New, 1 comment

NORTHWEST— More than 16 Portland restaurants will join forces this Friday, August 22 for a benefit on behalf of "Yes on 92," the ballot measure that would require labeling on GMO foods. Oregon Right to Know is the grassroots campaign behind the event, which will feature bites by Trifeca Tavern, Park Kitchen, Luce, Bar Avignon, and more. Tickets are $100; more information here.

LLOYD CENTER— It's unaffiliated with Nong herself, but those wanting to group-watch cart queen Nong Poonsukwattana on Chopped tonight can gather at Spirit of 77 for an unofficial viewing party. As the invitation notes, Poonsukwattana herself will not be in attendance; the episode airs on the Food Network at 10p.m. tonight. [EaterWire]

VARIOUS LOCATIONS— In the latest installment in its guest-chef "Chefwich" series, Lardo mixes it up with a dessert sandwich option courtesy Alissa Frice of Frice Pastry. The peach-and-basil ice cream sandwich (nestled between almond cookies) benefits the Oregon Food Bank. [EaterWire]
