See our picks below, from a vintage sale at Nordic Northwest to 600 Highwaymen's interactive performance A Thousand Ways (Part Two): An Encounter, and from places to get smoked meat for Barbecue Day (like Matt's BBQ) to a nostalgic Naomi Pizza Kitchen pop-up at Pop Pizza. For even more options, check out our guides to the best online events this week and the best things to do all month long.
FOOD & DRINK
Try some new recipes from Gregory Gourdet's cookbook. Local chef Gregory Gourdet, who previously competed on Top Chef and is featured on the current season in Portland as a judge, released his debut cookbook, Everyone's Table: Global Recipes for Modern Health, this Wednesday. The new book features approachable, globally inspired recipes with an emphasis on health and wellness, with dishes free from dairy, soy, legume, and gluten. Pick up a copy at Powell's or your other favorite local bookstore and whip up some flavorful dishes like slow-cooked salmon with Ti Malice sauce or grilled carrots with herby coconut yogurt and spicy beet vinaigrette.
