N. MISSISSIPPI/WEST END—The two locations of Ruby Jewel will celebrate Passover with three speciality ice cream flavors: chocolate and pistachio covered mazto, coconut almond macaroon, and charoset, described as "our take on a traditional Passover Seder dish, with reduced apple cider, honey candied walnuts, and a splash of Manischewitz." It should be noted that the ice cream itself is not kosher, but "inspired" by the Passover season. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN—Starting this afternoon, the Oregon Distillers Guild throws a boozy weekend tasting. At the educationally minded TOAST, which takes over downtown's World Trade Center today and tomorrow (Saturday, March 23), guests can sample tastes of everything from absinthe to whiskey, with more than 150 different spirits from 50 distillers and producers. For alcohol absorption, a "food cart court" will park Home Plate Sliders, Thrive Pacific NW, Flyin' Hawaiian, and Retrolicious outside for a la carte eating. More information and tickets available here. [EaterWire]

NORTHEAST—In its latest round of click-bait, Travel + Leisure names its list of America's Best Places to Eat Like a Local, and Beast chef Naomi Pomeroy reveals her local pick: NE's Tortilleria y Tienda de Leon's, where "the nopales (cactus) salad is a must." [T+L]
