    This sounds like a great deal with getting the passes. There’s so much I’d love to see. I’d love to get some culture on. Pockets pretty empty like most folk but keeping my fingers crossed. I feel lucky, hope the planets are still aligned in my favor

    This sounds super fun! I’d love to take my fiance as a surprise.

    If I won Fertile Ground tickets I would jump into the air with Wright Brother’s joy. I would embrace my airlift as my body loses the ground and gains the sky.

      I want to see all the creative people doing stuff I probably couldn’t even have done when I was young and limber enough to consider it.

    I think this is an awesome event and I would love to go, but my bank account and I have a bit of a love/hate relationship, so winning tickets would be great!

    Hand to Mouth is my favorite theater company in town. I have no doubt this show will be incredible.

    When I first moved to Portland I wanted to go to Fertile Ground. Haven’t been yet and still want to!

  16. KayVee January 17, 2014 at 9:18 am #

    When I first moved here I wanted to go really badly. I still haven’t been to Fertile Ground after living here for a few years.

    I heard about this a few weeks ago and thought it sounded nifty. Then I find it here, on PDX Pipeline and think, I COULD WIN THOSE. So, here I am, trying to win them so hopefully go to some snazzy events.

    This event sounds spectacular. I am new to Portland and having been falling in love. PDXpipeline has been a fantastic source to learn about where to go and what to do!
