If you're into hobnobbing with like-minded literary folk, Back Fence, PDX has become quite the destination. (If not, there's always this.) The storytelling series returns tonight with true, unrehearsed stories from guests like the very funny Shelley McLendon (of improv troupe the Liberators and sketch duo Eastland Academy); Powell's "marketing genius" Dave Weich, who I'm convinced has the best job in in the city; and 94.7 host Tara Dublin. AND Tinymeat will be giving away 25 free wallets; all you gotta do is show up. And take some sort of pledge. Anyway, it all goes down tonight at the Mission Theater, 1624 NW Glisan, 7:30 pm, $10-12
