December 19th was the 3rd annual Santa Speedo Run! It’s my first time investigating this particular scene and I’m now able to say without a doubt – this is the BEST CHRISTMAS-THEMED EVENT EVER. Not only that! But it’s for a good cause. Cheers to Andrew Buswell for organizing what must be the biggest, baddest fundraiser for the Ethiopia Project. It’s not to late to donate your lightly worn shoes (or hard-earned funds)! More info at http://ethiopiaproject.com/
Also, BIG THANKS to Sammy Miller and the Congregation for the jazzy theme music! They played for the first time in Portland over the weekend; I was lucky enough to be there. They knocked my socks off!
