HASSLE-FREE HOLIDAYS: With holiday shopping days beginning to dwindle down to a precious few,  you might feel the pressure to "get it done."

Downtown’s “Holidate” events, however, can take the busy out of the Holiday season and replace it with cheer.

And if the shopping gets too intense, maybe you should pop into The Original, or one of many downtown restaurants for a special Holidate drink? What more could a shopper need?

Retailers ranging from pop-up shop Emit to iconic department store Macy’s will offer the type of holiday experiences you can only get in Downtown Portland. Restaurants like Red Star Tavern, Nel Centro and Gracie’s, will serve holiday themed drinks, while The Westin Hotel will offer discounted rooms. (Just use the code FMPARK when making the reservation.) With easy shopping and access to downtown’s thriving restaurant scene and a cozy place to stay, “Holidate” is perfect for those looking for a quick holiday retreat without leaving the city.
