It’s Friday, which means it’s time for the weekly EaterWire round up of all those news items we didn’t quite cover. This week’s food news cycle was dominated by Nicolas Cage, who is in town for a movie about a truffle-hunting pig, but a few stories did fall through the cracks. Read on for more:

RIOT ON — Cider Riot owner Abram Goldman-Armstrong is selling his Southeast Portland cider house, which had been the site of a May clash between white supremacist groups and antifa activists. Goldman-Armstrong says a recent expansion created an overwhelming amount of debt; he hopes to keep running the cider house as an employee, and that any potential owner “share[s] [his] view on human rights.” [Willamette Week]

DAISY CHAIN — Johnny Nunn’s restaurant Daisy Cafe is going through yet another rebrand, its second this year. Instead of focusing on breakfast fare, Daisy Bar and Cafe will only serve a weekend brunch, instead focusing on dishes like peel-and-eat shrimp by the pound, potato-crusted oyster po’boys, fried chicken, and oysters on the half shell. The restaurant serves its first dinner service on October 2. [EaterWire]

CARTED IN — New food cart regulations may require pod owners to provide clean water, electricity, pest control, and wastewater disposal to cart owners. Currently, food carts are responsible for supplying those things themselves, but Multnomah County officials are considering putting that responsibility on the pod owners, requiring them to get a license. If put into effect, these new regulations would begin in January, just as carts begin receiving inspection scores. [The O]

CLOSING TACO TIMETacos & Tequila, the riverfront pop-up from King Tide Fish & Shell, closes for the season this weekend. All tacos, draft beers, and classic margaritas will be a dollar off on Saturday and Sunday from noon to close. [EaterWire]
