Single on Valentine’s Day? Celebrate Oregon’s statehood instead. Oregon became a state on Feb.14, 1859. What do you know about our beautiful state? Oregon abounds in interesting trivia and beautiful spaces. Take your single friends to meet other singles and form trivia teams of up to five people for some Oregon trivia, then settle in with your new friends to watch “Goonies,” filmed and based in Oregon.
“I got half jokingly asked to do a singles night at the rec center and thought this might be fun,” said event organizer Jenni Remillard.
Doors open at 5:15 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14, and trivia begins at 5:30 p.m. for this 18 and older event. The winning team will receive goodies donated by Made in Oregon. The cost is $5 per person, and child care is available for $2.50 per child per half hour.
