Captain Picard Day, AS WE ALL KNOW, is the best starday of the year, even if Captain Picard doesn't like it. Hey, Captain Picard! You get to spend every day as a captain! And we all love you! So shut up and stop whining just because one dumb starday doesn't go exactly as you'd like!
Yet again, Floating World Comics (400 NW Couch) will host Portland's Captain Picard Day celebrations, and said celebrations are coming up soon: Thursday, June 6, from 6 to 10 pm. As ever, it's centered around art that honors Captain Jean-Luc Picard—last year there was a massive Lego portrait (when you pushed its Lego communicator, it spoke!), an elaborate ball gown painted with scenes of Picard's greatest accomplishments (the woman who made it was modeling it), a knit sweater, paintings, sketches, sculptures, you name it. Pretty sure one of the pieces of art had Picard and Q boning, fairly explicitly? (Or maybe it was Riker. Either way!) Anyway, Floating World gets packed, everybody has a good time, and seeing all the art that people come up with is a blast. Especially for me—since once again, I will, due to my incredible popularity last year, be serving as one of the event's judges. IMPRESS ME.
The flyer's below; more info can be found on the event's Facebook page.
