Immix and Keen Healthcare founder Jerry Carleton, in a speech to the assembled crowd at Startup Weekend on Sunday, told any would-be entrepreneurs that if t...   More

Startup Weekend, Day 2: Fashion Bloggers and Bomb Threats

startup_3

A mild hiccup Saturday at Startup Weekend: A man who’d apparently arrived to heckle the aspirant entrepreneurs had sent a bomb threat via Twitter after being quietly ejected from the building earlier in the day. Amid brief protective police presence—six officers, three cars—the 17 teams doggedly kept building their products in the ...   More

Celebrity Tracker: Gallagher Bitches Out

Gallagher

WW arrived at Sway Bar last night, Thursday, January 27, with implausibly high hopes; we had been informed that fallen celeb Gallagher--hammer swinger, melon ruiner, shirt stainer, honky Cheech Marin--was set to perform for free, on a whim, at the label party for Portland's One-Hour Pharmacy Records showcase.

Food Reviews & Stories
Violetta, once a popular food cart, has now found fixed housing in a modernist glass box in Director Park on the South Park Blocks, just adjacent to a strangely gonadal fountain devoted to the spirit of teaching.   More

Restaurant Guide 2008


Food Reviews & Stories
The oh-so-humbly-lowercased [not here! -Ed.] remnant of the Ripe conglomerate is named for a duplex of pioneers, and along with its now-defunct sister restaurants it was indeed one of the granddaddies of the modern regime of Northwest dining: local, organic, seasonal ingredients; casual-industrial d   More

Restaurant Guide 2008


Food Reviews & Stories
Higgins’ interior is generic dark hardwood and white tablecloth, its mood elegantly formal, its servers breezily chin-up. For a restaurant that pioneered Pacific Northwest cuisine and local seasonal ingredients, the mood inside—even in the less swanky bistro—couldn’t have les   More
