The Duniway Portland is launching Vinyl Record Suites to celebrate Record Store Day, an annual celebration of independently owned record stores, on April 13.

These rooms will feature U-turn audio record players with classic records, including The Duniway's Top Five Collections Cases featuring playlists from Ted Wheeler, mayor of Portland, The Duniway General Manager Ryan Kunzer, Jackrabbit's head chef Chris Cosentino and many more.

Other collections include the Abigail Scott Duniway collection, inspired by the property’s namesake change-maker, which features top female empowerment anthems from leading female artists such as Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Madonna.

All Vinyl Record Suites offer 65-inch Samsung HDTVs with user-friendly StayCast technology, king-size Waldorf Serenity beds with 500 thread-count linens, an in-room Vittoria espresso maker, a mini refrigerator and more.

In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.

 

For the first time ever, Refract: The Seattle Glass Experience is being hosted by 30 Pacific Northwest Arts Organizations.  

Set to be held October 17-20, this inaugural glass festival will be filled with tours, demonstrations, parties, and exhibits perfect for both visitors and locals. Hands-on glassmaking demonstrations will fascinate kids and adults alike, while evening parties and exhibitions by renowned artists will attract the adult crowd.
