Vodka Infusions at Kachka; Rotating Carts at Base Camp

CENTRAL EASTSIDE INDUSTRIAL— It's hard to top Kachka's spicy horseradish vodka, or the 11 other Russian-food-friendly infusions on the menu, but starting this month the cozy Eastern European charmer is working with guest chefs to create $11 flights of special vodka infusions. First up are Greg and Gabrielle Denton of Ox, whose cucumber-keffir lime, chorizo and charred rosemary trio will be available for the month of September. [EaterWire]

A CONFERENCE ROOM NEAR YOU— Nobody likes meetings, but Red Radish, a new corporate catering service, aims to ease the pain of being pulled away from Candy Crush by offering fresh, seasonal breakfast platters and box lunches you'll actually want to eat. Chef-owner Timothy Bartling cut his teeth at Zuni Café in San Francisco and went on to run a catering business in New York for 14 years. For crowd-pleasers like Carlton Farms pork loin with rosemary mayo and pickled onions, he sources meat and produce from small local farms, and breads from Portland favorites like Philippe's Bread and Little T Baker.

CENTRAL EASTSIDE INDUSTRIAL— Get your shawarma-fries fix now, because Base Camp Brewing is rotating its carts like it rotates its taps. This means Gonzo food cart will be packing up Oct. 18 and looking for a new place to park come spring. Owner Tal Caspi will be busy as ever, though. He'll still be popping up with his Coriander brunch at Hogan's Goat pizza in Hollywood on Saturdays and Sundays. He's in the process of packaging his hummus for retail at Food Front Co-op and Sheridan Fruit. And he's just put in an application for a booth at the Hollywood farmers market. [EaterWire]
