Whatever your plans are for the weekend, make sure you’ve got the new edition of Street Roots in hand and on standby. It’s packed full of good reads for an afternoon break, a Sunday morning on the stoop, or the ride home on the bus. Here’s what’s rolling on the press right now:
On the road with Grace Potter: The lithe and lively front-woman for the Nocturnals talks about finding her place in many music scenes.
City’s alcohol impact area goes flat with OLCC: The Oregon Liquor Control Commission said Portland can’t go forward as planned on banning large-serving, high-alcohol beverages downtown.
Designated drivers: A ride-along in the CHIERS van as it picks up revelers who have had a few too many.
The gravity of abuse: The fourth and final installment of our series on one family’s journey through domestic violence.
Plus, commentary and insight from Partnership for Safety and Justice, Portland economist Robin Hahnel and Ramona’s mom, Melissa Favara. As always, there’s more than meets the eye to every vendor and every edition of Street Roots. So tuck a buck before you head out and look for your local vendor Friday morning! Thank you!
