Late Shift: PDX Media Light Up Night at Departure

February 12, 2010

Just because you work late doesn’t mean you should miss out on all the fun, right? That was the idea behind Departure Restaurant’s “special media tasting party” that didn’t start until 10:30 pm and was created specifically for those members of the fourth estate who don’t usually end their shift until the midnight hour. “Daytime” media was also encouraged to attend the event held at The Nines notable Asian eatery but most of the media folks sipping on high-flying cocktails and sakes, as well as nibbling on Chefs Matt Christianson and Jeremy Frice’s house-pickled wild ‘shrooms, Kobe meatballs with foie gras, miso black cod and “Kung Pao” style chicken oysters, were those dreamy news folks you stare at on your television screen right before you go to sleep including KATU’s Craig Birnbach, Meghan Kalkstein, KGW sports-dudes Adam Bjaranson and Joe Becker, FOX’s Sophie Soong, Andrew Padula, Brent Weisberg, and Jim Hyde pictured above with KOIN’s Kelley Day.
