“Weird Oregon” & Open House
If you joined us for our “Open House & “Weird Oregon” book signing Event on June 12th, thank you for coming and we hoped you enjoyed our first of many events here at the B & B. If you were unable to attend, you will have other opportunities during 2010 to join us. Saturday’s event was filled with great conversations and stories, good fixings from “Uncle Reo’s BBQ”, unique varieties of beers from the “Beer Mongers” in SE Portland, Wine from John’s Wine Cellar and great people.
Jeff Davis, co-author of “Weird Oregon” visited with guests, shared stories and talked about his ghosts and paranormal adventures. Books were available for purchase as well as personalized and signed. A treasure for your coffee table or just a fun book about legends and places to travel here in Oregon. Maybe it could be your 100 things to see and do in Oregon–add it to your bucket list. Click here to check out his website.
If you missed this event, Jeff and his co-author will be revealing some of the most exciting, yet strange stories, that they encountered while they were creating the book, at these venues:
May 19, 6:30 p.m., Barnes & Noble, 18300 N.W. Evergreen Parkway, Beaverton, both will appear.
May 21, 7 p.m., Barnes & Noble, 1317 Lloyd Center, Portland, both will appear.
May 22, 2 p.m., Barnes & Noble, 2690 N.E. Highway 20, Bend, only Jeff will appear (now that’s weird).
So what are some of the things that keep Portland weird, according to the authors? A jug-shaped building, a Paul Bunyan statue, a Russian coffee house. And even the Fulton House Bed & Breakfast found on page 60 & 61, “Could we be Nancy Bogg’s infamous Bordello?”
For every Weird Oregon book purchased at the Fulton House Bed & Breakfast, the Innkeeper donated $5.00 to the Providence Cancer Center/Portland for cancer research. Wendy will be sending a check for $200. A special “Thank you” to everyone who purchased a book!
Thank you all for making this event successful and we hope to see you at our future events. Follow this blog to find out about our up-coming events.
