  43. Emily June 23, 2016 at 4:15 pm #

    Working in social work and with adults in mental health crisis, I don’t exactly make the big bucks to go to schnazzy events like this one! It would be so nice to have a 4th of July blow out, courtesy of PDX Pipeline :) I need a little break this summer and this sounds like an amazing event that I would love to be a part of!

  54. Hilary P June 23, 2016 at 7:29 pm #

    It’s time for me to have a Three Degrees and 3D experience of Portland on the Fourth of July. Usually hiding at home with the shades drawn watching the fireworks on TV while my neighbors are shooting off M-80s,,,just like I hide from sugar crazed trick or treaters on Halloween. Help reform this Holiday Hermit. I need to come out of my shell, explode with merriment, greasy meats and unbridled mindless patriotism. I’m kind of a blast once my fuse is lit.

  55. Brian T Baker June 23, 2016 at 8:10 pm #

    I could never afford something like this – sounds like an amazing way to spend the holiday.

  56. catie June 23, 2016 at 8:47 pm #

  59. Sarah R June 23, 2016 at 9:07 pm #

    No better place to be than PDX on 4th of July. No better show than fireworks on the waterfront. This is a special event and I would be honored to Go to this event. I can’t afford it otherwise. Sounds like an amazing event to remember forever.

  60. Carol U June 23, 2016 at 9:18 pm #

  81. Dolores June 24, 2016 at 3:04 pm #

    The extravaganza at Three Degrees is such a great community event. This opportunity is to win a pair of tickets is special. As someone who was raised here in Portland starting seventy-nine years ago…attending would be extraordinary!. I would be so delighted if I could join the celebration.

  82. Micheal V. June 24, 2016 at 4:22 pm #

    I am disabled and have struggled for years with several issues, including what the medical wizards have labeled “Major Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia.” In simple terms, it means you freak out about a lot of things and you usually have an extremely difficult time leaving your home or being in places you feel are over occupied or difficult to escape. At one point, didn’t leave my home for about six months.

    Physically speaking, only months ago, I could not complete a full day out of a wheelchair due to a series of other non-diagnosed concerns. I didn’t get the mail, shopped only in the middle of the night, and would occasionally take a brief walk around our Portland neighborhood at the early, early hours of the morning to avoid others. I must confess how embarrassing this is, especially as an adult male, and I’ve never publically told anyone about this disability until now.

    God graciously brought my sweetheart, Suzie (that’s what I call her) into my life just over four years ago. Shortly after dating, my health took a severe turn for the worse and I was basically bed ridden for more than four months. It was Suzy who stayed by my side each and every day, cooking, cleaning, paying the bills, shopping, and basically loving a person who really wasn’t adding a lot of value to her life at the time.

    Suzie continued to lovingly and carefully pursue me, patiently working with me through my litany of health concerns and the issues which we all have to face in past disappointments which life always seems to eventually serve to us all equally.

    To say I was hesitant to allow Suzie’s love to break through my damaged heart would be an understatement. Just one year before meeting me, my Suzie lost her mother and the matriarch of her family to breast cancer. Then only six months later, her favorite brother died unexpectedly in his bedroom. I feared greatly that if I relented and loved Suzie back in the way she loved me, I would one day be looking down on her tears at another loved one who was taken from her life prematurely.

    But Suzie didn’t give up.

    She didn’t give in.

    She didn’t relent.

    She continued to methodically love me setting up doctor’s appointments, placing me on dietary supplement regimens, and making sure each day I took a baby step forward in my progression in what we both will ultimately be full health, in mind, body, and spirit.

    Today, just over four years later, I haven’t been in my wheelchair for months. Suzy does the driving, but I can say with her by my side, I have been able to navigate around in public once again, and have even enjoyed some fun events out, just like a person without any disabilities.

    And I’ve been accepted into graduate school! I can go, because Suzie promises she will be by my side each day of class until I feel like I could attend on my own, should I ever choose to attend alone.

    Just a few months ago, I asked Suzie to marry me. I proposed to her on top of a mountaintop at a camp I attended as a child. This was the most magical and meaningful place I could think of. After all, this camp had changed my life, and I hoped once again it would have the same outcome.

    She said, “Yes.” Suzie said yes! She said the word which made my heart once again begin to breathe.

    I gathered up all the money I could to purchase her the most beautiful wedding ring I could afford. She certainly deserves much more, but was so kind and gracious in her acceptance of this pauper’s token of love which I placed on her finger.

    Sorry for the long comment, but here’s why I wrote. The wedding is coming up soon, just after this event and then we have to immediately pack up and move out of state for graduate school. We will both miss our beautiful Portland, but I believe this is something I must do to try to create a life for my dear, sweet, Suzie that she deserves, especially after everything she has done for me.

    While we wanted to have the dream wedding of the royals, we’ve had to really, really scale things down to her Dad’s backyard. It will be super classy—all our family and friends are coming and I know we’ll have a great time eating, dancing, laughing, and sharing our newfound hopes for the future.

    Traditionally, I know the groom is supposed to offer the bride an engagement present and sometimes a gift at the rehearsal dinner. Well, I haven’t done that yet, and with the move imminent, these gifts are going to be tough.

    I was online and saw these tickets were being given away and thought this might be a nice gift for my bride to say thank you to her and let her know I wish I had more to offer her, as she has given up so much for me.

    I could also tell you about a lot of rough times we’ve been through recently, like our home was broken into and robbed by drug addicts for more than the fourth full time and we lost everything basically accrued over our lifetime. However, I don’t want to focus on the negatives. Rather, I choose to, and I hope you will, focus on the gift I have been given . . . a princess for a lifetime to an undeserving frog. Hopefully, one day her love will help me transform into the prince I hope to become for our future together.

    And while there are many more deserving people of these tickets than myself, you will find no one else more deserving than my lovely Suzie.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  83. Ren June 24, 2016 at 5:51 pm #

    Me! I want to win those tickets! I always end up seeing the fireworks last minute in a giant crowd of people holding cell phones.

  84. Trev & Annie June 24, 2016 at 7:49 pm #

  86. Josh June 24, 2016 at 11:31 pm #

    My girlfriend and I just moved to the area and we are looking for any 4th of July activities PDX has to offer. This looks like an amazing event and we would love to be there.

  87. Alex June 24, 2016 at 11:59 pm #

    My girlfriend and I just moved here from Utah and we are dying for yet another reason to rub it in the faces of our friends and family back home that Portland beats SLC any day. Looking for more traditions start our new lives and what better than fireworks and BBQ?

  88. ron waggoner June 25, 2016 at 1:19 am #

    My wife is from China and has never seen a 4th of July event. I would love to bring her to your establishment for some good food and drink and enjoy the fireworks in comfort and style.

  89. Jeanette Diaz June 25, 2016 at 9:33 am #

    My boyfriend and I love BBQ. He is from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and a true lover of BBQ. We just moved to Portland and have a really hard time finding any place that we like. I would really like to treat him out, since I don’t make enough money to do many nice things for him. It’s would be lovely to spend our 4th of July at Portland’s Waterfront at a high-end BBQ place. Seeing him smile and enjoy himself is one of the happiest things in my life.

  90. Luke June 25, 2016 at 12:27 pm #

    Sounds fun!

  91. Joi Grabowski June 25, 2016 at 12:49 pm #

    Never have been to the restaurant or spent the 4th in Portland. This would be a great way to spend the 4th with a friend of mine, who is a workaholic. I know he would love this for his day off.

  92. Alexander Frane June 25, 2016 at 5:20 pm #

    I’d love to win tickets for my friend’s wedding present! Plus he just survived the MCATs, and is broke and tired from it.

  93. Bryan Holt June 25, 2016 at 6:48 pm #

    It’s my first 4th of July in the city if Portland and it would be amazing to have this opportunity to set it off right. Please, oh please pick me!

  94. Tim June 26, 2016 at 10:10 am #

    I like BBQ and my wife likes fireworks!
    Fingers crossed!

    • Trish June 30, 2016 at 10:40 pm #

  99. Curtis J FLOOD June 27, 2016 at 8:33 am #

    This will be my first 4th of July celebration I’ve attended since 2008. It’s only been recently that I’ve tried to get more exposure to fireworks shows in an effort to change my mindset and memories related to experiences overseas. This kind of event would be an incredible experience to transform the negativity!

  100. Nicole June 27, 2016 at 9:24 am #

    I could really use something to look forward to this weekend.

  101. Nicole Chase June 27, 2016 at 9:24 am #

    I love Three Degrees (ate there before I graduated from Portland State) and being my dad will be in town this weekend, I hope we are both able to attend this event. Good luck to everyone!

  108. Natalie J Vandenberghe June 27, 2016 at 1:12 pm #

    My husband and mother-in-law are proud U.S. Marine Corps veterans and would love the opportunity to celebrate our nation’s independence at the Three Degrees 4th of July BBQ & Fireworks event! They will be competing in the Foot Traffic Flat half marathon and 5K race that morning and would definitely appreciate the delicious BBQ buffet to refuel for the night’s festivities. My husband was born in Tennessee, we all live in Texas, and this is our first time visiting Portland, so we’d love to see what Portland BBQ is all about! Semper Fi!

  111. Mendy June 27, 2016 at 3:18 pm #

    I love BBQ and there’s no way I’d ever be able to afford this! I’d probably feel very out of place even if I won but it sound delicious!

  112. Erin June 27, 2016 at 4:09 pm #

    I love the 4th of July because that means FOOOOOOOD!!! I love me some delicious, smoky BBQ anything! Would LOVE to sit back with some good food, with some good company and watch fireworks in a beautiful city! What a way to celebrate our freedom!

  113. Zach June 27, 2016 at 4:13 pm #

    Really psyched for this; Can’t wait to go 5th degree black belt all over The Third Degree on the 4th! ;)

  114. Debra June 27, 2016 at 4:29 pm #

    Can’t wait to be 3° F on our 240th Independence Day @ The 3rd Degree!!!

  115. Kate K June 27, 2016 at 5:40 pm #

  124. Yankee Doodle Sweetheart June 28, 2016 at 11:38 am #

    These days, the 4th of July is celebrated with parades, barbecues, and fireworks. In 1776, it was the day that The Continental Congress voted to adopt The Declaration of Independence. Ask all the young people around you if they know what we’re truly celebrating. Then take it upon yourselves to inform them. Maybe even encourage them to learn by heart Thomas Jefferson’s powerful testament to Freedom. And explain that “unalienable rights” means they cannot be taken away. Ever. By anyone!
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness”

  125. Kaylene June 28, 2016 at 12:39 pm #

    Fourth of July is so fun!! This sounds like the best Fourth of July!

  126. Laura June 28, 2016 at 12:40 pm #

Have always wanted to see the big spectacular while eating some great American food! Would love this opportunity – thanks PDX Pipeline!

    We used to live a stone’s throw from Three Degrees/RiverPlace and we’d love an opportunity to come back down and see the fireworks while in such a top-notch atmosphere/environment. Three Degrees’ patio is one of the prime spots on the Portland waterfront – everyone posting here should visit regardless of whether or not they win these tickets. Happy 4th to everyone! Have a safe and satisfactory holiday!

  158. Jenn~ June 28, 2016 at 4:06 pm #

    This would be super special given it is our anniversary. Since we can’t afford to go out to a fancy place, we sure hope to be lucky and win this pair of tix. The menu looks amazing! Having a nice view of the fireworks would be ever so romantic.

  180. John June 29, 2016 at 6:18 pm #

    My wife and I are visiting Portland for the first time, no plans for the 4th yet, we’d love to go, HUGE fans of BBQ as well.

    I am not a vegan and will actually enjoy all the delicious meat options, I’m a native Oregonian and I have no exciting plans for Fourth of July so this would make my day!

  196. Jeremiah McBride June 30, 2016 at 1:46 pm #

    I met my girlfriend on 4th of July in 2008, 1 month after my first deployment. We have not spent a 4th together in 5 years. It would be a very memorable way to spend this year’s 4th in which we are going to be together.

  197. Isabella June 30, 2016 at 2:36 pm #

    I’m a meatatarian backpacking in the States and would love to top off the experience with a real American BBQ. Canadian born and raised and missing Canada Day in favour of the Fourth of July weekend. Would love to be part of this!

  221. Ben June 30, 2016 at 8:57 pm #

    The location of this establishment is amazing. It is one of the best places to go to watch the Christmas ships in December. It would be lovely to see a river event like this in the summer.

    Never been to Three Degrees, looks classy and elegant from outside, and I want to experience how it is inside with someone special on a special day. :)

    Well, I’m not going to sugarcoat it, my girlfriend and I moved here just over a year ago and it’s been hard since the get go. We moved down from Vancouver bc, growing up on big island, Hawaii and California before that. We and our puppy koa started in a run down motel but through hard work have since worked our way up to an apartment and a car. Through the process I’ve realized nowhere has had more of a sense of community than Portland. We wouldn’t be where we are without the generosity and hand helping neighborly feel of this town. Despite the size of any town I’ve never known more of a community feel before living here.
    This will be our first Fourth of July celebrating where after months of blood sweat and tears we’ll actually know where next month’s rent is coming from. I just think the perfect sound off as a welcoming to the town would be to enjoy this event for the Fourth of July we wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford.
    Love you guys and thanks for all the hospitality
