So again we fling open our doors and invite all comers to this no-cover all-ages birthday wing-ding. With the Crystal Hotel open, the fun covers two city blocks: Music in four different rooms; comedy in Al's Den; property tours; kids fun; food and drink specials; tastings of our spirits, wine and beer; and of course a special birthday brew will pour throughout the properties. 

The family-friendly festivities begin at 1pm, with Bloco Alegria playing and dancing at 4pm in the main Ballroom venue.

New Years Eve Party

Once you have experienced a dance floor under the careful watch of DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid, there is no going back to your previous life. Add to this the percussion of the Bloco Alegria players and the dynamism of Bloco Alegria dancers, you might even forget who you are.

If this sounds like fun, start your transformation when the doors open at 9pm. Bloco plays at 10pm, and its gorgeous dancers help bring in the New Year at midnight.

Let's hang onto our hats together. See you there.

Brazilian Halloween Ball

Join Bloco Alegria and DJ Digo for "A Halloween with a Twist" at The Analog in inner SE Portland. Make no mistake, the live grooves of Bloco Alegria and the hot tunes of DJ Digo will make it impossible to do anything but shake whatever you have to shake for as long as you have to shake it. And that could be all night!

Don't forget that Thursday is the Eve of the Eve of Halloween, and if that doesn't inspire you to come visually altered in your Halloween makeover, maybe the prizes for outstanding costumes will. Yes, indeed!

And if you have always wanted to learn a little bit of samba dance and have the chance to win friends and influence people with your new moves, you will not go away disappointed. Samba dance lessons await you at The Analog. Believe it!

Finally, yes, it's a work night for most folks. But if you find yourself a bit tired and desirous of a quiet little respite from the travails of the day (yawn), you'll probably be able to find yourself a quiet little corner at the Analog for a well deserved nap. But the dreams! The dreams!
