One night in Portland, before and after Blazers game.

I will be in Portland for one Thursday night in March.

We have tickets to the Blazers game, which starts at 7:30. What is a good early dinner option near the Rose Garden for before the game? I would like for it to be casual, moderately priced (Entrees under $25), type of cuisine is really not important as we eat basically any type of food.

After the game, which bar has a good beer selection near by as well. Focus on American Craft Brews, since Portland obviously does that so well.

Thanks in advance.

  1. After the game, you should visit Upright Brewing. Widmer is another option, as is the White Eagle. Widmer would be a good bet before.

      upright is only open BEFORE blazer games. but i would second this. have beers before, dinner after.

    2. Before the game, just a bit further north off of MLK Blvd., consider Toro Bravo or belly. They don't normally get a pre-game rush and you can enjoy your meal.

        TB is a great idea. Get there right at opening, and you'll easily make the game.
