5th Annual PDX Nog-Off
December 16, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The PDX Nog-Off: the best damn holiday party you don’t want to miss. Craft cocktails+culinary deliciousness with a non-citrus twist: it’s an egg nog competition!
The 5th Annual Nog-Off, sponsored by Bacardi, is taking over the entire second-story of Jupiter NEXT hotel and will be the most visually stimulating event you’ve seen us bring you so far!! Wipe off those camera phones because your instagram is going to want to see this.
Hey Love will be there to shake and stir holiday-inspired cocktails to make your tastebuds merry. Drinks will include a vegan cashew milk nog at the main bar, winged angels handing out Angel’s Envy bourbon punch, and word on the street is a slushy machine pouring blustery booze for your nog-warmed faces.
Don your jolliest holiday attire with our annual best holiday-dressed contest – not just ugly sweaters, people! (But those are strongly encouraged.) The Missy Maki, our MC, and Santa will give out prizes-a-plenty.
This year the part of Santa will be played by Portland’s poster-child: Erick Russ of Pono Brewing, who is also launching a nog-spiced IPA called “NOGatomi Tower”!
As always, the star of the party is the egg nog competition and you vote for people’s choice. Put your holiday judgey-pants on and tell us: who makes the best egg nog in Portland?
