Portland Dining Month


Yes, you’ve already heard me talk about this–but that’s besides the point! If you are hosting family in town or planning an evening out with your better half, this year’s Portland Dining Month features restaurants for all tastes and is an extremely affordable special night out!

Portland Fuit Beer Festival

June 8th & 9th
VIP entry at 10am Saturday
General Public Saturday 11am-9pm | Sunday 11am-6pm

If you’ve ever wanted to see me at my happiest–you will find me at the Portland Fruit Beer Fest this weekend! Hosted at Burnside Brewery, this event will feature some exciting experimental beer and a few amazing collaborations (Bushwhacker Cidery and Upright Brewing especially)! I also have seen a lot about Breakside Brewery‘s Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Beer prep; let me just say it looks very interesting.

The Gorge Blues & Brews

June 21st-22nd
Friday 6pm-10pm
Saturday Noon-10pm

I’ve heard some pretty awesome things about the Gorge Blues & Brews. What have I heard, you might ask? It’s a fest full of talented artists, delectable brews, and gorgeous views. Brewers like Walking Man, Ninkasi, and Breakside will be quenching thirst willst sweet tunes will fill the Gorge. The best part of this two day fest? You can camp in the Gorge or stay in one of the local lodges.

Sake Fest PDX

Thursday, June 27th

If you’re a sake fan like me you’ve got to get moving to the Sake Fest hosted at the Governor Hotel at the end of June. Sake has a special place in my heart because it’s gluten-free and packs quite the wallop in small mounts, and just think what 100+ samples of sake, plum wine, and beer will do! Maybe take the Max to this event so you can thoroughly enjoy yourself. Tickets grant you access, a SakeMoto logo glass, tastings, and it also sounds like the opportunity to enjoy some local cuisine as well. Check out the Pour List.
