If you book a hotel through the Travel Portland website between now and the end of March, you'll receive a Portland Passport that can be exchanged for food from several PDX eateries. Highlights include a free doughnut from Voodoo, chocolate salami from Olympic Provisions, a scoop in a waffle cone from Salt & Straw, and a biscuit basket from Country Cat. Or, you could always save gas money and spend an upcoming weekend in Seattle eating at Mighty-O, Salumi, Molly Moon's, and Serious Biscuit.
