8Days: Winter rec and holistic health

8Days_Dark+Star+Orchestra_111216THURSDAY, Nov. 12

WINTER LOVERS | If you’re a parent who wants their child to be active and outdoorsy, instead of a media guzzling screen-zombie, then consider joining Winter Kid’s “License to Chill” party at the Port City Music Hall. Part of the organization’s mission (that serves 75,000 kids) is to help children develop healthy habits and attitudes towards classic playtime activities like snow fort building, sledding and skiing. Simply put, our kids are getting fat and losing their connection to nature. The average American child can identify 1,000 corporate logos, but simultaneously fail to identify 10 plant or animals in their own region. That’s messed up. Donate some dollars to help reverse this trend and party in the meantime. Hosted by 107.5 Frank FM’s Leif Erickson and Teddy Mckay, the event will feature the ’80s cover band The Awesome and local improv group, Running With Scissors. Other festivities include an ugly sweater contest and a silent auction. | $35 | 6:30pm | Port City Music Hall, 504 Congress St., Portland | www.portcitymusichall.com
