ROLLER DIVA
—There's nothing Portland loves more than karaoke and roller skating—now together at last with Skate-a-Roke! This awesome fundraiser for the roller derby gals of the Rose City Rollers puts karaoke on the roller rink, where you can practice your crossover, dress in your finest sequined tube top, and belt out Olivia Newton-John's "Xanadu."

GLACIAL DRIFT—A girl in Portland searches for the perfect party dress; as she moves through her day, it's with the knowledge that the glaciers in her childhood home in Alaska are melting.
