Portland’s Taste of the Nation was such an amazing event! I was impressed/pleased/astounded by each and every item the passed my lips. While I realize now that I only took pictures of food really, don’t let that fool you–there were many lovely drink options available from Bull Run Distillery to Pfriem Brewers. I even jumped into a fun photo booth for a few pics! Please enjoy my vision through the lens at this phenomenal event.
