      duh, of course I’m now seeing that this is where people comment to be considered for the free ticket give-away! I’m a little slow sometimes. Good luck for the drawing and I hope to see you there! :-D


  2. Kala December 16, 2013 at 4:42 pm #

    I’d love to go and see you guys play. I’ve been keeping an eye out for your shows and would be stoked to go to this one. However, with Christmas in the near future and having just moved, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to afford the tickets.

  3. Kim Porter December 16, 2013 at 6:08 pm #

    Pick me! Pick me!!! ;) Was in Indianapolis last year at a spectacular NYE’s party. Can PDX do as well? I’d like to find out. I suspect it could be amaze-balls.

  4. tim December 17, 2013 at 8:37 am #

    I really want to win!!

  5. James December 17, 2013 at 2:34 pm #

    Ken DeRouchie rocks. Always enjoy seeing him and his band.

  6. Jeff December 17, 2013 at 2:50 pm #

    Well…it’s been a rough past six months. Here’s to turning the corner and perhaps enjoying a rare night out with my spouse, sans the three little munchkin kids. Sounds like a really cool venue.

  7. Taylor Hewus December 17, 2013 at 4:17 pm #

    I just love getting dressed up and going out, yet I don’t have many opportunities to do so, this would be a great chance to do it big for the new year! Plus I love seafood.

  8. Tony Balogna December 17, 2013 at 5:47 pm #

    I can’t sit at home and watch Ryan Seacrest one more year. I have to get out of the house and party-down in style! I wanna dominate on some oysters…

  9. Erica December 17, 2013 at 7:26 pm #

    Though live music and fancy dress is another dreamy opportunity…! Never been out to an organized party for New Years. Hardly any parties at all it seems

  10. Veronica December 18, 2013 at 2:50 pm #

    A while ago I had made plans to spend New Years with my boyfriend, but we broke up! Now I have nothing to do, and I do not want to ring in the new year watching Gilmore Girls at home by myself. Please, I need to start 2014 fresh and this would do it!

  11. Megan Warrington December 18, 2013 at 4:12 pm #

    I would Love to attend this party with my husband, having 4 young children makes it hard to get out, I need to get out and dress up..

  12. Marie December 18, 2013 at 5:29 pm #

    Would love to go, sounds awesome!

  13. Louis December 18, 2013 at 6:54 pm #

    Yes please! I would love to go! This is our second new years together, but I had to work last year, so that was kind of lame. Thought I was going to have to work again this year, but luckily that changed.
    Winning would be awesome!

  14. john December 19, 2013 at 12:56 pm #

    I would love to go, what a great way to bring in the new year! Would love to surprise my girlfriend with tix to this! Thank you!

  20. April December 19, 2013 at 4:34 pm #

    Oyster bar!

  21. Sara December 19, 2013 at 5:17 pm #

    I have always wanted to visit the Vie de Boheme and this would be a great chance to explore. Also this will be one of my last chances to go out on NYE due to a recent delivery from the stork. :)

  22. Lizzy December 19, 2013 at 6:03 pm #

    My Mudduh is visiting from Florida and i wanted something fancy yet fun to do with her. This would be perfect, she LOVES oysters!

  23. Charlie December 19, 2013 at 8:23 pm #

    Sounds quite fancy. I want to mingle with the beautiful people.

  24. liza December 20, 2013 at 12:47 pm #

    Oh a hot date with hubby this would be!

  25. Roxy December 20, 2013 at 4:24 pm #

    Oh, Ken! If you could just see it in your heart to let my boyfriend and I boogie for you! We are well-versed in the nature of funk and soul and ever so wiggly…. Please pick us to join you in ringing in 2014!

  26. Electra Langley December 20, 2013 at 7:21 pm #


    I have just celebrated my first year here in Portland. I was deathly sick last NYE when I came down with Strep throat….needless to say, I had to stay home.

    I have never experienced a Portland New Years celebration and just found out about this event from my friend Miss Noa. I don’t have the heart to tell her that I cannot afford to go. Will you make my holiday a happy one?


  27. Chelsea Bianchi December 20, 2013 at 11:11 pm #

    This party sounds just our style! Would love to go, but after being out of work for seven months we just can’t afford it. I finally got a job, but it starts on the 6th! If you pick me I’ll really have something to celebrate!

  28. Steve December 21, 2013 at 3:33 am #

    I want to win tickets because I moved to Portland just over a month ago and want to ring in my first New Year in the city by dancing my ass off at an awesome party!

  29. mikayla smith December 21, 2013 at 9:47 pm #

    I would love to at ten because of many reasons. I just moved here from Alaska and haven’t really ever celebrated NYE plus a bunch of my coworkers are going and well they are the only people I know here and want me to go with. It would mean the world to me.

  30. tiffany December 22, 2013 at 10:43 am #

    Would love to go for a great experience!

  31. Victoria December 24, 2013 at 1:42 pm #

    This would be the first New Years my boyfriend and I would spend together after dating or a year. We will not be together next Christmas or New Years because he is an army staff sergeant and will be deployed. Also, if I get accepted to the peace corps ten I too will be gone and we won’t see each other for over 2 years. We want this New Years to be extra special seeing as its our last one together for a while.

  32. Lou S December 24, 2013 at 11:19 pm #

    Need to go! Already have work off and just want to have some fun! Worth doing math for too! (may have got it wrong the first time – admission)

  33. Audrey December 25, 2013 at 8:16 pm #

    This would be amazing!! I never get picked for anything, so please please pick me!!

  48. Caitlynn December 26, 2013 at 9:58 pm #

    This is my first New Year’s Eve being 21 and I would like to bring it in with style. My boyfriend and I are college students, so we don’t have the funds to attend on our own. We lived on different coast for over two years, so this New Year’ s Eve together will be very special.

  49. Sally December 27, 2013 at 7:00 am #

    sounds really fun!

  50. Julie December 27, 2013 at 10:45 am #
