New, 4 comments

E. BURNSIDE—The tapas arm of Cheryl Wakerhauser's hybrid Pix Patisserie/Bar Vivant will launch a recurring Monday-evening "Flight Night" starting this Monday, March 4. Each week will feature a different spirit from Bar Vivant's lengthy list, and the spot promises that flights will "sometimes served with a twist — food pairing, trivia, or complimentary glassware." Weekly flights range from $10-$30 (industry members get 25 percent off with OLCC card), and this Monday kicks things off with a four-pour rye whiskey flight for $12. More information here.

CENTRAL EASTSIDE INDUSTRIAL—Chef Jason French of Ned Ludd has teamed with creative space Union/Pine and bar caterer Merit Badge for a monthly pop-up dinner series. Dubbed "Association," the recurring event pairs a multi-course dinner and cocktails with "inspired conversation" spearheaded by guest speakers. The inaugural event, scheduled for March 17, will feature essayist William Deresiewicz, who will be on-hand to talk about his recent food-as-high-culture piece in the New York Times. Reservations are $75 and available here. [EaterWire]

OLD TOWN—Attention vegans craving the meatier things in life: Bowery Bagels has announced its limited-edition March bagel. The "Faux-strami," a popular option at the spot's former KitchenCru pop-up, will be available in limited quantities on weekends only; for the uninitiated, it features all the familiar pastrami-making spices mixed directly into the bagel dough and comes with a pickle-and-mustard schmear for full pastrami effect. The bagel is available starting this weekend through the end of March. [EaterWire]
