WHAT: Attention all hip chicks and cool cats: The Academy Theater’s indiegogo campaign may just have ended, but the show (and the fundraising) must go on! So muster up some mid-century mojo and travel back in time to the Swinging ‘60s! Sample some of Portland’s finest food and drink while enjoying live theater, local fashion, and the Rat-Pack-tastic musical stylings of Portland’s own Tony Starlight!
