Most of us have a bucket list, and if you don't it is time to write one! I love the feeling of accomplishing items on my list and getting to experience the things that I've been looking forward to. Sometimes the items that tend to stick around for a long time are the ones that are close to home and seemingly easy to do, so it's time to accomplish some goals! Add these items to your bucket list and let's get them done this spring!
March in Portland means Portland Dining Month, where over 100 local restaurants offer a three course meal for only $29. Meals at some of these restaurants can set you back substantially more, sometimes just for an entree, so trying out new places during this month is a great way to experiment, find new favorite places, or get a great value at an otherwise expensive restaurant.

From March 6-March 12 over 40 bars and restaurants all over Portland are presenting unique cocktails made specially for the Highball Event. The drinks are available all day and are only $5 during the event.
