PORTLAND, Oregon (September 7, 2010) – Can you taste the difference between IPA and Porter or between a pop rock and a sweet tart? Come ready to indulge your taste buds at Pix Pâtisserie’s next Gastronomical Trivia night on Tuesday, September 14 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the N. Williams location. Pix is mixing it up with a game night devoted to all things tasty in 6 categories from beer and charcuterie to macarons, cold cereal and nostalgic candy. Teams of 1-4 players are eligible to play for $5 per person, including tasty treats. Every round has a winner of a $25 Pix gift certificate. For more information and reservations, please call 503-282-6539 or email email@example.com. Deadline for reservations is Monday, September 13th.
“Portland is a city that loves great food and drink,” says Pix owner Cheryl Wakerhauser. “What better trivia topic than candy, cheese and charcuterie? This month we are taking things one step further and challenging your taste buds as well as your brain cells. You may know that Compte is a cheese from France, but can you pick it out in a blind tasting?”
