    As a young professional, wine enthusiast, philanthropist, and self-proclaimed foodie Corks + Forks is made for me (and named for me, as I have a “cute” habit of getting the cork stuck in the wine bottle for which my patient partner has to jimmy it out with a fork). I’d love attend Corks + Forks on June 6th so I can support the community, treat my food and wine loving partner to a nibble and sip (and leave all bottle opening to the professionals).

  9. Gregory Garabedian May 15, 2018 at 12:27 pm #

    I would love the chance to explore more Oregon wines (I’m new to the area) , while also supporting some really great non profits. It’d be nice to treat the wife to an event like this and take our parent hats off for a few hours.

  10. Sam May 15, 2018 at 12:30 pm #

    This is an epic event! I would love to attend this with my hubby to celebrate our 12th anniversary! !!!

  12. Rusty T May 15, 2018 at 12:46 pm #

    I love wine. I love food. I love combining them at events like this! (and learning about both from people who know way more than I do!)

  13. Cheyenne Terbrueggen May 15, 2018 at 12:52 pm #

    Corks + Forks + ME (fingers crossed). I’d flip, literally do a flip, to attend this event. Cheers!

  14. Katie Collins May 15, 2018 at 1:09 pm #

    Why I would want to attend? As a fairly recent convert to all things Oregonian – and please, it didn’t take much persuasion – I am particularly entranced with Oregon wines. I am learning more and more, and would love to be in the company with other devotees while supporting fellow non-profits and celebrating our good fortune with my spouse. Oh yeah, and the food – what a perfect evening!

  15. Keena May 15, 2018 at 1:13 pm #

    Yep for me

  16. Janie F May 15, 2018 at 1:39 pm #

    Supporting Oregon wines and local fare is #1! I cant think of a better way to spend my time.

  17. Cassi Bell May 15, 2018 at 1:51 pm #

    This is right up my alley! We are thinking of oepning a winery here in Portland, this wouldbe a greta experience!

  18. Scott May 15, 2018 at 2:59 pm #

    I always walk around with an emergency hunk of cheese in my pocket, so this event would be right up my alley

  19. Sherry May 15, 2018 at 3:46 pm #

    YES PLEASE! <3

  20. nicole May 15, 2018 at 4:02 pm #

    I want to cut the cheese and cut a rug at this events!

  21. Josh May 15, 2018 at 4:13 pm #

    I would love to surprise my wife with tickets to this event!

  22. dana May 15, 2018 at 4:47 pm #

    great event, in for the food and wines !

  23. dana May 15, 2018 at 4:49 pm #

    great event, love to go ! wine and food yay.

  24. Monica May 15, 2018 at 9:16 pm #

    I want you to “castaway” any doubt, put a cork in all the other possible winners and believe me when I say I am for(k) sure the right gal to choose for this event! I heard GREAT things about Corks + Forks last year, and I would love to attend this year courtesy of PDX Pipeline!

  25. Rachel May 15, 2018 at 11:36 pm #

    Delicious Oregon food is a close second but there’s not much that I love more then wine… Though there’s nothing like the rush of giving back to the community. Corks and forks is the perfect marriage of all of the above – local food, wine, and fabulous non profit partners (particularly, in this year of the woman, the YWCA). Attending courtesy of PDX pipeline would be an honor as I could spend at the event in benefit of the non profit partners and maybe find a wine or two to serve at my upcoming wedding – as I suppose in my list of things I love I should have included my fiancé, who I guess I would bring along for the evening ;)

  26. Kristi May 16, 2018 at 6:47 am #

    Three of my favorite things, food, NW wine and charity. We purchase tickets to a number of events like this each year, but I haven’t heard of this one. I’d love to check it out, so we can then add it to our must buy list for next year.

  27. Matthew Whildin May 16, 2018 at 7:15 am #

    There are fewer things I love more than Oregon chef’s, wineries and DJ Shortchange. I would love to attend what is sure to be a fun opportunity to experience some amazing local food, wine, and like-minded folks.

  28. Danielle May 16, 2018 at 10:35 am #

    What an awesome event

  29. Carly May 16, 2018 at 1:13 pm #

    Since I moved to Portland I haven’t had the opportunity to visit many of the wineries. I would love the opportunity to learn more about Portland’s vibrant wine culture, while supporting some of amazing local charities! I’d also love to take my European boyfriend with me and show him how amazing Oregon wine can be.

  30. Natasha Popenuk May 16, 2018 at 2:54 pm #

    Sounds super fun!

  31. Ryan May 16, 2018 at 11:23 pm #

    Cool, I’ll go

  32. Brianna May 17, 2018 at 8:10 am #

    This sounds like such a fun way to give back to the community! What could be better than local food, wine and charity. Maybe just adding in dj shortchange! There ya go, best event around. Would love love Love to spend the evening wine tasting.

  33. Oliver May 17, 2018 at 9:51 am #

    I don’t need another riesling to enjoy wine, but I would love to support such grape causes. If you don’t pick me that’s oaky, I won’t be bitter. I’m no brut.

  69. Will May 23, 2018 at 11:39 am #

    I’m an alcohol enthusiast who’s recently started branching into wines. I’m trying to learn more about tasting and appreciating fine wine. I’d take my winery-club wine-fanatic friend to repay him for teaching me to be more sophisticated

  70. Renee May 23, 2018 at 1:05 pm #

    This would be so much fun!

  71. Courtney May 23, 2018 at 7:15 pm #

  74. Arturo Calilung May 24, 2018 at 10:54 am #

    It is said that there’s no greater joy than to eat, drink, and be merry so I can think of no place better to be than at the Corks and Forks event!

    Count upon me to honor both Bacchus and Epicurus in both great and equivalent measures!

  75. Melody R Frye May 24, 2018 at 2:17 pm #

    This sounds super fun. Wine, food, and friends! You can never go wrong with that.

    My entry isn’t for a relative coming to town or a friend we owe etc. it’s for my faux husband and me. We know wine and we buy wine and we are in need of a happy event like this to go to Just the Two of Us!

  78. Lynnette Jackson May 24, 2018 at 3:34 pm #

    I picked up a flyer to this event from a first-time vendor. Although I’ve determined the cost is beyond my affordability, I have been promoting this fun-tastic opportunity to colleagues and friends.
