Inspired by the Portland brewing scene and his brother who resides here, California brewer, Tony Magee of Lagunitas Brewing Company, is returning to its Portland roots and has opened up an event space that is aimed at helping out local nonprofits. According to their website, On August 1st, Lagunitas opened the doors to their first Community Room, “dedicated 100% to supporting non-profits with their fundraising efforts. The beer and the space will be completely donated to any bona fide non-profit organization so that they can focus on raising the funds they need to carry out their respective missions. A Lagunitas team will be on-hand to ensure turnkey execution of the event and, most importantly, that all of their guests have a great time!”
The space can be reserved seven days a week and the 4,264 square foot space (formerly the Fontaine Bleu Nightclub) has no kitchen facilities but food carts will be on had to provide meals.

FishPeople purchased the building that used to house a beauty school for years. This is the corporate headquarters for FishPeople so no food sales or production are located onsite. Instead, the accounting, marketing and operations departments are busy at work to develop the products like the soups and entrée starters. You can find their products in New Seasons, Whole Foods, Fred Meyer (Hollywood location) and Safeway. Uniquely, there is a code on the packaging that you can plug into their website to track the fisherman who caught the fish that is in the package you just purchased. You can find out more about this unique idea on their website and they also are on Facebook and Instagram. Also they will be featured in an upcoming issue of the Eliot News with more interesting details and stories of their companies’ creation.
