New restaurant listing! O’Connors Restaurant in Multnomah Village in SW
Portland has GREAT food, cooked from scratch. I can personally attest to
this!!O’Connor’s is a family owned 75 year old cafe which also has a
private dining area suitable for special occasions. Please see their
listing (in our Senior-friendly restaurants category)for more information.
Note: O’Connor’s requests prior reservations and one check for the group.
Something really special to commemorate Independence Day! Lunacy
Stageworks (listed in our Theatre category) is presenting “a series of
reflections and memoirs by a small ensemble of young writers from Rwanda,
Vietnam, Okinawa and beyond. The mood of their work ranges from curious to
tragic, moving and sweet, sad and funny–but always rich with the
diversity of our roots…” Cookies, coffee and mingling to follow! Friday,
July 3, 7 pm , at Sellwood Masonic Lodge in SE Portland. $5 admission.
And this is great fun for those hams out there or their friends: Lunacy is
also holding another of its “Open Mic” nights on Saturday, July 11 at 8pm,
at Sellwood Masonic Lodge. “Brush off that old poem or write a new one,
show off the dance steps you love, play the piano or guitar, tell some
jokes…and bring your crowd! Whether you are a professional or a first
timer, come on down and step up to the mic.” $3 cover. Read more about
Lunacy Stageworks on ElderAudience’s Theatre category.
SWEET OPPORTUNIY!!!!Time to hold another drawing! But this one will be
different. If you know of a talented performer or activity for seniors
that is not currently listed on ElderAudience, refer them to us!

the Home page, OR have them e mail firstname.lastname@example.org) Between now and

Restaurant. I have personally devoured brownies and Black Forest Cake made
by Anita. Check out Otto and Anita’s restaurant listing on ElderAudience
and click on their website to see their dessert menu, as well as their
other scrumptious fare!This is a really fun and friendly place to take
groups of seniors–and if you win, you can either award the desserts to 4
lucky residents, or redeem the prize for yourself on a decadent day off!

add new listings all the time! And please tell anyone you come across who
may not already know about the ElderAudience site. We want to reach
everyone in the Portland/Vancouver area who works with seniors, and also
seniors themselves who may be looking for special entertainment!
