We’re an outdoor film series, so we’re always doing the no-rain dance and wishing for clear skies. After all, with a park as beautiful as Valentino Pier, who wouldn’t want to spend the evening lazing in the grass, enjoying cool breezes off of Buttermilk Channel, and eating amazing food from our sponsors?
But we happen to be very fortunate with our rain space this year. Our friends and sponsors over at HOME/MADE have made their super-cool catering space, Atelier Roquette (63 Commerce Street, between Van Brunt and Richards–just down the block from Stumptown), available to us for inclement evenings. With couches to lounge on and plenty of room to spread out your blankets and beach chairs, it’s our home away from home when the weather gods send us a foul night. And did we mention the added bonus of wine and beer to wash down those delicious dinners from our sponsors? Well, it’s almost enough to make you pray for a little rain every now and then!
