  7. Steven May 15, 2014 at 2:02 pm #

    How amazing would it be to experience something like this on such an incredible level. This would be an added bonus as we are heading from Klamath Falls to Portland that weekend.

  8. Max May 15, 2014 at 2:53 pm #

    Sadly just got dumped, so i’m looking for any excuse to take a new girl out on a date. This definitely qualifies.

  15. Julie H May 15, 2014 at 3:25 pm #

    One of my favorite places in Portland. Is that Old Town Pizza in the photo? It would be fun to see the inside of the buildings that I have only seen the outside of. Plus sampling local beers is always a bonus.

  16. Penny Ardissone May 15, 2014 at 3:26 pm #

    Sounds like a lot of fun!

  17. michelle warnke May 15, 2014 at 3:28 pm #

  18. erica May 15, 2014 at 3:28 pm #

  19. Grant May 15, 2014 at 3:43 pm #

    would love to scare my visiting friend, and not just from our hipsters! and a little booze never hurt a thing :)

  20. Jamie May 15, 2014 at 3:55 pm #

    This will sadly be my last weekend in Portland, I am moving to Indiana (against ,my will!!) and I will have a friend in town for a last great weekend. This event would be a perfect way to say goodbye to Portland : (

  21. Linda May 15, 2014 at 4:06 pm #

    I have done a haunted tour in Oregon City but there was no beer this should be fun

  22. James May 15, 2014 at 4:09 pm #

    I want to win because I need to overcome my fear of ghosts!

  23. Danielle V May 15, 2014 at 4:23 pm #

  24. Yvette May 15, 2014 at 4:26 pm #

  28. Megan May 15, 2014 at 6:48 pm #

    This sounds so awesome…. My fiance would love to go. Been trying for weeks :)

  29. Sheila Preece May 15, 2014 at 8:23 pm #

    Well, besides the usual reasons that everyone else already said….such as “sounds awesome”, “beer & ghosts? Great!!”, ..always wanted to go!”, …it’s my friends last weekend here in Portland!”, or ” count me in for booze & boos!”….. I would like to just add this straight foreword, not so glamorous reason from me:
    ” I’m married , I have two children, I work full -time and just finished my last term taking classes online with Rasmussen College. I work at a very busy early childhood education center with children ages infants-12 years old. I love my job but between at home always hosting my daughters friends after school and overnights on weekends, and my job where I work with children all day, everyday….. I could really use some reason to get out for some ADULT time!
    -No kids-just adults! No Disney-just drinks!, and No explaining to kids that a ghost isn’t hiding under their beds- just me and my drink searching for ghosts in a tunnel!!! That’s what happiness would be like for me!:)

  30. Sandra Dvergsdal May 15, 2014 at 10:48 pm #

    I’ve always wanted to see the Shanghai Tunnels… and beer makes it better. I so believe Old Town is haunted…

  96. Deana May 22, 2014 at 7:34 pm #

  97. Nicole May 22, 2014 at 7:46 pm #

As transplants we are looking for any excuse to get out and discover all that Little Beirut has to offer! ! !

  110. Jake Bethel May 23, 2014 at 10:59 am #

    Well hi there! I’d like to win tickets to the haunted pub crawl because beer wronged me long ago so I have set out to avenge myself by slowly dissipating as much of its supply that I can. It will never see me coming to the haunted crawl where I can finally make my final sneak attack. Muahahaha

  111. Angela May 23, 2014 at 11:20 am #

    Brews and haunts? Yes please! Pick me!

  112. Kimberly May 23, 2014 at 12:01 pm #

    This sounds like a blast… ghost stories and beer = entertainment.

  113. Angela Smith May 23, 2014 at 1:13 pm #

    I just moved out here from Utah. Still looking for work, my fiance and I have no money to buy entertainment. We just spent the last 2 1/2 years tied to a small town (in Utah) to get me through an accelerated nursing program. This is the first time I’ve been out of the state of Utah since December 2011- only thing I’ve had time (or money for) is job searching. I am looking forward to immersing myself into the Portland culture. Would love this to be the first experience I have here. I LOVE beer! I would like an opportunity to socialize with other people. This place is awesome and I haven’t even had a chance to really experience much yet…….yet.

  114. Sophie May 23, 2014 at 1:26 pm #

    Sounds like a great night out!

  115. Liz May 23, 2014 at 1:41 pm #

    Am thinking of driving up to portland this weekend and a haunted pub crawl sounds fun.

  116. kenneth May 23, 2014 at 6:17 pm #

    I have had a fascination with ghosts and have always wanted to go on a ghost tour! Add a beer to that and I’m all in!

  117. Sarah May 24, 2014 at 1:52 pm #

    Sounds unusual and really fun! I want to go on a beer friendly ghost tour!

  118. Kristina May 24, 2014 at 2:09 pm #

    Yes Pleeeeezze! This sounds hauntingly fun!!

  119. Steve May 24, 2014 at 6:31 pm #

    I want to win because this sounds like a blast!
