Announcing the Eurotrash Bash & Pretentious Art Writing Contest for PORT's 1 Year Anniversary
To mark our 1st anniversary PORT announces:
The Eurotrash Bash
, 8:00PM June 15th at Apotheke
, Portland's uber angular bastion of Northern European spirits and nosh •
1314 NW Glisan, Suite 2A (Upstairs). Come over, get your Gjetost
on, meet PORT staffers and try some Zwak
as you listen to the Europhile sounds of DJ van DIS.
In conjunction PORT is announcing our first annual "Pretentious Art Writing
." Simply give us your most craven and pedantic prose somehow remotely
related to art (either real or imagined) by emailing it to me
on or by the 14th (a shadowy league of judges will decide). Yes you get points for
name dropping but only to a point. Also, anyone caught simply copying from the
Art Forum Diary or Okwui
will be publicly flogged in pioneer square for crimes against linguistic
communication. To set the bar let this
be a benchmark
for your entries (on the scale of 1-10, 10 being most pretentious,
this is a mere 7). The winning entry will be published on PORT and receive a
dinner for two, complements of Le Happy
where you can feast on the veritable sea of undermined ironic pretenses distilled
into their legendary Le Trash Blanc crepes. We will announce the winner of our
pretentious art writing contest at the Eurotrash Bash.
Thank You PORT sponsors, readers and staffers
Thanks to everyone who made last night such a nice, successful event. Our readers and sponsors are the reason PORT has been such a worth while endeavor and it was great to see everyone in person.
Frequent reader and commenter Ethan Ham won our first annual "Pretentious Art Writing Contest" recieving a $50 gift certificate generously donated by Le Happy. His winning entry will be posted tomorrow.
It was a fun night, unfortunately I had to leave somewhat early. Apotheke is a pretty swank place. I like their "no mixed drinks" policy. And congrats to Ethan for being the "Most Pretentious!"
