Happy Weekend, FoPo!

I was pretty ok with that dose of gray and wet yesterday.  We may get another, but then it’s back to hot.  Hopefully tolerably hot, though.  We also hope you have a thing or two lined up for the weekend, and if so…enjoy.

Here are your weekend tidbits…

– August 5-11 is Portland Burger Week, or so says the Merc.  And to play along, several Portland restaurants will be showcasing their own custom-crafted burger and making them available for cheap—five bucks (if you consider that cheap).  Foster Burger gets to participate, and they’ll be showing off the Kimcheeseburger, a mix of beef, bacon, kimchee, pepper jack cheese, spicy cilantro aioli, and buns from An Xuyen.  Daaammmn!

– This is happening (————————>) …and I sorta can’t wait.

– New food cart on Foster: Local Girls Hawaiin Shave Ice and Grill.  Seems like a mouthful—even an acronym is lengthy—but the shave ice looks good, and traditional Hawaiin dishes (yes, Spam) do, too.  Pay ’em a visit.

– Speaking of Spam and Foster food carts (huh?), the two merge in a couple weeks for…yes, a celebration of Spam, aptly dubbed, Spam A La Cart.  We’ll let you guys be the judge of that one.

– Also in a couple weeks (just to keep on your radar), N.W.I.P.A. will be celebrating one year on Foster.  I never thought my palate could tolerate so much hops, but the guys over there changed all that.  And to think it’s only been a year.  Happy Birthday to be, gang.  Celebrate with them on August 17 with food, music, ice cream, and beer.

– Friday night music: Jive Coulis performs at Gemini; Rogue Blue Grass band takes on Torta; and Johnny Payola’s Hayride headlines Starday’s night of honky tonkin’.
Saturday: Torta brings in Rainstick Cowbell and Progress Band.

– Have you eaten at Lily Day Cafe yet?  I know this much—the “Boot” is a radical breakfast sandwich (think Italian sausage, sun dried tomatoes, provolone, egg, zuchini).  And I’ll venture to say the decor, music, and sweet red booths make for a funner/funkier hang than (gasp!) Sweetness.  Seriously, check ’em out.  Free wifi, too.

– And finally, for the seventy billionth time: National Night Out is this Tuesday evening.

Alright Foster, have a good weekend.  Be cool.
