We’re definitely in the thick of autumn, and Halloween is nearly upon us. Time’s flying, and next weekend we’ll be setting our clocks back. Before we know it, we’ll be eating turkey and looking at 2017. As for our next few days: we get some sun today, then rain Saturday and Sunday. Find refuge on Foster—there’s plenty enough going on.
Here are your weekend tidbits…
– The Portland Mercado and Carts on Foster were both burgled and vandalized this week, leaving thousands of dollars in damages and stalled business openings in its wake. Fortunately for the Mercado, the city and community stepped up with big time donations to help them get back on their feet. Unfortunately, Carts on Foster may not get the same level of charity going their way. However, you can help them still by planning some of your meals around the cart pod. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, beer, art, or a hair cut—Carts on Foster has you covered. Show them some extra love, folks.
– For the parents out there: O’Malley’s will be hosting a family-friendly happy hour on Halloween. There will be musicians playing kids’ songs, a costume contest, food, and adult beverages. Right on.
– Construction appears to be underway at 5811 SE Boise, which will eventually plop 30 units of housing just off Foster (behind 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu at 58th and Foster). This will be the first step in adding housing to the corridor and alleviating some of the tight rental conditions in the neighborhood (though, we’ll need more to make a real dent).
– We’re a little behind on news this week, so feel free to share what else is happening and going on.
