E. BURNSIDE— Last month, the EastBurn earned major props for biting back at a Yelper by pledging a portion of August's grilled cheese sales to the Portland Women's Crisis Line. Now, the bar will double-down on the fundraising efforts with its first-annual Grilled Cheese Invitational, inviting nine local restaurants to throw down their best takes on the sandwich. Tickets to the August 31 event are $20, with $10 benefiting PWCL. More information here. [EaterWire]
