E. BURNSIDE: So the most recent promised opening date for Hiroshi Ikegaya's Mirakutei — January 24 — has come and gone, but a rep tells Eater that the highly-anticipated spot should be open by next Thursday (February 3). Fingers crossed and all.
NORTH PORTLAND: The Hop & Vine's brand-spankin-new adjacent bottle shop will celebrate its grand opening next Saturday (February 5) with free beer tastings
from 3pm to 7pm and $5 drink specials after seven o'clock. The expanded retail space (it was formerly used for H&V art openings and special events) ups the bar's selection of beer, wine, and sake. Huzzah.
