Mark Zuckerberg Will Buy You A Big House.

  • PIE HIGH: Salem’s Straight From New York Pizza appears to have applied for a liquor license for one half of the former Dixie Mattress Co. building—two doors down from where It’s A Beautiful Pizza closed last year. Belmont will be pie-less no longer.
  • PIE HIGHER: Speaking of pizza: Scoop just got word that Chef Brian Nakamura of Portland’s Slice Brick Oven Pizza cart nabbed sixth place in the Western Division of the 250-plus competitor World Pizza Championships in Las Vegas on Sunday. Nakamura brought the flava with his “Mushroom Madness” pizza, which combines Willamette Valley chardonnay cream sauce, fontina, Oregon mushrooms and white truffles. You can get a truffle-less version of the winning pizza at Slice’s cart at the D Street Noshery pod (Southeast 32nd Avenue and Division Street).
  • STATUS UPDATE: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was spotted out and about in Portland last weekend. Twitter spies had him at Stumptown Coffee, the Saturday Market and the PBJs Grilled peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich cart. Why the hell is he here? Well, according to gadfly Byron Beck (byronbeck.com), rumor is that Zuckerberg recently purchased a place in the Pearl District.
  • BRIDGE UP: BridgePort Brewing’s Ale House will close for four weeks for what it is calling a “modest renovation”: revamping its look, menu and entire staff. Ale House employees recently received three weeks’ notice of termination and severance pay, a representative from BridgePort Brewing Company told WW in a statement. After reopening in mid-April, the Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard joint will cease its lunchtime service, opening at 4 pm six days a week with a new menu featuring “old favorites and new standouts.” “Sometimes it becomes evident that a restaurant just needs a fresh start,” the company wrote. “That being said, we have informed the staff that we will give anyone who wished to reapply in April at the very least an interview in advance of anyone else who might apply.”

    DOWN UNDER GIVETH, DOWN UNDER TAKETH AWAY: Just when we think Australia is Portland’s ally—we’re pretty proud of fuzzy-headed Trail Blazer Patty Mills and cart-loving alt-weekly writer Ruth Brown—the country that bred the Bee Gees goes and ruins everything. Scott Garred, who has wowed Portland in a very understated fashion these past nine years as Super XX Man, is moving down under (yes, that’s how bad the U.S. economy is). The top-notch local singer-songwriter will play his final Portland show of the foreseeable future Thursday, March 17, at the Alberta Street Pub. We honestly couldn’t be any sadder—this is like Rocco’s Pizza closing down. Wait, what!? Rocco’s Pizza closed too!? Portland is so over.
