Okay, so it took me a few days to notice this, but there's an article in last Wednesday's Willamette Week about a new bar/restaurant/apothecary named Apotheke, which is owned by my friends Caleb and Melodie McBee. (Melodie is the sister of the late JJ Turner, whom I honor in this blog's very first post.) Up until it first opened three Fridays ago, I had been watching the local papers for any mention of it, but there was nothing. Now, at least one paper's taken notice of the place, and it looks as though it got a favorable review.
If you're in the area, why not stop by. It's located in Portland's Pearl District at 1314 NW Glisan Street, on the second floor, above the Peruvian restaurant Andina and down the hall from RC Gallery. It's very, very white inside. You may need sunglasses.
