    Wow, a whole event about the best thing in the world! Who wouldn’t want to go! I would take my friend, her and I don’t get to go out much and the best girls night out would definitely include chocolate!

  5. Miranda T. January 11, 2012 at 11:07 am #

    Aw, I would like to win because I am newly single, couldn’t afford this otherwise (looking at some *lifestyle changes* now that I won’t be splitting my expenses with another person for a while), and sure as Hell don’t care about my weight right now!

  6. Angie G January 11, 2012 at 11:16 am #

    I’m notorious for eating chocolate cake for breakfast, brownies for lunch, chocolate fondue for dinner. Why not?! It’s a food that cures what ales ya and brings people together….. what a perfect event!

  7. Nicole January 11, 2012 at 11:18 am #

    What! Chocolate Festival?! I had no idea. Yes, please.

  8. Em January 11, 2012 at 11:24 am #

    This week I’m celebrating my 30th birthday and I’ve been told it’s all downhill from here. Is it possible they’re wrong and I have nothing but good health, glorious wealth and delicious chocolate to look forward to?

    Prove them wrong, PDX Pipeline. Prove them wrong.

  9. marisa January 11, 2012 at 11:28 am #

  57. Keri Ann January 12, 2012 at 3:28 pm #

    I tried to win these last year with no luck. Help some poor ladies spoil ourselves with some delicious treats!! We’re even more poor than we were last year! I could never buy myself fancy chocolates. I have been rationing out cadbury eggs from last year that my mother sent me just to ensure I can always have a chocolate fix.

  58. Andrea January 12, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    Please pick me!! What a way to fuck off my resolution of eating less candy!!

  59. Brian January 12, 2012 at 3:32 pm #

  62. Romina January 12, 2012 at 3:36 pm #

    My boss is a CHOCOLATE QUEEN! And has a two year old; doesn’t get out much. She’s been eyeing this festival and I’d LOVE to be able to treat her to it. Would be the highlight of the New Year :)

  63. Digita1 Panda January 12, 2012 at 3:37 pm #

    Chocolattttaaaaaaaa!

  64. Eric January 12, 2012 at 3:38 pm #

    Um, if it’s chocolicious, then I’ll find it… let me represent the Pipeline in sniffing out the best at this years NW Chocofest

  65. Trish January 12, 2012 at 3:38 pm #

    Chocolate O How I Love Thee
    Your sensational aroma wafting up my nasal orifice
    Soft, and creamy as you brush past my lips
    Velvety, and luxurious, melting on my tongue.
    Scrumptious
    Belgian, Swiss, Epicurean, Leonida, Local…I LOVE YOU ALL
    You make me yearn for more!
    The Portland Chocolate Festival is an amazing experience. Lots of educational activities, and wonderful samples of unusual products using chocolate as an ingredient ie chocolate beer, chocolate bread, rich hot chocolate that rivals the best in Paris.
    I look so forward to this wonderful annual experience.

  66. Mark Clark January 12, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    This will fall on my 6 month anniversary to my wonderful wife. How better to celebrate than with dark intoxicating chocolate!

  67. Carolyn Wiesner January 12, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    As a chocolate lover I have definitely heard about this fest before and wanted to go. I would love to be able to give it a try while still being able to pay my bills for the month.

  68. T Solano January 12, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

    Chocolate is wonderful in all it’s forms. I would love to partake of this fabulous feast!

  69. Randi January 12, 2012 at 3:43 pm #

    I don’t particularly like chocolate :)

  70. Holly January 12, 2012 at 3:45 pm #

    I love chocolate! And I’d love the tickets. :)

  71. CC January 12, 2012 at 3:47 pm #

    Would love to go, I’ve never been

  72. Farrah January 12, 2012 at 3:47 pm #

    I am pregnant, and pregnant ladies need chocolate! :)

  73. Sandy January 12, 2012 at 3:48 pm #

    I would love to be able to attend the chocolate fest! What a treat.

  74. Howard Weiner January 12, 2012 at 3:48 pm #

    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M’s and a chocolate cake. I feel better already. Imagine how good I will feel after winning entry to chocolate nirvana. (With apologies to Dave Barry)

  75. Denise January 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm #

    My girlfriend loves chocolate and I would love to surprise her with tickets to this wonderful event. Please pick me. Thank you.

  76. Ursa January 12, 2012 at 3:51 pm #

    Chocolate? Did someone say CHOCOLATE???

  77. Johnny January 12, 2012 at 3:51 pm #

    An early Valentines present :) That should set the tone for a year of romance and fun!

  78. Mark January 12, 2012 at 3:54 pm #

    Chocolate.
    Chocolate.
    CHOCOLATE!!

    ‘Nuff said.

  79. gray ayer January 12, 2012 at 3:55 pm #

    once upon a time in a Midwestern town of Ann Arbor Michigan my mother annually put together a fundraiser event called the “chocolate extravaganza” putting together the county’s finest chocolatiers. Unfortunately, I did not develop an appreciation for this confection until I moved out to the Northwest and thus could not take advantage of the bountiful free chocolate back home. but if you give me tickets, that’ll make up for it just a little bit.

  80. Sue Aguirre January 12, 2012 at 4:00 pm #

    Sounds amazing! Chocolate is a (forgiving) weakness :) Plus my kids would love it too!

  81. Terry January 12, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

    I’d love me some chocolate…and a chocolate weekend, at that!

  82. Navi January 12, 2012 at 4:13 pm #

    Chocolate lover’s dreaaaaam!! Comeon!!! Cannot wait to stuff my face!!!

  83. Tania Porter January 12, 2012 at 4:24 pm #

    I eat low carb and am forever in search of the perfect dark chocolate, the darker the better. What a chance to see what Portland’s chocalatiers have to offer!!

  84. Meghan January 12, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

    I’m not even going to bother explaining why I would want to win this. It’s chocolate. Nothing else needs to be said.

  85. Vivian January 12, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    You had me at ‘chocolate’.

  86. Shelby January 12, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

    I’d like to win so that I can make myself sick on chocolate, call in to work on Monday, and continue to eat more chocolate.

  87. Kristie January 12, 2012 at 4:31 pm #

    Need more chocolate!!!!

    After all, terrible things happen if I run out, just ask my co-workers!

  88. roy January 12, 2012 at 4:42 pm #

    chocolate tastes great and is health to

  89. Donald January 12, 2012 at 4:43 pm #

    Chocolate? I’m there!! Pretty please?!?!

  90. Jeff January 12, 2012 at 4:56 pm #

    You provide the chocolate and I’ll provide the liquor. Take that OLCC!

  91. Ally Guest January 12, 2012 at 5:03 pm #

    I want chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate. I want a chocolate pie in the sky!

  92. Marita January 12, 2012 at 5:09 pm #

    Love me some Chocolate~…really need me some Chocolate~…need Chocolate~ to live…need to live…please give me some Chocolate covered tickets… :)

  93. Annah January 12, 2012 at 5:16 pm #

    I would like to win because, apparently, I make men crave chocolate. You can take that any way you like. :) But the chocolate would be mine. All mine.

    Also, I’m black. And chocolate, as a brown comedian once said, is the one good thing we have that our Eurocentric society can’t take away from us.

    Dark (they say) = bad/evil, etc.

    But chocolate (we all say) = delicious, decadent, universally (in some cases, literally,) to die for goodness

    Sorry! White chocolate = fake chocolate

    OK. I’m done. Give me the prize already please.

  94. Dave January 12, 2012 at 5:17 pm #

    I’m in serious trouble and you, my friend, are the only one who can bail me out. My wife’s birthday was yesterday and I opted to play in my City League basketball game instead of taking her out to dinner (which I’m going to do tonight). My wife was so upset that she ended up going out with a friend and her friend’s husband, both of whom told my wife what a jerk I was for playing ball instead of taking her out. But being that my wife has a fondness, or rather, an obsession for chocolate, I think that I could score some serious points and get out of the doghouse by taking her to the Chocolate Festival. Can you help a brother out?

  95. Courtney Condren January 12, 2012 at 5:22 pm #

    I really want to win this! I have missed this festival every year, and would love to go this year. I adore chocolate and can thin of no better way to spend the weekend than this festival.

  96. ian January 12, 2012 at 5:25 pm #

    I love chocolate more than homer simpson loves beer!

  97. Kristi January 12, 2012 at 5:31 pm #

    I’ll just take the basket and tickets please pull the martini and put in a non alcoholic drink thank you

  98. Lori B Deyarmond January 12, 2012 at 5:32 pm #

    Me + Chocolate = Happiness

  99. daVe January 12, 2012 at 5:35 pm #

    just lost my girlfriend, trying to win her back. this might just do it. or if it doesn’t, maybe i can get a new one with it. at the very least, it’ll allow me an eve of gluttony, even if it has to be with my xbox buddy joe.

  100. Shelley January 12, 2012 at 5:45 pm #

    I would love to attend! Makes me think of Charlie’s adventures in the Chocolate Factory!

  101. Amy B January 12, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    Certified chocoholic in serious withdrawal and in serious need of rX relief! Must. Eat. Cocolate.

  102. Catiesur January 12, 2012 at 6:15 pm #

    Chocolate Fest is great. Absolutely loved it last year!

  103. Dan January 12, 2012 at 6:22 pm #

    Last year, when I went back for my third or fourth sample of their chocolate martini, Leonidas told me how to make it at home. Guess what? I forgot the recipe (possibly because I’d had too much chocolate to think straight at that point). Thoughts of that intoxicating martini have been haunting me since. Seriously, I dream about it. I’ve waited a whole year. Reunite me with my dream, Pipeline…

  104. Minna January 12, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    Chocolate *and* socks? How can you not enter to try to win?!

  105. drew January 12, 2012 at 6:29 pm #

    My mom is a chocolaholic and I would love to take her to this. I didnt even know about this sort of thang then saw I could win tickets to it. This would be the perfect night for a son and his mother to enjoy some chocolate. Thanks

  106. Tom January 12, 2012 at 6:43 pm #

    Exactly what drew said above me- except -I- would be more grateful. ;-)

  116. faye January 12, 2012 at 8:48 pm #

    My partner and I have had some really really rough times and this would be a great way to see the positives in life again. It would be a nice surprise, especially since the pocketbook is on near empty…

  117. James January 12, 2012 at 8:49 pm #

    Chocolate belongs on and in everthing!
    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!

  118. Holland January 12, 2012 at 8:58 pm #

    Mmm Chocolate!

  119. Mike H January 12, 2012 at 9:07 pm #

    My wife is in her 3rd trimester. Our little girl is to be born in mid-march. All the honking baby books are telling us that chocolate is good for both the baby & the baby mamma. Every other person we know tells us to get out & enjoy life as a couple before we surrender, ahem, I mean welcome, our new life as a family. Winning tickets would help ups cover most of these bases & get the experts off our backs.

  120. Ashley January 12, 2012 at 9:12 pm #

    That day is my friend’s 24th birthday and I would love to take her because she loves chocolate! We need a trip to Portland to get away from Eugene : )

  121. Kelly January 12, 2012 at 9:14 pm #

    I would like to win some Chocolates so I can hate it with my mom who loves to er Chocolates! Chocolates makes me happy specially I need to concentrate at work. Plus it’s a natural skin anti-oxidant! Yummy!

  123. Megan January 12, 2012 at 9:59 pm #

    I was out of town for it last year and would love to go this time around. And I love chocolate!

  124. Andrea January 12, 2012 at 10:12 pm #

    It’s my girlfriend’s birthday and she adores chocolate.

  125. Jax January 12, 2012 at 10:14 pm #

    Ummmmmmmm…chocolate….doh!

  126. Gayle n Tab January 12, 2012 at 10:38 pm #

    What a rush. Though my boy does not drink, I’d love to try Leonida’s chocolate martini. Swoon worthy to be surrounded by the intoxicating aroma of chocolate in all its forms!

  127. Chioma January 12, 2012 at 10:39 pm #

    I would LOVE to go to the chocolate festival this year! If I don’t win tickets, you may find me near the trash bins smelling wrappers.

  128. Maria T January 12, 2012 at 10:51 pm #

    Chocolate is a thing that I love the most in life, I cannot live without it! I have never been to the Chocofest, it would probably make me the happiest person in the world to be given a chance to attend!

  129. Vlad January 12, 2012 at 10:57 pm #

    C.H.O.C.O.L.A.T.E = coco = chocolat = shokolad
    – sweet words, I only know but one language, such smooth, rich, silky, decadent deliciousness! The ultimate aphrodisiac! Passionately prepared to pack on the pounds in honor of my great LOVE!
    Swiss, Belgian, dark, milk, white – so much goodness!
    Please grant me this sinful pleasure! Allow my taste buds to meet the wonders of Portland Chocolate Festival!

  130. RJC January 12, 2012 at 11:00 pm #

    I’d love to go to this!

  131. Erik Pierson January 12, 2012 at 11:21 pm #

    Chocolate is one of my favorite things. A festival based on it is almost cliché! I need to go!!!

  132. Rachel January 12, 2012 at 11:22 pm #

    Chocolate is the best! I’d love to take my sister to this festival.

  133. Catherine Matsuura January 12, 2012 at 11:39 pm #

    sounds interesting, how much chocolate can there be?

  134. Myra January 12, 2012 at 11:41 pm #

    I would love to go to support the forestry center by eating my favorite dessert :)

  135. Myra January 12, 2012 at 11:45 pm #

  141. Andrea January 13, 2012 at 4:49 am #

    What’s a better way to spend an evening then by sampling chocolates & adult beverages with friends for a good cause! I have never been to this festival but it sounds amazingly fun & I look forward to seeing what they have to offer! Hopefully there will be organic items. I love supporting community events whenever possible.

  142. Joe M. January 13, 2012 at 7:23 am #

    I love chocolate and happy to know it supports the World Forestry Center!

  143. Natalie January 13, 2012 at 7:50 am #

    I want to win because: HELLO!! It’s called Chocolatefest! Just the name means it is all that is good in the world. Honestly, I’ve been attending since it was at the Forestry Center & it would be nice to actually win something for a change.

  144. big momma January 13, 2012 at 7:52 am #

    I’ve always been a loser and now I wanna be a Winenr!!!
    Bring on the chocolate please.

  145. Nay Shayan January 13, 2012 at 8:35 am #

    My boyfriend and I both love chocolate and really want to go to this.

  146. Marty January 13, 2012 at 9:16 am #

  149. Stacey Watanabe January 13, 2012 at 9:51 am #

    I would love to win the tickets for Friday night. It would be the perfect way to cap off the week.. I could swing to my hubby’s work, pick him up and surprise him with a chocolate bonanza! It would be so much fun. I hope I win!!

  150. Maggie January 13, 2012 at 9:54 am #

    This guy found a bottle on the ocean, and he opened it and out popped a genie, and he gave him three wishes. The guy wished for a million dollars, and poof! there was a million dollars. Then he wished for a convertible, and poof! there was a convertible. And then, he wished he could be irresistible to all women… poof! he turned into a box of chocolates. Ahhh….chocolate is irresistible!! Would love to go to the Northwest Chocolate Festival…

  151. Terri Elliff January 13, 2012 at 10:05 am #

    Chocolate is one of my few true vices… Chocolate and coffee are in a constant battle to see which one can corrupt me the most ;-)

  152. Aaron Levinson January 13, 2012 at 11:24 am #

    Mmmmmmm Chocolate! I can’t think of anything I desire more.

  153. Alana January 13, 2012 at 11:49 am #

    I used to sell chocolate and now I’m working in construction.
    Quite the extremes huh? I still have a secret passion for chocolate and would love to go…

  154. Michele Young January 13, 2012 at 11:50 am #

  158. Suzie Ramirez January 13, 2012 at 1:06 pm #

  163. Jenn January 13, 2012 at 2:59 pm #

  168. Ashleigh January 13, 2012 at 5:55 pm #

    Mmmm! A festival devoted entirely to chocolate?! I’d LOVE to be indulged in such a treat! My boyfriend would tackle the dark chocolate while I would feast on the yummy milk chocolate – a win-win for both of us!

  169. Nathan January 13, 2012 at 6:11 pm #

  177. lance young January 13, 2012 at 10:25 pm #

  178. Chris January 14, 2012 at 3:02 am #

    I don’t get to get out much on the weekend because I’m always working, so it would be nice to take the night off and actually do something I would enjoy as my night out.

  179. Amber Villanueva January 14, 2012 at 8:33 am #

    My Boyfriend and I have date nights 2x a month… After 9 yrs, finding new and fun dates can be a little challenging. Winning tickets would give him that chance to try something different for a date night, without the excuse of whether it’s worth the money. Also hoping it will impress him to start doing more of these events.

  180. Shrnk2b January 14, 2012 at 9:31 am #

    You know the way to a girl’s heart…especially if it’s dark chocolate! ;)

  181. BJHaraughty January 14, 2012 at 9:40 am #

    Sounds delightful, sing us up! It’s my girlfriend’s birthday too so we’ll be there to enjoy the deliciousness.

  182. Chris C January 14, 2012 at 9:49 am #

    A chocolate festival?!? I’m beside myself.

  183. Wdzl January 14, 2012 at 10:11 am #

    If all else fails, eat chocolate! Everything else has failed, please pass the chocolate?!

  184. Sara January 14, 2012 at 10:21 am #

    I would love to attend the chocolate festival with my husband. 1) We love chocolate 2) We have never been to the convention center as we are new to town 3) We are trying to experience our new city on a limited/non-existent budget while waiting for my new job to start. Moonstruck Chocolate has been my all-time favorite company for the past 5 years and I am thrilled to be in its hometown finally.

  185. Nikki January 14, 2012 at 10:40 am #

    I’m a woman, therefore, Chocolate runs through my veins. Itd be a nice date weekend with my husband. Ive been unemployed for a year, so any time “out” is precious!

  186. Carly January 14, 2012 at 2:03 pm #

    I would love to win tickets. I am pregnant and can’t indulge in the martini side of things, but would love to indulge in the chocolate!

  187. Tracey January 14, 2012 at 3:06 pm #

  188. Katy McCarty January 14, 2012 at 3:09 pm #

    Why would I like to win?? I was in the hospital with all sorts of unfun stuff happening to me on my birthday in October. I spent 3 months on heavy medication and NOW I can live life again. What a wonderful late birthday evening I could have and brings friends to also. I hope I win but if I don’t just writing this made me see my need to live life to the fullest every day!! So thankyou from a grateful reader.
    Katy

  189. Kymbo January 14, 2012 at 5:14 pm #

    Wow! I’ve just moved to the US (from Switzerland!), and got married last month. I’m planning to bring my darling husband to the Chocolate Fest for an anniversary/birthday treat.

    I’ve been really missing the fondue this winter, but a Leonidas gift basket would be the perfect replacement!

  193. MattintheHat January 15, 2012 at 5:34 am #

    Sweeeeeeet! (Get it, sweet?)

  194. miss meg January 15, 2012 at 8:16 am #

  195. Ruby January 15, 2012 at 9:59 am #

    People say chocolate is a girls best friend…. especially in times of need. But chocolate and I are soul mates, destined to be together for life and beyond. Help a girl and her soul mate enjoy some quality time together.

    AND while doing so it supports a local non profit dedicated to teaching about forests, trees and environmental sustainability, what a FANTASTIC bonus!

  196. Mike January 15, 2012 at 10:43 am #

    This sounds quite tasty!
    Fun for my whole family would be great to let the kids try thier palets.
    Sweat things!

The gift basket would light her up. I love doing special things for her that she really appreciates because she is so sweet and thoughtful and does the nicest things for me. This would be an awesome surprise for her. She is always doing nice things for others and I would love to surprise her with tickets and the gift basket!

    Hello Awesome PDX Pipeline Contest Pickerl!! My best friend is turning 50 on Friday and due to the economy, I have no funds in the budget for a present that she so greatly deserves. A Chocolate festival would be the greatest way to celebrate and treat her to a “girls night out” complete with CHOCOLATE…….MMMMMM MUST HAVE CHOCOLATE :) Thank you for your consideration…..

  215. Stephanie Klein January 17, 2012 at 2:21 pm #

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! I am so excited I won and I am looking forward to going!

    Diamonds aren’t a girl’s best friend, chocolate is! All the varieties, textures, and tastes… it would be awesome to splurge and indulge in this legal activity of bliss.

    Thanks for the chance at this wonderful prize.

  221. Kim January 18, 2012 at 11:38 am #

    I am 70% chocolate and need to maintain a healthy ratio by attending. I have ruined many friends by introducing them to premium chocolate and would love to completely raise the bar for my boyfriend. He makes (quiet) baritone animal noises when he seriously enjoys food too.

  222. Linda January 18, 2012 at 11:51 am #

    I love to WIN the chocolate escape! It would be so much FUN and I get to get away to relax.

  229. Dan dan January 18, 2012 at 7:07 pm #

    I almost woo’ed you with the lyrics to Chocolate Rain by Tay Zonday to get the tickets, but then I remembered this is a family website.

  230. Monica Brown January 18, 2012 at 7:36 pm #

    I want to win the basket because my best friend has her birthday this weekend & she’s a chocoholic that deserves such an awesome gift!

  234. Hannah January 19, 2012 at 9:29 am #

    Probably a bit late to enter, but: I’m undergoing treatment for an extreme weight loss and this looks like a delicious way to put on the pounds. :)

  235. Teri January 19, 2012 at 10:16 am #

    Chocolate is a beautiful thing. My husband has recently been playing with chocolate and has been encouraged to look into this as a business. He is curious as to what is out there. He has been unemployed for a long while and this really looks like potential. Maybe it will be another chocolate fantasy!!! prefer Saturday.

  236. MacKenzie January 19, 2012 at 10:20 am #

    please pick me!

  237. Angel Anderson January 19, 2012 at 10:40 am #

    My husband and I are going on a close-to-home vacation all the way from Beaverton to a SE Portland bed & breakfast this whole weekend. :) This would be such a great way to spend our Friday date night out (pretending to be tourists) and give us something wonderful to munch on when we head back to our room.

  238. Amy January 19, 2012 at 12:35 pm #

    The last thing my beehind needs is chocolate, but my drooling mouth says, “yes, please!”

  239. Winnie Richards January 19, 2012 at 3:59 pm #

    Finally I have found something my husband will go to with me. It would be great to have free tickets for Saturday. I have talked him into going out for breakfast and to add the Chocolate Fest. for free would be wonderful. I love chocolate. I can do this my broken foot is almost well. I get to get out of the house. YEA.

  240. eric January 19, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    i would give my left ear to win tickets to this… well, maybe just a Mike Tyson bites worth, but just the same!

  241. Gayleen Williams January 19, 2012 at 4:28 pm #

    This year has started hard and strong, and it has been quite difficult at times, even testing. What better than a day of simple pleasures for me and my girl, the luxury of just indulging and treating ourselves, forgetting about our worries and quarrels and just trying good food and drinks, and the wonder of the convention center. Please help me get this year started right :)

    mmm, chocolate. We have been to this festival and exhibit before, and it is very cool

  248. Addie January 19, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

    Because I’m a poor graduate student and I can’t survive without chocolate!

    How do you win tix? I would absolutely love to go to this!

    Because the only cigarettes I ever smoked were chocolate, when I was 9. When I was 15 I melted chocolate for brownies, but decided instead to take the spatula and cover myself from head to foot with it, so that I was one with my ambrosia. For the next 35 years I have sporadically consumed huge gobs of this sweet dark manna, with a particular predilection for Belgian and Swiss varieties. So now that I’m 50, I need a new adventure with this guaranteed pleasure that never fails to deliver OM.

    Hello, I know that there are going to be a lot many responses to this but thought that I would give it a try and tell you why I would like the gift basket! I’m not trying to be selfish in the least, The person I would really want to bring to this is My fiance David! He goes to work every day (he only gets 4 days off a month) and busts his butt to provide for us. Honestly I just want to give him 1 night to say “thank you” and show him that I appreciate everything that he has done & continues to do for me every single day of my life! Thank you for reading! ~Crystal

    Because chocolate is my secret lover!

  259. Jeanine C. January 19, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    I would like to win because I have never been and I would love to sample the variety of chocolate local and abroad.

  260. Sara January 19, 2012 at 5:59 pm #

    I need this! This week the puppy died, grandma died, and our small business was burglarized. So far 2012 has not been kind. Chocolate may not fix things, but it sure would sweeten things up a bit. Besides, it would give me a reason to visit Portland again!

  261. Tina January 19, 2012 at 6:09 pm #

    Would love to get in on this if it’s not too late. Celebrating my friends birthday tomorrow and it would be the perfect way to start out the evening!

  262. Ryan January 19, 2012 at 6:32 pm #

    Definitely need to hit this up… free tickets or not I will be taking my wife… but with free tickets I would be much happier!

    Chocolate is my sweet addiction. Please HELP and addict out! ;-)

  264. michelle January 19, 2012 at 8:08 pm #

    I love chocolate AND this would be a fabulous date night!!) Pick me!!

  265. Matthew January 19, 2012 at 11:46 pm #

    I am not sure if you’re still giving these away but it would be great to win. I have been having a series of orthopedic issues. The last one being an extensive knee/acl repair, and before that it was a total hip replacement. So I haven’t really been able to get out & do fun things like this. With everything medically going on finances have been tight so now that i’m able to do these things I can’t yet. So getting to go would make my day. Thank you.

  267. mary January 20, 2012 at 6:22 am #

    WOW! there are more entries for the chocolate fest than any other I have ever seen here at pdx pipeline. What are the odds I will finally win tix???? I figger the odds be 50-50 but am hoping for better than that. Mommas got a sweet tooth honey, give it up!

  268. Tricia January 20, 2012 at 7:54 am #

    Yum! I have an addiction to chocolate right now! Since it is cold, hot chocolate has been favorite fix!

  269. Frank W. January 20, 2012 at 9:02 am #

    How can I say ‘no’ to Theobromine (food of the gods)? I grew up on really good German and Swiss chocolate and the taste for high quality chocolate has not diminished since then. A basket full of chocolate would be a dream.

  270. kim January 20, 2012 at 9:12 am #

    I want to win because I always comment on this and never win!

  271. Jacob January 20, 2012 at 9:35 am #
