Be sure to confirm the availability of the event before you head out to attend, due to last minute changes that sometime happen. Want to submit an event? Fill out this form.

4. Fire and Stone To Close End of February 2018

This morning I read the news on Instagram that Fire and Stone, a wood-fired restaurant in the Alameda/Beaumont-Wilshire area, is closing. The news made me quite sad, as I’ve been a fan of the restaurant since before I moved to Portland. When I was the editor of Northeast Neighbors magazine, we featured them there, and a number of local folks I interviewed over the months also spoke highly of them. I’ve eaten a number of meals there. I am sure everyone is sorry to see them go.

3. Hollywood Says Goodbye Mio Sushi, Hello BiBim Bap House

A couple days before I got sick, I was walking home from the gym and noticed that a bunch of guys were taking stuff out of the Mio Sushi restaurant next door to the 24 Hour Fitness. It seemed odd, but I thought perhaps they were replacing old service dishes with new ones. Well, I was wrong—Eater has the details. Mio Sushi is gone, BiBim Bap House will open on March 19.

2. Saima Thai & Sushi Coming to Old Pono Soul Farm Kitchen Space on Sandy Blvd

Well, looks like my suspicions were right—a new restaurant is indeed opening up in the old Pono Soul Farm Kitchen space. Saima Thai & Sushi is moving in and is “coming soon.” There’s been activity inside since the start of December; my guess is that they will open either a) in time for the holidays, or b) after the new year.

1. Good Times at SheBrew 2018

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the fourth annual SheBrew, a beer, cider, and mead festivalthat features female-identifying brewers. One aspect of the event was to support the work of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) through the $20 admission cost. Full disclosure: I attended as media, so my access to the event was comped; however, I admire the work of the Human Rights Campaign, and after seeing them at the event I decided to set up a recurring monthly donation to them.

  1. I am so bummed about Fire and Stone also. They were one of our favorite neighborhood brunch spots and I was always puzzled why they were so empty on weekend mornings. I will completely miss their biscuits with lemon curd and preserves and also the fried chicken waffle. I hope they make a reappearance again elsewhere.

    1. My pleasure! I think we are in for even more action as we head to summer and moving into the end of the year. Portland is full of so much greatness and amazing things to do – I love it!
