Tonight, Know Your City, the aptly-named non-profit dedicated to connecting people to place —  and formerly the Dill Pickle Club, who we’ve long known and loved and learned from — is making moves. 
On a day-to-day basis, they organize tours, lectures and youth programs and preach the gospel of the Pacific Northwest come rain or, occasionally, shine. 
Now, they’re getting ready to mobilize their message — literally, they want to buy a kiosk on wheels and bike it around town — but need a little help from their friends. Join them tonight for A Night in the Alley as they promote “Kiosk Awareness,” or do their best to gather support for their latest and greatest initiative. If you can’t make it, their Kickstarter campaign has more information on their mission and message, and it’s the place to go to pitch in. Make haste though, Internet friends, as this golden opportunity to lend a hand to professional lend-a-handers ends on Kickstarter November 28. And perhaps most importantly, you could get pickles.

This weekend, designers took over the second floor of Ace Hotel Portland for Content, creating audible, tactile and scent-based installations and blowing our minds for the fourth year running.

Among the many noteworthy appearances were Bridge and Burn’s clean and classic clothing, Cloth and Goods’ indigo wares and Norwood hats, the latest and greatest project from the inimitable Antonio Brasko. Crazy Wind swept us away with swaths of Japanese kasuri textiles, and OLO Fragrance raised a tent among the pines in which we contemplated their dark and magical scents. 

Bobby Bonaparte of LiFT Label had a good time, too — “Portland is burning with creativity,” he says. “The vibe of Content remains fresh and underground.”
