Establishing something new in Portland’s crowded summer neighborhood events calendar isn’t easy, but it appears that Rebecca Lehman and the Beaumont Business Association have done it. Their Second Friday event idea was to provide a little “something extra,” a little extra incentive, to begin a weekend with a visit to their street. This has been an informal gathering and free snacks at a participating business (last month J.M.A. Realty), plus some street vendors – they attracted 12 in April and double that number in May. The greater number allows the association to spread out the street activity to include more of the street. Every second Friday of the month from 5 to 7 p.m. Check it out!
