The weather looks 50-50 right now on rain this weekend, but the forecast has been changing positively. I imagine the sky will look similar to this picture, which is very nice really. The Portland Short Bus debuted earlier this month and we are giving away a package for two people ($60 value) to ride the bus to three hillside wineries this Saturday. It includes a sack lunch, bottled water, etc. Also tastings are often comped at wineries when you purchase a bottle.
WIN PACKAGE: To win, comment on this post why you would like to attend. Winner will be drawn and emailed on Friday, June 29th.
FREE PORTLAND: We give out 100s of $$$ in free tickets every week including to many of the top events in Portland. Join our email list if you like free stuff

Last Day of Rain (Maybe) Wine Run

Ticket Price: $30 Each | More info: portlandshortbus.com
Here at Portland Short Bus, we strive to predict the weather with at least half the accuracy of your friendly neighborhood meteorologist, and we can say with confidence that it may or may not rain this Saturday, and if it does, it might be the last day of rain for the summer. Maybe.
What is our secret to this startling accuracy? We can’t tell you exactly, but we can tell you this: we dip our magic meteorite in a glass of Pinot Noir and it whispers the secret to us.
You and 11 other random strangers are invited to hop on our bus Lucille to spend this possibly sunny, possibly wet Saturday drinking fine Oregon wines and soaking up the rays/precipitation at 3 of our favorite hillside wineries.
This is a casual wine tour, no high-falutin’ fancy pantsy swishing and spitting here, feel free to be as sexy or casual as you want. Chew gum and drink Merlot for all we care, it is getting out there that counts.
The bus will depart from a centralized Portland brunch location at 11am (details emailed upon purchase of ticket). The Bus Mom will provide every passenger with a sack lunch (be sure to note any food allergies). Bottled water is provided.
You can consume alcohol on the bus, but we heavily advise leaving the hard stuff at home. It doesn’t taste as good coming up as it does going down.
Tasting fees are not included in the ticket price, but most wineries will waive the fee if you buy a bottle or two.
