  49. David Brooks January 7, 2020 at 12:54 pm #

    Since Portland and, especially, the Portland Spirit is synonymous with great Q, I’d love to experience this myself, with my rib lovin’ better half. Friday night date night -for a change. Yes, sailing the gorgeous Willamette River under cover of night and, hopefully, stars would be just what the doctor ordered. Doctor Barbecued Chicken and Grits that is. Hoping for grits. Will also enjoy some sort of potato and sweet tea. Maybe a beer or two. Reminds of being back home in the south of Jersey, chowing down on pig and bird, listening to the distant hoot of a barn owl, eating corn on the cob and dancing to the Osbourne Brothers or Red Allen or Lester Flatt. Sign me up, please. Will be much appreciated.

  50. Robert Haley January 7, 2020 at 12:55 pm #

    A view and some fine dining – sounds tasty

  51. Dustin D January 7, 2020 at 1:02 pm #

  209. Will January 21, 2020 at 2:55 pm #

    It’s really difficult to eat barbecue while swimming; I’m sure it is much easier on a boat. For that reason, i would like to go.

  210. Debra Spencer January 21, 2020 at 2:57 pm #

    Barbecue? Count my husband and myself in!

  214. Victoria C Gantz January 21, 2020 at 3:52 pm #

    Would love these tix for our anniversary in Feb to show my partner from Montana the beautiful Willamette at night on the lovely Portland Spirit, plus he just lost his job, so a free dinner and cruise for our anniversary would be just what the doctor ordered for us.
