Woohoo! It's Feast Portland week! My head is spinning with anticipation and my stomach is ready!
If you are headed to any Feast Portland events, please let me know. I'll be there Thursday through Sunday (thanks to my Feast Blogger Media Pass) and I'd love to meet up with fellow everyday foodies, winos (short for Wine Afficianados, of course), beer pals, and general real food/whole food advocates.
Thanks to Tillamook Cheese, I'll be at the Widmer Brothers Brewing Sandwich Invitational presented by Lincoln Motor Company, AND... I will also have a special Tillaphone that lets you make Comfort Calls for grilled cheese deliveries from 11:00 pm - 3:00 am, Friday September 20 and Saturday September 21 (must be within 10 miles of Pioneer Square).
That's right: GRILLED. CHEESE. DELIVERY.
I'm sorry. What was that again? I said:
GRILLED. CHEESE. DELIVERY.
And, since it's Tillamook (and y'all know how much I love this local brand and their amazing products), it's not just any ol' grilled cheese sandwich that you can get. Oh nooooo they are elevating the grilled cheese game as usual.
At the Feast Portland Sandwich Invitational, Tillamook will be sampling three specialty dessert grilled cheeses.
Attendees will get to sample from the following and vote for their favorite at the event through social media:
The Dark Chocolate Ginger
Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar with dark chocolate and candied ginger
Chocolate covered pretzels with bananas, peanut butter and Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese
The Marionberry Waffle
Tillamook Vintage White Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Marionberry compote on Ego waffles
The fan favorite from the Sandwich Invitational will be featured on the Comfort Call menu, which will also include:
The Triple Threat Grilled Cheese
Tillamook Colby Jack, Vintage White Extra Sharp Cheddar and Sharp Cheddar Cheeses
Sweet & Spicy BBQ Grilled Cheese
Tillamook Sharp Cheddar and Pepper Jack cheese with caramelized onions, BBQ sauce and bacon
Normally, I am not a fan of phone calls. But this is one delicious call I cannot wait to make... and to share! So tweet me at either my business account or my new blog account, or leave a comment here, and let me know if you'll be at the Feast Portland Widmer Brothers Brewing Sandwich Invitational or any other Feast Portland events on Friday or Saturday. If we can meet up, you might just get treated to the VIP grilled cheese Tillaphone treatment!

I was granted a Feast Portland Blogger Media Pass to attend certain events, and will be attending the Sandwich Invitational courtesy of Tillamook Cheese. No blog or social media coverage is being required by either party. As always, all opinions are my own. They are real, and they are spectacular.
