517 NW 21st Ave, Portland, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
On 6/10/2016, we'll announce tthe world's best new palindromes in 7 categories: short, medium, long, poetic, word-unit, visual and nasty palindromes. Free admission, all ages (the nasty winners won't be read aloud). Entertainers include Comedian Dax Jordan from Los Angeles, Metafilter's own Mark Saltveit (the reigning World Palindrome Champion) as MC/comedian, and Michael "Shoehorn" Conley, Portland's epic tap-dancing saxophonist (who is also one of the nominees). Should be fun, there's beer and good food, and the event will be short (one hour max), 6-7pm. And free admission.
Nominated palindromists include Jon Agee ("Go Hang A Salami, I'm a Lasagna Hog"), John Connett ("Eva, can I stack Rod's sad-ass dork cats in a cave?"), Lori Wike (queen of the palimerick), Ed Bennett of New Mexico who is driving out for the occasion, and Australia's Martin Clear ("Meek, ill, lewd - we'll like 'em.").
