Lion Heart Kombucha, FunHouse Lounge Now Open

In this pre-weekend Friday Opening Report, two new spots that sound way too much Portland:


NORTHWEST ALPHABET: The Oregonian reports that Lion Heart Kombucha, which has been available wholesale in Portland since 2008, has opened a retail shop on NW 17th and Lovejoy. Owners Jared and Amanda Englund will sell their fermented tea from the space on Thursdays through Saturdays, 11am-6pm, and a grand opening celebration on January 28 promises free kombucha tastings, for the uninitiated.

CENTRAL EASTSIDE INDUSTRIAL: Theater venue/bar Funhouse Lounge, a collaboration between Trenton Shine and Gladstone Street Pub co-owner Andy Barrett, has opened at SE 11th Avenue and SE Division. In addition to pay-what-you-like improv, the spot pushes bottled beer, shots (there's a strict "no mixed drinks" policy, apparently), and bites like Frito pie, Twinkie trifles, and sandwiches slathered with bacon jam.
