OTHER PERTINENT DETAILS: Cosplay encouraged! Kids welcome!

OH, HEY, HERE’S A FACEBOOK EVENT! YOU DON’T HAVE TO RSVP, BUT IT WOULD BE SUPER HELPFUL IF YOU DID!

Steep & Thorny is a private club! To get in, let the nice person at the door know that you are there for the X-Men party!

There will be a cash bar with alcoholic (adults only, with ID) and non-alcoholic (everyone) beverages! ADULTS: Please note that this is an all-ages event. If you get drunk and disorderly, we will kick your ass out.

SO MANY THANKS to The Steep & Thorny Way to Heaven for donating the use of their space for this event. If you’re local–or a frequent visitor–and a fan of weird and wonderful art and performance, you should make a point of checking out what they do when they’re not hosting us!

  1. I’ve been trolling around on the street view of Google Maps looking for the meet-up site. If I’m at the Dirty Bridge Bistro, where is the meet-up relative to it? Anyone?

  2. Really excited for this! I am a fellow PDXer, I was wondering if y’all were gonna do a live podcast. Looks like it’s gonna be a thing!!! Woo.

  3. Sadness, frustration & longing that life does not facilitate a trip for the fam to Portland this year. Look forward to the live podcast. Best of luck and fun times yawl!

    SLC-Con next year? ComicKaze?

    1. If you can convince them to bring us as guests, sure! That’s the only way it’s really financially feasible to do many shows outside of the Pacific Northwest.

      1. I put Kirby Krackle in for SLC and they’ve been invited this year, (sadly I won’t be there either – things and stuff) so I’ll keep bugging them about you too.

        Speaking of KK, enjoy that show for me too, K?
