EverOut is The Mercury's new website devoted to things to do in Portland and across the Pacific Northwest. It has all the same things you're used to seeing from Mercury EverOut, just in a new spot!

The longest and darkest night of this long and dark year falls on Monday, December 21, giving you a chance to start fresh before the official new year takes hold. We're rounded up all the online or otherwise socially distanced ways to ring in the new season in the Northwest and nationwide, from a virtual Pickathon Solstice Party to an Eastside winter solstice walk in Seattle, and from the Northwest Film Forum/Holocene collab party Longest Night to the winter solstice live from Stonehenge. See them all below, and check out our complete winter holiday calendars in Seattle and Portland for even more seasonal happenings.
