the portland bazaar: free breakfast from west elm!

There are few things I enjoy more than eating in Portland. There’s Pok Pok, Tasty & Sons, Toro Bravo and Meat Cheese Bread . . . I could go on forever. But the only thing I like more than eating in Portland is eating for free in Portland. And thanks to West Elm, the first 100 guests at this weekend’s Portland Bazaar will be eating and drinking for free!

If you’re one of the first 100 guests to enter the Bazaar on Saturday, you’ll receive free coffee from Heart Roasters! And if you’re one of the first 100 guests to enter the Bazaar on Sunday, you’ll receive a tasty breakfast biscuit from Pine State Biscuits. All you have to do is walk in and we’ll hand you a 15% discount card good for West Elm shopping (just in time for the holidays) and either a free cup of coffee or a breakfast biscuit. I drank way too much Heart coffee this summer and had my share of Pine State biscuits, so you’re in for a treat no matter which day you come.

West Elm also donated furniture from their Portland store to create a lounge inside the Bazaar where you can relax (or rest during shopping bouts), eat, drink or listen to music. And they made it possible for us to rent a generator, so we can have coffee and espresso-based drinks from Heart inside. So a big thanks to everyone at West Elm for helping out at this weekend’s Bazaar. Hope to see you there (our D*S team will be handing out the freebie tickets)! xo, grace

    WTF ! I thought this was Portland Maine ….Food Capitol, but no …It’s Portland Oregon a Portland wannabee.

    Come on now, we all know that it was named for the historic Maine port, but Pleeeeezzzzzeee don’t confuse the two. Portland , Maine is a food capitol of the universe …. Portland, Oregon simply has good food ……..period !

    Pine State AND Heart… well never mind about that holiday diet I was about to go on!

    @David Chase Actually, Portland is called Portland because the city’s founder, Francis Pettygrove, won a coin toss. Otherwise, we’d be Boston.
