Join Toque Libre for our Grand Holiday PARTY!

Even in the winter months, homeless people often opt to sleep outside rather than abandon their dog by staying in a no-pet shelter.

That's certainly true for Scott.

"I will sleep outside before I give up my dog," he says. "I don't care how cold it is." Dogs don't have a say,so guess what they get very cold in the winter. LETS HELP!!

Join us and Toque Libre for a Grand Holiday Party

In recognition of the Holidays, please join us in a “GRAND NIGHT” to celebrate with all our friends at Vie De Boheme! SPECIAL Guest Toque Libre!!
Toque Libre will be gracing us with their wonderful sounds and vibrations.
Toque Libre is a Flamenco musical term meaning “free form”. True to form, Toque Libre combines the melodic pop sensibilities of the Ojeda brother’s music writing style with the driving Flamenco Rumba rhythms of Mehdi Farjami’s Guitar playing. Toque Libre’s sound is made complete with the addition of hypnotic pulses borrowed from the Afro-Cuban genre.
The evening will consist of:
Music and Dancing
• Food & Wine Specials
• Raffle’s & Prizes
• Rose City Dating Game
• Bachelor & Bachelorette Auction
All monies raised from raffle & bids will go towards a local Portland Charity. $10.00 Cover will go towards the band and fitted blankets for the homeless pets.
HONOR PETS WITH YOUR ATTENDANCE!!

    I've learned my lesson -- if you want to sit with the good folks of meetup, you've got to show up good 'n' early!

    I found out a dear friend of mine passed away last night, she was like a mother to me. Feeling a bit drained and Bob & I won't be able to make it. I have some coats and scarfs I was going to bring. Is there somewhere to drop these off? Sorry for the late notice.

    too many things happening all at once. I am going to have to change to not attending. Do this again in Jan or in Feb when I am not trying to make the magic of Christmas happen and entertaining out of town family.

    Hey Ruben, you might want to consider giving some proceeds to Pongo Fund since your inspiration came from Scott's dog. They are a non-profit that gives food to people who can't otherwise feed their dogs and they've also been helping out their humans in this cold spell. http://www.thepongofund.org/2013/12/08/arctic-blast-danger/
