From Leigh Feldman:

Portland Weekend EventsThings I'm currently jocking…

Free entry to Snap! the 90's Dance Party @ Holocene before 11pm on Friday night. Get your 90's neon on and dance…. Free entry to Massive on Saturday at the Crown Room if you say ‘LifeisaParty' before 10pm. There are dj's, designers, a dance party, a fashion show, a PBR wheel and lots of (model) mayhem. This is absolutely one of the best parties in the city!…. Free champagne at the Bella Foccia Anniversary Party. Tell them LifeisaParty sent you! … Free craziness at Last Thursday on Alberta. Talking to some of the organizers it sounds like it's gonna be madness!!!

Free music ish… This mix from DJ Ayres who will be destroying the dancefloor at Massive on Saturday night at the Crown Room. If you don't know DJ Ayres, he's most known for his role in the party The Rub, his remixes for house hold name artists like Jay-Z and Madonna and this is It's his recent ‘Dance Till You're Dead Mix' –http://therub.crewcial.org/DanceTilYoureDead.mp3

The satisfaction of knowing that someone from PDX should/could/and probably would win this … http://www.worldbeardchampionships.com/

PS — I finally got twitter and will be talking about all the things I see. Twitter.com/leighfeldman3. I promise it will be absolutely ridiculous.

Life is a party, everyone is just waiting to be invited.
See you all out and about! Leigh Feldman
