FOOD EVENT SPOTLIGHT
Portland Monthly's Country Brunch is BACK!
Tickets are now on sale for the June 22 hoedown featuring breakfast fare from six top Portland restaurants and six of the city's best bloody marys.
Attention weekend food warriors: it’s time, once again, to rise and dine!
Join us for our third annual Country Brunch on Sunday, June 22—part brunch bonanza and part Bloody Mary competition, attendees will help crown this year’s Bloody Mary Smackdown champion and enjoy Portland’s favorite meal of the day. This event sells out fast every year, so don't miss your chance to join the fun.
Brunch will be provided by:
- Chef Matt Christianson from Urban Farmer
- Chefs Karen Pride & Brittney Galloway from Harlow
- Chef Johanna Ware from Smallwares
- Chef Rick Gencarelli from Lardo
- Chef Jose Chesa from Ataula
- Chefs Michael Madigan & Jeff McCarthy from TenTop
On the boozy side of things, bloodies will be shaken up by:
- Irving Street Kitchen
(2012 People’s & Judges’ Choice Champion, 2013 People’s Choice Champ)
- Le Bistro Montage (2013 Judges’ Choice Champion)
- Doug Fir
In addition to brunch, guests will enjoy bottomless Manmosas (a manly mashup of beer and orange juice) by Miller Highlife and Crispin Cider and special entertainment from local favorites Foghorn Stringband.
100 percent of net proceeds benefit Zenger Farm’s bold new Urban Grange, an 8,960-square-foot facility on the farm for classes, business incubation, and events for its ongoing efforts to connect Portland communities to fresh-grown food.
