Extending the weekend

By: Holly Nunan

Ahh, Sunday, I have spent a large majority of you doing absolutely nothing and I’m quite satisfied with that, but there are some pretty decent things shaking down this Sunday evening so if you’re looking to extend the weekend in to tonight here are the haps for this Sunday Fun Day.

The Food Coma Show is a new web series starring foodie and bartender extraordinaire Joe Ricchio as he takes a variety of guests to different dining locations throughout the state to consume and sample amazing courses of food and then discuss the finer points of said consumed food and booze.  It sounds like a fairly simple concept, indeed, but when you through Joe Ricchio in front of any sort of audience you’re certain to be entertained by the outcome.  Tonight The Food Coma Show celebrates the series premiere with a viewing at SPACE Gallery in Portland that begins at 7.  Tonight’s featured episode is the series premiere, shot at Bresca in Portland, which features chef Krista Desjalais’ cuisine and the personalities of rappe Spose, Olympic skier Julie Parisien, Pocket Brunch impresario Joel Beauchamp and wine slayer Jon Dietz; food and folly, what could be better?

If you’re looking to get down on a school night then look no further than The Big Easy in Portland where tonight a surprise Sunday show takes place featuring the immensely talented Lyle Divinsky and his equally talented band of friends.  Lyle promises to bring the soulful, funky grooves that are certain to get you moving this evening, so throw on your rage shoes and get up to get down this Sunday Fun Day event starting at 8 o’clock.

Another edition of The Couch with host John Nels is taking place downstairs at Empire Dine and Dance this evening.  The Couch is definitely one of Portland’s most assorted open mic nights that not only provides a place for local musicians to play in front of an audience, but also features a showcase set from different artists each and every week.  It’s always free and begins at 9 o’clock.
