September: Bee Balm, Brandi Carlisle, Martha Stewart & Holiday!

ORIGINAL POST DATE: September 18, 2014

Its been a crazy month since the first blog but WOW a lot has been happening.  The vacation rentals have been booked and we have a new addition to the entry way.  Our friends at Portland Bee Balm have made Opal 28 a custom Portland Bee Balm display and honor box.  We hope our vacation rental guests enjoy this Portland made amenity! 

We have been hosting a myriad of private events-----among some of our favs have been a private performance with Brandy Carlisle.  Just a week after opening for Dave Mathews Band in the Gorge, the Seattle based musician played an intimate afternoon show to benefit The Looking Out Foundation.

The Portland chapter of the Wedding Network enjoyed their quarterly dinner in the Reserve Room.  Bill Horton from Biz Fix gave a great presentation.  You can find details of his seminars at

As you know we have a commercial kitchen on site that various artisan food purveyors use, one of our first tenants SMASHED! Boozy Jams + Jellies'  has been nominated by the 2014 Martha Stewart American Made Awards.  VOTE for Jeannine today and you can buy her yummy products on Etsy.  If you are looking for kitchen space please let us know!

The leaves are starting to change and there is an evening chill in the air signaling that Fall is just about here.  We are elated about this because holiday events are just around the corner!  Stay tuned for Opal 28 to get a holiday makeover, we are not talking red and green garland but we have some fun design ideas brewing as well as holiday themed drinks and food options!   Are you looking for December event space?  Book your festivities at Opal 28 by Sept. 30th to receive complementary peppermint brownies for all your guests.
