It’s that time of the year again. Kick off the winter snow season in style at the Big Chill ’13, a celebration of the best of the Northwest presented by Widmer Brothers Brewing. On Friday, November 22nd, join Widmer Brothers Brewing for an evening of local craft beer — includding Brrr Seasonal Ale, the brewery’s winter seasonal — music, art and fashion at Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge.
What: Widmer Brothers Chill ’13
- Check out the latest winter styles in a snowboarding and winter apparel themed fashion show produced by Portland’s Jillian Rabe, LLC featuring looks from: Evo, Mojave, Unheard, and Funsie.
- The silent auction is back again this year and benefits Snowdays Foundation, a local non-profit whose mission is to empower Portland metro area youth through snowboarding. Local artists have been asked to create winter-themed works of art from used snowboards donated by Mt. Hood Meadows, which will be displayed on-site in the artist gallery. Guests at the Big Chill ’13 will be asked to vote on their favorite works of art and winning artists will receive prizes including Mt. Hood Meadows lift tickets or a weekend getaway to Sunriver Resort.
- Snow-junkies can also get their pictures taken at the Big Chill ’13 photo booth, provided by Usnaps, while warming up with a cold pint of Brrr Seasonal Ale.
When: Friday, November 22nd from 9 pm – 1 am
