VEGANLANDIASir Paul McCartney joined forces with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in declaring Portland the 2016 Most Vegan-Friendly City in the United States at his Friday concert at the Moda Center. Vtopia Cheese Shop and Deli and adjacent Homegrown Smokehouse and Deli shared much of the spotlight, with PETA Vice President Dan Mathews also highlighting our vegan punk-metal bar, Black Water Bar, and our vegan strip club (no, not the one offering gluten-free lap dances). PETA says it also chose Portland for its vegan family medical practitioners and vegan real estate agents. [Oregonian]

Render's mission is to "to smash the patriarchy in the food industry," and in general, it features interviews with influential women and feature articles focused on "important social justice issues" in the food industry.

NOB HILLThe Waiting Room, the Fugazi and champagne-inspired restaurant that took over the old Peddler and Pen Tavern location last month, now offers brunch on Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The news is still somewhat under the radar, so you won't likely find a line. What you will find are its signature fried chicken and oyster preparations, as well as all these Southern-fried brunch dishes, including something called the Duck Fat Fry Omelet, involving cheese curds and "duck gravy":
