The Dew Tour is taking over Portland, but if you thought all the action was happening at the Rose Quarter this weekend, you were wrong. Don't get it twisted, the main event is definitely the Wendy's Invitational, but just in case you have some extra energy at the end of a day of competitions, make sure to check out the following events taking place around the city. Need some help find the spots? Follow The Dew Tour on Foursquare and find our favorite spots.
