A group of 8 of us are heading to Portland to run a marathon on the 4th of July. We are looking for dinner options that will appease our ravenous souls/soles. I'm typically a well-researched hound and have a run of options for the rest of the trip but I'm stumped for a spot that will cater to that many, keep us close to the action (fireworks, etc), and not be overrun with too many people, though liveliness is certainly okay!
Are food trucks operational on the 4th of July?
Is there a recommended spot that would take an advance reservation on the holiday?
Yes, we will eat anything and are not picky about price... we are also not opposed to establishments with BEER!
Thanks for your help!!
