I’ve got some fun Portland trivia for everyone:

Fiction novelist Chuck Palahniuk, makes his home in Portland. He shares about his time here in his book, Fugitives and Refugees: A Walk in Portland, Oregon

Over 100 years ago, Portland was considered the most dangerous city in the states to go out for a drink. Not because you might end up dead, but instead shanghaied on a boat to another country.

Portland’s “Shanghai Tunnels”, lesser known as “Portland Underground”, connected the basements of many downtown hotels and pubs to the Willamette River’s waterfront. Originally built to move goods from docked ships, these tunnels quickly created a unique network of passages and thoroughfares that were used by unscrupulous individuals called “shanghaiiers” or “crimps”, to move drugged and kidnapped individuals unto ships and into slavery and prostitution.

Quizzy with Roy Smallwood is every Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m. and free Hold ’em Poker on Monday nights starting at 7:00 p.m.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!
