This week in gluttony
Festival season is taking a breather for a bit as we approach the holiday weekend, but there are still tasty, albeit more low-key, happenings this week. Two involve exercise, including yoga and pickleball followed, by libations. There’s also an Oregon wine dinner, Champagne brunch, a State Fair-famous Corny Dog stand, and a chance to make biscuits under the guidance of a pro. End the week with a crawfish boil before Easter Sunday.
