Bar Mitzvah At Porter Portland Hotel
Nelson’s Bar Mitzvah celebration was held at the new Porter Portland Hotel on Saturday, August 24, 2019 in Portland, Oregon. This was my first time performing here as this Hilton property just opened in April of this year.
Guests gathered first for cocktails on the Pendleton Patio outside and what a view between this hotel and the KOIN tower next door.
The main party was held in the Rose City Ballroom. While the adults were on the patio, Nelson and his friends were in the ballroom with me and I led them in a scavenger hunt before everyone found their seats for dinner.
The main entertainment was Hart Keene, who performs a unique style of interactive illusion and mentalism all over the country and has appeared on numerous television programs, including “America’s Got Talent,” “The Librarians” and “Penn and Teller: Fool Us!” After his opener was turning an empty soda bottle into a full glass of wine, the crowd was in for a treat as he wowed everyone with his magic.
Hart was a tough act to follow, but most everyone joined in the fun for “The Hora” and danced to a variety of uptempo hit music in the short time we had left… everything from “Happy” and “I Gotta Feeling” to “Uptown Funk” and “Shut Up and Dance.”
Mazel Tov Nelson and thank you parents Robin and Lee for choosing PRO DJs.
