42ND AVENUE FOOD CARTS -- Since Kim Jong Grillin' joined the Northeast 42nd Avenue Food Cart pod in June, readers have been wondering who else would get in on the action, and according to the Oregonian, the pod, located near NE Killingsworth in the Concordia/Cully neighborhood, now features Tamale Rose Mexican Food, Pupuseria Imperial, and a beer garden operated by Pollo Norte. It plans to ultimately have eight food carts.

BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU FESTIVAL -- It's a French tradition to pound beaujolais the moment it's released each year, and the tradition has spread beyond French borders. Co-presented by Alliance Française and the French-American Chamber of Commerce, the Beaujolais Nouveau event at the Heathman Restaurant and Bar is one of the largest such celebrations on the West Coast and now in its 14th year. Tickets are on sale. Get them before they're gone. And they will be gone.

BREAKSIDE BREWERY -- The Woodlawn neighborhood-based brewery announces Ray Veillet as chief operations officer, and in the press release, Veillet says, "I was drawn to Breakside because of its unlimited growth potential." Veillet's background includes "several decades" as a lawyer and corporate executive, and he was most recently the president of PicoJet and vice president of operations for Siteworks Design Build, the design group behind many Portland breweries and restaurants, as well as the forthcoming Pine Street Market.
