Portland Japanese Garden Offers Teachers Some Back to School Serenity
(Last admission at 6:30pm)
More info: japanesegarden.org

We know back to school can be a hurried and stressful time for teachers and school employees. That’s why now through September 30, we’re pleased to announce that Portland Japanese Garden is offering current Portland-metro area public school employees their Student Ticket price after 5pm.

Simply show your Public School employee ID for some Back to School serenity, courtesy of one of Portland’s favorite sights.

Nestled in the West Hills of Portland, Oregon, Portland Japanese Garden provides a tranquil, urban oasis for locals and travelers alike. Designed in 1963 and expanded in 2017, it encompasses 12 acres with eight separate garden styles, and includes an authentic Japanese Tea House, meandering streams, intimate walkways, and a spectacular view of Mt. Hood. The Garden is a place to discard worldly thoughts and see oneself as a small but integral part of the universe.

The Portland Japanese Garden is a private 501(c)(3) charitable, not-for-profit organization that receives essential funding from gate admissions, retail sales, and the tax-deductible contributions of its members and donors.

It’s a Tony Starlight Christmas!

More info: tonystarlight.com

Remember the classic holiday TV shows of your childhood, when entertainers like Bing Crosby and Dean Martin spread the holiday cheer far and wide and you couldn’t help but feel the warmth and glow of the season? Now in its 12th year, It’s a Tony Starlight Christmas brings back these uplifting holiday traditions and puts a fresh, comedic spin on them.

Tony has joined forces with Bo Ayars (arranger and conductor for Liberace) to put together a music and comedy Christmas program like nothing else. No other show has swinging standards, comedy routines that lampoon Millennial and Generation X culture, impressions of Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Jimmy Durante, Neil Diamond, Louis Armstrong and more. Tony and Barbara Ayars also perform songs from such holiday specials as The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Scrooge and several of the Rankin/Bass animated specials like The Year Without A Santa Claus and Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, complete with character voices. The show is both silly and sweet and sure to put you in the holiday spirit.

This series of shows in December sells out every year!
