Portland Fashion in the Pearl

by Bettie DeWitt

FashioNXT

As if Pioneer Courthouse Square wasn’t close enough, Portland’s Fashionable events continue in our neighborhood. FashioNXT runs tomorrow October 8th through Saturday under the big tent at NW 9th between Northrup and Overton, on the empty lot between the Encore and Marriott’s Residence Inn.

FashioNXT is a world-class runway show showcasing “What’s Next in Fashion” and this year features a stellar designer-lineup: Project Runway winners and All-Stars, and designers from Portland, New York, LA and China.

Following the show, all guests, press and buyers are invited to a Designer Meet’n’Greet and Market Hour in the VIP Lounge. After that, if you’re still game, an after-party will be held each night (the first night at the Benson Hotel and the other nights at the former P. F.

Polish the Pearl 2014

by Bettie DeWitt 

Just a reminder….2014’s Polish the Pearl event is this Saturday, October 11th, the autumnal half of the Pearl District Neighborhood Association’s semi-annual effort to gather like-minded friends to do some litter gathering around our Pearl District neighborhood.

PtP 2010 Spring

The day starts at Peet’s Coffee (1114 NW Couch) for a free cuppa and to pick up your cleaning supplies. Then it’s out and about the neighborhood picking up whatever’s out there that shouldn’t be. This is an opportunity to meet your neighbors and make some new friends while helping to keep our neighborhood clean and beautiful. Bags, gloves and trash grabbers will be supplied so just bring your sunny disposition!

At 11:30 after the clean-up, we’ll meet up again at Chipotle Mexican Grill (1201 NW Lovejoy) to celebrate and return the cleaning supplies. And there’s a free burrito in it if you’re one of the first 75 people to register. To register for the event, go to www.solv.org and click the REGISTER NOW button. Let’s get together and polish our neighborhood!

Today’s Towering Construction!

by Bettie DeWittCL 09-26-14 Panoramic

Look at this panoramic shot taken on this beautiful autumnal day by our Eye-in-the-Encore, Clayton. You can see everyone’s working very hard – the support columns are now visible from the Northrup side as they have achieved above-the-fence status, and the workers put a lid on the foundation work in the NW corner. The Cosmopolitan continues to grow up! Awesome!!

In fact, all shots are taken by our friend, Clayton. Keep up the good work!
