CENTRAL EASTSIDE INDUSTRIAL—A star-studded lineup of local pastry chefs will join forces on Sunday, September 9 in the first-ever Portland Pastry Chefs Association Cakewalk, a sweet even to benefit Share Our Strength's anti-hunger efforts. More than 35 vendors — from the Sugar Cube to St. Jack, Le Pigeon to Missionary Chocolates — will offer samples of their sweets (alongside sips from Torii Mor Winery, Steven Smith Teamaker, etc.), and throughout the night, a $10 donation gives guests access to one of 14 cakewalks (the prize? A full-sized cake from a top Portland pastry chef). Tickets are $35 and include all dessert samples; for more information and a complete lineup of participants, head here. [EaterWire]

NORTHEAST—Per an announcement on Facebook, Oswaldo Bibiano's Mextiza will halt lunch service on October 1 for a "winter hiatus." The midday meal will return in spring 2013. [EaterWire]

SEATTLE—Seattle's Best, a subsidiary of Starbucks, is exploring one of the last bacon-free frontiers in food: thanks to a contest winner, a bacon coffee drink is being developed and will potentially appear in Seattle's Best locations across the country. The brew has "the unexpected flavors of caramelized bacon and subtle hints of pumpkin pie spice." [Eater National]
