    Well I should win because I have been on a diet forever and cheese and wine are my favotite foods and I have beeen deprived for so long. Really though would love a night out!!

  2. Michelle April 11, 2012 at 2:20 pm #

    I would like to go because as a Portland native I’ve been a little snobbish about how awesome Oregon – I’d really like to see what WA has got so I can be more worldly and more neighborly.

  3. Hope April 11, 2012 at 2:20 pm #

    This would be a delicious treat for my 31st birthday which is on 4/30/2012. I would truly enjoy this amazing food/wine pairing!

  4. Michelle Warnke April 11, 2012 at 2:20 pm #

    I would love to win this! This sounds like the perfect way to spend a Monday evening, drinking fancy wine and eating tasty treats! Crossing my fingers!

  5. Michael Israel April 11, 2012 at 2:23 pm #

    i need to impress my girlfriend and she cares more about wine then bulging muscles!

  6. Kristen April 11, 2012 at 2:32 pm #

    It’d be a welcome change from whining over being broke to enjoying wine for free!

  7. Dron April 11, 2012 at 2:33 pm #

    Excited about trying the food and learning about washington wine. please pick me

  8. Topher April 11, 2012 at 2:45 pm #

    This sounds amazing. I would love tickets. My BF just turned 21 and I would love to be able to take him to the event and show him what he’s been missing!

  9. Sarah April 11, 2012 at 3:04 pm #

    I love food and wine. And it’s as simple as that.

  10. Lindsey April 11, 2012 at 3:11 pm #

    I just completed three years of night school to earn my masters and could use some relaxation time with wine in hand. I’m also interested in learning more about the local wine selections to impress my family and friends at future dinner parties. Finishing school doesn’t mean I’m ready to stop learning :)

  11. rebecca April 11, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

    i love food AND wine, and am unemployed so I can’t afford to pay for tickets and finally give a friend a night out on me for a change

  12. Julie Cruz April 11, 2012 at 3:55 pm #

    I would love to attend this event. My boyfriend is a wine salesman and I would love to surprise him with tickets. I’m always trying to learn more about this industry and he would be very impressed if I could take him there.

  13. Sarah April 11, 2012 at 4:11 pm #

    I haven’t been wine tasting in OR yet. I’d love to!

  14. Toby April 11, 2012 at 4:35 pm #

    I need to learn about the local wines and figure out which ones I REALLY like….and I need to take my wife out for something fun & free.

  15. Lara April 11, 2012 at 5:14 pm #

    Sounds like a good opportunity for me to mispronounce merlot “murlott” and embarrass by boyfriend

  16. kaylan April 11, 2012 at 6:00 pm #

    This sounds like it would be a great way to try some new wines, and find something refreshing and delightful on

  17. Leonard April 11, 2012 at 6:32 pm #

    Love to taste WA!

  18. Alethea April 11, 2012 at 7:59 pm #

    I just moved to Portland and have been seeking out Northwest wines. However, without a car, it’s difficult to do the wine country tours. This would be a great way to sample as many as possible and all I’d have to do is get on a bus!

  19. Chad Houchin April 11, 2012 at 9:51 pm #

    Sounds awesome!

  20. Aimee M April 12, 2012 at 9:36 am #

  21. Kelsey April 12, 2012 at 1:56 pm #

    yes please!

  22. Kacy April 12, 2012 at 2:13 pm #

    This sounds like an amazing way to discover some new local wines and scrumptious food to pair with!!! However I cant afford tix at the moment. So, yeah, help a lady out? :-)

  23. Joe M. April 12, 2012 at 2:22 pm #

    I have never been to Taste – would like to mingle amongst the cool folk!

  24. Emily April 12, 2012 at 3:14 pm #

    I have had such a bad week, the worst I have had in a long while and wine sounds very therapeutic.

  25. Kimberly April 12, 2012 at 4:46 pm #

    This sounds like an awesome event!! I’d love to win tickets!

  26. Robert April 12, 2012 at 4:50 pm #

    I would really love to taste some Washington wines!!

  27. Kaitlin April 12, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

  28. Carolyn Wiesner April 12, 2012 at 4:54 pm #

    Would love to get more acquainted with WA wines!

  29. Anthony April 12, 2012 at 5:30 pm #

    I love the Washington wines I’ve had, but have wanted to explore more of them without throwing down insane amounts of $ on potentially not-all-that-good bottles. This would be the perfect way to avoid that!

  30. Jax April 12, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

    Would love to find out what Washington tastes like…chicken?

  31. Heather April 12, 2012 at 5:50 pm #

    Blah blah blah! Would you like some cheese with that wine? Why yes…yes I sure would! And pour me some wine while your at it! =)

  32. Ben April 12, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    Sounds awesome would love to go.

  33. Cynthia April 12, 2012 at 6:54 pm #

    Oooh how I would love to go to this lovely lineup of OR and WA… sounds fantastic and I’d be so excited if I won tickets!

  34. Aric April 12, 2012 at 8:31 pm #

    I need to venture out more in wines.

  35. steve parker April 12, 2012 at 9:16 pm #

    I really like fermented grape juice.

  36. Scott April 12, 2012 at 9:36 pm #

    I eat food AND drink wine

  37. April April 12, 2012 at 9:43 pm #

    Sounds awesome.

  38. Robin April 12, 2012 at 11:09 pm #

    Wow… what a treat! Would love to go! : )

  39. patti April 13, 2012 at 12:10 am #

    this sounds so amazing! i love a good malbec, would love to learn more about wine

  40. Hilary A April 13, 2012 at 3:30 am #

    Taste Washington @Pure Space is the perfect way to take the Manic out of Monday, April 23rd; and it gives me a headstart fighting Father Time with 75 plus ways to imbibe a good share of antioxidants and Fountain of Youth resveratrol in preparation for my 51st birthday on Thursday, April 26th. I’m only 49 years away from getting a Smucker’s spot on the Today Show. I need to drink to that in a very big way.

  41. Izzy April 13, 2012 at 5:26 am #

    I would like to attend because this sounds fun!

  42. Nick April 13, 2012 at 7:39 am #

    I’ve been wanting to taste Washington for years now.

  43. Kathy April 13, 2012 at 8:45 am #

    Wine and cheese – two of my most favorite things!
    Would love, love, love to go!!!

  44. Andrew April 13, 2012 at 8:53 am #

    So much more variety in Washington wines! Would really enjoy going and drinking something not Pinot Noir.

  45. Lisa April 13, 2012 at 9:16 am #

    I was pregnant for 9 months and could really go for the forbidden items (wine + cheese) now!

  46. Derrick April 13, 2012 at 10:10 am #

    I would like to win because it’s just so hard to escape the doldrums of every day life. Just ask this French cat:

  47. wallace April 13, 2012 at 10:14 am #

    tasting Washington while in Oregon is a surreal event that leaves me struck with flavor in my heart

  48. Allison F. April 13, 2012 at 10:36 am #

    I should win because, let’s face it, Oregon wines are far superior to Washington wines, and I simply must attend this event to prove it to my taste buds and attendees!

  49. Chere nicholas April 13, 2012 at 11:02 am #

    My husband and I have been wanting to go wine tasting for a loooong time now, but could never afford to. PLEEEAAAASSSEE pick us as winners!! We would be sooo grateful for the fantastic date night!!

  50. Anna April 13, 2012 at 1:33 pm #

    I work at a wine bar in Southern Oregon called Corks- would love to find some new labels for the shop but the ticket is a bit on the spendy side… c’mon PDX Pipeline and help me out

  51. daVe April 13, 2012 at 5:32 pm #

    “all food and drink is included in the ticket price”: don’t worry, pdxpipeline, i’ll sign a waiver releasing you from all that this could bring.

  52. Julie April 14, 2012 at 1:54 pm #

    I would love a good and valid reason to skip the gym and yoga on Monday the 23rd!! Good and valid reason = Wine and Cheese!!!

  53. Tara April 15, 2012 at 5:14 pm #

    I am a Washington native, and as much as I love Portland and Oregon, I would be so happy to have a taste of my home state.

  54. Jennifer April 16, 2012 at 8:50 am #

    I would love to win tickets to The Taste of Washington. I just quit my insanely toxic job and the best way to recover is with a big, smack you in the face, bold red from Washington. I was recently in Walla Walla for wine tasting and some of the wineries there were talking about this event.
    Please, I’d really love to win tickets and I’d be really appreciative!

  55. Tristina April 16, 2012 at 9:40 am #

    Please feed my addiction!

  56. Kevin Larkin April 16, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

    It would be great win the wine tour. It’s the perfect time out and we have a designated driver that just turned legal to drive. so a special getaway. One day I will win something from you

  57. Food_Wine_Guy April 16, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

    I should win because if you choose me, I will invite anyone of the single ladies from above to join me! #Bonus

  58. Brian April 16, 2012 at 12:56 pm #

    I would love to attend this event because as a sustainable development graduate, my passion for local food, wine and crafts are something that I believe help to preserve cultural identity and empower local people. It seems this event does a wonderful job of showcasing people, planet, and plenitude.

  59. Soco April 16, 2012 at 12:58 pm #

    I would LOVE to win this……I am planning a trip to Walla Walla this summer and would love to get an idea of some great wineries to visit. Thank you for considering me.
    ps….another great reason is that I LOVE WINE!!!!

  60. Elizabeth April 16, 2012 at 12:59 pm #

    Would absolutely love to ” Taste” Washington!

  61. sova April 16, 2012 at 1:01 pm #

    I’d love to win some tickets and get more education in various wines.

  62. Hopeful Winner April 16, 2012 at 1:05 pm #

    I love drinking wine and learning about Washington wines!

  63. Melissa April 16, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

    PDX Pipeline picked a peppy person,
    A peppy person PDX Pipeline picked;

    Who’s the peppy person PDX Pipeline picked?

  64. Nicole April 16, 2012 at 1:43 pm #

    My husband and I have been apart for 3 weeks due to work related travel and we would love a date night! Also, SuLei Cellars is going to be there and I want to tell them how much we love their wine and buy some more!

  65. Lisa April 16, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    I just moved here six weeks ago, and I’m looking for fun and cool things, like this, to do! I have I mentioned I love food and wine?? =)

  66. Pattie April 16, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

    I’d like to win because I just found out that I won’t be getting my meager tax refund for a little while thanks to identity theft. Yup… I’m a little cash poor at the moment and I sure could use a drink.

  67. George April 16, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

    I would love the opportunity to take my incredible wife of 17 years to an event we could otherwise not afford. She is raising two boys and going to school full time at night and saturdays to better our lives. I may not deserve it but she certainly does!

  68. jason April 16, 2012 at 3:01 pm #

    My girlfriend and I would love to sample some of that area’s best foods and wines.

  69. Frank Ciavarello April 16, 2012 at 3:43 pm #

    Last minute, yes I will admit. But I just found out! This is first minute for me. I really hope I can get the tickets still, I’ve only ever been outside the chain link fence for the great events in the square. Minus the zombie parade, I was right up in the throws of that.

  70. James April 17, 2012 at 6:05 pm #

    Love wine. Thanks.
