The Weekend Guide for March 1st – 3rd

The weather is still cold AF, but the days are getting longer and it’s the first Friday of the month, and that’s as a good a reason as any for us to celebrate!


It might feel like winter will never end right about now, but PortlandZoo is partying like it’s summer with the release of a collab made in hoppy heaven by Bunker Brewing and Oxbow Brewing, Endless Summer. Grab a Hawaiian Pork Sandwich, a beer, and bring the summery vibes that we all need right about now.
