Sure enough, we featured Mike-the-Phone-Guy in this photo spread on "bellies."
My advice to the last remaining hominids who still insist on using a fax machine to send communications â€” and, more importantly, calendar listings â€” to the Eugene Weekly: FOR! THE! LOVE! OF! GOD! Please stop! And please learn how to send an email. For starters, your submissions are always too late. To wit, today I got a listing for an event happening on Jan. 14, which is 11 days late! And to add insult to injury, the release came from a building across the street from EW's offices...ugh! Fax machines are a waste of time, a huge waste of natural resources and will always, always, always malfunction when you (seemingly) need it the most. Please recycle your fax machine ASAP and get with the 21st century. Thanks.
Please email all calendar, gallery or nightlife listings to: email@example.com
Deadline is noon on the Thursday prior to the Thursday edition you want your event listed.
This calendar submission came in too late for tomorrow's issue, but the event is for such a good cause I'd thought I'd post it here.
The Little French School is having a Fall Fundraiser starting at 2 pm Saturday, Nov. 22, at 18th and City View. Donated items and crafts from the children are featured. All proceeds will go toward the purchase of a permanent home for the school. Call 345-3818 for more information.
Due to the fact that it's Valentine's Day on Feb. 14, the organizers of the Science Pub thought you'd rather spend your evening thinking about sex and not monkey sex. Here's the new date:
Wednesday, Feb. 13
Science Pub: "What's Love Got To Do With It: Sex for Social Bonding in Bonobos," Frances White, 7pm, Luna. 21+. FREE.
More info on Science Pubs: CLICK HERE.
...and (thanks to its incredible lateness) it's not on our calendar.
Come on down to EWEB's Training Room on Tuesday, Dec. 18, at 7 pm, for a talk by Mott Green, one of the founders of Grenada Chocolate Company, recently featured in The Guardian, Salon and numerous other chocolate-based trade journals. Read the Salon piece for the Oregon connection (some of the founders live here/met here/worked here).
Anyway, it'd be unfortunate for die-hard foodies to miss this event and hear how these little red pods...
turn into these delicious (organic, fair-trade, handmade) bars:
(HINT: There will be free samples!)
OK, so this is getting ridiculous.
We have two weekly listings for Shambala, one for Wednesday and one for Saturday. They both say to call Don for details and it should be John.
The calendar listing reads: Reiki Circle, 6:30pm, Shambala, 446 E. 13th. 868-1178. Don.
For the record, when a calendar listing ends with Don., that means donation, or, the event is free, but it'd be real nice if you gave a "love offering," as many calendar submitters have articulated it.
Here is a handy abbreviation cheat sheet.
sug. don. = suggested donation
$15-$30 = cost of admission is on a sliding scale, or there are a range of price levels
$15+. = admission starts at $15 but can get more expensive if you wish
FREE = no cost of admission (though there may be additional fees)
21+. = 21 and older only (though is implied in wine tastings)
stu. = students
sr. = seniors
child = children
feat. = featuring
$3 adv., $5 door. = It costs $3 in advance and $5 day of show or at door
UO = University of Oregon
OSU = Oregon State University
LBCC = Linn-Benton Community College
LCC = Lane Community College
Due to an incorrect press release, we went to press with the wrong start times for the UO/LCC joint production of Threepenny Opera, opening Friday, Nov. 9 and continuing Nov. 10, 15-17.
The correct curtain time for all performances is 7:30 pm.
This event came in too late to make it in our listings, but it sounded worthy enough to mention here.
Time Machine Cabaret, 8pm Sept. 28 & 29, Centro del Sol, 513 E. Main St., Cottage Grove. $5, $2.50 under age 21.
