the first Anniversary part will be rageful (the good kind). we'll have my friend's band and half priced drinks and tons of food from local gardens (the only cheap and delicious source of food in 2020) some of the drinks will be home distilled as well. it will be another oddly sunny globally warmed February in Portland, but it is night time now and we are all inside now, the light and heat coming from dim old tungsten filament light bulbs (retro, for style) and the wood stove in the corner.
there will be a toast. to the future of our bar: "the refuge" and to the future of life on earth.
there will be heated arguments on the issues of the day, and what is the best course of action to take. the energy crisis, legalization, the coming to a head of the internet piracy trials that were begun in 2017.
we will be distressed that Monsanto still exists, that the Astoria oil spill wasn't properly prosecuted, there will be calls to action, drunkenness and dancing.
