Weekend Happenings: Memorial Day Edition

Ahh, the glorious three-day weekend is once again upon us. They are few and far between, but they are oh-so-spectacular! More importantly, you can officially pull those white jeans out of the storage boxes you buried them in after labor day! Unless, of course, you’re anything like us and have been wearing them since Labor Day. In which case we applaud your indifference. We’re sure some of you are just visiting Portland for the weekend from St. Elsewhere, and we welcome you to the fabulous city we call home. For those of you who are more into the staycation thing, we’ve dug up a thing or two for you to get busy with as well.

Happening this week: 

  • Start your Memorial Day weekend off right with a tasting at K & M Wines new tasting room. The Friday preview will be followed by availability on Saturday, Sunday and Monday May 26-28. The latest room and art space in Carlton will be open from 11:00AM to 5:00PM each day, offering small production, food-friendly wines with artisinal cheeses and Smitten chocolates and a performance by bluegrass Corral Creek Connection on Monday. Featuring a Chardonnay and four vintages of Pinot Noir that are the product of vines planted in 1983, the $5 tasting fee is refundable upon purchase.
  • Don’t miss the Danner Memorial Day March on Monday, May 28th at 1:30PM. Support the Grand Marshals, OregonDanner Parade Army National Guard and Patriot Guard Riders as bands and patriotic vehicles march through the streets of Portland. Arrive early to stake out a spot along Naito Parkway to catch a glimpse of the Rose Festival’s newest and most patriotic parade as it proceeds from the Burnside Bridge to Salmon Springs Fountain. Hooah.
  • Salute the summer season with one of many upcoming beer Killer Brewfestfestivals. Brewpublic’s Killer Beerfest kicks off on Sunday, May 27th at Bailey’s Taproom. Starting at 2:00PM, guests can sample one-of-a-kind craft beers among a plethora of styles and special one-offs. To help celebrate Brewpublic’s three and a half years in Cascadia, you’ll find bourbon barrel-aged IPAs, smoked lagers, sour, fruit varieties and specialty pours from some of the following regional craft breweries:
