Being Beard


Care to follow in James Beards' footsteps? WWeek retraces the former haunts of the Portland native, who was born in the city in 1903. Among them: "The go-to spot for Beard in his early 30s and his acting friends was the Town Tavern, which served everything from steaks to tamales to sukiyaki to burgers." The site of the former tavern, at SW 9th and Stark, is now a police substation. [WW]
