Portland yelpers are donating their phone books, because, well, who needs ’em?
In the spirit of recycling, the Phone Book Mash-Up will transform phone books donated by yelpers into recycled art: designers, visual artists, architects, sculptors and artists of all forms will be competing to best deviate our directories and flip our phone books!
After dumping their dusty phone books, elites sipped on creative cocktails from DRY Soda, Crater Lake Vodka, and Cascade Mountain Gin, and nibbled on delicious treats from Mango Catering – quickly learning that “it was magic mango” on those mango chicken skewers. Old and new Elites met and mingled with the artists, and were even treated to a surprise belly dancing performance before heading over to the after-party at the legendary Dockside Saloon. (Tanya Harding unfortunately was no where to be found.)
Many thanks all involved, and especially to our very own Andrew C who beautifully captured the evening on digital film. Check out more pictures HERE.
Two subsequent events will be held to track the progress of the project, so keep your Elite ears peeled! Rumors of a “booze bus studio-crawl” and a “grand re-opening of a Portland Landmark” may become a reality!
