a great time last year that the folks at McMenamins brought us back again for one of our fancy pants dinner and show nights. Saturday, December 14th, at the Mission Theater in NW Portland it’s The Dandys Dinner and Show Show. This year we’ve got a five-course dinner created by Black Rabbit executive chef Kenny Giambalvo, with accompanying wines chosen by Mr. Courtney Taylor-Taylor. And then after the dinner, it’s a silent film presentation with live score by The Dandy Warhols. This event is strictly for ages twenty-one and over and your dressing your best would be greatly appreciated.

Then, Haaaappy Biiiirthday! Who’s ready for some spankings? Oh, we are. We’re turning the big two-oh in 2014 and we’re celebratin’ early with our annual holly-day shindig Sunday December 15th at the Crystal Ballroom – who just so happens to be celebrating, too – one hundred years! Yes, like the Cure song. Join us, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Modern Kin, and Bloco Alegria on the Crystal’s bouncy-bounce dance floor as we toast the holiday season with mirth and music. Then, after the show, join Zia (DJ Rescue) downstairs at Lola’s Room for a 21+ dance party that’s probably going to be pretty ridiculous. (all-ages/$20adv.)

TICKETS
12/14 – MISSION DINNER + SHOW (21+) SOLD OUT
12/14 – MISSION SHOW ONLY (21+)
12/15 – CRYSTAL BALLROOM (All Ages)

See ya.
