Thanks in large part to global warming, Holocene's monthly Cupcake dance party will be cancelled this weekend. After seeing the forecast for Sunday (105-freakin' degrees) organizers decided that the "Fat Folks and Allies" that usually pack the Holocene the fourth Sunday of every month would most likely be busy putting out mini-wildfires in their backyards.
But worry not large Portland fans of dance. Cupcake will be back Aug. 27 with a "Back to School" theme.
Anyone thinking they can sneak into Holocene and drink away their hot Sunday, should think again. The entire joint will be closed.
