    I would love to attend a night event! One of my passions is learning, and having fun at the same time, and this seems to take the cake!
    I miss going and looking at art, and Im curious about the artist inspired drinks.

  33. TJ Norris May 23, 2013 at 3:34 pm #

    Ansel Adams was my original inspiration to become a photographer when I was a kid. I learned so much about the technical aspects of my craft because of his grayscale teachings. And Ruby Jewel, come on, the best in PDX bar none!

  34. Phil May 23, 2013 at 3:50 pm #

    Ansel Adams is easily my favorite photographer. I saw the last Ansel Adams exhibit that came to the forestry center and it was awesome!

  37. Andrea May 23, 2013 at 4:00 pm #

    My brother is an amazing photographer. He named his dog Ansel after his favorite photographer. Today is my brothers 49th birthday. And he’s my favorite brother. See, it all works. Sorta . . . Did I mention I’ve been unemployed for 413 days, give or take . . . not that I’m counting. Or pathetic . . .

  38. Dom May 23, 2013 at 4:12 pm #

    Love me some Ansel Adams, yes please! :)
