Wendy Lane Stevens will enjoy a proud mom moment in Austin, Texas, where she’ll watch her son receive his MBA from the University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business. As luck would have it, graduation coincides with the Hot Luck Fest (May 18-21), a new food and music festival generating considerable buzz and drool. It’s easy to see why: it’s the brainchild of America’s pitmaster Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue, Mike Thelin of Feast Portland and James Moody of Fun Fun Fest.
Shannon Riggs is pursuing a #50statesby5 challenge for her daughters with a spring break trip to the American Southwest this month. While her eldest has already met the challenge, her youngest will reach the 49-state mark with Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

Portland does March Madness a little differently than the rest of the country. Sure, we love hoops and support our local teams…we’ll fill out our brackets with the best of ‘em. But really, we’re playing a whole different ballgame.
Around here, March is Portland Dining Month, and a record-breaking 122 participants are serving up three-course meals for just $29 per person every night as we, well, write. All. Month. Long.
Portland Dining Month is brought to us from LANE client, Travel Portland and is the collaborative work of some of the most influential foodies in town. A veritable festival of food, it gives locals and visitors alike a chance to experience the best of the city’s renowned food culture without breaking the bank.
