❗️HOT TIP INCOMING! ❗️Tonight I went to a great happy hour event at @denimandgin
that highlighted a collection of gorgeous printed two piece skirt/crop top sets by designer @shopbrettadam.
The happy hour also featured complimentary food and drinks by @dvizzini
, a chef at @hunnymilkpdx.
READY FOR THE HOT TIP??
Chef Vizzini let me know that everyone's favorite weekend pop up @hunnymilkpdx
(brainchild of Brandon Weeks) has found a permanent home! The best part? It's literally a block from my apartment. 😱 They will be taking over the space formerly occupied by The Bitter End at 20th and W. Burnside, which is currently/temporarily the home of a 'Beer Bar' pop up on @timbersfc
The Hunnymilk team anticipates opening their doors in this new location in early September, and their plan is to offer their incredible savory/sweet dual brunch platters 5 days a week, Wednesday through Sunday. If you haven't had the pleasure of this brunch experience, trust me when I say it's one of the most delicious and interesting brunch concepts in Portland right now.
Equally exciting? Chef Donnie Vizzini will be using the space Friday-Sunday nights for a vegan burger pop up (@secretsauceburger
), serving 4 varieties of delectable vegan burgers. At tonight's event I tried one of his creations (pictured), a @beyondmeat
burger fancied up with a house-made tomato jam and mushroom duxelles. It was the kind of burger that vegans and omnivores alike will flock to, and I CANNOT wait to try more.
I can confidently say this is EXACTLY what the south end of the Alphabet District needs, and I think they are leading the charge for a culinary renaissance to rival the one that has happened in the north end of the neighborhood in the past few years.
Keep an eye on the @hunnymilkpdx
account for new developments and details, and follow @denimandgin
so you can go to their next happy hour event! It was such a good time. Check out my story for more!
