  33. Bobby K August 21, 2014 at 14:47 #

    My understanding was that tequila has to be produced in Mexico, so that would be a great opportunity to experience the others from around the world. I’ve never tried any.

  34. Kate August 21, 2014 at 14:49 #

    It’s my best friends birthday. Would be a great way to celebrate! Salud!! :-)

    I used to think I hated tequila (for no good reason) and having rekindled my relationship recently I would love to discover some more tasty concoctions with my friends!

  40. Laurie August 21, 2014 at 14:59 #

    I have no valid reason to think I should win that is better or less than anyone else’s. Would love to go to this though!! Sounds like so much fun

  41. James August 21, 2014 at 15:01 #

    A weekend spent outside in a public place, shamelessly drinking tequila and wearing a silly hat!
    This would be no different from my usual weekend, but it would be nice for this behavior to be socially condoned for once.

  42. Jenn August 21, 2014 at 15:02 #


  43. Michelle August 21, 2014 at 15:03 #

    I love tequila and would love to attend this event!

  44. Kate August 21, 2014 at 15:10 #

    I will do the Pee-wee Herman Tequila Dance at every booth if I win.

  46. Lisa August 21, 2014 at 15:11 #

  47. HR August 21, 2014 at 15:12 #

    My wife and i are HUGE tequila fans! and we live walking distance away, so if we win tickets you won’t have to worry about us getting into a car after sampling copious delicious agave products :^)

  48. Alison August 21, 2014 at 15:13 #

    Both my husband and I love tequila, it is actually the only type of hard liquor that we both drink. It would be a great event we could both enjoy.

  49. Aubri August 21, 2014 at 15:17 #

    One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.

    • Colleen August 21, 2014 at 16:23 #

      There are some hilarious comments on here. I wish I could “like” them.

      Carlos Santana’s tequila is amazingly smooth. Try that one straight!

  50. Carissa Byrnes August 21, 2014 at 15:24 #

    Holler at your girl with some tasty tequila cocktails! Yummmmmm!! What a kickass way to spend a Friday night and start the weekend with my man!!!!!! Whoo-hoo!!

  59. Dahlia Callan August 21, 2014 at 16:29 #

  60. iris August 21, 2014 at 17:28 #

  61. Vincenzo August 21, 2014 at 17:36 #

  62. Ana August 21, 2014 at 17:40 #

    I love tequila and would be thrilled to attend. Please hook me up PdxPipeline!

  66. Jeanell Lockhart August 21, 2014 at 19:58 #

    Pick me, because when life gives me lemons, I grab some limes instead and make margarita’s.

  67. Jeanell Lockhart August 21, 2014 at 20:03 #

    I thought about this long and hard and I realized I need to go to the tequila fest as a guest of PDX Pipeline because “Good things come to those drink margarita’s while they wait.”

  68. Jeanell Lockhart August 21, 2014 at 20:07 #

    I really want to go to the Tequila Fest because my long term goal is to save the world. My short term goal: have another shot of tequila.

  69. Jeanell Lockhart August 21, 2014 at 20:18 #

    Pick us because of our loyalty to all things tequila.

    To prove my loyalty to all things tequila, if I need more green in my diet I throw another lime in my margarita.

    I look forward to going to Tequila Fest and seeing many of the other tequila supporters in Portland. ;)

  70. Richard August 21, 2014 at 20:55 #

    I remember reading tequila mockingbird when I was young. I’m definitely going!

  80. Anna August 22, 2014 at 07:03 #

    Why would I like to come to this event? Because tequila is the mother of all alcohol – feisty and spontaneous. And it makes you want to dance. Glad this is going to be an annual event.

  81. Marco August 22, 2014 at 07:21 #

  95. Stephen August 10, 2015 at 23:57 #

    My very best friend is going to be coming from Milwaukee, WI that weekend. When I told him about this fest he said, “Oh hell yeah!” Winning some free tickets to enjoy tequila fest would make his first trip to PDX very memorable.

  96. AJ August 18, 2015 at 04:56 #

    I would love to win tickets so I can take my girlfriend, she loves tequila and me and her would have a blast!
