Cellar Door Cafe Hosts Frank Chin Fundraiser
I forgot to announce it on the 44's board, but we are bringing Frank Chin to Portland on July 11th and 12th, 2008. Mark your calendars. We're currently in the process of finalizing details. More to follow.
Last night, Cellar Door Coffee hosted a fundraiser for Thymos, our Portland-based Asian American activist group. Jeremy Adams, the owner of Cellar Door, graciously allowed us to use his space for our fundraiser, and his brother Aaron and girlfriend Dinae cooked the vegan organic food on the menu. Special thanks to Bao-Loc Nguyen who arranged this entire event. Putting this together was an absolutely phenomenal feat of management, and Bao deserves special props. Thanks to his girlfriend Betty and cousin Huan for volunteering as servers. All of the above donated their services free of charge. There were 37 people in attendance. The food and company was absolutely awesome. Thanks to everyone for the awesome night, and thank you to those who could not attend but sent money anyway.
Also, if you're ever in Portland, check out Cellar Door Coffee. Jeremy makes an awesome chai, and the atmosphere is excellent. Also check out Aaron at the Red and Black.
