Matt Mount of House Spirits (makers of Medoyeff Vodka and Aviation Gin) confirmed last week that the popular Recession Proof Mixology series (RPM) would be making rounds through some of Portland's gentlemen's clubs and gay bars. Every Wednesday night for the last several months, House Spirits representatives have offered their $5 specialty cocktail list at participating bars. This will be their first foray into the city's flesh palaces and queer havens. Keep an eye on for details.


On Tuesday, April 21, from noon until 8 pm, all Portland Ben and Jerry's locations will be offering a free cone to all. It's the 31st year of Free Cone Day, and should you feel generous after a free scoop, you can leave a donation to benefit Portland's New Avenues for Youth, which works with the Ben and Jerry's downtown location (524 SW Yamhill) to provide job training to at-risk youth.
