It’s Friday, which means it’s time for the weekly Stuff Eater PDX Didn’t Cover column, also known as EaterWire. This was a pretty packed news week — a new food hall is opening in Montavilla, Ristretto Roasters closed its second cafe this year — but there were a few little news nuggets that never got their day on the homepage. Read on for more:

HATTIE P’S — Extremely popular hot chicken spot Hattie B’s will bring the heat to the SE Hawthorne Lardo for a two-day pop-up. On Sept. 13 and Sept. 14, Hattie’s will serve plates of chicken, from the spice-less to the red-alarm, with greens, potato salad, white bread, pickles, and comeback sauce. Nashville’s Bearded Iris Brewing will also have beer to pair with the plates. [The O]

EVERGREEN — Seattle’s fast-casual salad chain Evergreens just acquired Portland’s fast-casual salad chain Garden Bar. Eventually, all of Portland’s Garden Bars will transform into Evergreens, which is known for its pop-culture-reference-laden salad names: We’re talking “The Notorious B.B.Q.” and “Dawson’s Greek.” [The O]

UNION FRED — After Portland-area grocery workers voted to approve a strike in July, the whole state is now following suit: A vote of grocery workers throughout the state and Southwest Washington have voted to approve a strike in case negotiations go south. The United Food and Commercial Workers Local 555, who represent employees of places like Safeway and Fred Meyer, should have updates today after their latest meeting last night; stay tuned for more information.
