From our partners at Portland Cocktail Week:

Portland Cocktail Week
October 20-24

Each fall, distillers, bartenders, spirits enthusiasts, and media officials descend on Portland, Oregon for the Great American Distiller's Festival. With a desire to put our own creative cocktail knowledge to work, a few years ago, we began a small, but serious competition called the PDX Cocktail Invitational.

From one bartender competition, we have grown to include four days of seminars, parties, spirit tastings, networking opportunities, and of course more bartender competitions. It is our aim to highlight the best in distillation, engaging bartending and inventive mixology, all wrapped up in the beauty and hospitality of the Pacific Northwest. We bring you the first annual ¬Å“Portland Cocktail Week.¬Â

    How did I not even know about this! I guess I will go if I haaaave to ;)

  2. Trish October 20, 2010 at 3:30 pm #

    I’d like to win because I’ve had a crazy, horrible week (and it’s only half over); The event this weekend looks like a great one, and I’ve love to attend; Can’t afford to buy tickets, so winning is the only way I can go; I’ve got a great idea for a black tie/animal costume, ready to play some pirate golf (I have a costume for that too, if needed) and the ice, ice baby party looks amazing…

  3. Suzz October 20, 2010 at 3:37 pm #

    I need the tickets because my son just moved to NY and I am stuck inside for 12 hours doing parent teacher conferences for 2 days!

  4. Soco October 20, 2010 at 3:41 pm #

    Would love to win tickets to Lupec….thank you, thank you, thank you in advance.

  5. Josie October 20, 2010 at 3:46 pm #

    I would love to go because since I got married I have not done half of the fun and wonderful things that Portland has to offer! The Fall in PDX is amazing and I’d love to share this with my new Hubs!

  6. Mackenzie M. October 20, 2010 at 3:47 pm #

    Okay, I love regular boring stuff that I know, like jack & coke, vodka & OJ! Boring true, I hate buying stuff making & then regretting it. It would be nice to try local beverages, local people & new things! I like is mixed or blended. Go PORTLAND!

    • Mackenzie M. October 20, 2010 at 4:07 pm #

      oh, I forgot to state, any day would be great but Thursday would work out best because I won’t have to call in sick!

  7. Jeannie Johnson October 20, 2010 at 3:49 pm #

    I would love to win tickets to shipwrecked because I’m ready to get my Yoko on and drink cocktails with umbrellas in them.

  8. mackenzie m. October 20, 2010 at 4:04 pm #

    okay, so I like the boring mixes of Jack & Coke, Vodka & OJ, very bland. I am affraid to buy stuff because I will regret it, I just want to know how to mix & make. I want to win to get to know local people, local beverages & local fun.
    I liked it mixed or blended! Go PORTLAND. Keep it weird! Of course I would like any day but Thursday would be best, I have that day off….other days I, won’t have to call in sick to work.

  9. Nicole Prevost October 20, 2010 at 4:07 pm #

    uh, the drinks? Really, just back on the drinks after a month off, so some really great ones would ease me back into the swing of things.

  10. Tina October 20, 2010 at 4:07 pm #

    I want to win because…Well, it’s free booze….need I say more?!

    Thanks, in advance :)

    • Tina October 20, 2010 at 4:10 pm #

      Oh and any of the events work for me!

  11. zee October 20, 2010 at 4:09 pm #

    I’d like tickets for Ship Wrecked on Friday. I’ve never been to Glowing Greens Golf. Anthony Walton from Beaker and Flask will be roasting an entire pig and drinks by Allan Katz from Caña Rum Bar in LA. What a party.

  12. zee October 20, 2010 at 4:12 pm #

    I’d also like to go to the Ice Ice Baby party on Saturday. The ride over to Valley Ice Arena in a double decker bus sounds like fun.

  13. ann October 20, 2010 at 4:25 pm #

    I would love to take the man i love

  14. devon October 20, 2010 at 4:35 pm #

    i just heard about this last night while i was out at teardrop and i can’t wait to be a part of it! :) i’m unemployed and looking (thus far unsuccessfully) for a job, so would LOVE to score some free tickets…

  15. ElPDX October 20, 2010 at 4:50 pm #

    I’d like to go because 1) it sounds awesome, 2) I’m a grad student and if I won free tickets it would justify taking a study break to go have some drinks!

  16. Blake October 20, 2010 at 5:01 pm #

    Anything that involves any sort of drinking, sponsors and meeting new people I’d love to do! :)

  17. Sylvan October 20, 2010 at 5:10 pm #

    Definitely would like to go to these awesome parties – I’m sure they’ll all have great booze! Isn’t that reason enough?

  18. Cameo McRoberts October 20, 2010 at 5:35 pm #

    I would like tickets so that I can afford to run up much higher bartabs and tip better while in Portland for the weekend!!!!

  19. Ben October 20, 2010 at 5:36 pm #

    I was going to make a Cocktail Rhyme, but I’m drunk on cocktails and can’t think of something that rhymes with whiskey.

  20. Berenice October 20, 2010 at 5:53 pm #

    ARRGGGHH me mateys, Ship Wrecked please! I love Beaker & Flask & my mouth is dying to bite into some tender pig roast while I kickass @ some golf! Thanks.

  21. Tracy Schmidt October 20, 2010 at 6:18 pm #

    I would love to win tickets to the LUPEC Masquerade Ball…cause it looks awesome and I am poor…yay!!

  22. Jeff October 20, 2010 at 6:57 pm #

    I want to win! Why? Because I love booze, I love Oregon, and, well… Dammit, I love you too, pdxpipeline! There; I said it

  23. Allison October 20, 2010 at 7:54 pm #

    Portland Cocktail Week?! Seriously?! This is fabulous. Portland is growing on me ever day. Cocktail sampling should be my job, really. I love the tried and true standbys such as plain old martinis, jack and code, and a vodka soda. But I am first in line to try a new concoction – bring on the cocktails!

  24. licorous October 20, 2010 at 7:56 pm #

    I would love to win this pass. The line up looks incredible! Cheers

  25. Allison McGuire October 20, 2010 at 8:16 pm #

    Cocktail Week?! Seriously?! I was MADE for Cocktail Week! I’ve heard of Fleet Week, Awareness of X,Y,Z Day/Week/Month, even Beer. week. Cocktail Week! It’s about time that cocktails get some recognition!

  26. Mike October 20, 2010 at 8:56 pm #

    I’d dig tickets to shipwrecked because it has pig and rum and those are two of the best things in the world.

  27. Matt Shoobridge October 21, 2010 at 12:50 am #

    Ship Wrecked with Don Q Rum! To dance to the tunes from DJ Drew Groove in a glow-in-the-dark Pirate themed golf course!!

  28. C.A. October 21, 2010 at 6:29 am #

    I would like to win because I love the booze sooo much.

  29. Mike October 21, 2010 at 8:48 am #

    This just looks awesome. I mean, seriously, Anthony Walton is roasting a whole pig? I’m in.

  30. barbarahinderer October 21, 2010 at 9:07 am #

    Shipwrecked looks awesome! I mean, pirates, golf, food and alcohol? Talk about an epic party! I want to go!! Plus, rum is my favorite liquor.

  31. Jason Reed October 21, 2010 at 1:39 pm #

    Sounds like fun!

  32. Rachel October 21, 2010 at 2:02 pm #

    I Looove Cocktails! And I Loooove Portland! That makes this local holiday my new favorite :) I would love to attend any of these events! LUPEC Ball? Shipwrecked Party? Ice, Ice, Baby Party? Yes please………

  33. April October 21, 2010 at 4:15 pm #

    Couldn’t imagine anything more fun to do! Sounds like a great event(s).

  34. Lisa October 21, 2010 at 4:22 pm #

    Because I can think of nothing hotter than getting shipwrecked with Drew Groove. Mmmmm…those thick black glasses!

  35. hillary October 21, 2010 at 4:23 pm #

    this sounds like a dream! and i also love the vanilla ice mention – he deserves respect!

  36. Ryan Castle October 21, 2010 at 4:25 pm #

    Would love to go to shipwrecked and get my groove on. Working in restaurants this is one of the rare Fridays that I can actually go out and have others serve me!

  37. Jerry October 21, 2010 at 4:37 pm #

    Man I would love to go to shipwrecked. Miniature golf, glowing greens, spirits. What better place to be in Portland. Thank you pipeline.

  38. Amber Nicole Pfaff October 21, 2010 at 4:39 pm #

    The ‘Ice, Ice Baby’ party sounds like a BUH-LAST!! I would love to win tickets to that!

    First of all, it starts out at the coolest hotel in Portland. They have a drink named after Huey Lewis, for God’s sake! I’ve never actually had the chance to really hang out there but I’ve been ACHING to since I first found out about it. I’m pretty obsessed with Clark Gable and I need to see his portrait in the hall, also.

    Second, being shuttled to a different location on a double decker sounds awesome to me, probably because I’ve never been on one before. Also, said different location is going to contain bars made of ICE!!

    Third, I’ve always wanted to try the food at Irving St. Kitchens but it’s outside my budget. I walk past it frequently and it looks delicious!

    Please PLEASE help me experience these fantastic sounding things!

  39. kristin October 21, 2010 at 4:39 pm #

    i want to go to ship wrecked! sounds like the most amazing party!!

  40. Ari October 21, 2010 at 5:23 pm #

    I should attend because I am the God of you and everything and I implore you to give me tickets before you incur my wrath and I drown this modern Ghemora with my volcanoey vengence!

    I’m also broke and want to take my lady out

  41. James October 21, 2010 at 5:41 pm #

    Fri night sounds fun for me and the lady

  42. Johnny October 21, 2010 at 6:15 pm #

    The perfect time to win tickets. The car is in the shop for a couple of weeks so no problems having a drink :) Perfect opportunity for cocktails and Ice Baby :)


  43. Annmarie October 21, 2010 at 6:52 pm #

    My boyfriend and I just moved here from the east coast and need to explore! What better time then cocktail week? Free tickets would be amazing!

    But Why Is The Rum Gone? (ship wrecked!)

  46. Sandra C. October 21, 2010 at 7:37 pm #

    Pigs in the attic, there’s no denyin’

    This is the best pig you’ve ever had. . .

    My bf is giving me the cold shoulder so a pig in the hand or a world of ice would make everything nice. tix for friday or sat would be

  47. M October 21, 2010 at 7:49 pm #

    I want to go because…well…pig + alcohol = happy.

  48. lisa scarpelli October 21, 2010 at 8:22 pm #

    I like free stuff.

  50. Heather R October 21, 2010 at 11:19 pm #

    How on earth did I not know about this. Ice, Ice Baby sounds like TOOO much fun! I think I’m gonna have to go no matter what. Any time I can get someone else to feed, drink and drive me on the cheap, I’m there! Thanks for letting me know about it! But I’d be happy to win tickets too! ;]

  51. Chris October 22, 2010 at 1:06 am #

    Ice Ice Baby looks like so much fun, I would love to win tickets.

  52. Topher October 22, 2010 at 1:07 am #

  53. ryan October 22, 2010 at 1:10 am #

  55. Ben Hamar October 22, 2010 at 9:51 am #

    I’m the worst bartender in Portland. Going to this will rub my face in what a GOOD COCKTAIL tastes like. Friday would be fine. Saturday would be better.

  56. Sharissa October 22, 2010 at 10:06 am #

    First year doing Halloween fun in PDX! I’d love to go to any of these cocktail events!

  57. Ian October 22, 2010 at 11:43 am #

    My girlfriend and I don’t drink. So there will be more for everybody else! Seriously, though, it sounds like a lot of fun.

  58. Emily October 22, 2010 at 12:20 pm #

    I like to drink cocktails and I like to drink them in Portland. Is it too late to get in on these tickets? :)

  59. Matt October 22, 2010 at 12:23 pm #

    I’d like to win tickets to any of the events because I promise not to fall over.

  60. josh hill October 22, 2010 at 12:33 pm #

    Broke! Need booze!

  61. Eric October 22, 2010 at 12:58 pm #

    I prefer the Shipwreck gig. I pride my sense of style and taste in fine cocktails. I like to hold my glass close to my chest while leaning on something–preferably a bar next to a lovely lady. I’d tell this lady about how much I dig cocktails and drop subtle hints on the impeccable attention I pay to my shirt collar. She’ll notice the great lengths and time I dedicate to properly starching and ironing my collar. If she’s cool enough, she’ll recognize, too, that I use only the finest collar stays available in the free world.

    I would have to exercise caution, though, around the roasted pig, as I’ve, in the very distant past, been known as the guy who sure can put away the free food.

    Temperance regarding the pig, cocktail suaveness, and razor-sharp collar tips will be my contributions to this lovely night.

  62. Cheryl October 22, 2010 at 1:10 pm #

    We are ready for a fun night out!

  63. Nick October 22, 2010 at 1:15 pm #

    Because FREE booze and food sounds amazing!

  64. emily October 22, 2010 at 1:29 pm #

    I wanna go play :) after a long week this event would rock my socks off.

  65. Emily Willard October 22, 2010 at 1:53 pm #

    I would love to go because I like checking out new venues and events around town. I couldn’t afford to go otherwise… winning these tickets would be awesome!

  66. Allyson October 22, 2010 at 1:57 pm #

    I would like to win these tickets because I am very interested in learning more about the different cocktail concoctions that are in existence.

  67. Tonya Nikitin October 22, 2010 at 2:17 pm #

    my boyfriend is renovating his house and I need to take him out for a night on the town!!!!!!
