what a poor miserable uninteresting life i must live as i have only eaten in 2 of the 100 listed restaurants
Maybe we ought to start a Portland Area TA Supper Club?
LOL lougee! I kinda wondered how many of the 100 the WW reviewers themselves have been to when the restaurant picked as "Restaurant Of The Year Runner-Up" is misspelled. Glad to see though that a couple of my favorites are still far enough under the radar to have not even made the list.
90% were in portland, mostly downtown. Almost none in suburbs
phril- thats because its Willamette Week and Gresham or Tualatin might as well be John Day! :) Its hard to convince people who live in portland to go more than about 30 city blocks- believe me I've tried! :)
A TA supper club might be sort of fun- if we want to reveal ourselves :)Edited: 22 October 2010, 06:29
"A TA supper club might be sort of fun- if we want to reveal ourselves"
We could all wear masks? :)
I thin we would soon get a reputation amongst the restaurants if we booked as a group and write reviews.
I agree with phirl - the article was rather one sided. But, alas - it is WW.

You say that like it's a bad thing? }:)
If you really wanted to try this - how many Portland-metro area TAers are there that would be interested? if we kept it to small groups of 6, then it would not be near as notable.
If we do this, I want us all to wear matching lettermen's jackets :)
I think it could be fun. It could be a supper club/discussion group. We had a Portland DE meetup a few years ago, but only three DEs were able to attend. (it was a bad time, in December before Christmas)
I was only joking about the lettermen jackets - but TA has been known to send out some free swag for meetups like this.
Good catch, mistletoe! It should be Castagna.
Just for fun I counted how many of these places I have eaten at. Up to 38 and tonight it will be 39 after I check out Violetta in the wonderful new Director's Park downtown!
TA supper club?? Did i miss something? Do some of you meet for supper?
