James Beard in the House!: Your Weekend Guide to Beard

In case you haven't heard, the nominations for this year's James Beard Awards will be announced right hurr in town on Monday, and a few folks will be celebrating in style:

DOWNTOWN: General admission tickets to the official James Beard in Oregon Celebration of Superstars & Master Chefs event have been sold out forever, but if you have $500 handy, VIP tickets are still available as of press time. The event features every Oregon chef who's been nominated for a JBA in the past, cooking up small bites for 750 guests at the Multnomah Athletic Club. Expect a crowd.

PEARL DISTRICT: In honor of Beard, Metrovino will serve up its first-ever weekend happy hour on Saturday (from 4-6pm) and Sunday (all night, from 5:30pm-close). On the special happy hour menu: A "meat donut" that features the classic fried-dough treat, served up with braised beef and marrow, obviously.

EVERYWHERE: Just an FYI: As the Award announcements go down at downtown's OCI on Monday morning, Team Eater PDX will be live-blogging the ceremony over at the mothership. Tune in starting at 11am PST. It'll be fun.
