SOUTHEAST—Garden Bars are sprouting up faster than spring dandelions, and the fourth will open in the old Son of a Biscuit space at 2045 SE Division Street this Monday, March 28. The 20-seat, fast-casual counter-service restaurant will offer the usual roster of salads, as well as glasses of beer, wine, and cider. [EaterWire]
DOWNTOWN—Bailey's Taproom is expanding—again. This time, it's expanding across the street rather than up.
WWeek reports the Brewed in Oregon bottle shop, which will carry Oregon bottled beers. Bailey's Taproom tells Eater the endeavor will be called BrewedOregon and will move into the old record store at 214 SW Eighth Ave. "BrewedOregon will actually focus on brewery branded merchandise," says a Bailey's employee. "Imagine a Made In Oregon—but solely focused on beer paraphernalia and brewery gear. Bottles will be available to go, but this certainly isn't our primary initiative." Expect doors to open sometime this spring. [EaterWire]
SOUTHEAST/NORTHEAST—For years, the Bunk Bars at the Wonder Ballroom and on SE Water Avenue have offered discounts on happy hour drinks, but discounted food was off limits. That changed this week, when both places started offering fries, tots, and sandwiches at reduced prices, from 3 to 6 p.m., daily. [EaterWire]
