  1. Any word yet on ginkgo blue spot or Hyatt corner spot under contract?

    Also what happened to that maps place or whatever it’s called on market street? Hadn’t heard word about it since opening

    I think they’re already doing work on pepperclub spot. So is it confirmed that will be eventide?

    1. No word on anything in those spaces yet.

      Maps Cafe opened and is doing quite well. I like it. It’s in my regular rotation.

      Sunday was the last day of service at Pepperclub. They’re now packing up. While there are many theories, there’s no official word yet on what will go in at that location next.

  2. I’ll have to check maps out

    Wooden sign for sur lie is up and liquor is on shelves. Must be getting close. I think they’re gonna kill there

  3. Hi A – I’m giving a brown bag lunch “Portland Food” talk at the Portland Public Library on Friday at 12pm. There will be East End Cupcakes and books for sale. Thanks.
