As much as I love fall, I have a hard time with the transition from summer to fall. I mourn the loss of sunny days, BBQ’s, and outdoor activities—from paddle boarding in South Lake Union to hiking in the Cascades. However, one consolation that comes with the close of summer is Feast Portland’s phenomenal food and drink festival. We look forward to it all year, with the countdown officially beginning when tickets go on sale in May.
Feast Portland is back September 14th-17th, 2017, and better than ever!
Looking for a good excuse to eat your way through charming, welcoming Portland? We know, we know; it’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. Chew on this: During the entire month of March, PDX serves up 31 days of delectable fare at a price that may—upon first glance—seem like a typo.
Celebrating its 5th birthday last weekend, this year’s Feast Portland was the best one yet. Minus a little rain on Saturday, it was another successful food & wine festival. If you haven’t been, you should mark your calendar for next May when tickets go on sale—it’s not to be missed. A few of the Seattleite staff writers took a road trip down to Portland and enjoyed a weekend of glorious feasting. There’s some amazing talent in Portland and they are making innovative and delicious food.
Coloring isn’t just for kids anymore.
Adult coloring books are everywhere these days. You can find them in gift shops, bookstores, craft stores, and online. Touted for their powers of stress-reduction and mindfulness, coloring books with intricate designs are a welcome reprieve from staring at a screen all day. They help quiet the mind and give us something to do when we’re binging on Netflix. It’s a fun activity to do with friends while catching up at a coffee shop or cafe and makes a thoughtful gift as well.
Mark your calendar! Feast Portland returns for year five September 15-18
