Toast Portland Giveaway!

I am so excited to bring you a local event giveaway today! I am personally over the moon that Ben and I are going to be attending Toast Portland in just a week and a half at the Left Bank Annex on the East side and I couldn't help but share a bit about the event with you. 

This is the fifth annual Toast - the premier artisan spirits tasting in the Northwest that features over forty distilleries from the Northwest and delicious bites from local chefs. It's the prime opportunity to taste the wide range of liquors and spirits from Oregon's own. Ben and I have most of the local distilleries on our ever-expanding list of things we must do here in Oregon, but our quest to try all of the metro-area breweries has derailed us! In the past year and a half, we have visited only three of the local distilleries (and there are obviously almost 40 in Oregon) - Eastside Distilling, Clear Creek Distillery, and Bull Run. I feel a bit ashamed that we haven't branched out further, but we do focus our liquor purchases on local liquor. Some current favorites being Bull Run Distilling's Temperance Trader Bourbon, Aria Gin, Bull Run's Aquavit, Crater Lake Voda, Clear Creek's Pear Brandy and Clear Creek's McCarthy's Single Malt Whiskey. 

Apparently it's going to take the event on March 7th to expand our local liquor tasting list! 

Want to buy some tickets for you and your friends? They're on sale now here for the March 7, 4-10p.m. event at the Left Bank Annex near the Moda Center. A general admission ticket is $45 and gets you a commemorative tasting glass, a tasting book, unlimited bites and samples, and the opportunity to purchase cocktails from the bar/exclusive products from the distilleries. A VIP ticket is $60 and includes two drinks from the bar, access to the distillers after party and VIP lounge.

This giveaway will run through Tuesday of next week, March 3, and the winner will be randomly selected and contacted that day! Must be able to attend on March 7th and be over 21 years of age. Enter below:
