VEGGIE WIREAviary chef Sarah Pliner's $45 Vegetarian Dinner Series gets the summer treatment on Thursday, August 6, and will feature seven courses showcasing what Oregon grows best: vegetables, and lots of them, including some from Pliner's own home garden. Expect dishes like chilled beet and lemongrass soup with coconut nasturtium and pickled shallots. Reserve by calling the shop. [EaterWire]

MUSTARD ON TAP—It's official. International mustard giant Maille has chosen Portland as its first west coast city to pilot its tap mustard program. That means instead of taking home different Maille jars to figure out what your favorite flavor is, you can now sample them and take home the flavor you like best in little ceramic jars. The program kicked off yesterday at World Foods in the Pearl District. [EaterWire]

ICE CREAM!!!—Salt & Straw's new July flavors include marionberry with goat cheese and habanero chiles, roasted strawberry with toasted white chocolate and blackberry with vanilla cake. Visit July 19 (national ice cream day), and hashtag your social photo with #NationalIceCreamDay along with the handle of your favorite nonprofit. They'll donate a portion of that day's sales to the nonprofit tagged most. [EaterWire]
