What are you doing Thursday evening? No plans?? Why not come out, have some fun and get some cool stuff!?! [Um, some FREE stuff!! Keep readingâ€¦.]
This Thursday happens to be Last Thursday, that one special day of the month the Alberta Arts District turns their charming little neighborhood into a spectacle of art and entertainment for all ages to enjoy. Even better, DRY Sodaâ€™s Savor the Flavor Tour is making Last Thursday their official Portland stop that night!
So what better place for me to hang out with my pals from DRY Soda and meet up with some of my other favorite pals: YOU GUYS!! Iâ€™m officially inviting all of you to come hangout and enjoy the festivities with us, rain or shineâ€”but letâ€™s hope for some sunshine!
Not only that, but if you stop by the DRY Soda Truck and tell us the â€œsecretâ€ password (see below), youâ€™ll get a special treat from Stumptown Lunch and DRY Soda!
Could anything be cooler than that?
Well…the DRY Soda Truck is going to be parked right outside Salt & Straw (they make delicious small-batch, homemade ice cream that even Oprah loves), so you can pop in and buy yourself a couple of creamy scoops for dessert! That’s pretty darn cool, too! (Again, letâ€™s hope for sunshineâ€¦.)
Here’s the information:
When: Thursday, March 29, 2012
Where: DRY Sodaâ€™s Tour Truck will be parked just outside of Salt & Straw
Map:Â 2035 NE Alberta Street
Time: 5 Â to 8 p.m. Secret Password: Put A Bird On It!
Feel free to shoot me an email or tweet me to let me know if youâ€™re going to stop by! Hope to see you Thursday!!
Busy, BUSY weekend here in Stumptown. We have many more Bite photos to post, but in the meantime take a taste of the 2011 event! Cheers! P.S., The Bite runs 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday, so you still have time to check out the delicious treats yourself.
Ready for The Bite of Oregon this weekend? We are!! It’s our favorite summer food weekend of the year. We love to taste-test delicious tidbits from all around our beautiful state. Great food, delightful drinks, rockin’ entertainment and a fun crowd…all that, and it benefits Special Olympics Oregon! Awesome!
We’d been excited about Kenny and Zuke’s 1st Annual Pickle Throwdown for months, so when we woke up Saturday morning we were totally ready for some pickle tasting madness…and we weren’t disappointed. Although the venue was a bit on the small side for the large crowd that showed up (it was held at Kenny and Zuke’s off-shoot SandwichWorks on NW Thurman), the event was a super fun success! We already can’t wait for next year!!
When we arrived Saturday afternoon the lines were long and daunting, but we were quite surprised the lines moved quickly and everyone was in a cheerful mood. What’s a little wait when there is beer at the other end of the line, right? Although, we did decide to “hold it” when we saw that the longest lines at the festival were to use the Porta-Potties! 😉
Â Who else is super excited for the Bite of Oregon? It runs from August 8 to 10, and this year seems jam-packed with cool stuff–not to mention all the food!
The Lunch Lady is going on both Friday and Saturday (follow our live Twitter coverage), then not planning to eat at all on Sunday! We are psyched to see the Crazy 8â€™s are playing on Friday night. We heard from the bandâ€™s trombone player, Tim Tubb, who is really excited to take the stage for what will surely be a rowdy-fun performance.
On Saturday Cat Cora from Iron Chef America will be a guest for Iron Chef Oregon and later that night the MarchFourth Marching Band performs!
I guess I shouldnâ€™t forget about the main attraction: All the food!
I am already looking forward to a Kobe beef slider from Rogue Ales Public House, the bay shrimp and scallop ceviche from Haydenâ€™s Lakefront Grill and the Oregon steak and cheese sandwich from the Chefâ€™s de Cuisine Society of Oregon.
Warning: Donâ€™t read the Biteâ€™s menu if you are hungry! It all sounds so tasty.
The Bite’s added bonus this year: An all-Oregon beer garden!
