First Friday Events


First Friday is Back! Free Nibbles and Beverages.

June 5th, from 6 to 8 PM

Kick off the weekend with Breakside Brewing!



Why You Should Go

We’re kicking off summer right with this complimentary First Friday event featuring Breakside Brewing and Merry Meat Pie and artwork from local artists, Jill Torberson and Jeff Schnabel. Work for this show attempts to combine ideas of destination, navigation, and obstacle in both literal and emotional terms. Featuring 3-D sculptural welding, Torberson’s works are done in a 2-D painterly style, evolved from examining the patinas of the surfaces of found steel.  Jill sees the rusty and galvanized steel as the canvas. She then manipulates the found surfaces with acrylics and/or graphite. Welded steel elements may added to these surfaces to create depth and layering, shadows play a large role in the overall design concept.

For those 21+, complimentary beverages will be poured by guest artisan, Breakside Brewing. Breakside Brewery has been on the forefront of creative and trend-setting beers for over five years now.  Rooted in thoughtful experimentation and historical styles, Breakside’s beers draw inspiration from the wide world of food and drink, as well as the community.  From funky sours to traditional lagers, you’ll never leave Breakside without falling in love with a beer.

Light appetizers will be provided by Pacific Pie Company. Using fresh, local ingredients and only humanely raised free range and grass fed meats, Pacific Pie believes an artisan in any industry strives to learn more about their craft and where their food comes from, while always trying to achieve a better product and more flavor.

Insider’s Secret

The Jupiter Hotel has been an incubator for small businesses and a supporter of the arts.  Our newest venture is the First Friday Artisan Series where we expand the concept of art into an exploration of all of the senses: visual, taste, touch, smell and sound.  The First Friday event is an opportunity to treat yourself to a variety of sensory stimulation and support the local artisans that make Portland a unique and wonderful place to live.
