It’s Feast Week!

Thu–Sun, Sept 14–17, all around town
Most events at Portland’s sixth annual mega food fest are sold out, but there are still a few tickets available to things like the Grand Tasting and a “fun-sized” Because Breakfast. Even if you miss the main event, the whole town will be celebrating with special dishes, menus, and deals. Even New Seasons is in on the game, with special one-off beers from Hopworks, mocha milkshake bars from Alma, and Tillamook cheddar cheese sausage from Olympia Provisions. Hunt for tickets here.
