DEADITE DELIGHT—What could be better than watching The Evil Dead for the 6,666th time? Going to the theater to watch it for the first time.

—The Dill Pickle Club celebrates the release of its fifth Oregon History Comic, The Streets of Chinatown, with a free (in-depth) chat about the current state of the neighborhood featuring community leaders like Henry Sakamoto and Mary Leong. Bonus! The Mercury's own Sarah Mirk not only wrote the comic but also will be moderating the discussion. (No, it won't be about bicycles.) DCT
