I LOVE CATS AND DRINKING PARTY
What the world needs now, is meow, sweet meow! Paw it in, and let your fur flag fly, loud and proud, at the First Thursday, August 1st edition of I LOVE CATS. AND DRINKING, at Valentine's Bar (232 SW Ankeny Alley, between 2nd and 3rd, by Voodoo Doughnut), 5pm-8pm, followed by an exclusive listening party for ILCAD's guest of honor, Fernando Viciconte's new album, Traitors Table. An eclectic DJ Meow dance party rounds out the rest of the evening. No cover!
BarFly presents an anodyne for our troubled times - our cat-themed happy hour, "I LOVE CATS. AND DRINKING!"
ILCAD is a safe space to talk cats, put politics, and everything else aside, and get to know new people who share your deepest passions - cats, and drinking!
"I LOVE CATS. AND DRINKING" (a.k.a. ILCAD) is a cat-themed happy hour pop-up party, with cat-themed games, like "Name That Meow," plus feline-centric trivia, and diverse entertainments, like "Meoweoke" (lyrics, shmyrics! Meow your favorite songs!), "Drunk Cat Story" (a la "Drunk History", but all about cats!), and, of course, cat-themed drink specials!
This edition of ILCAD will see the debut of "Behind the Meowsic!" Behind the Meowsic is a live interview segment with rockstars baring their feline-loving souls, in conversation with ILCAD's hostess with the mostess, Jen Lane.
Behind the Meowsic's first-ever guest is none other than Portland's own (via Argentina!), Fernando Viciconte!
You already know and love Fernando for his haunting voice, critically-acclaimed albums, and mesmerizing live performances, but did you know that this 2016 Oregon Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inductee keeps a photo journal of all the cats he meets on the road when he's touring? Or that he and his lovely wife, Kristen, have dramatically rescued several of their own cats from the most perilous of circumstances?
'Tis true! Happily, Fernando's not just a great singer, songwriter, and cat rescuer, he's a world-class raconteur, and you'll be thoroughly charmed by his deep cat-chat!
You'll also have the opportunity to hear (and purchase!) Fernando's latest album, Traitors Table, hot-off-the-presses!
The Traitors Table listening party will immediately follow ILCAD, and then DJ Meow will get you into the groove with one of her signature, most eclectic, dance parties, for the rest of the evening.
Paw it in, and let your fur flag fly, loud and proud, at I LOVE CATS. AND DRINKING!
ILCAD's contests and games feature fabulous prizes, like gift certificates from Voodoo Doughnut, Dante's and Star Theater, BarFly Bus Tour gift certificates, and what are sure to be the most pounceable prizes - gift packs of handmade catnip toys from our first 100% cat-centric sponsor, RADD THINGS!
A picture speaks a thousand purrs, so feast your eyes on this:
Yes, those are handmade "magic mushroom" and "loaded bowl" CATNIP TOYS! Meowie wowie, indeed!
