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 doozy of a news week — Southern supper club Mae opened, two big-deal spots decided to close, and anticipated Filipino restaurant Magna has an opening date — but there were a few little news nuggets that never got their day on the homepage. Read on for more:

EVERY RESTAURANT FOR GUN SAFETY — Following the shootings in Dayton and El Paso last weekend, chef Troy MacLarty has decided to raise money for gun control activists and lobbyists. On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, he donated 10 percent of Bollywood Theater sales to Everytown for Gun Safety; this weekend, he plans to donate 15 percent of the ticket sales for his Indian supper club Churchgate Station. Reservations are still available for those interested. [EaterWire]

WHO’S THAT LITTLE BURGER IN THE WINDOWBurger Stevens, the beloved burger cart that started flipping patties at Dig a Pony last year, will finally open its walk-up burger window within the SE Grand bar. Starting August 13, customers can walk up to the Morrison side of the building and order burgers from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Bar-crawlers should get excited, however; down the line, owner Don Salamone will open the window from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. [EaterWire]

NO HOLIDAY — After no word for months, it’s now confirmed: Health-food cafe and coffee bar Holiday will not reopen downtown. Earlier this year, people started to notice that Duane Sorenson’s cafe had closed after a just a few weeks in its new location; Sorenson made no comment online, and it was unclear what was going on with the space. This week, Sorenson broke his silence, saying that Holiday will not reopen downtown. [The Oregonian]
