Raven and Rose beet salad was an excellent combination of flavors and presentation, as was the house wine (but be careful, it's not the happy hour wine, as we assumed, and is pretty spendy.)
If you have will call, arrive early for the will call line can be long - but will move fast. There is tons of cheap $5 - $7 dollar parking lots close by
Parking was easy and only $6 in the parking lot just behind the killer auditore and. It is $6 on evenings and weekends and is just one block away!
we went to a Sunday evening performance, no restaurants open in walking distance. Try the kelly restaurant next time.
The temperature outside was 98 degrees and with vulnerable people standing outside waiting for the doors to open. We had to walk a bit from the max, which made the night even hotter. They opened the doors to stand in the lobby 30 minutes before the show, which doesn't leave much time to get a refreshment, use the restroom and find your seat. In extreme weather, it would be nice to open the doors a little earlier.
Parking is a challenge in the lot close to the Auditorium with very RUDE attendants. Be prepared to being treat poorly.
Morton's happy hour. They are gracious from the curb to the wait staff and bar tender.ambiance and food can't be beat. Well worth it of you can afford it.
George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker at Keller Auditorium
If you come in from the West don't count on bus #58 to get you back there, the last one is scheduled for 1107, but must have gone through earlier; had to walk to Morrison to catch the MAX.
Not a lot of food options on a Sunday night, especially if you are going with kids. Plan a head to eat elsewhere than right by the venue.
The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses — Master Quest
You can get basic mixed drinks on the main floor when you come in - off to your far right. But they told us they have a martini bar up on the second floor that makes amazing fresh drinks! Come early to enjoy these!
Oregon Ballet Theatre: Cinderella
Best place to park is just a block away at Clay/2nd in the parking garage.
Bistro Marquee across the street is a bit pricey for dinner, but has great happy hour specials if you can get a seat in the lounge.
We forgot that Keller Aud. opens a restaurant upstairs for special events. This would have been really convenient for our older guests.
The weather was normal for Portland. You know: cold, a little windy. I wore a nice shirt. Also black socks.
