Altabira – Your Ticket to a Fabulous 4th of July

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

altabira_2Each year, the Fourth of July leaves many of us clamoring for a spot along Portland’s?waterfront to view the fireworks extravaganza. We find ourselves crammed in with a bunch of thoughtless people, many playing their music obnoxiously loud, as if we actually wanted to be listening to it. We fight the traffic, look for a parking spot, walk for miles, then try to edge out the tall giant in front of us for a clear view of the light display.

This year, I invite you to choose a more civilized approach, and in the process, enjoy a relaxed and delicious dinner AND?the best show in town from the rooftop of Altabira City Tavern. The evening begins with a festive and patriotic cocktail by Bar Manager Becca June and includes a 4-course BBQ Dinner with optional beer and wine pairings followed by a clear view of the fireworks display from Altabira’s?comfortable rooftop patio. All are welcome (even the kids), but hurry because just a few seats are still available.
