We wanted to share this with you — one of the hands-down spookiest photos of all time taken at the recent Dill Pickle Club Perfect Pickle fundraiser at Ace Hotel Portland. Some unseen (to us) force is luring these two women away from a table full of perfect pickle samples and into its evil clutches.
Anyways, the Dill Pickle Club is really great, and we prefer that it not be an unseen force, but rather something you’re paying a lot of attention to. You can join up on their website.

The Dill Pickle Club

We like The Dill Pickle Club. They care about place and history and the creative and self-motivated people who make culture, independently and without promise of financial return or great acclaim. Through tours and public presentations in Portland, one of our favorite cities, they create non-traditional avenues for learning “where all forms of knowledge are valued.”

Tonight at The Cleaners at Ace Hotel Portland, they’re holding a fundraiser by challenging several local chefs to create the perfect pickle. The benefit marks the beginning of an exciting year wherein The DPC works with Publication Studio to re-release four out-of-print books about Portland — art, oral history, architecture, and local culture — that will accompany a year-long, roving lecture series at symbolic locations around the city.

The books — low-budget, immeasurably important documents of local eras — reflect the fabric of Portland’s weird, rebellious, vibrant and radically earnest culture. Here are some selected pages from Twenty Seven Installations and Rubbings From the Rose City. Keep an eye out on their site for more about the books, the lectures, and other ways you can pick up what they’re throwing down.


Tomorrow is National Fun at Work Day. An illustrated guide to making the most of it is presented above — the photos are from a set of vintage shots from a 60s office party on Slate. But since tomorrow is Saturday, we endorse getting a headstart today.
