Marmo to Host Gay-Friendly “Ciao, Tom,” Night on Tuesdays

Monday, July 20, 2015

Marmo, the super cool downtown Italian deli and bar, is celebrating its opening with a brand new after work party called “Ciao, Tom” happening on Tuesday nights.

“Ciao, Tom” refers to “The Talented Mr. Ripley” that 1998 flick starring Matt Damon and Jude Law.  “In late 1950s New York, Tom Ripley, a young underachiever, is sent to Italy to retrieve a rich and spoiled millionaire playboy, named Dickie Greenleaf. But when the errand fails, Ripley takes extreme measures,” so goes the IMDB listing for the classic film with a healthy dose of homoeroticism.  

Italy inspires us. So do gay nights at local bars.

Owner Kevin Chambers (who just so happens to be one of the most attractive people in Portland) says the reason for the party is simple: “We're new to the West End, and we want to meet you.” 

So, polish your loafers or stilettos and clink glasses filled with Marmo's latest batch of Limoncello. Ciao, baby! 

“Ciao, Tom, Tuesdays," drink and food specials from 5:30-8:30 pm, Marmo, 1037 SW Morrison St. 503-224-0654. marmopdx.com

Departure

This is the crown jewel of outdoor imbibing in Portland. The high rise location with panoramic views is a great place to sip in the sun! The cocktail menu features great flavors that will transplant you to a tropical destination. Pair it with some delicious bites from a menu crafted by Chef Gregory Gourdet for a fabulous evening.

Rum Club

It’s been said that time flies when you’re drinking rum. And that’s especially so on this out of the way covered patio on Sandy Blvd. While there’s a strong focus on rum here, you can enjoy plenty of other spirits, beer, and wine. The diverse cocktail list and well curated selection of bites keep this on my favorites list.

Landmark Saloon 

The Landmark Saloon is a renovated house on Division Street. It’s quite small, even by house standards. However, what they lack in square footage for indoor seating is more than redeemed with all of the picnic tables, fire pits, second bars, cornhole boards, and trees in their adjacent yard where you can laze away a beautiful summer day.

Vendetta

The large open air space behind this North Williams bar is a classic Portland place to spend a hot summer day. And the space is huge. Hanging with a large group? No problem. The landscaping, with an oddly satisfying, crunchy pea gravel, is inviting, the staff is great, and the beer here is very cold. Bonus: If it gets too hot out, slip inside for a round of shuffleboard.

Rae's Lakeview Lounge

While there’s no view and no lake, there is plenty to love about this hidden spot near Montgomery Park. Enjoy weekend brunch and food and drinks until late on the dog-friendly open patio. This is a great place to day drink on a Saturday afternoon while catching up with an old friend.

Caldera Public House

While the interior has a way of transporting guests back to the days of pub culture, those who make the effort to head out to the garden will be rewarded. It’s secluded and lush and by the first sip of your pint, you’ll forget all about the hustle and bustle of rush hour happening just a few feet away.

Teote  

You’d be forgiven for not discovering the back patio of Teote right off of lower Hawthorne. Orders are taken at the counter on the first floor, but follow the stairs up and then meander your way to the back of the house where the second floor spills out into lovely back patio complete with a second bar and a fire pit. I’m still trying to figure out how to you get to the back yard by going upstairs. Plus, the food and drinks are delicious and affordable.

Barrio at Portland Mercado

With so much buzz about the new Latino market on Foster Avenue opening later this month, it’s only fitting that they’re incorporating a bottle shop into the list of retailers. Pop into Barrio Bottle Shop and grab a beer for dining in at one of the food carts. The patio is covered and heated to help prolong Portland’s short summer season.

This beer-centric restaurant will offer a full menu, 16 taps, extensive wine list, and patio seating for 100+. The early May opening can’t happen soon enough for this curious tippler!
