Future Drinking: This Week in OLCC Applications

Celeste Williams has applied for a beer and wine license for a restaurant called Bird Dog in the Hawthorne Boulevard space currently occupied by No Fish Go Fish. Stick with the animal puns, I guess.

The owners of newish St. Johns restaurant Cathedral Park Kitchen have applied for a license to open a distillery, Pure Lush Spirits in the same building. The infrequently updated blog mentions calvados. All together now: Ooooh!

Vancouver software developer Kevin Carbis has applied for a limited license for his new strip club, Portland Frat House.

New Seasons Market has applied for a license for the chain's new store at 14805 SW Barrows Road in Beaverton, the company's 11th location.

Hung Tuan Huynh has applied to open a restaurant—Huynh Gia, or "Huynh Family"—in the space formerly occupied by Ngoc Han Bun Bo Hue.

Steakadelphia has applied for a beer license. Beer! At Steakadelphia! I'm gonna get in line right now.

Sapphire Hotel co-owner Shannon McQuilkin and her husband, Eric, have applied for a license for a bar called The Box Social at 3971 N William Ave.—that's the space at the corner of North Shaver Street that recently held an art installation of twigs and red twine by Cascade Aids Project.

Someone—the corporate filing has no names but that of the lawyer who filed it—has applied for a liquor license for the former auto dealership at 2340 NE Sandy Blvd., under the name "Portland P Palace."

Ground Kontrol wants to serve more than wine and beer. I may finally be able to sip a Manhattan while destroying Manhattan in Rampage World Tour.

Glisan St. Pub is looking to do the same. But they don't have Rampage.

Bridgetown Beerhouse wants to start serving beer in addition to selling bottles.
