We are so excited to announce we will be collaborating with San Francisco based, The Bold Italic on their Bold Rush Portland event October 2-3rd. They contacted us about doing a E+E unique guide to Portland and co-curating a pop-up shop at The Cleaners, owned by Ace Hotel.Here are the deets. "Since 2009, The Bold Italic has been celebrating local creativity in San Francisco. Between our online mag, print publications, events, and pop-up shop, we focus on covering and collaborating with the artists, writers, local businesses, and organizations who make us excited to be living in the Bay Area. For one week this fall, though, we’re taking the show on the road, exporting a couple SF elements that we love to Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle.Between Friday, Sept. 28 and Sunday, Oct. 7, we’ll be caravaning from Southern California to the Northwest with a pop-up shop, art show curated by Dan Johnson Lake, and nighttime event that combines Rice Paper Scissors’ Vietnamese street food with American Tripps’ Berlin-style ping-pong, DJs, and live music. The idea is to showcase what we’re excited about in San Francisco outside our borders and to show people back home what like-minded locals are enthusiastic about in our West Coast sister cities. During this week, all the content on the site will come from writers in Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle, with stories and blog posts about life in those cities, as well as previews of our activities on the road and profiles of the folks we’re partnering with along the way.After kicking off Bold Rush on September 28-29 in Los Angeles, we’re heading up to Portland, where we’ll take over The Cleaners, a corner spot in the West End neighborhood owned by the Ace Hotel. We’ll have a pop-up shop co-curated by Portland lifestyle publication EYES + EDGE, tables by special Portland makers and businesses includingPaxton Gate, M’Lady’s Records, and more. There will be an art show open during the day for design hounds to check out during their extended lunch hours (or, *cough* sick days), and then at night we’ll have Rice Paper Scissors feed the crowd during our evening of ping-pong and rock ‘n’ roll."Pop-up shop hours: noon-5 p.m. Tues. and Wed.Ping-pong party: Wed., Oct. 3, 7-10 p.m.Yeah...you read it right. Ping-pong party. We'll see you there.
