So, crazy weekend, right? I drank too many free MacTarnahans' at the Stumptown/Cosmic Monkey party (confidential to somebody: I stole an ice cream sandwich. SORRY!!) and never did make it to the Record Store Day afterparty, but I trust everyone was able to put the memory of that Blazer game behind them and eke some fun out of a ridiculously action-packed Saturday night?
But now our thoughts must turn to next weekend, and the Bridgetown Comedy festival. Organizer Andy Wood is bound and determined to raise Portland's profile as a comedy town—he's been bringing acts to town under the Bridgetown Presents moniker since the festival's debut last year, and this year he's put together a lineup that's twice as big, with something like 160 participating acts performing at five different venues. Last year was a big fun drunken mess, and there's no reason to believe this year will be any different. And I have a pair of passes to give away. Would you like them?
This seems like kind of a bad idea, and one I will probably regret, but... leave your best joke in the comments. I'll pick a winner by 3 pm tomorrow. Or, if you're just not funny, $50 festival passes are available here.
