Post-Fire Support on Alberta Street

July 12, 2011

Gotta love these recent stories from The Oregonian:

Portland restaurants help fireworks-damaged eatery on Northeast Alberta Street

Alberta Street businesses pull together after fire

Hats off to Umpqua Bank and Stumptown Coffee Roasters for offering a hand. Plus Andy Ricker of Pok Pok fame and the owners of Firehouse step up for one of our neighborhood faves that finds itself a bit down on its luck. It makes us that much happier that Ricker opened his takeout spot, Noi, in the area. He had our business before, but this is reinforcement. We’ll be popping into Firehouse sometime soon as well. Here’s hoping the folks at Aviary are back in business ASAP.

    Neat story. Too bad that folks feel the need to set off illegal fireworks. I am not a great fan of any fireworks although I have to say that the 4th of July was magical with fireworks downtown and the new fireworks, that our state legislature allowed, filling the sky with color and sparkle. Reminded me of the Olympics here.

    • It really is too bad, especially when there are such consequences for people and businesses around you. I like fireworks as much as anyone, but the Fourth in our neighborhood was one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen.
