Pistil Books’ annual sale is Saturday afternoon in an alley off E Union, Rugby is a Drag (Rugby players! Performing! In drag! Hot!) is Saturday evening at Neighbors, and then there’s Linda’s Fest on Saturday.

LindasFestLinda’s Fest is free and fun and loud and runs 5:30- 10pm in the back lot of Linda’s on Saturday. Food and drink specials, plus fun bands. CHS wrote about the fifth annual event celebrating Capitol Hill bands here.

We’ll have rad food and drink specials all night in addition to our regular menu. Even though the festivities will be over by 10, the Rainier will be flowing wilder than the Columbia River into the wee hours of the night. Linda’s Fest will GO OFF in the Linda’s Tavern back parking lot, but that doesn’t mean your friend who lives on Olive won’t have his face melted via astral projection. Linda’s Fest is a Nice Place for Nice People, that’s why you’re invited.

Saturday, the second annual Hopscotch CD event creates 2.9 miles of hopscotch play areas across the Central District. Included in the fun, Centerstone’s parking lot at 722 18th Ave will host the grandmamma of all hopscotch games in an attempt to break a world record.

  1. I went to a Rugby Quake “charity event” at Neighbours in 2012. I entered the raffle and won the grand prize. They took my contact information, but never delivered the prize. I even messaged back and forth with the VP of Quake Rugby, Michael Farris, for 2 months, but he kept saying he was really busy. After the last undelivered promise, I gave up. Wonder where the money went.

  2. “Solinea Tower 3is Alveo’s first multitower development in Cebu that makes it possible for residents to come home to a vacation every day,” Tupaz said. “Being located right across Ayala Center Cebu, Solinearesidents can truly enjoy the convenience of being near the city hotspots and the luxury of resort-like amenities and a unique retail concept that complement the vibrant streetscape of the Cebu Park District. What it has to offer complements Cebu Park District’s rise as a dynamic hub for business, recreation and residential living.”
