Basa Basa Pops Up Again; Breakside's Anniversary Bash

NORTHEAST— Caprial and John Pence's Korean fried chicken concept Basa Basa (which closed after eight months in the Ocean) micro-restaurant complex) is back from the dead: The Pences will pop-up a multi-course, Basa Basa-inspired meal at NE's Old Salt Marketplace on Saturday, May 17. In addition to the wings and sides from the Basa menu, the dinner will include courses like a green curry bisque with pork shoulder, shrimp and watercress pancakes, and coconut cakes for dessert. Reservations are $40 and available by emailing here. [EaterWire]

NORTHEASTBreakside Brewery will celebrate its fourth anniversary this weekend with its now-annual block party: On Saturday, May 17, the brewery will erect a tent over part of NE Dekum to create an outdoor beer garden pouring four new anniversary beers (including a "EuroTrash" Hoppy Lager), barrel-aged beers, and some guest brews. The event is free to attend (there will be live music and food carts), to drink, it's $12 for a commemorative mug and five tasting tokens. More information here. [EaterWire]

EVERYWHERE— Two more Portland-area restaurants have received city approval to construct "Street Seats," which designate space on public roadways for outdoor dining spaces. The Oregonian reports NW 23rd's Lompoc Tavern and SE Stark's Bonfire Lounge got the green-light from the Portland's Bureau of Transportation; only three of the 10 new 2014 applicants were approved.
