Feast Portland begins in a mere two hours, and we promise that the Mercury Dining twitter account will be a frenzy of activity over the next few days to bring you photos and updates of this early culinary Christmas. Starting with the (nearly sold out!) Sandwich Invitational and ending with exclusive after-party coverage, we'll bring you along for the ride. Many tickets are still available for events like the Oregon Grand Bounty Tasting and select seminars and speaker series, but even if you missed the boat (or didn't feel like blowing $100 plus on a few hours of eating) you can watch us eat, drink, and schmooze with visiting celebrity chefs (Eeee! Matt Lightner returns!) Follow us! Join the fun! And we'll see you at the gym next week, working off the pounds of hazelnut-bacon-and-blackberry-topped something and pinot noir we'll be consuming through Sunday.
