This weekend is the Portland Seafood and Wine Festival.
It’s a great opportunity to support a wonderful cause. 50 cents from each admission goes to support the Oregon Chapter of the National MS Society: http://www.defeatms.com/ The full lineup of wineries, food vendors, and other vendors is here: http://www.pdxseafoodandwinefestival.com/ Some wineries from the heart of the valley will be there.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to go, as we are tentatively planning on brewing this weekend. A friend of my husband’s is from Brazil, where they don’t necessarily brew a lot of beer, and this friend wants to return to his country with some homebrew knowledge. We’re considering brewing a beer in honor of the San Francisco 49ers with the hope that they win the Super Bowl on Sunday.
