FREE GUTBOMB: Portland Meadows celebrates the first day of the racing season with free sandwiches for everyone in attendance Monday, Oct. 5, noon-4:30 pm. And when we say “sandwiches,” we mean “foil-wrapped heart attacks.” The Diplomat is a soft bun with a fried egg, Canadian bacon and American cheese. I just ate one, and I can only say “ooog.” Portland Meadows, 1001 N Schmeer Road, 285-9144, portlandmeadows.com.
FREE THEATER: Reservations for Portland’s second Free Night of Theater open Thursday, Oct. 1, at 11 am. Check out freenightoftheater.net to get two free tickets to an October performance by one of 21 participating companies, including Portland Playhouse, Artists Rep, Portland Center Stage and Lakewood Theatre Co.
FREE ROCK: Local electropop quintet Babies Got Rabies plays a farewell show/EP-release Wednesday, Sept. 30, and that, along with an appearance from the crushing local dance/hip-hop collective Breakfast Mountain, is something to get all hot and bothered about. We will shed a solitary tear for what could have been with BGR, as we dance. We’ll also keep an eye on frontman Tim John O’Brien, who promises a new band soon. Someday Lounge, 125 NW 5th Ave., 248-1030, somedaylounge.com. 9 pm Wednesday, Sept. 30. Free. 21+.
CHEAP DRINKS: Ducketts Public House, a five-month-old bar next to Portland Community College’s Cascade Campus, offers $1.50 pints of domestic beer, $2 well drinks, $3 pints of microbrews and $5 pitchers of PBR from 4 to 9 pm Monday-Saturday and 1-8 pm Sunday. 825 N Killingsworth St., 289-1869.
