Portland Animal Defense league will be continuing its anti-foie gras campaign this Friday, May 30th. Please join us and let Blue Hour know that the torture of ducks and geese for the "delicacy" of foie gras will not be tolerated in Portland! We will be meeting at 6:30 at the courner of 10th and Davis. That is in the Pearl district downtown. We will then walk to the restaurant 'Blue Hour' where foie gras is prominently featured on their menu.
