Small Clockwork Departure You are invited to my pre-mortem wake and roast, a somewhat morbid, deeply irreverent, but joyous celebration of me. This is a time for celebrating my life, loves, and dark, twisted sense of humor. Bring your stories (hysterical, at my expense), your tasteless jokes, and any and all expressions gleefully macabre. Come party with the man who has never passed up the chance to poke cancer in the eye and laugh about it.

Date/Time:
Saturday, July 27, 6:PM - ?

Location:
Holiday Inn Portland Airport
8439 NE Columbia Blvd
Portland, OR 97220

We are deeply grateful to the Cascade Writers’ Conference who is gifting us with the cancellation of their Saturday evening programming so that their members can attend JayWake. In addition, they have offered the unused space for our celebration. We are humbled by their generosity.

We are arranging for a group rate for out-of-town guests at the Holiday Inn. Please email tammyjoy6@gmail.com for information on the hotel.

Food and Libations:
There will be a buffet dinner for guests who RSVP. RSVP-ing tells us how many people to prepare for. Please email jaywakereg@gmail.com or reply to the Facebook event to RSVP. Donations will be accepted (but not required) to offset the cost of the meal.

Roast:
The Roast will begin at about 7:30. Be warned: the jokes and stories contained herein will not only push the boundaries of good taste, they will leapfrog over the boundaries blowing a raspberry. This is not a time to say how I touched your life. This is a time to say how I touched you inappropriately. Please contact jaywake.questions@gmail.com for information on being a scheduled speaker.

Donations:
We will be accepting donations to offset the cost of the meal and event. Use the PayPal button below, or contact jaywake.questions@gmail.com if you'd like to donate in another way.



T-Shirts:
T-shirts with a black and white line art version of the art below, by Howard Tayler, will be available. Contact jaywake.questions@gmail.com if you'd like to order one.

Planning to Attend?
If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to jaywakereg@gmail.com or at the Facebook event.
