Portland's first major restaurant tasting event returns this Tuesday, May 7 to the downtown McMenamins Crystal Hotel and Ballroom. Last year's unexpectedly windy version at JELD-WEN field has thankfully led to a smaller, less-drafty venue choice, which will gather together samples from more than 40 of Portland's finest restaurants and enough wineries to leave you stumbling despite an inevitably bursting belly. General admission begins at 6:30 pm and will put you out $85 - steep, but worth it - benefiting organizing nonprofit Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry, which works to feed kids across the country (each of its events benefitting primarily local efforts).
McMenamins Crystal Hotel and Ballroom is located at 1332 W Burnside.
UPDATE: And we have a winner! Thanks for playing!
