Several restaurants and bars will also have MLS All-Star game viewing parties on August 6th.

“Having the All-Star soccer game in Portland is a great opportunity to capture some of that excitement and call attention to our often overlooked  neighborhood and our great group of businesses,” explains Matt Lagasse, owner of Blend Coffee and co-president of the OVBA together with Chantelle Castle, Operations Manager of United Advantage NW Credit Union.  “We hope to attract people from all over Portland, as well as out-of-towners visiting for the big MLS game and looking for something fun to do.”

Primary sponsor funding of the event comes from Venture Portland, along with local businesses Blend Coffee, United Advantage NW Credit Union, Ger-Brock Automotive and additional support from Advanced Finishing, Echo Printworks and Wacker Sanitary.

Three-person teams of soccer players of all skill levels and ages are invited to sign up for the tournament. Children’s teams will play against same age-range teams.

 Kid & Family Crawl (TRICK or TREAT) 5p – 7p
Adult Only Crawl 7p – 10p

happy halloween

Neighborhood businesses are offering special deals and a prize drawing for those in costume.  Costumed crawlers need to pick up a “passport” from the first participating business they visit and get it stamped by each business they visit.  Before they go home, they turn in their passport at whatever business they visit last to enter a drawing for prizes that include free or discounted services or products.

“The businesses in the Overlook Village Business Association are getting together to offer money-saving special deals on Halloween”, said Matt Lagasse, co-President of OVBA and owner of Blend Coffee Lounge.  “We think the Crawl will encourage more people into the spirit of the holiday, since you have to be in costume to be eligible to win one of the prizes in the drawing – which includes a $25 Visa gift card!  Of course, we’re hoping that the event will also help spread the word about all of the businesses in the neighborhood – which makes it a win-win all around!”

Special deals on tap at the different businesses include 10% off food and drink, happy hour prices, 10% off pet treats, coupons for 15% and 25% off services like massages, gift certificates for free pizza, and buy one, get one for discount at a knit shop. There’s even a free Halloween drink at Greeley Ave. Bar & Grill – but you have to be in costume to get any of these special offers.
