Just around the corner from the Moreland Theater on SE Bybee The Corkscrew is a wonderful spot for music where the audience is actually very quiet and respects the musicians in a concert like setting. Small plates and great desserts along with microbrews on tap along with an amazing wine selection. Check their eclectic music schedule (almost every night) with never a cover charge. Highly recommended.

Not sure about the winter time but I bet is a good turnout. Lots of hot food and coffee available. On the Main Stage (they now have two stages). In the South Park Blocks.

Madras is about 40 miles north of Bend, Oregon. Part of a great series of dinners put on by Oregon State University where top notch notch local chefs put together dinners with local ingredients. There is a "market showcase' from 4 to 6 pm and the dinner starts at 6:30 pm and runs until about 8:30 pm. Last year I played all their dinners and they are a lot of fun with great food and a nice atmosphere. A steal at $20 per person. These events usually sell out in advance so check the link below. There may be tickets at the door. The event is at the Central Oregon Agricultural Research Center. 850 NW Dogwood Lane. Madras, OR 97741

This event has been cancelled due to the forest fire in the area. Menucha is no longer under threat as the fire has shifted, but the air quality is very poor. It may be rescheduled but no decision has been made yet. Check back here in the future for more information or check their website below.
I will be playing at this annual fundraiser for the Menucha retreat in the Columbia Gorge. My music will be outside on the patio where guests will mingle while drinking and having snacks. Beautiful setting and facility. Tickets are a pricey $100 but it is for a good cause (and may be tax deductible) and a light dinner is included as well, I believe. Call 503-695-2243 for more information.
Back at one of Portland's busiest markets. Located in the Hollywood District of NE Portland you can't beat this market for it's large vendor and food selection and just a great vibe.
