Revels seasonal pub sings are for anyone who loves to sing. They evolved out of the impromptu gatherings of cast members who wanted to keep singing after rehearsals or performances. Now they’ve grown to include any and all that love to sing, recite poems or just sit around with a pint and a burger and enjoy the company of friends.
Upcoming Pub Sings:
Autumn Equinox Pub Sing
Sunday September 18th, 2016
6:00 to 8:30 PM
Lucky Lab Beer Hall
1945 NW Quimby St. Portland, OR 97209
Portland Revels will be partnering again with Lift Urban Portland for our Autumn Equinox Pub Sing on September 18th! While the change of the seasons can bring warmth and welcome, it can also be a hardship for the homeless and hungry in the Portland Community. Because of this, last year we dedicated our autumn pub sing to serving those in need. We’re grateful to the Lucky Lab Beer Hall on NW Quimby for allowing us to use the space this year for no cost!
Join us for a family-friendly evening of singing and merriment, and help the hungry while you lift a pint. The event usually costs $10 a head (and we’ll split our proceeds with Lift Urban Portland). But if you bring 3 cans of food you get in for $5, and if you bring 4 or more you get in for free! You can learn more about both of our organizations at the event, and help us sing in the fall while giving back to the community.
For suggestions about what the food bank most needs right now, check out Lift Urban Portland’s webpage: http://www.lifturbanportland.org/donate-food–other-items.html
Robert Burns wrote this poem in 1787. We think it perfectly captures the spirit of our pub sings!
A Bottle and a Friend
“Here’s a bottle and an honest friend
What wad ye wish for mair, man?
Wha kens, before his life may end,
What his share may be o’ care, man?
Then catch the moments as they fly,
And use them as ye ought, man;
Believe me, happiness is shy,
And comes no ay when sought, man!”
