You forgot about Feast and now your Twitter feed is all #feastpdx all the time, and your Instagram is flooded with pre-party food porn. You can go offline and sulk for the next four days, or you can join the party, because there are still tickets left to a handful of events.
The festival officially kicks off tonight with the Widmer Brothers Sandwich Invitational in Director Park. More than a dozen chefs, including big names like Atlanta's Hugh Acheson, will push the limits of what goes between two slices of bread. Tickets are $95.
Friday and Saturday, Pioneer Square becomes an open gourmet market for the Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting. For $60, you can sample some of the state's best wines, beers, cheeses, chocolates and other artisan foods. While you gorge, chefs take the stage to teach you their tricks.
Saturday night's High Comfort brings an onslaught of luxe foods from heavy hitters in Portland and around the country, including Jamie Bissonnette of Toro, chef and cookbook author Edward Lee of 610 Magnolia, and Philip Krajeck of Rolf & Daughters. Tickets are $175.
Looking for a sit-down dinner? San Francisco's Chris Cosentino joins Bluehour's Kyo Koo for a special multi-course wine dinner for $150.
