PDX OPERAbeat's Blog


Last Friday, August 26, we set up shop out on our patio with baskets of pretzels and peanuts, a couple kegs of Widmer beer, and a PA system blasting opera. And these signs:

Why? It was our Bikes, Beer, Big Night event! Once a year we like to take advantage of our great real estate -- our patio backs onto the Eastbank Esplanade -- and hand out free beers and snacks to the cyclists, runners, and pedestrians who pass by our doors. We pump up the opera, pull out the patio tables, and enjoy the sunshine!

Generally the biggest hurdle is getting people to understand that FREE BEER means … free beer. Totally, no-strings-attached, free. We give out beers because we love you.

It was another beautiful day, and we had a great crowd.
