Two Burgervilles Supporting Free Geek Wednesday 3/20
Consider visiting either the Burgerville at 16211 SE Division St or 1122 SE Hawthorne Blvd between 5 and 8pm on Wednesday the 20th to help support Free Geek. They’re both donating 10% of their proceeds from this evening to Free Geek.
Live Music, Video Games, $3 Drafts and More to Support Free Geek 2/21
Join us for a Free Geek all-ages party Thursday 2/21 7-10pm at Ford Food & Drink and enjoy special guests The Doubleclicks, a geek sister duo from Portland (who happen to have written the Cards Against Humanity theme song). After their set, enter the video game tournament on the big screen with a Free Geek Thrift Store gift certificate grand prize. Don’t forget to bring some cash for the laptop raffle. Thanks to Lompoc Brewing, we’re able to offer $3 pints of Rye IPA and Fool’s Golden Ale with a portion of proceeds going to Free Geek. $5 recommended donation, but more is always appreciated ;)
We have tons of beautiful posters created by Caitlin Hansen Design & Illustration at the Free Geek front desk. Please come by to pick up one, ten or twenty for yourself or to share them around your neighborhood.
Pacific Pie Company to Donate a Portion of Proceeds 2/12 to Free Geek
Tuesday 2/12 Pacific Pie Company (1520 SE 7th Ave) will donate a portion of the proceeds from all sales to Free Geek! They make tasty, tasty sweet and savory pies, so definitely consider eating a lighter diet than usual two or three days before the 12th to prepare your stomach for their amazingness. Please tell your friends, families and anyone you see on the street to visit Pacific Pie Company this Tuesday so you can help Free Geek fulfill our mission.

Free Geek’s 10-year Anniversary Party!
This October, Free Geek will be celebrating the conclusion of their first successful decade by coming out of our geeky shells to throw a party recognizing all the people and organizations in the Portland community who have helped create a culture where Free Geek would thrive.
The celebration, on October 2nd at the Bossanova Ballroom (722 E Burnside), will feature local reuse partner Junk to Funk in a recycled fashion show, along with high energy dancing and music from The Beauty, geek-turned dance-party-performance-band Dat’r, and Holocene regular DJ Ted Thieman. Read on for more info about the awesomeness that will be Free Geek’s 10th Anniversary Celebration.
Junk to Funk is a collective that inspires individuals towards responsible consumerism, creative re-use and conscientious disposal by providing unique fashion based entertainment and educational opportunities. Junk to Funk will be performing a trashion show, followed by the models hanging out with the crowd and dancing.
