A New Food Cart Pod is Opening Near Moda Center

The indoor beer and wine bar will also help you avoid a huge booze tab in the arena.

Grabbing a bite and a beer before a Blazers game—or any event at Moda Center—is about to get a lot easier.

A new food cart pod called Cartside is opening just a few blocks away, at 1825 North Williams. Slated to open in January, it will house eight vendors serving a diverse range of cuisine, plus a 1,000-square-foot indoor beer and wine bar with 25 taps and seating areas with TVs.

The news should come as a relief for anyone looking to pre-game and avoid the always-overpriced beers in the arena.

By spring, developers expect to have completed a second-story covered deck offering views across the river. The pod is still taking applications for food carts interested in operating there.
