SE BELMONT: A tipster reports that the Globe Bar & Cafe has called it quits after 14 months in business. Per a message on the restaurant's Facebook page: "After much hand wringing and a few tears, we have come to the difficult decision of selling the Globe. It has been a wild ride, we learned a lot in the process and we thank everyone for the support through thick and thin. We had a great crew and could not have made it this far without them." No word yet on what will take over the space, which had previously housed a waffle cafe and a Lebanese restaurant. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN: As part of a national social experiment, Honest Tea will set up an "unmanned pop-up" tomorrow, October 4, in Pioneer Courthouse Square, with bottles of tea available for the kind-of-suggested donation of $1 each. No one will be around to collect the funds, hence the whole "honest"/honor system experiment, but all proceeds collected will be donated to City Year. [EaterWire]

DENVER: If the drunken haze of intelligible Tweets wasn't obvious, this weekend marked the 2011 Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado, and three Portland breweries — Laurelwood Brewing, MacTarnahan's, and Breakside Brewery — emerged with medals (two silvers and a bronze). The state of Oregon took home 15 awards overall, with the Bend-based Deschutes Brewery winning three. For the complete list of Oregon winners, click through here. [EaterWire]
