Free: InFARMation (and Beer!) at Holocene Tues 8.10: Eaters' Rights!

New Home for InFARMation (and Beer!) = Holocene! Back to 2nd Tuesday of the Month August 10th: Eaters' Rights

 

After the unexpected news that Roots Brewery closed the day before July’s scheduled InFARM, we seem to have landed in a great new home. Come check it out – InFARMation (and Beer!) is now at *Holocene* (1001 SE Morrison – map it), located at the corner of SE 10th and Morrison. It’s an unassuming building from the outside, and isn’t marked well so we’ll try to get some kind of sidewalk sign out there for those who have never seen a show there.
