SOUTHEAST -- Today, the Oregonian announced Bit House Saloon as the 2015 Bar of the Year, cooing over its "warm, welcoming decor, superlative hospitality, good music and a creative drink menu that yielded superior beverages." If you stop by this week to see how bar manager Jesse Card balances "craft cocktail refinement with dive bar joie de vivre," you can also grab Card's Wexter's Playground, a cocktail made special for Eater Cocktail Week.

LINCOLN CITY -- Gross! A man says he found a mouse in a sandwich at a Subway location in Lincoln City, prompting an investigation by a health inspector. After examining the mouse and the Subway location, the inspector determined the mouse did not come from inside of the Subway, which means it probably arrived in a bag of spinach. [Komo]

SOUTHEAST -- Of all things, hip-hop pizzeria P.R.E.A.M. has strong connections with Iceland, and so, naturally, it's teamed up with a variety of related restaurants and culinary businesses to bring you the cuisine of chef Ólafur Ágústsson, head chef of Sæmundur í sparifötunum inside Kex Hostel. This Monday, October 19, find Ágústsson's Icelandic dishes, such as fire-baked beetroots, salted cod, and lamb tartar, served a la carte all night, plus many other Icelandic things, like craft beer from Mikkeller and pizzas from Icelandic pizzeria Hverfisgata 12.

SOUTHEAST -- This Saturday, Renata's head chef Matthew Sigler and head chef of Seattle's Salare Edouardo Jordan join forces to host a 6-course dinner presented by Williams-Sonoma Open Kitchen. Renata is the Oregonian's Restaurant of the Year, and Jordan's work history is a who's who in dining: French Laundry, The Herbfarm, Per Se, Lincoln Ristorante, and Sitka and Spruce. Tickets for the Italian-slanted dinner available here.
