In honor of Portland's all-too-short summer, our next Silent Reading Party will be on the gorgeous, sunny rooftop deck of The Society Hotel.
The Society is a new boutique hotel in the historic Mariners Building (aka the Mariners' Home) in Old Town / Chinatown. The building dates from 1881, when it was commissioned by the Portland Seamen's Friend Society. Its cast iron facade and historic finishes have been painstakingly restored.
While it started out as a refuge and home for seamen, the Mariners Building took on many lives over the years. It was a hotel, a Chinese dance hall, a meeting place, a movie set, and more. You can take a look around at The Society's gallery page here.
Because space on the rooftop deck is limited, this is a ticketed event (i.e. you must have a ticket to attend.) Tickets cost $10 and get you admission, a cocktail, and two uninterrupted hours to read whatever you want in delightful, historic Portland surroundings. Snacks and more beverages will be available from The Society Café and Lounge. Earplugs will be provided. ;)
Tickets were available first to the fine folks who subscribe to our mailing list, but there are a few left and they're now open to everyone. Grab a couple and come spend a sunny Sunday afternoon reading with us!
ETA: This event is now sold out, sorry! Subscribe and we promise we'll tell you first about our next event!
