Feast Portland concluded three days ago yet I am only now beginning to recover from the most epic weekend of 2015.
Being a busy week at work as well, Night Market was one of the events that I was free to roam at my own accord (only to have to Uber out right after to set up Recovery Gift Bags for our infamous Restaurant Flip Cup Unofficial After Party).
I was #blessed enough to go to Night Market last year as well; and it is still just as impressive if not more impressive than it was in 2014. Night Market takes place in Zidell Yards, a beautiful wide open space at the Southwest Waterfront overlooking the Willamette River and the newly constructed Tilikum Bridge. DJ Anjali provided Bollywood-inspired beats and daisy chain lights hung across the corridor of chef/distiller/sponsor booths as the transition from daylight to sunset occurred.
Night Market last year wowed me away but this year…man, it was next level probably because I now have more blogger/media peep friends, got to saber a champagne bottle (well…with Tommy Klus’ help), eat multiple helpings of Kachka pelmeni and see the Noble Rot crew (plus my boss) dressed like Duke boys. Oh and of course there was the Little Green Pickle Karaoke bus to the venue which is always the icing on the cake (or rather the foam to my champagne). Anyhow, I’ll do that whole “show not tell” thing and let the photos speak and inject you with enough FOMO to jump on tickets for Night Market at Feast 2016.
