Our House Dinner Series Serves Up Community, Themed Cuisine


The Our House Dinner Series is back for another season of of mouthwatering menus and stimulating conversation.

The appeal of this enduringly popular series is multifold: a limited number of seats at intimate and unique environs, hosted by and with some of the most interesting people in Portland, all to benefit a pioneering community resource.

And, with a variety of price points (from $30 to $150), there’s a meal or three to suit your budget, and your favorite cuisine. Think Hawaiian, Southwestern, Eastern Mediterranean, Asian, Latin American, French, Italian, German, Vietnamese, Southern, and more. The themes are just as diverse: A “Soulful” Sunday Brunch, Roaring ’20s Bash, Wine Tasting Garden Party, a Sauvie Island “Sizzle & Cycle,” a Soup Night, a Street Food Adventure, Art in the Pearl, A Swiss Christmas Revisited… There’s something for everyone, and something to take your palate well into spring 2016.

All dinner proceeds go directly to Our House to support low-income people in our community living with HIV/AIDS, including health care, housing, and other vital services.

Several of the more than 70 (!) events have already sold out, so don’t delay — browse the series and reserve your seat at the table today.

Oh, and if you want to get to know your PQ staff a bit better, get your tickets now for the Sunday, August 16 Pig Roast with your Literati Hosts, PQ Monthly and Brilliant Media Publisher Melanie Davis and Dykes on Bikes Portland President Gabriela Kandziora. Dine in their home’s beautiful English garden and meadow, and feast on traditional Cuban fare (vegetarian options are available with advance notice).

Regardless of your pick(s), you’ll want to take advantage of these one-of-a-kind events, presented by gracious hosts throughout the area.
