Taste of the Nation Looms!

I’ve been having a terrible recurring nightmare this week. The plot is pretty basic–I’ve just eaten the biggest meal of my life, only to look at my watch and have the horrifying realization that Taste of the Nation starts in mere minutes. My favorite food event of the year has finally arrived and I’M FULL! Suffice to say, I’ll be restricting my diet this Monday to six peas and a small glass of grappa so I’m ready to graze, gorge, sip and socialize all night long.


If you’re wondering what on earth I’m talking about, on Monday, April 26, Share Our Strength‘s 23rd Annual Taste of the Nation fundraiser brings its yearly dose of charitable gluttony to Portland. Your ticket includes unlimited tastes and pours from over 50 restaurants, 20 wineries, and five breweries, and with the roll call featuring gastronomic A-listers like Beaker & FlaskBeastGruner, andSimpatica Dining Hall, you’ll have to be rolled home a la Violet Beauregarde–just don’t crush the Saint Cupcakes stuffed in your pockets.

Hope to see you there! More info and tickets here>>
