Earlier this year we launched A New Entertainment Experience for Bing, and part of those new features was a new way to really Experience the music with Bing. We have found that Bing shares a passion and enthusiasm for music with music fans everywhere and today we are excited to be partnering with Alpha Broadcasting in Portland, OR, on their new live performance venue called The Bing Lounge.
The Bing Lounge will bring Rose City residents a line-up of performances to enable the community to come together and experience great music, sports and culture. In case you are not able to make it to The Bing Lounge, all of the performances will be available exclusively on Bing Video in HD.
The lounge will host up to 80 musical performances, a monthly medical speaker series with OHSU, a quarterly Business Decision-Maker series, visiting and local athlete outings and much more. The lineup is starting today with Five For Fighting, so make sure to check back for the links to all the latest HD videos.
Beyond music, Portland is also recognized as the street food capital of the world. What better way to embrace and celebrate all of the unique and numerous food cart options to the foodies of Portland than with The Bing Food Cart Finder, which is available free at Bing.com. This app offers a unique experience that allows you to easily navigate the Portland food cart scene on your PC or on the go. It will give you details on more than 250 food carts in the Portland area, including editorial reviews, photos and menus to help you decide what and where to grab your next meal.
Access to some of the best music and food is what Portland is all about and we hope with The Bing Lounge and The Bing Food Cart Finder you are able to experience the food and music that make Portland such a great entertainment city.
