FEBRUARY 14, 8 PM
What are you doing for Valentine’s Day? Hollywood Theatre series programmer Eden Dawn and her husband, Ashod Simonian, in partnership with Tender Loving Empire, invite you to a one night only virtual storytelling event celebrating the launch of their just-published guidebook, The Portland Book of Dates.
BAD DATES promises deliciously cringe-worthy storytelling that will make your lockdown Valentine’s plans a night to remember. Featuring interviews with married duo Colin Meloy (musician, The Decemberists!) and Carson Ellis (illustrator!) Poison Waters (Portland’s busiest drag queen!), Laura Gibson (songstress!), Dave Depper (musician, Death Cab for Cutie!), B. Frayn Masters (Host/Producer of BackFencePDX live storytelling!), Tra’Renee Chambers (JAM’N 107.5 DJ and podcast host of Situations & Conversations!), and MORE discussing dates that went south. The hosts will also let you in on some of their favorite local adventures from the book to add to your 2021 bucket list. Grab some takeout from a locally-owned biz and make a night of it!
100% of ticket sales go to the Hollywood’s Resiliency Fund and each purchase enters you to win a signed copy of The Portland Book of Dates.
