Ring in 2018 at Portland’s Most Famous New Year’s Eve Party Champagne Ball in Downtown! | 17 Bars, 3 Dance Floors, Black Tie, Toast & Count

2018 Champagne Ball
Hilton Portland Downtown
21+
Tickets: champagneball.com

You’re invited to Portland’s Most Famous New Year’s Eve Party!

On December 31, 1990, Champagne Ball Mathew Weber went out to celebrate New Year’s Eve. He hit a local hot spot where he waited in long lines to get a drink. He couldn’t find his friends or a place to sit.

He still remembers standing a super crowded bar thinking that New Year’s Eve is special night; that people should dress up, that they should be able to get a drink quickly and most importantly that people ought to have fun!

The next year Weber threw a New Year’s Eve party at the East Bank Saloon, 115 people showed up and the Champagne Ball was born. Twenty-seven years later the Champagne Ball has outgrown three venues including the Portland Marriott and The Governor Hotel (The Sentinel) and since 2000 the event has made its home at the Hilton Portland Downtown.

Throughout the years Weber has done his best to hold true to the core values that have made the party such a success; make it fun, have plenty of bars, hire excellent entertainment and require that people dress for the occasion.

A massive count down and plenty of party favors also contribute to the success of the event.

Join the fun this year and ring in 2018 with over 1,500 of the Northwest’s best dressed and dance yourself silly on our 3 dance floors.

More info: tonystarlight.com

Why Seventies Soft Rock?

“The radio was the soundtrack to the 1970s, the era in which I grew up. Not every radio had FM capabilities, especially in cars. The AM dial was played in stores and restaurants and in the Country Squire Station Wagon that I rode in, sans seat belts. I absorbed these songs and they are a part of me. A few lines of ‘Rocket Man’ and I’m taken back to a time of polyester, bell bottoms and Evel Knievel.(more…)

Portland 2017 Christmas / Holiday Walking Tour of Portland’s Sinful Past: Shanghaiers, Saloons and Skullduggery | Downtown Portland, w/ Kick A** Oregon History Historian Doug Kenck-Crispin

Shanghaiers, Saloons and Skullduggery
21+
Tickets: brownpapertickets.com

As a nexus for labor and shipping in the Pacific Northwest, Portland often had the repute of a rugged, rough and tumble town, more than willing to allow the miners, loggers, and fishermen an opportunity to part with their hard earned cash in whatever debaucherous manner they chose. In addition to the shanghaiers and con men, always on the prowl, saloons, gambling halls and bordellos also thrived in “Whitechapel,” “The North End,” or Old Town, as we know it today. Some of these storied establishments have come and gone, but others have survived, and many say that Portland, or “Strip City,” still has that vulgar and rugged reputation to this day. (more…)
